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.
