You may have heard the term polyamory being tossed around lately and wondered what it is. Well, it's probably not what you think. Polyamory isn't a trend that originated in Utah or anything like that, though it may be confused with polygamy. Nor does it have anything to do with swinging. Polyamory is engaging in a relationship with more than one person with the full consent and knowledge of all parties involved. And unlike swinging, in which participants only engage in sex acts, the relationship is not exclusively sexual, though it may include sex. Basically, more than two people agree to an exclusively non-monogamous relationship with one another. The combinations of genders are endless, and participants may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual or otherwise.
