    What do people find so appealing about a polygamous relationship? I don't understand the need to have multiple sexual partners, why isn't one enough?

    It's polyamorous not polygamous.

    Polygamy refers to having more than one wife - polyamory is having more than one relationship.

    People are polyamorous for al sorts of reasons. Some just don't want to commit to one person and it's more of a sexual free for all, some believe that love is infinite and that loving one person does not inhibit their ability to love another, others can be in closed polyamorous relationships (triads etc). It's complex and you won't get one definitive answer.

    I personally would never have this kind of relationship because simply, I'd get jealous! However, I have some close friends who are a couple and they have a polygamous relationship. They've been together for 2 years, and live together, but still both sometimes sleep with other people. They said they just enjoy being together but also like the freedom. I find it odd, but it works for them.

    I also have a lot of gay friends who always tell me that being in a monogamous gay relationship is very difficult, and all the gay guys I know sleep around, or have a lot of threesomes. When I ask why they tell me it's just the way it is. I also have gay male friends who really want a monogamous relationship, but haven't been able to find anyone who wants the same thing. I thought that was quite interesting!
