Polysexuality refers to people who are sexually attracted to more than one gender or sex but do not wish to identify as bisexual as it infers that there are only two genders. Polysexuals often include the idea of a third gender, often regarding transgender as the seperate third gender and subsequently being sexually attracted to people in that category.
I classify myself as a follower of polysexuality because I'm sexually attracted to people that fall both in and out of being catagorised simply as male or female

The attraction to more than one gender, with no limit on the gender spectrum. Contrary to popular belief, this has nothing to do with polygamy (marriage of multiple people.)
James is not only attracted to girls, but also those who aregenderneutral, and agender, he is polysexual.

The attraction to multiple genders. Bisexuality and pansexuality are forms of polysexuality. Polysexuality generally rejects the idea of a gender binary, the idea that there are only two genders (male and female), rather than a spectrum of genders.
Contrary to popular belief, transgender people do not necessarily fall outside of the gender binary, as they often still identify as just male or female.
Polysexuals do not necessarily engage in or support polyamory, or having multiple romantic partners.
I am attracted to women and people who identify as feminine, so I identify myself as polysexual.

I may be polysexual, but I'm still monogamous.

Polysexuality is attraction to some, but not all, possible genders. This is not to be confused with bisexuality, which is attraction to the two binary genders, or pansexuality, which is attraction regardless of gender.

Someone who is polysexual may be attracted to any combination of possible genders, including both binary and non-binary.
Someone who is polysexual is not necessarily polyamorous.
Alice: I just started dating this new person. They are agender.
Jane: But I thought you were straight! You were dating that guy before!
Alice: Nope, I'm attracted to men and agender people. I'm polysexual.
Jane: Oh, that makes sense.

Polysexual: A person of any gender that is attracted to multiple genders, but not all.

Other definition for other meaning: A person who is attracted to three or four genders but not all.

This is an umbrella term for multiple sexualities is where the same attraction for just liking more than one gender like for example related: Pansexuality, Bisexuality, and Trisexuality.

(This sexuality has actually been known since 1920s in pansexualism, but hasn't been really that noticed that much but people identify as it for like multiple but not all.)

This is Not to confuse with the relationship called polyamorous (polyamory) simply the are the same because the noun for the word "poly" is supposed to mean multiple but in this case it's just supposed to be like the same but polyamorous has do was more a relationship depending on the person for sexuality.

As I have written a previous definition about Pansexual and how it differs from polysexuality and bisexuality, I am now writing a definition for polysexual. This sexuality is often overlooked and misunderstood, grouped either in pansexual or bisexual. They are NOT the same thing, to be clear.
Polysexuality is the attraction to multiple genders in the gender spectrum, but not all. They are attracted to more than two, but not the complete spectrum. I want to make this point clear. They could be attracted to as little as three, or as many as the majority, but never all. I would like to make a point that it varies from poly to poly. I would also like to make a point that they aren't attracted to every person they see in these genders they choose. Another misconception that is tiring.
"Oh, so she's bisexual?"
"No, she likes more than two genders."
"How about pansexual, then?"
"No, she isn't attracted to all. She's polysexual."
