An approach to polyamory that focuses on individual autonomy rather than a couple-centric structure. People who practice solo poly generally do not seek to build relationships that resemble traditional couplings with the ultimate goal of partnership. Instead, they opt to maintain freedom and flexibility in pursuing and shaping each new relationship.
Polyamorous relationships in which all the people involved are to some degree physically and/or romantically involved with one another, with the implication that the people involved may share sex and/or sleeping space.
The state or practice of having more than one sexual partner, either at the same time or over the course of one’s lifetime, without regard to the relationship with those partners or their relationships with each other.
