Hi and welcome! This is the home page of the Poly Boston community and the announce@polyboston.org mailing list.

Polyamory is having or being able to have consensual, honest, respectful relationships with more than one person at a time, or being able to romantically love more than one person at once. Some poly people feel that for them, love is not a finite resource that must be saved for one person lest it be exhausted, but a renewable resource — the more love we give, the more we have to give.

Poly Boston is a group for polyamorous (poly), poly-curious, or poly-friendly people in the greater Boston area. The group organizes events via the announce@polyboston.org mailing list. Events include discussion groups, support groups, potlucks, parties, and other social events.

While these events provide an opportunity to meet a diverse collection of interesting, friendly people, this is not a dating service or a cruising area. If you come looking for that, you won’t have any fun, and we won’t either. But if you come looking for interesting discussion, new ideas, and a sense of community, you will probably find it, and if you treat the people you meet with respect and integrity, we will probably enjoy your company.

Information about polyamory in general

  • http://www.polyamory.org/ is the home page of the alt.polyamory newsgroup, and probably the best single web site about polyamory.
  • The alt.polyamory FAQ is a good general introduction to polyamory.
  • The Culture Supplement to the FAQ lists poly-related books (fiction and non-fiction), movies, songs, and comic books. The non-fiction book section is a good place to look for more information (much of it contradictory! :-) about what polyamory is.


  • Opening Up is Tristan Taormino’s blog associated with her book of the same name.
