What is Polysexuality?

It’s Terminology Tuesday once again, and this week I will be discussing polysexuality.

“Poly-” as a prefix generally means “two or more.” In regards to sexuality, this means attraction to two or more genders. For example, someone who is polysexual may be attracted to males, nonbinary individuals, and agender individuals. However, this is only one example, and every person is different.

Polysexuality is not to be confused with polyamory, bisexuality, or pansexuality. Though they may have their similarities in some cases, each means something different, and each is valid.

If you want to add to the discussion or ask a question, feel free to leave a comment, Tweet at Beneath The Identity, or contact me directly.
