Erika Reaper (left), Russell Williams (center), and Roan Williams (right) discuss the previous days activities in San Jose, Calif. on Saturday, February 12, 2005. Russell and Roan are a married polyamorous couple and Reaper and Russell have been involved in a committed relationship for almost a year now, with their spouses consent. Polyamory is a term meaning ?many loves,? which means that they participate in romantic relationships with other people. What began as a sexual exploration with new partners turned to something more significant when Erika fell in love with Russell Williams last year, and she is now in a committed relationship with both her husband and Williams.
