[LISTEN] Polyamory 101: 'It's more about emotional intimacy'

In the next few weeks, Dr Eve will be discussing the concept of polyamory and sharing ideas.

Clinical sexologist Dr Eve recently attended and gave presentation at the Non Monogamous and Contemporary Intimacies (NMCI) conference in Barcelona with a focus on polyamory.

She sat down with Esuebius McKaiser to share more on how the conversation around polyamory has developed over the years.

Dr Eve will delve into the subject over the next few weeks, beginning with the basics.

Explaining the difference between polygamy and polyamory, she says all parties have a consensual relationship and everyone has some form of relationship with each other.

The simple definition of it is you are loving more than one person than your primary partner who you started out your relationship with. It's more about emotional intimacy that people have.

Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist

She says polyamory takes different ways of manifesting themselves with each couple deciding for themselves what works in the relationship.

It is not about the sexuality of it, it is not about having multiple sexual partners...it's just this beautiful community of people who really want to fill themselves up with giving, loving, receiving different things from people, it is almost Utopian in a way - recognising that one person can't give it all to us.

Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist

Polyamory is coming more into the forefront as a chosen form of relationship because of the emotional intimacy that many people are seeking. There is nothing hidden, everything is consensual. It is an agreement between people that we bring in other people, it means that you know about their existence.
