A woman has revealed how she navigates her a polyamorous relationship with a couple, by agreeing on their sex schedule and date nights in advance.
Melanie Moseley, from Portland, Oregon, started dating couple Cliff Rees, 69, and Charity Joy, 45, back in January 2019, after first meeting them both individually.
The performance instructor, 56, who said she used to be a ‘serial cheater’, has an agreement with the couple which outlines their date nights and sex schedules.
The schedule sets out specific days when Melanie can have ‘alone time’ with either Cliff or Charity, as well as days that they can spend time together as a throuple.

Melanie said that although she didn’t expect a relationship to work with three people involved, she has found a ‘deep connection’ with Cliff and Charity.
Their polyamorous relationship is not exclusive, and Melanie explained that she also has the ‘freedom to date other people’ as well as the couple.
She continued: ‘In the past I was a serial cheater, but now I’ve found a deep connection.
‘I didn’t expect a relationship to work with two people.
‘But we’re great communicators and we make sure that we schedule quality time with each other.
‘I also have the freedom to date other people. Our relationship is really special.’

Melanie first met Cliff, a retired telecommunication executive, back in March 2018 while they were both at a salsa dancing class.
Melanie, who is twice-divorced, said that ‘sparks flew’ between them, but she didn’t see him again so she continued online dating and became a ‘swinger’ because it made her feel ‘less trapped’.
She explained: ‘We danced together and sparks flew. But after that, I didn’t see him again, so I carried on online dating.
‘I am twice-divorced, so, in time, I became a swinger because it made me feel less trapped.
‘But I still longed for a genuine connection with a man or woman.’
And just seven months later, Melanie got chatting to Charity, who works as a psychologist, when they both performed at a dance show together.
Melanie said although she didn’t expect a relationship to work with three people involved, she she has found a ‘deep connection’ with Cliff and Charity (L-R: Melanie pictured with Charity)
Melanie described Charity as ‘extremely sex-positive’ and said that she ‘fancied her’, but unfortunately didn’t get her number.
But surprisingly, Melanie bumped into both Charity and Cliff in January 2019, who were on a date at a bar and had been seeing each other for around a month.
Melanie said: ‘I recognised them both immediately. They explained they were on a date and had been seeing each other for a month.
‘I joined them and we all gelled so easily. Out of the blue, they invited me on a date. I was so excited.’
One week later, she joined Charity and Cliff at their house and they had a threesome, before the couple said they were polyamorous and looking for a long-term partner.
Melanie explained that she was excited to try a ‘new way of dating’ with the couple, and the trio quickly fell in love.

She continued: ‘I was excited to try a new way of dating. I loved how kind Cliff was and Charity’s playful side. Soon, we fell in love.’
In March 2019, Melanie moved into Cliff and Charity’s home but still wanted her freedom, so they became an open polyamorous triad.
Melanie explained that the couple already had a list of rules for their relationship, something that appealed to her because she liked the idea of having ‘clear expectations’.
Their verbal agreement gives Melanie her own bedroom and she has a sex schedule with the couple – giving her ‘alone time’ with Charity on Fridays and with Cliff on ‘set weekdays’.
The trio also allocate one day a week where they go out for romantic dates as a trio, and they are ‘allowed’ to sleep with other people as long as they ‘practice safe sex’.
Melanie explained: ‘We became an open polyamorous triad. But I still wanted my freedom.
Melanie explained how her parents reacted to the throuple (pictured: Charity, Cliff and Melanie), saying her mother, who is in her 70s, told her she didn’t want to her about her sex life

‘Cliff and Charity explained they already had a written list of rules for their relationship.
‘I loved the idea of having clear expectations, so I suggested we had a verbal agreement concerning all three of us. So, we decided I’d have my own bedroom downstairs.
‘We all agreed we could still sleep with other people, as long as we practiced safe sex. We also allocated date nights.
‘From then on, I had sex with Cliff whenever we felt like it on set weekdays, while Charity and I had alone time on Fridays.
‘On Sundays, we go out for romantic dinners as a trio and have threesomes together in Charity and Cliff’s bedroom.’
Melanie explained how her parents reacted to the news that she was in a throuple, saying her mother, who is in her 70s, told her she didn’t want to her about her sex life.
Melanie said her parents have since given their blessing and spent Christmas with the trio (pictured), who moved in together in March 2019, though Melanie has her own bedroom
She said she explained to her mother that the relationship was not just about sex, while her father was ‘confused’ and asked her lots of questions about polyamory.
But as time passed, Melanie said her parents gave her their blessing and even spent Christmas with the trio.
She continued: ‘When I told her I’d moved in with a couple, she told me she didn’t want to hear about my sex life.
‘I was disappointed and explained it wasn’t just about sex. My dad was also confused and asked lots of questions about polyamory.
‘With time, they gave their blessing and my parents celebrated Christmas with Charity and Cliff.
‘My friends were also quick to accept our relationship, because many of them enjoyed open relationships.’
Melanie admitted she sometimes feels ‘frustrated’ at comments from strangers about their polyamorous throuple (all pictured), but said that she ‘couldn’t be happier’
Melanie, who has been with Charity and Cliff for nearly two years, told of when they went on holiday to Las Vegas and strangers ‘demanded’ to know if they were all in a relationship.
She admitted that she did feel ‘frustrated’ at the comments, which also saw people ask her and Charity if they were ‘hookers’, but said that she ‘couldn’t be happier’ in her polyamorous throuple.
Melanie said: ‘When we walked into a bar, people asked if Charity and I were hookers.
‘Every time we went out as a three, strangers demanded to know if we were all in a relationship.
‘I explained we were in a ‘throuple’, but it only made them more confused.
‘They wanted to know how it worked. I felt frustrated but we tried not to let the comments bother us.
‘Now, we’ve been together for nearly two years. Although we sleep with other people, we mean the world to each other. I couldn’t be happier.’
