Polyamory has become a buzzword in recent years with more people experimenting in it and more people feeling open to converse about it all around the world.
I was first introduced to polyamory whilst performing at the Adelaide Fringe in 2014 thanks to a wonderful collection of international performers, each from a different part of the world and each with a different experience of polyamorous relationships and how they work. Now I've been experimenting being polyamorous for nearly a year. It has been awesome, eye opening and through it I have met brilliant people, learnt more about love and have developed great relationships with those around me. The polyamorous community is a supportive and dynamic one.
However there are still lots of misconceptions about polyamory and what it entails.
CRUCIALLY - Many still assume that polyamory is just another way for people to get to sleep around with lots of people, without any consequences, without having to commit to anything. WHICH IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE, MUM.
Thus, I thought I would shed some light to those who are interested in experimenting in polyamory by writing out the top 20 things to expect.
