Polyamorous people


Are polyamorous people just sluts who can't keep it in their pants?

This seems a weird post for someone who joined in 2015. Are you drunk? It's okay if you are, because I am

I'm surprised you didn't go with your standard thread title format. "Fuck Polyamorous people!"
But to answer your usual extremely loaded and generalized question, it depends.

Promiscuity has been around since the dawn of time. Polyamorous is just a more hip name for it. The slutty girl that was in my highschool grew up to be a slutty adult. Married 3 times. I see her occasionally. She's actually a nice Lady.

From Wiki:

Quote:
Polyamory (from Greek πολύ poly, "many, several", and Latin amor, "love") is the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the consent of all partners involved.[1][2]
This may mean that the relationships are open. It may mean that the parties involved are committed to one another, but there just happen to be more than 2 of them. It may mean that some of them are committed and some of them aren't.

I think slutty is a poor way to describe it.

No. It just means that some folks do not consider sexual exclusively as an integral part of their relationships. Communication is key, and as long as you all agree there is no negative.

This. Just because you don't understand polyamory, doesn't mean they're "slutty."

Maybe you want to try again?

He sounds far more promiscuous than the woman, why is your example about her, other than the old double standard?

He was. He was a slutty man. She was a slutty woman. I should have introduced them to each other. The could go all polyamorous together.

Who was the poster here who tried stand up comedy. I loved one of his jokes: “How many people here are in an open relationship” (pause) “that they know about?”

I know some people who are in polyamorous relationships. They like it.

It’s too complicated for me, though.

About how many people does someone have to have sex with before you consider them "slutty"?

It is. Perhaps "always ready to fuck and thinking about it a lot" would be a more appropriate label.

You know...A.D.I.D.A.S.

As a friend of mine put it, shortly after her husband left her, "There's a difference between being poly and sleeping around until you find someone else you'd rather be with."

I've known some poly people who were in long-term, stable poly relationships. I've known lots of people who were in unstable or unsuccessful ones.

Why is it on me to consider them slutty? It was a general consensus. I didn't make up the rules of promiscuity.
Let me tell you about my best friend Sophie.
She's a garden variety hottie. I didn't make her that way. I didn't label her that way. It's just the way she is. When she divorced she purposefully set out to screw around. She told me straight up she was a slut. I don't think it is as bad as you think to be a slut. It may just be the semantics. I dont think its gender specific either.

The OP comes from a guy who wishes his ONE super power to be able to make women suck his dick when he snaps his fingers.

He's got a few other lovely posts on this board as well.

Just so you know where the OP is coming from.

It's on you because you know an active slut specimen currently in the wild (which is SUPER important to science to observe them in their natural state) and are providing bad, bad, BAD observational data about your friend whom I consequently now want to fuck. Thanks. Maybe you can be my liasion with your friend. I have been known to drive long distances for sluts, especially if they live in a trailer home and their first name is Tanqueray.

To be fair, that's an impressive superpower. But there's NO WAY I would choose that as my ONLY one. It would have to be part of an options package, like on cars but for superheroes.

You're invisible, you can fly, women also suck your Wang computer's dongle...at the snap of a finger.

The word "slut" is commonly considered to be a slur on someone's (always a woman's, according to the dictionary) character. How bad a slur it is may vary by local culture and usage, but it is never less than a condemnation, that I have ever run into. I believe you are being tasked with the sexual double standard that words like "slut" apply only to women, while men who behave even more promiscuously are only called, at worst, pigs. I believe it was an effort to call your attention to your (perhaps) unthinkingly falling into this usage without paying deeper attention to it, and how words like "slut" harm all women, even when one uses it about herself.

Polyamory, on the other hand, has nothing to do with promiscuity per se. It could be three people who have never had sex with anyone but the other two in the group, and it could expand to anything outward from there. So you cannot conclude that someone is promiscuous just because they are part of a polyamorous arrangement.

I sell cars for a living; I understand this language! Features!

"This car isn't cheap, it's inexpensive!"

