Poly Communication Yay!

So, I went to my third orgy yesterday (which is really far less exciting than it sounds, but still completely awesome) and when I was coming into the house after sitting in the hot tub I walked through a conversation that reminded me why I love poly so much. 

They were having a safer sex catch up conversation, half naked, in the middle of the kitchen, with people walking in and out of the room to grab food, and this was treated like the most normal thing in the world.  And it really was.  

I don’t know too many subcultures where that’s true, and it is one of the things I absolutely love about it.  Free and open communication.

26. What’s been the most rewarding thing about non-monogamy?

Dating, sexing, and falling in love and having the support of my partner(s).

27. What’s been the most challenging thing about non-monogamy?

Being on the other side of the equation.

28. What do you think is important for a successful non-monogamous relationship?

Understanding and forgiveness.  People will make mistakes along the way, and being able to realize what your mistakes are and learn from them is essential.  On the other side, you should know which mistakes are forgiveable and which are deal-breakers.
