Original Starting post for this thread:
So they go to the trouble of making a poly forum and then no one posts here. So here is my question for poly folks. Do you have different rules for your poly relationships than you do for swinging? And I am assuming that you swing in addition to having poly relationships because why else would you be on this site?

All situations are slightly different. Tiffany, I am more like you than others who post where it sounds more like either a 3-4 person family, or a fuck-fest. The key "rule" is communication followed closely by "mutual consent". Other than that, just enjoy each other(s) on all levels!

I have what I consider a poly lifestyle with major swinging tendencies. LOL

I have 4 lovers that I care very much for. I don't have a favorite because they are all different personalities. And if any of them made me choose, I'd ask the one choosing to leave. Ultimatums never work at any level.

But I also have 3-4 lovers that are fun, occasional play times.

1 lover is exclusive to me, 2 have 1 other lover and 1 has a 4-5 others.

All know that protection is a must because I am protecting 8-9 people.

Any time there is a major change in dynamics, I talk to each of them to make sure there is a consensus. And I can be overruled! I want to hurt none of them, and work very hard to keep that from happening by communicating as much as possible with each.

I'm not built like most people. I don't love as society expects. I do care deeply and am very loyal, may even be willing to die for you! But I can also walk away when the relationship has come to an end. I'll cry, but I'll live, move on, and invariably find someone new to care for. And I live alone. Ideally, my primary 4 would live all around me, but that just won't happen. LOL. A pipe dream.

Cougar82, That's why, "it's not what's right or wrong. But what's important to people". "Opinions are like ass holes, everyone has one".

I am an ornery fucker on another site I started a thread what's the difference between a hooker and swinger and God loves us all the same and it was tongue in cheek also but God Almighty I thought their data base was going to fry lol. I got call everything from a judgemental prick to the anti Christ. God I loved it. I just sat back and watched all the post come in. Ok I baited them some from time to time lmao. It did though make me realize that everybody thinks their brand of sin is whiter than everybody else's

Here's the best thing about Polyamory, just like swinging you get to make your own rules!! You decide and design the relationship that works for you.

That's a good rule regardless of whether one is Poly, LS, or Vanilla.

I'm the male half of the relationship and we've recently started a poly relationship with a friend of my wife's. The only rule we have is I need to know what is going on, no secrets.
