What does Love look like within Polyamory? Can someone really Love more than one person? Is love always equal? There a variety of ways to feel and express Love. No one way is going to work for everyone. Consensual non-monogamy is just as valid as monogamy. Love is love is love. No matter the form of love – love is magical and special. Platonic love, romantic love, and all other loves inbetween. If you’d like to read some articles about Love, please click here. If you’re new to Polyamory and looking for some place to start…Love is a pretty great beginning.
Our Identity is who we are. It encompasses all internal and external pieces of our being. It’s what makes us who we are.
There are many components that go into crafting ones Identity; such as religion and childhood experiences. On Polyamorous Living we focus on specific aspects of identity that cover both the non-monogamous components, as well as the LGBTQIA+ components. Check out our articles on Identity, here.
Consent is the most important component of Polyamory. Without it – it isn’t Polyamory. Polyamory is a Consensual form or Non-Monogamy. There are Non-Consensual forms of Non-Monogamy, as well, such as cheating. We do NOT condone any form of Non-Consensual relationship type (Non-Monogamous, or otherwise)!
If you’d like to learn more about Consent, please click here to read an array of articles on the topic. One of our columnists have also written a column called Consent Corner that covers a lot of different aspects of consent, if you’d like to check that out please click here.
Communication is absolutely key to the success of any relationship – Polyamorous ones, especially. Communication comes second only to consent. Communication is an essential factor in creating and maintaining healthy relationships of any sort. If you’d like to browse through our articles on Communication, please click here.
Dating is hard enough…add in multiple partners – forget about it. Whether in-person, online, or some other form of close- or long- distance dating, it can be tricky. We have lots of useful information about Dating on our website. Click here if you’d like to browse our Dating category.

Sex can range from very vanilla to krazy kinky! For some Sex is a vital piece of a romantic relationship. For others it isn’t so important. Then there’s many who fall on the Asexual spectrum who have feelings ranging from disgust to very specific needs/feelings before Sex is a possibility. Of course, sometimes all a relationship is about is Sex. Those relationships are 100% valid, too. No matter your personal preferences, or relationships to Sex, we’ve got you covered with lots of information to help keep your Sex lives happy and healthy.
*Note: We support all sex workers and all sex work on our page! Shaming of any kind is strictly prohibited!
What do all these letters mean anyway? Well…L is for Lesbian, G is for Gay, B is for Bisexual, T is for Transgender, Q is for Queer/Questioning, I is for Intersex, A is for Asexual, and the + is for everything else. There are many, many varieties of how to write this acronym. None are better than the others. Honestly, sometimes it can be exhausting to try and keep up with all the added letters. What’s important is to realize that both sexual/romantic Orientation and Gender are on a spectrum (some may say they’re fluid). There is a lot of diversity out there! Our uniqueness is something to be proud of! Don’t hide who you are!
Though we specialize in Polyamory, we often discuss LGBTQIA+ topics within our articles. Many of our contributors are part of the LGBTQIA+ community. We do everything we can to try and intertwine both the Polyamorous community and the LGBTQIA+ community, without causing any erasure of the individual struggles of either. Both communities are very dear to our hearts. Find information about different LGBTQIA+ related topics, by browsing our Gender category or our Orientation category. If there is anything specific you’d like us to write about, please let us know.
Visit our Children category to see the full list of articles we have relating to Children. OR, visit our POrenting in a Nutshell category to browse all the articles in our Polyamorous Parenting column. Involving our kids in polyamory – to any capacity – can be a very controversial topic. We’d like to be VERY clear that Polyamory, in itself, does not inherently corrupt or negatively impact anyone’s kids. It is the individual impact of the people involves and the way in which a parent goes about parenting and dating that will ultimately be the deciding factors in how being polyamorous will affect a child. In other words, it has nothing to do with Polyamory. If you create a healthy, loving environment for your child to thrive in…they will. If you create a selfish, or otherwise unhealthy, situation it will be detrimental to your child. This applies whether you are non-monogamous or monogamous, or even single. Who you are and how you treat your children is what matters – not who you choose to date, or who you fall in love with.
