Kentucky Polyamory

 

Polyamory is the philosophy and practice of loving or relating intimately to more than one other person at a time with honesty and integrity. It's also known as responsible nonmonogamy or multi-partnering. Polyamory can take several forms, such as polyfidelity (a closed group), open marriage, open relationships, or intimate networks.

Ohio Valley Poly

Ohio Valley Poly is the list of the Ohio Valley Polyamory Network website. In establishing this list we hope that people in the Ohio Valley region (those in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana or as far away as they are willing to travel) will be able to find each other. We would like this list to be a place where those sincerely interested in polyamory can network with one another and cultivate community wherever they may be.
