poly & peanutbutter

In our hetreonormative society a relationship between two people is the norm, even though there are many more possibilities. Polyamory means having sexual or romantic relationships with two or more people at the same time. But what does that mean?

With this question I followed different people with alternative relationships and learned about all the different romantic flavours. I learned a lot about how love is infinite and the experiences that come with it. On the other side, when I talked to people with a monogame lifestyle I saw that there is a lot of misunderstanding of what polyamory means.

A lot of people in the poly-community feel this misunderstanding which often results in frustration and disconnection. That is why I created clips that show different topics within polyamory in a playful and open way. Using these clips as a conversation starter started to bring Polyamory out into the open, by showing the clips at events and starting a dialogue with the public.

I build a Poly&Peanutbutter stand where I served different kinds of peanut butter jelly sandwiches while showing the clips with questions about sexuality, relationships and polyamory on the side. This resulted in some beautiful debates and stories around this topic.
