So it seems to me that the goal of most people here (and us, when we first came here) was to find out how to make monogamous relationships easier and more enjoyable, by reversing the cultural and physiological programming so many of us adopted.
But lately, my husband and I have been feeling like... it isn't a BAD thing to want to touch, cuddle, kiss, and love other people. I mean, what's the harm in more love, more bonding between individuals? We don't want to have sex with everyone around us. We don't objectify others or fantasize about them. We just want to go on dates and watch movies with those around us who we find we share that .... special chemistry.
Does anyone have experience with or information on "polyamory" without the mindset of "it's natural for people to want to fuck lots of other people"? We feel an instinct to bond with and be physically close to others, now that we feel what a really bonded human physical relationship feels like. It's something we want to explore intellectually only, for now. We seem to change our mind about things quite often :)
