Day 6. Polyamory

 

What a topic right? As I alluded to yesterday, I can’t talk about all that goes on in my life without first bringing up some non-PC topics. Polyamory is one of those.

First a quick description:

Polyamory (from Greek πολύ [poly], meaning “many” or “several”, and Latinamor, “love”) is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved

I have my Hubby, and I also have my boyfriend. It’s work. A whole lot more than I had thought. But I wouldn’t change it. Now the boyfriend is new, going on 4 weeks. But with bringing in the boyfriend it has helped mine and my Hubby’s relationship as well.

Here’s another term for you:

Skin Hunger:

Skin hunger is a relatively new term that has been applied to the emotional response engendered by the loss of touch in our society. One of the five basic senses, touch is the only one deemed essential to human life. During WW II babies in orphanages developed Failure to thrive or even died when deprived of human contact

Both my Hubby and the boyfriend have great big heaps of skin hunger. I don’t, and never really have. It comes to my past, but because of those two I’m learning to be open and able to handle touch.

Yes, polyamory isn’t for everyone. Am I going to try and convince you to try it? No. Everyone has lifestyle of their own, and you must live your own life.

  1. Some amount of recognition here… Skin hunger was new to me. I’ll have to think about that. (And Inorite – poly seem to come down to time management sometimes!)
