About the 2Plus Blog

This is a blog about non-monogamy and polyamory originally told from the perspective of two primary partners doing 2plus (the two of us plus our lovers). It is now told by Mimi.

We think it’s important to get this info out there because 1) we have many friends and acquaintances (and an occasional anonymous emailer) who have confided in us that they’ve “thought” about non-monogamy but haven’t figured out how to broach the subject with a partner, don’t know if it’s right for them, and/or don’t understand or are curious about how it works and 2) because there is not enough information out there about the everyday ins and outs (pun intended) of doing non-monogamy especially from the different perspectives of two primary partners.

If you’re at all interested in the world of non-monogamy as a participant, curious observer, or wannabe, we think you’ll find it titillating, intense, informative, possibly offensive, and hopefully enlightening.  Stay tuned!


  1. I am really interested in getting your advice on a relationship that is transitioning into open. This is new territory for me and not something I would be particularly interested in if my girlfriend of 7 months hadn't recently expressed to me how stifled and unhappy she has always felt in a monogamous relationship (similar to your itchy sweater description). I love her dearly and the thought of her unhappy or us breaking up is absolutely gut wrenching. Is there a message box or email account you have for this blog that I could explain our situation through? Your blog has helped me tremendously in processing this incredibly confusing situation. Thank you!

  2. Thanks, anonymous. I'm so glad you've found this blog useful. Your situation raises some interesting issues. I will write an entry about a similar situation in my life and hope that it's helpful. If you still have questions, we can go from there. Thanks again!

  3. Thank you so much, Mimi. Looking forward to reading that entry! While every relationship surely faces completely unique issues, I hope your words will help restore my quickly deteriorating feelings of optimism for our ability to make this situation work.
