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.

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.

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."

attraction that does not include inscribed gender (gay, lesbian, bisexual); similar to pansexual; and/or polygamy or non-monogamy
I'm dating a few people right now besides him. My gender isn't static, so I don't talk about my sexual orientation as bisexual, especially since I'm not monogamous either. So that's why I say I'm polysexual.
