I know, what a treat! Hence why I love sharing my book reviews when I discover something delightful. So which literary genres do I most adore?
But this is really just the start, as there are so many amazing books out there and I want to consume them all. Polyamory, ethical non-monogamy, open relationships… there are many terms used to describe relationship models that fit under the non-monogamy umbrella.
An open relationship is usually though, not always built around one couple. This couple would see this romantic relationship as the centre of their universe, with other sexual partners as separate but affiliated elements — quite like planets orbiting their sun.
Often, they have been monogamous in the past and could opt to do so again in the future. While there are no standard open relationship rules, most couples will have agreements about different sexual practices, including safe sex.
The majority of couples in open relationships are happy for their partners to have sex with other people but are usually opposed to them forming any romantic connections outside of the relationship. They are generally sexually open to varying extents but romantically exclusive. Their focus is primarily on their relationship but they are open to one or both partners occasionally having sex with other people. This label is especially relevant to couples who have an open marriage but prefer to keep up the outward appearance of being monogamous.
I usually associate swingers as people who are specifically part of the swinging scene going to swinger parties and clubs rather than a couple who sometimes have sex with other people. However, polyamorous relationships obviously existed long before this word came into use. For me, polyamory embraces this idea that life is full of many loves and that some of these can occur concurrently.
There are many polyamorous relationship types. Hierarchical polyamory is where two people see each other as their Open to a polyamorous relationship partner and any other partners as secondary partners. In contrast to this, there is egalitarian or non-hierarchical polyamory where everyone is treated equally.
Not everyone in this network will necessarily be polyamorous but they will usually practice some form of ethical non-monogamy although there are people who are monogamous with a non-monogamous partner. My favourite non-binary actor Ezra Miller talked about their love for their polycule in an interview with Playboy in When considering polyamory vs open relationships, I think the key difference is primarily romantic love. Polyamory focuses on having emotionally engaged, supportive relationships with multiple people, often simultaneously.
Open relationships focus on having one core romantic relationship but multiple sexual partners. Aside from hierarchical polyamory, most polyamorous relationships consist of an interconnected network of sexual and romantic partners. Some people have very successful open relationships. For them, having one person as their romantic partner but multiple sexual partners is a structure that suits them perfectly. This could mean that the open relationship ends but it also could mean that this couple transition into polyamory or something similar.
Some people have long, enriching polyamorous relationships.
For them, the support and love of multiple partners is a beautiful thing. Others try polyamory, only to discover that while they may be polysexual, they are monoromantic as in, they only want one romantic partner at a time. Thankfully, as you can now see, there are many different ways to explore ethical non-monogamy. Address. A lifestyle blog for everyone who questions the norm.
