Iowa Polyamory

Organization Type: Local organization
Group size: 150-200

Activities:

Polyamory is often defined as "loving or relating intimately to more than one person, with honesty and integrity." This club is meant to provide a place for poly people in Iowa to connect and communicate. We welcome any communication about polyamory and the issues that come up for those living a poly lifestyle.

Personal ads are welcome, as long as they are tasteful.

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.

"The more you love, the more you *can* love - and the more intensely you love. Nor is there any limit on how many you can love. If a person had time enough, he could love all of that majority who are decent and just." -- Robert A. Heinlein
