Sheff describes the most common polyaffective relationship dynamic as “a woman with two male partners who are emotionally close but not lovers.” It’s hard to imagine two dudes who share the same woman being friendly to each other but I guess it’s possible.
If you’re Type A and everything irritates you, sleeping with a heavy flesh bag (aka your partner) draped around you like a human seat belt is low-grade torture.
Typically, the person who identifies as the more dominant partner in the relationship is the big spoon and the more submissive person is the little spoon. Any two people regardless of gender, orientation, or even height can assume either position.
The Polyamory Society website defines the primary relationship as “the closest relationship type, the person(s) given the most time, energy and priority in a person's life.” It’s basically a person’s main squeeze. Sometimes it is two heterosexual couples that switch off spouses without any same-sex sexual interaction, sometimes it’s a group of several people where every member is intimate with each other, and sometimes it’s a pair of people with one secondary partner they share.
After that is the secondary partner, which as the title suggests, means they get less time, attention, and commitment than the primary partner. You might be wondering: What’s the difference between an open relationship and a poly relationship? The main diff, according to the Poly Coach website, is that in an open relationship, there is always a primary partnership. In a poly relationship between three people (known as a triad) everyone could love each other equally, with no favorites.
