FAQ

Do I have to be Black to use this site?

Black & Poly Dating is open to all races and ethnicities. As part of our mission, we center the voices of people of the African Diaspora in educating the community about polyamory.

I’m interested in swinging or lifestyle events.

Black & Poly supports ethical non-monogamy in its many forms, but we are not primarily designed to help people find opportunities for swinging.

Can I find a sister wife here?

The “poly” in Black & Poly stands for polyamory. While we recognize that many black cultures have participated in polygamy and especially polygyny, this website is not designed to help people looking for group marriages.

Can I block/report a member?

You can block a member, which means you won’t be able to receive their private messages, view their activity, view their comments or see their profile. And of course, vice versa.

When you report a member, only the admin is notified. We will review their profile and take appropriate action.
