What the heck is "polyamory" anyway?
Polyamory is word that means “Many Loves.” In practice, it means the idea or practice of openly and honestly loving more than one person at a time in a romantic and/or sexual manner. Polyamorous people believe that “love shared is love multiplied.” There are many ways to “do” polyamory (or ‘poly’ for short), but at the heart of all of them is the idea that love is a wonderful and beautiful thing, and that at least for some people, it’s natural to express that love for multiple partners at the same time.
Here's a blog entry I wrote a while back, that you might find informative:
