COSTA, Pedro Alexandre  e  RIBEIRO-GONCALVES, José Alberto. Consensual non-monogamy: attitudes and experiences of heterosexual, homosexual, and plurisexual individuals. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.1, pp.104-110. ISSN 1645-0086.  https://doi.org/10.15309/20psd210116.

In most Western cultures, the monogamous relational pattern is assumed as ideal in committed relationships, although this pattern is becoming less frequent today and particularly among sexual minorities. The aim of this study was to examine the beliefs and adherence to consensual non-monogamy. Method: A sample of 1,725 ​​adults (mean age = 35) was collected, including 1,159 exclusively heterosexual, 164 exclusively homosexual, and 402 plurisexual individuals who participated in an online study. Results: Heterosexual participants revealed attitudes and desire to engage in more restrictive sexual relations and less open attitudes to non-monogamous relations than homosexual and plurisexual participants. However, plurisexual participants revealed greater openness to non-monogamous relationships than homosexual participants. Regarding gender, women generally revealed attitudes and desire to engage in more restrictive sexual relations and less open attitudes to non-monogamous relationships than did men. Discussion: In this study, people with less normative sexual identities (bisexual, pansexual, queer) revealed greater desire and experience of non-monogamous committed relationships and less restrictive sexual attitudes, suggesting a double disruption of heteronormative and mononormative patterns that may impact health, and particularly sexual health of this group of people.
