Another Polyamory Thread at Cafemom.com


It seems the topic of polyamory is discussed frequently at cafemom.com. Clearing my desk, I found this question that was posed a few weeks back: "Are you, or could you be, polyamorous?" This was asked by o0orange0o, who wrote...
I don't think I have the energy to maintain more than one relationship myself (though I would want that option) but I could easily have a relationship with someone who was seeing others at the same time. 
The responses I saw back when I first found the discussion were mostly negative, most along the lines of "it's not for me." One person called it cheating. I did see a response that said "yes, I think it's a smart idea."

It is great that the topic is coming up more often in discussion forums because that gives people a change to learn more about it. There will always be naysayers that say that nobody should do it (mostly because they themselves don't like the idea), but that is easily shown to be an overbearing, prejudiced position.

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 yahoo 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.
