Polyamory, sometimes also referred to as “ethical non-monogamy”, or “consensual non-monogamy” is at its essence the ability and/or desire to love and be in relationship with more than one person, while being completely honest about that with all others one is intimately involved with. When done well, it can allow for a fuller expression of sex and love than is usually available in more traditional relationships.
The struggles in a polyamorous lifestyle usually involve issues of communication, insecurity and jealousy, fear of losing the loved other, and an inability to feel in control in the usual sense that people in more traditional configurations might feel.
Polyamory, in some ways is the last frontier of coming out. There is probably no group of people who are venturing into a world that is so deeply misunderstood. The culture that believes that monogamy is the only way and cultural oppression. Monogamy
