In the last few years, the term, 'polyamory' has begun to appear more and more in the media. But what does it mean?
To put it super simply, polyamory is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as, 'the practice of engaging in multiple sexual relationships with the consent of all the people involved'.
Whilst this is true, polyamory is also so much more than that.
So, with this in mind, we've collected some of the most common questions about polyamory to show you what it's all about.

As 2017 approaches, we all begin to think about what new things we'd like to try in the new year, and what aspects of our lives we'd like to change for the better.
Whether it's joining the university gym or trying to get to your 9 a.m. lectures each week, many New Year's resolutions are well-intentioned, but tricky to keep going.
After all, student life is supposed to be full of fun and excitement, not swapping Jägerbombs for early nights; so, why not make a list of much more fun things to enjoy in the New Year instead?
By mixing things up in the bedroom, you get to explore new experiences, reinvigorate your sex life, and make some sexy resolutions that you're actually likely to keep.
Here, I've written a list of seven things every student should try in the New Year which are bound to give you a sense of satisfaction no gym membership ever could.
Regardless of what anyone tells you, taking nude photos is an art form.
Though many of us may just believe it's a matter of 'point-and-snap', there's actually a lot more to it if you want your photo to do your body justice.
Just as with any good photo, you have to think about framing, lighting, position, and many other things if you really want to get that jaw-dropping effect.
While most of us are aware that a lot of work goes into a fantastic sensual photo, it should nonetheless look like it's effortless.
So here are a few tips to help ensure your pictures are of top quality, every single time.
When we talk about sex, the first thing that comes to mind for most people is 'penis-in-vagina' or some variation of this.
Yet, while that's not incorrect, there are so many other ways to give and receive pleasure than through penetration or being penetrated, which are just as legitimate (and pleasurable) as any other type of sex.
In my years at uni, I've had many a chat about sex on everything from Freshers' Week hook-ups, to the theory of sex and why we as a society are obsessed with it (in other words what happens when Sociology students drink with Psychology students).
Penetrative sex always seems to come up in these conversations, and while I enjoy it myself, I know plenty of folks who often opt to have different types of sex instead.
So here are my top picks for non-penetrative types of sex – or, "Outercourse". Some of these suggestions could end up being a new favourite and a bedroom staple, or you might never try them again - but hey, at least you gave it a go!
So, we’re well and truly into the university year, and soon those of us with partners in our home town be able to go home to them for Christmas (YAY!).
And, well, we all know what that means. Nudge nudge.
For those of us who seldom see our lovers, it's important that we make the most of the time we spend together, which is why we've come up with this list of 12 sexy little gifts that you can share with your partner over the Christmas break.
Including games, sex toys, bondage accessories, and more, these fun-but-thrilling stocking fillers will definitely go down better than a partridge in a pear tree.
Just be careful not to open any in front of any family members.
The year is 2016. Scientists have proved that water exists on Mars. But can they definitively tell us what female ejaculation is and where it comes from?
You bet they can’t.
Female ejaculation, also known as ‘squirting’ or ‘gushing’, has been branded “one of the most hotly debated questions in modern sexology”, and for a very good reason. The scientific community can give us no definitive answer as to what female ejaculation actually is!
(I wish I had the time and resources to solve this mystery for women everywhere. It would only be a matter of buying some durable wellies, and getting my hands on enough absorbent kitchen towel.)
But until I do, I've found 5 facts you probably never knew about squirting.
We all start out as virgins, which is honestly kind of great.
The first times experiencing each potential avenue of sexual pleasure might be clumsy, intimidating and far from how we imagine them going, but they can still be some of the best and most memorable sexual encounters we have.
University life and the culture surrounding it makes for an atmosphere of sex like no other - it's everywhere, and often on many minds.
For some students, though, penetrative sex just isn't what they're after from the uni experience and many make it through the full three years (or more) without once dipping a toe in the pool of student sex.
Whether it's for religious reasons, asexuality, just wanting to wait until you're absolutely certain you've found the right person or anything else - here are our top things you must know for life as a student virgin!
Ah, Christmas. With only 26 days to go until the big event, many of us are frantically shopping, wrapping, and stuffing the cupboards with as many cheese footballs as they can hold.
But, as we all know, Christmas is a time for quality entertainment, too - and what could be more entertaining than spotting accidental innuendos over the dinner table?
From 'Santa came!' to 'Do you want stuffing?', we've identified 18 tongue-in-cheek double-entendres that commonly pop up on December 25th, and added them to these two print-and-play bingo cards.
Cross through each card as soon as you hear the phrase, and when you get a full line, be sure to take a picture and share it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #ChristmasBingOh!
Who knows - you could win the prize of a lifetime. Or maybe some sex toys.
For almost every student, pre-drinks are equally as important as the actual night-out.
Drinking games are a quick, fun, and guaranteed way to get you all in the mood for the night ahead, and most of us have found ourselves reaching for that old favourite, 'I Have Never'.
For those who haven't played, the rules are simple: each person takes it in turn to state something that they've never done, such as, 'I have never had sex in my parents' bed'. Any players who have done it must then take a drink.
However, there comes a point when we begin to run out of ideas, and the suggestions get a little obscure (hello, 'I have never eaten sushi off Drake's stomach'.)
So here are nine easy sex-related statements to inspire you that'll have everyone reaching for their glasses.
