Polyamory: It is the idea that you can love more than one person as long as you’re doing it openly, honestly and with the full consent and participation of all involved.
Valerie White will tell you all different aspects of Polyamory. Where do people find each other who are poly amorous? Why would you get involved in Polyamory? Is it a choice or orientation? Does the 3rd person live with the first couple? How does that work? Anyways, it’s a fascinating subject no matter if your are a part of it or not.

“My feeling about technique in art is that it has about the same value as technique in lovemaking. Heartfelt ineptitude has its appeal and so does heartless skill; but what you want is passionate virtuosity.” John Barth, Giles Goat Boy
