Not to be confused with polyamory, which is a term that relates to relationships between three or more people. A polysexual individual can be defined as someone who is male, female, within the spectrum or as non-binary. The main characteristic of polysexuality is that many within this group will experience sexual attraction and desires, which is considered much more fluid than individuals from other LGBTQIA+ groups. A polysexual individual will likely feel attraction to more than two genders or sexes but will not be attracted to all groups. For example, a polysexual male might be attracted to women, transgender and transexual women; however, might not be attracted to men or those considered more masculine
