Welcome to our online resource and community for and about polyamory and polyamorous relationships & lifestyles.
Polyamorous Percolations strives to provide a comprehensive resource for people actively living in, curious about or affected by a polyamorous relationship. We believe that everyone deserves the right to live their life in whichever safe, healthy, respectful and consensual manner they feel suitable to their own personal preferences.
We believe that Polyamory is a growing part of society and We are able to provide a centralized source of information for anyone who wishes to learn more about our community. Our goal is to become a leader in the education and promotion of the polyamorous lifestyle.
As such our site offers:
- Numerous original columns published monthly by a volunteer staff of contributing writers currently a part of the Polyamorous Community
- Tracking and providing links to polyamory related media materials; of both a positive and negative nature
- Republishing (with appropriate permission and accreditation) other articles and publications that we deem valuable educational material
- a list of terms and definitions commonly used within polyamorous relationships
- Answers to some Frequently Asked Questions through our FAQ's page
- An interactive means for people to communicate with us, through our user forums as well as our Letters to The Editor section
Our broader mission is to build a community where anyone living a lifestyle deemed to be "alternative" can feel comfortable interacting with other like-minded individuals, find support and general information in a centralized location via the internet.
Through the use of our Forums we hope to unite people from all over the world who are living or considering the polyamorous lifestyle.
Not sure exactly what Poly is?
Polyamory is the practice or lifestyle of being part of more than one long-term, intimate, and (usually but not necessarily) sexual loving relationship at the same time, with the full knowledge and consent of all partners involved. Persons who consider themselves emotionally suited to such relationships may define themselves as polyamorous, often abbreviated to poly.
Although often treated as synonymous, polyamory is not the same as open relationships; a person may have more than one close emotional or sexual partner and yet not be "open" to others (polyfidelity), or may have an agreement to allow multiple partners but not form the long term emotional bonds with them which are defining within polyamory (eg swinging).
We are a community of humans, mothers, fathers, husbands & wives. We live, we love, we think, we breath. We are a community of like-minded individuals who want to share our experiences with others.
We are not professionals, psychiatrists, psychologists or doctors of any kind. We have no degree in any social science, we study polyamory in the daily classroom that is our lives. The pages of this community represent our opinions and those of our members.
We hope you enjoy your stay with us! Please do check back often as things are always changing in our little online community.
