Polyerosy, the much needed counterpart to Polyamory
Polyerosy (from Greek πολύ poly, “many, several”, and Greek ἔρωτες erotes, the plural of eros ἔρως “sexual desire”) means to be capable of being sexually attracted to more than one person at the same time and be in an consensual & sexual relationship with any of those people.
Polyamory combines plural sexual relationships & plural romantic relationships unneccessarily. Plural sexual & romantic relationships do coincide with each other but not always. Someone may be Monoamorous, but have plural sexual relationships, or vice versa. Someone may be Polyerosous, but is Nonamorous.
Poly//erosy could always be used to describe a sexual relationship inside a non-mono/polyamorous relationship between one party and another, like how poly//amory is used to describe romantic relationships.
The person would be a Polyerosist, Polye/Polyeros, Polyerosous like with Polyamory, the person would be a Polyamorist, Polyam, and Polyamorous.
There’s other terms like Open Relationships and Swinging, but it doesn’t carry the same weight, stability and language meaning as Polyamory.
If we adopt Polyerosy in the Non-Mono/Poly community we could still use Polyamory as an umbrella term for people who are still both Polyamorous and Polyerosous.
That’s why a term like Polyerosy is necessary, healthy, sensible to adopt into usage for those who need it in the Non-Mono/Polyam community.

Black: Solidarity & pride with those who hide those relationships from the outside world due to societal pressures.
Red: Sexual desire, sexuality, intensity and passion.
Blue: The openness, communication and honesty amongst all partners in poly relationships. Flexibility and freedom.
The Golden Epsilon symbol: Greek lowercase letter ‘Epsilon with a psili and oxia’, as the first letter of ‘Erotes’ or ‘Eros’. the Gold color represents the value that we place on the close connections we make with others.
The darker hues in the first flag: Pride, strength courage and fortitude of being non-mono/poly.
The purple hues in the second flag: tactfulness, diplomacy, consensuality and professionalism needed when being in a sexual relationship with someone, be it mono or non-mono.
I would really appreciate if you can help me champion Polyerosy to common usage in the Non-Mono/Poly Community. Let me know if you identify as Polyerosous in anyway and let me know if I need to clarify anything. Thanks for reading this post, it means a lot to me!
Hey so i saw your posts about john ambrose and you can talk more about him? I was so disappointed with how things turned out with him
oh boy oh boy
john ambrose mcclaren uses coasters and visits his grandmother and has little sisters
he once wrote down all of kitty’s ideas (patiently, carefully, never dismissing them because they were too childish or impractical – something that i realized made him very different from peter, who dismissed lara jean’s feelings several times in the books, perhaps without even meaning to)
i think johnny is so kind
he is kind and good and, i hope, someone who would stay in lara jean’s life for a long time if she let him
i think he is her soulmate
(and not all soulmates have to be romantic, too)
lara jean is the type of girl who remembers everything, who treasures everything and falls in love over and over again – she’s sentimental and romantic and i thought johnny would love her for that more than peter k ever could
can you honestly tell me peter listens to lara jean when she talks about stormy and the retirement home? (hint: he didn’t) that he would understand how important the small, day to day things are to her? like how she always wraps her sandwiches with wax paper instead of plastic wrap, how painstakingly she planned the perfect sleepover (long nightdresses, horror movies, hair in rollers kind of perfect) for her little sister, such simple, simple things that, otherwise insignificant to the plot, lara jean pours over in the novels
there’s something about johnny, the smallest details that jenny han uses, the shy johnny lara jean remembers who had a stutter and was always in kavinsky’s shadow, the john ambrose who grew up and does model un and tells a girl he was too afraid to ask to a dance when they were kids he likes her, that makes me think he’s the same way too
i liked you then, lara jean, and i like you even more now
i want to make it unequivocally clear
in my aesthetics board, i used a picture that said “i feel secure with you” and i think that best describes how i interpreted the happiness lara jean felt around him
he made her feel special – andshe was the only one for him
even though, genevieve was his friend and someone important to him, even though, she was struggling and her own issues, i never got over how clearly peter picked her, how he decided that he had to be there for her first (even if he didn’t love her, even if he “loved” lara jean), that breaking up with lara jean would be more easy to do than detach himself from his ex-girlfriend who has, time and time again, treated lara jean like she was nothing
yes, genevieve has problems at home but that isn’t an excuse ???
i think people need to recognize how awfully peter treated lara jean in psily
he was so vain and conceited i stopped seeing them as even a possibility together
he didn’t even want lara jean back until after he saw john ambrose and her together at the USO ball – so possessive and unnecessarily rude to his childhood best friend (they were sundance kid and butch cassidy; they were best friends ok) that i began to realize how petty he was
he fucking asked for the jewelry back he had no right
To @okapiaman : my favourite Islands are Alonissos (as you), Patmos, Kimolos and Astypalea
Patmos for its Chora and beaches (especially psili ammos)
Kimolos for everything, food, people, beaches, and the main city and Poliagos
Astypalea for the beauty of the land, i’ve never seen landscape as the ones of Astypalea, and it is not crowded so you can go to paradisiac beaches with no one in it
And I guess that I doesn’t have to explain why Alonissos is my favourite ;)
