The CSIRO did, however, publish research in 2014 that indicated one per cent of over 5000 respondents were in an open relationship.
CNM is an umbrella term that covers several relationship models, such as open relationships, recreational sex with more than two people, and swinging (swapping sexual partners within a group), but one that has had a lot of airtime recent is polyamory.
The definition of polyamory (from the Latin “love”) is a non-monogamous sexual and long-term emotional relationship where all partners consent to and have knowledge of each another.
“Communication around emotional and sexual needs have to be present as well as conversations informing partners about things like boundaries and restrictions,” Ms van Diest said.
“Polyamory is still often seen as different to the ‘norm’ so managing social responses can also be very challenging.” Ms van Diest said more people are choosing CNM because, as social norms change, people realise conventional relationships have not worked for them.
