To some, they sound exciting – to others, they seem too eccentric. One thing is for sure: open relationships or marriages gained much popularity for the past few years and more and more people are thinking about them.

In fact, I think it’s safe for all of us to admit that we’re all pretty curious about how an open relationship actually does work!

First of all, let’s define it: an open relationship is when the two partners of a relationship agree to sexual intercourse with another one (or several) people who are not part of their relationship.

We were curious enough to take a look on the mighty internet and see what people involved in open relationships have to say about it, so here they are!


“We set up a lot of ground rules initially, things like: you can’t hang out with that person all the time and sleep with them more than three times etc. Things that would mean that you were now in a relationship with someone else (we wanted open play, not poly relationships).

“Now we just can’t be bothered seeing other people and the sex was never as good as with each other. We might bring in a person to jointly play with once or twice a year, but we’re kind of just ‘over’ seeing other people. Honestly, mostly the same as before we were open.”
