Oh I 100% agree with you! It's just that a lot of people don't, unfortunately. It's just like with abortion rights - a person having an abortion has nothing to do with anybody else, but people MAKE it their business. And with marijuana - same thing. Gay marriage - same. People love to make none-of-their-business into their-most-important-business. It sucks.

As for polyamory being better than adultery, never thought about that, but that's a good point (assuming all the people involved are on the same page about it!).

Anyway, I say screw society's shackles and just do you!

I personally dont know what I am, I had one fling with a girl once, because I was curious. Anyway sometimes I find my self looing at  women.

 I have a lot of gay and lesbian friend tho. Love em and would not want anything different.

I would like to point out that for many polyamorous people, they're not seeing polyamory as a lesser-of-two-evils compared to adultery. There are soooo many ways to be polyamorous and to structure your relationships and/or sexual partners. To some who insist on a very specific definition of monogamy for all couples, they're just as horrified by couples that might be open to a third sexual partner on a limited basis who was into both of them as they are by people who do whomever whenever they want within the bounds of protected sex and consent. But it's really not the same thing at all. And, IMO, neither are inherently wrong, but they can become just as messed up as any dysfunctional traditional marriage.


Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

@Skylark
You're very right for pointing out it's not a fix for wanting to sleep around or experiment with threesomes.

Ultimately each polyrelationship has its own set of 'rules' (what is/isn't okay to do with others). Polyamory as a whole can get very messy.

And likewise, so can monogamy, especially when people are involved. ;-)
