Dear Chuck, what is the difference between Polysexual and Polyamorous

Here are some “official” definitions to help us get started.

A polysexual person is someone who is sexually and/or romantically attracted to multiple genders. It is not the same as being bisexual or pansexual, although all of these sexualities involve being attracted to more than one gender. It also is not the same as being polyamorous. A person who is polyamorous is someone who is both open to or prefers to have multiple emotional or sexual relationships at one time, though polyamory historically has not been considered a sexual orientation.

Other thoughts from our youth: 

“Polysexual is multiple sexual attractions lumped into one word”

“It is important to remember not to use the poly as a nickname because poly is also a shorthand name for polynesian”

The term polyamrous negative connotation because of poligmy.

“Some people’s “cup” is filled by one person and some peoples cup needs to be filled by many people. One partner might fill their emotional “cup” but another might fill their adventurous “cup”
