    Anyone here lived in such a situation or know of people who do/did? Two men, one woman? How does that work without people stepping on each others toes (so to speak)?

    Or is that something that is only practised in Nepal and China :)

    Been away some time and only just come back today but one member here (male) did and still may be living with two gorgeous blonde women who are not only originally from the same country but also from elementary school friends.
    One is his wife the other (her friend) his FB and they lived harmoniously at least to my knowledge (but that could have changed as few months lapsed by now) as such relationships tend to be rather fluid yet can be long lasting aka Freud.

    That's polygamy. Question was the opposite: two men and one woman. I have only done it casual sex-wise for a few hours or overnight, and it worked in a sexual sense. Probably works better than one man / many women (women have more sexual capacity than any single man). In terms of a relationship I don't know.

    Polygamy is the generic term for having multiple spouses. Having a wife and a FB is not polygamy.

    A lot of us have wives and mistresses at the same time and that's not polygamy. I have been in situations with one woman and two men for up to a weekend. Mostly it was about sex, but it was about more than that given we spent a few days together. In a sexual sense, be it both at the same time or taking turns, a woman can easily manage two men.

    Err....yes? Not sure where you were going with that one, I was just pointing out that a man with a wife and sex toy on the side isn't polygamy is all.

    Getting completely technical, a man with 2 or more wives is polygyny, a woman with 2 or more husbands is polyandry, and polygamy is just the generic term for having multiple spouses.

    Someone who has a single spouse and someone (or someones) on the side has many names depending on the locale.

    I am polyandry.

    I have a husband and until recently had a long term bf.

    We lived near eachother and I would spend 4 night with hubs and 3 nights with bf.

    We joked I was time shared between the 2 households.

    Unfortunately bf had to move to other side of state. We tried the long distance, but it just didn't work out.

    Ideally for me having both live in same house would of been best, just wasn't possible.

    (Sorry to zombify an old thread)
