Open relationships or polyamory are still very new for our society. A system in which you are already in a relationship with a person but sexually involved with many others. I know it does not seem practical, but there are many such couples who happily enter into an open relationship. However, these open relationship confessions will present a different picture. People who already tried or are in an open relationship with their partners confessed about the reality.
If you are thinking of entering into an open relationship then you must read these confessions by the people who have experienced it. Polyamory seems very exciting as it gives a lot of freedom and you think of making your boring life an interesting one. However, every exciting thing has its own consequences. Here are the confessions that might help you to understand the concept better.
1. Boyfriend and Girlfriend open to having sex with the same girl/boy
Open relationships are most of the time an easy way to experiment more with sexuality. Many people already in an open relationship believe that they get a chance to get sexually involved with the same guy/girl as their partners.
2. I want kids with my new partner and old boyfriend.
Many women feel like having kids with the partner she is in a relationship and the one she has started a new relationship. An open relationship with a partner might end up in multiple relationships. It makes the women desire for kids with many partners.
3. We started it for fun but now he loves the other girl.
This is one of the common issues with an open relationship. When two partners decide to explore more options while they are together, there is no guarantee that they will stick to the relationship. They many times find someone else and get attracted to them more.
4. We are swingers and we love it.
Some people are very sorted and they openly believe in swapping wives and husbands and are complete swingers. In such cases, relationships are talked about and until and unless insecurity peeks in, everything works normally.
5. We started an open relationship but now there is guilt.
There are some men/women who do initiate the idea of open relationships but they don’t actually do anything. But their partners explore the other options but then they get guilty of their acts.
6. The open relationship has spiced up the relationship.
This is one of the most common advantages for the couples in open relationships. They feel that their sex lives get spiced up with the idea of different men/women in their partner’s life.
7. Open relationship because it will save the cheating.
It is one of the assumptions that people who are already getting a free option of having multiple sexual partners will not cheat on their girlfriends/boyfriends. People feel relieved that they know everything about their partner whom are they sleeping with.
8. An open relationship with the partner so that before marriage they get to experience everything.
Many couples feel that before they marry each other, it is important that they get all the sex out of their system. They find it interesting to experiment with everything before they finally get into the relation of marriage.
All of these confessions stand valid. There are pros and cons to every relationship but the only ground of an open relationship is being open to your partners. What if the partners start hiding things? What do you think about this kind of a settlement?
