Polyamory: A Primer

Polyamory is a word you may have heard a lot of in recent years, but what is it?

The word root “Poly” means “many” and Amory means “love”. The term in it’s most literal sense means “many loves”. Polyamory is the notion that we can love more than one person romantically at once. A simple definition, but one that is often confused with several other non traditional lifestyles (mostly having to do with sex).
