Last month the Metro carried an article on polyamory in which they asked the question:
What are the benefits of a poly relationship?
You can experience a unique and lasting love with more than one person, which opens you up to lots of different experiences with multiple people.
You can do this without having sex, unless those “different experiences” are having sex.
If you’re feeling down, or need support, you’ll have more than one loving partner to turn to – which will add increased comfort and reassurance.
When in need of support, is it really necessary that it comes from more than one person you’re having sex with?
It’s also a good setup for those who like to get creative in bed – with everyone being into different things in the bedroom, a person who wants to try lots of things can get experimental with more than one person, and learn things from multiple lovers.
Ah, it’s mainly about sex, then. I’ve noticed this before.
