Although the words are often treated as synonymous, 'polyamory' is not the same as 'open relationships'; a person may have more than one close emotional or sexual partner and yet not be "open" to others (polyfidelity), or may have an agreement to allow multiple partners but not form the long term emotional bonds with them which are defining within polyamory (eg swinging).
The core value of polyamory ultimately might be said to be that the multiple relationships are intended to be taken seriously as relationships, rather than "ships passing in the night".
These may share the terminology that has evolved with modern nonmonogamous practices.
Areas of difference arise regarding the degree of commitment, such as in the practice of casual sexual activities, and whether it represents a viewpoint or a relational status quo (whether a person without current partners can be considered "polyamorous").Thus, a person may refer to a live-in partner as their primary partner, and a lover whom they only see once a week as their secondary partner, in order to differentiate to the listener who is whom.While such labels can be used as a tool to manage multiple relationships to as an intimate network, includes relationships that are of varying significance to the people involved, but are not explicitly labeled as "primary" or "secondary".Image: Image: Poliamory pride in San Francisco 2004Like 'television', polyamory is a neologism and a hybrid word: 'poly' is Greek for 'many' and 'amor' is Latin for 'love'.It has been independently coined by several people, including Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart whose article 'A Bouquet of Lovers' (1990) encouraged the popularization of the term, and Jennifer Wesp who created the Usenet newsgroup alt.polyamory in 1992.