"Yeah your cock won't fit in the tailpipe, that's what greased knotholes are for...", etcetera.

Deal with this ALL...THE...TIME. Diesel lovers are the worst brand loyalists but at least their cocks fit in the Duramax tailpipe as it's 3" in diameter.

I just told a 7'2" customer dude the other day how to properly lube up said 3" tailpipe with DEF fluid. He was golden after that. I'm good at my job, AND flexible (time permitting).

Way to pass judgement on something you clearly don't understand,!

I have some friends, I don't think they'd mind being used for illustrative purposes in this instance. They're in a triad. I was in the wedding of Boy and Girl A. They added Girl B to the mix sometime after the wedding. They are stable, loving, committed, and not even a little slutty, easy, self indulgent or immoral. They're awesome and all three of them love each other very much, and wouldn't cheat on their shared relationship. As opposed to many men and women who pretend to be monogamous but cheat regularly. Who is immoral?

I came into this thread to make an extremely similar (but undoubtedly less eloquent) post (though it's unlikely that your friends and mine are the same people, but who knows?) The married couple have been together for ~20 years; the third member of the triad came in at least five years ago. Like your friends, mine are happy, and all love one another.

I'm not polyamorous, and I suspect that I'd suffer from the jealousy issues that apparently make it not work for some people who try it. But, it clearly does work for some people, and I certainly wouldn't classify them as "slutty" or "immoral."

Monogamy works wonderfully well for a lot of people. It doesn't work well for some people, and, as raventhief says, it's the people who feign monogamy while cheating who are the immoral ones.

Why does it need another term? You've already mentioned the correct term in your OP. It's polyamorous. They are people. Real people. Human-fucking-beings. Like any group of people, you will have some who are immoral, some who are self-indulgent, some who are easy...
Those types of people exist within every subset of the population--not just the polyamorous. But to say "all" polyamorous people are X, is just wrong. To ever say that all of any group is X, is almost always innaccurate. The only thing that ALL poly people have in common is that they are all poly.

The poly people I know fall into that category too. I think the folks who reflexively denigrate all poly relationships as "slutty" or "easy" or "immoral" are probably just sour grapesing.

In fact, they sound exactly like the curtain-twitchers from a couple generations ago who reflexively denigrated all single people who had premarital sex as "slutty" or "easy" or "immoral". Lighten up, Gramps, and try minding your own business about other consenting adults' personal sex lives.

They added Girl B to the mix sometime after the wedding. They are stable, loving, committed, and not even a little slutty, easy, self indulgent or immoral. They're awesome and all three of them love each other very much, and wouldn't cheat on their shared relationship. As opposed to many men and women who pretend to be monogamous but cheat regularly. Who is immoral?

I'm not polyamorous, and I suspect that I'd suffer from the jealousy issues that apparently make it not work for some people who try it. But, it clearly does work for some people, and I certainly wouldn't classify them as "slutty" or "immoral."

Monogamy works wonderfully well for a lot of people. It doesn't work well for some people, and, as raventhief says, it's the people who feign monogamy while cheating who are the immoral ones.
That these relationships exist is pretty cool I guess. I wonder what the percentage skew is on triads vis a vis 2 males 1 woman versus 2 women 1 man. As a man, I can say I tend to lean towards the 2 women 1 man scenario. The sex would be better but your life would be more complicated, which, as a divorcee, I am actively seeking. Gimme that drama mamma!

Those types of people exist within every subset of the population--not just the polyamorous. But to say "all" polyamorous people are X, is just wrong. To ever say that all of any group is X, is almost always innaccurate. The only thing that ALL poly people have in common is that they are all poly.

In fact, they sound exactly like the curtain-twitchers from a couple generations ago who reflexively denigrated all single people who had premarital sex as "slutty" or "easy" or "immoral". Lighten up, Gramps, and try minding your own business about other consenting adults' personal sex lives.
"Gramps", that is a new one.

Coming from you, it would be like a term of affection.
