The Polyamory Today Mission
Here at Polyamory Today, it’s our mission to provide straightforward information about polyamory. We’re here to open up a dialogue about what it is to be polyamorous or in other types of non-monogamous relationships. We want to normalize non-monogamy and help our readers attain and manage poly relationships with honesty and integrity.
We also hope to entertain and provide our audience with an abundance of tips, ideas, and inspiration with how-to articles and stories from the field.
But we don’t stop at polyamory, nor do we discriminate..
As a complete resource for ethical non-monogamy, Polyamory Today celebrates and supports ALL types of ethically non-monogamous lifestyles and experiences including open relationships, swinging, hotwifing, consensual cuckolding, and group sex.
If it’s non-monogamy practiced ethically, with openness and honesty, we want to be there to support the community no matter how fringe or kinky.
Who Is Behind Polyamory Today?
Polyamory Today was created by Lola Page in 2012 when she saw there was a lack of information and true understanding of polyamory online. She took it upon herself to start a simple blog that could both educate newcomers and provide advice for those experiencing the challenges of polyamorous relationships and dating. Over the last 11 years that polyamory blog evolved into what is now a 1000+ article resource for people interested in all forms of ethical non-monogamy.
As Lola took on more online projects it became necessary to hire additional writers. Polyamory Today has gone through some growing pains over the years, but today we are so proud of our current team of writers who have now been contributing to Polyamory Today for many years. And yes, the very large majority of our articles have been written by practicing polyamorous authors.
Addi brings a wealth of knowledge to Polyamory Today, with over 25 years of experience with polyamorous love and relationships. He shares his insights gained as a member of the polyamory community, whether it’s the day-to-day challenges of healthy poly relationships, or his more daring escapades in the sex club scene. Addi brings fierce honesty wrapped in love and compassion, and his positivity is refreshing and contagious.
Jamie is a prolific writer who contributes regularly to Polyamory Today, as well as Kink Lovers Magazine and other sex-positive publications. She shares her vast knowledge of non-monogamy, kink, sex, and dating, gained through real experience and a deep interest in these topics.
With over 1000 professionally published articles to her name, Jamie has certainly honed her craft. Away from the keyboard she is passionate about living a life of adventure and exploration, which fuels her creativity and brings ever more ideas to share with her readers here at Polyamory Today.
Holly is our managing editor here at Polyamory Today. She ensures that everything we publish is high quality and beautifully organized. She is our communication expert and keeps us all working as a team and on schedule, while also contributing her own articles from time to time.
As a professional editor and writer, our non-monogamy resource site isn’t the only project keeping her busy. Holly also works as editor at multiple online magazines, has editing credits for several books, and is a published author of short fiction herself.
More About the Founder
When she started this site, Lola had already been writing about alternative lifestyles and niche online dating for a decade. She then decided to apply her passion for dating and relationship advice to the polyamorous community and those who wanted to learn more or get involved.
Since 2003, Lola Page has been dedicated to creating communities and content specifically for those interested in ethical non-monogamy and kink. Her first website was a forum for alternative relationships with a directory of dating sites for people with niche desires.
So began an enduring career in helping people connect with like-minded partners online, regardless of how outside the mainstream their interests may be. Lola went on to participate in many dating industry conventions and events, which allowed her to learn about the world of online dating from the inside. Many years were spent researching and testing online communities for alternative lifestyles.
Today, in addition to Polyamory Today, Lola maintains multiple lifestyle publications including Kink Lovers Magazine.
Managing Polyamory Today and her other online projects is a full-time job. When she’s not writing up new articles and resources, Lola spends her time joining and reviewing niche dating sites, engaging with our readers here and on social media, and coming up with new ways to help people meet and enjoy their kinks.
We love to receive your feedback here at Polyamory Today. At the end of each article, we ask our readers to join the discussion by adding their stories, opinions, or questions.
Sometimes our readers challenge our perspectives, making our site a better resource for everyone. And sometimes, we get a little love..
