Trust and Polyamory

A 24-year-old female named Bachman wrote on Lil’ Rostrum about something with which I am familiar.

In referring to polyamory, she writes…

You have to be safe no matter what's going on. I wouldn't mess with someone I didn't fully know or trust.

This is good advice. Being alone in a sexual situation with someone you don’t know every well can be dangerous, especially if you are not as strong as the other person or people, or you are in an unfamiliar place. The relationship I personally know best involves three people who couldn’t trust each other more. That makes it all the more beautiful. Consanguineous relationships have a special advantage here.

The relationships for a polyamory couple can get very complicated, but there are many groups of poly people that are a 'triad' or consisting of three people. There are many different labels for the many different couplings.

We have been trying to think of a succinct way to fully describe the triad relationship between mother, daughter, and son. Perhaps Polyamorous Consanguine Marriage (PCM) would work?

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
