Definition - What does Polytrothism mean?

Polytrothism refers to egalitarian relationships involving more than two people. It is differentiated from other practices of polygamy because that is shared equally among all persons within the relationship. It is not matriarchal or patriarchal practices that rest authority on the central female or central male. It is like a love commune where each person has a say on issues that affect the relationship.

Kinkly explains Polytrothism

Polytrothism seems like an ideal set-up for men and women who find monogamy restrictive. However, it is important to remember that it may still be subject to some drama. After all, it involves human emotions which can turn volatile when challenged or put under stress. Tread with care, and lay each person's cards on the table. For polytrothism to work, transparency and trust are necessary.
