polyoz-logoHave you ever been in love with more than one person at the same time or are you already in a polyamorous relationship? Do you live in regional Australia and feel isolated because of your lifestyle choices? Then you have arrived at the right place, this site is devoted to people such as yourselves, your friends, relatives or anyone who is curious to find out more about polyamory.

Polyamory has been defined as the philosophy and practice of loving more than one person at a time with honesty and integrity. The term "Polyamory" was coined in the late 80's by a pagan priestess, Morning Glory Zell, and defines a range of different lifestyle alternatives. In most cases but not all, this involves some sexual or at least intensely intimate sexual behavior.

Polyamorous people come from a wide variety of backgrounds, they may belong to an organized religion or they may not, some have children whereas others don't, some may be looking for a new relationship and some are content with their current relationship.

We are of all ages, ethnic identities, sexual orientations, occupations and political persuasions.

The one and only thing that polyamorous people have in common is this:-

We believe it is possible to have more than one romantic relationship at a time, ethically and constructively.

This is a place where everyone who shares that , or is interested in finding out more about it, can find information, stories, resources, mutual support and social networking - you may even find that someone(s) special on this site

This site makes no claims to represent anyone but itself, but is intended to be a "stepping stone" - you may follow the links to a support group that is near you - or if there isn't one in your region, we can assist you with publicity, advice and support in organizing your own group.

However, we do encourage visitors to sign up on the site and submit news, photos, details of upcoming events or anything of interest to poly folk and to enter into broader discussions of polyamory in general or just enjoy the social networking aspects of the site. We invite members to share their experiences so as we may further the education and awareness or our lifestyle with the general community and help in creating a unique interactive poly community on the web, and as a community site we want to reflect the views of you the users and not those of the site creators or articles gathered from other sources.
