Well, I think I’ve seen a few tri/polyamorist/polygamists here, in the past. though the current board search software problematic enough that I’m having trouble searching for specifics.
Anyway, at the risk of being crass, I’m finally curious enough to ask anyone here who’s in, or has had experience in such a domestic arrangement…what were the sleeping arrangements like?
Quite literally, I mean. Where did everyone actually sleep? Same bed, separate beds, separate rooms? How much does mattress size actually factor in?
Did/does everyone stake out their own spot/side on the mattress—and did actual relationship dynamics figure into that, or did it just boil down to who was more comfy where?
How bad was the quilt/pillow hogging problem? What happens when someone gets the flu?
Granted, a lot of these issues might only be marginally more complicated than a simple couple sharing a bed; but I’m single, and the closest experience I’ve had to date is the occasional dog sleeping on my feet, so I’m pretty much in the dark.
(Maybe next time I’ll try and think up some saucier questions…probably something exciting like “how crazy is your Netflix queue by now?”)
