Before entering into a poly relationship think long and hard about it. Between two people, there is one dynamic, and that is often more than a couple can handle. If you are in a relationship and bring just one more person into the "family" you have gone from one dynamic to four dynamics A-B, B-C, A-C and A-B-C. Bring another person in and it just multiplies geometrically A-B, A-C, A-D, B-C, B-D, C-D, A-B-C, A-B-D, A-C-D, B-C-D & A-B-C-D. Often it is hard enough for a couple to get along and each additional person in the relationship just exacerbates any problems in the relationship. Also, it is critical that the sub's/slave's all get along with one another so as to alleviate any potential jealousy. In fact, while trust and respect in BDSM between the Dom/sub or Dom/slave relationship in a poly relationship, it is My opinion that the relationship between the sub's/slave's is even more critical... so if you are an insecure Dom you would be better off NOT entering into a poly relationship. Actually, if you are an insecure Dom, you would be better off NOT getting involved with ANY sub/slave... let alone entering into a poly relationship.
