Group Description

Polyamory Social Group in Rochester, Minnesota.

Once there are a few members, we will begin to have socials in some public place in Rochester. Please don't bother to join if you are not around Southern Minnesota.

Appropriate list topics will have anything to do with polyamorous issues, relationship issues, local social activities notices, asking for or offering advice on any of the above mentioned. Personal ads are welcome.

What Polyamory Is
Polyamory, translated, means "many loves." Briefly, a polyamorous person is one who feels it is natural to romantically love more than just one person at a time. A polyamorous person may have more than one person that s/he considers to be a "spouse," for example. Polyamory is about love, without constraint by the dictates of society, defined only by the parameters that we, as individuals, impose upon it.

What Polyamory Isn't
Polyamory isn't "swinging." The difference between the two is quite simple. In swinging, the emphasis is on sax. And while sax is as important to polyamory as it is to monogamy, the true emphasis is the same as that of monogamy: love.

Polyamory is not "cheating." It is a relationship structure built with the knowledge and approval of all partners involved. No secret relationships exist in polyamory. Openness, honesty, communication, trust... All the things that are key to a monogamous relationship are vital to polyamory.

Polyamory is not out to replace monogamy. Just as monogamy doesn't "fit" certain individuals, neither does polyamory. The two practices are not mutually exclusive, nor opposed in any way. Like most things in life, it's a matter of personal choice.

There are several good websites where you can learn more about polyamory:
