I believe Saah says it better than I ever could. From Gen X-Z, we can identify with “In Nola, I was looking for a 2017 version of Claire Huxtable.

“It’s way deeper than sex. That’s what polyamory has really taught me, that a relationship is not even about the sex,” says Stevens. “Sex is just like dessert, but the relationship is about the empire, the projects, the work, the mission, the drive.

That’s the case in Fairfield, where after a swingers club lost a bid in 2015 to open in West Chester Twp. — and a subsequent lawsuit that cost West Chester Twp. more than $150,000 — the city evaluated its own sexual oriented business laws, which resulted in banning businesses that offer live sex acts and sexual encounter businesses.

MCC elder talks Cajun roots, faith and lesbian polyamorous relationship

Windy City Times

"Back in the early 2000s when I was coming out as a lesbian, I did not know anyone that would be considered polyamorous.

I personally believe it is the most authentic and loving way for me to be in relationship, while aware that it is not possible or even advisable for others."
