” How do I know whether I can deal with a polyamorous relationship or not?” is a million-dollar question which young and curious munchkins wonder and write to Amma about! Fret not, Amma is here to answer it.
To be polyamorous means to have sexual and romantic relationships with more than one partner at the same time. People who are polyamorous can be heterosexual, lesbian, gay, or bisexual, and relationships between polyamorous people can include combinations of people of different sexual orientations. Oh, the possibilities are endless!
My dear idli, get it out of your head that it’s cheating. If your partner doesn’t wish to include other people in the relationship and isn’t aware that you’re seeing other people, then it is cheating. In polyamory, all the partners are aware of the existence of each other.
Being in a polyamorous relationship doesn’t mean that you can sleep with whomever you want. It is extremely important to have honest and open communication in polyamorous relationships. It is not to be confused with open relationships as well. In open relationships, people seek partners to just have consensual sex with, but in polyamorous relationships, they have romantic relationships with multiple partners too, other than just sex.
Let Amma tell you the many advantages of being in a polyamorous relationships. You can love as many people as you
want to without worrying about breaking someone’s heart. Having multiple partners will reward you with many new sexual experiences which Amma can totally vouch for. However, it has its downsides too. Practicing polyamory is considered a taboo that persists, since polyamory is not socially acceptable yet. If one of your partners is monogamous, there is a high chance that they might feel a tinge of jealousy. Amma herself had a tough time balancing the schedules and needs of different partners. But when she did manage to do it, she had some of the best
sexual experiences of her life.
It depends on you, my munchkin. If you are unsure whether polyamory might suit you, ask yourself whether you would be okay with having romantic relationships with multiple people at the same time. Contemplate whether the polyamorous relationship is meeting your needs of closeness and intimacy.
