I'm 'polyamorous'. That means that I have or desire multiple open and honest romantic/sexual relationships. 'Polyamory' is not the same thing as cheating or swinging; 'cheating' is a form of failed monogamy, and swinging focuses more on sex while polyamory focuses more on relationships. (Note that it certainly is possible to cheat in a poly relationship, but cheating as a social practice is strongly linked to monogamy.)

My partner and I practice what's known as 'primary/secondary' polyamory. We consider ourselves married (we had an Outlaw Wedding 2/22/1998) and our secondary partners are good friends. For more information, see the following resources:
