    • 31. Definitions of Polyamory <ul><li>Responsible/ethical/honest non-monogamy </li></ul><ul><li>Having sex with more than one man </li></ul><ul><li>A deep, emotional, sometimes physical relationship with more than one partner simultaneously </li></ul><ul><li>Relationship with multiple people in which everyone knows about each other and is okay about it. </li></ul><ul><li>Having multiple concurrent romantic relationships with the full informed, uncoerced consent of all parties. </li></ul>
    • 32. More Poly Definitions <ul><li>Believing that we can love more than one person at the same time, with or without sexual engagement. </li></ul><ul><li>An exploration into conscious relating that doesn't subscribe to the conventional paradigm of lifelong marriage. Rather than revolving around the couple, it revolves around the individual as a whole and evolving person. Based on non-possessive love. </li></ul>
    • 33. Do you experience jealousy when your partner/lover appears interested in someone new? <ul><li>Females – 54% </li></ul><ul><li>Males – 39% </li></ul><ul><li>Poly Enculturated – 53% </li></ul><ul><li>Single Heterosexuals – 67% </li></ul><ul><li>Gay Men – 67% </li></ul><ul><li>Bisexual Women – 52% </li></ul>

    • 35. It varies: sometimes I'm genuinely happy for them (both), sometimes I have to force myself to be realistic so as to not feel jealous. Sometimes I'm openly jealous and sometimes I feel indifferent. Compersion Comments It depends on whether I've met and liked the other person. My boyfriend tends to chose poorly for himself, so I'm suspicious until I meet this new person. My husband has no other partners.
    • 36. More Compersion Comments <ul><li>It's complicated. :-) I am happy that my partner had a great time. But that doesn't mean that hearing all of the details is particularly easy. </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. Usually depends on where I am with my own insecurities. </li></ul>

    • 40. My dream/current reality is being part of a residential group marriage. <ul><li>Females – 38% </li></ul><ul><li>Males – 49% </li></ul><ul><li>Poly Enculturated – 40% </li></ul><ul><li>Single Heterosexuals – 16% </li></ul><ul><li>Gay Men – 30% </li></ul><ul><li>Bisexual Women – 42% </li></ul>
