I have never enjoyed typical monogamy.
It makes me think of dowries and possessive prairie voles who mate for life and historically all monogamous relationship models have owned women in some way – with marriage there for financial purposes and the ownership of property.
For the last few years I’ve defined myself as a polyamorist.
Friends before defined me as a ‘friendly philanderer’.
I love to kiss people.
Friends usually or women who wear polo-necks.
Polyamory is consensual non- monogamy.
It’s a philosophy.
Rather than the active pursuing of multiple partners in a lascivious way – it’s the embracing and understanding that it’s possible to fall in love and have relationships with more than one person at the same time.
Alongside developing CEO-worthy skills in multitasking – polyamory is the most empowering way of loving that I have encountered.
It gives women more autonomy than other relationship models ever have.
