Polyamory and ENM (ethical non-monogamy) can enhance BDSM and kink dynamics, as well as complicate them. These topics specifically address consensual non-monogamy including polyamory and ENM in the context of BDSM dynamics and relationships.
In monogamous dynamics, much of the weight and reassurance of power and authority is placed on exclusivity of reassurance and play. However, when non-monogamy is factored in, that reassurance must be established and communicated in different ways.
Issues can include balancing time and resources between multiple dynamics. And, validating new and existing dynamics without subjecting anyone to couple’s privilege. Additionally, can also include honoring protocols and dynamics outside of your own that exist within a polycule.
