Multiamory Minute 06: One Gender Poly

Jase from attempts to explain topics and answer questions about polyamory in just 60 seconds.

Today's topic: One-Gender Poly (aka One Penis Policy/One Vagina Policy)

One-Gender Poly is a term to describe a polyamorous relationshp where the members of a couple are only allowed to date one gender and not the other. (Typically this is a Male-Female couple who are both allowed to date other women but not other men, though it does happen the other way around, too). Be very wary of entering into this kind of relationship or dating someone who is because the underlying reasons may be hiding some serious insecurities or sexist assumptions by one or both partners.
