Polysexuality, also spelled plysexual or polisexual is the exact same fucking thing as Bisexual. It's also a great example of Bi-erasure.
'''Polysexuality''', also spelled''' plysexual''' or '''polisexual''' is the sexual attraction to many, but not all, genders. For example, a polysexual person could be attracted to all genders except men, or be attracted to exclusively non-binary people, genderfluid people and man-aligned people. Polysexuality implies that one is attracted to more than 2 genders. This can be any number of genders, up to all genders besides one.
 
   
 
The romantic equivalent to Bisexual is Biromantic.
Polysexuality should not be confused with [[Polyamorous |polyamory]], the capacity to be in a relationship with multiple people at once, nor should it be confused with being [[bisexual]] or [[pansexual]]. The difference between being polysexual and being pansexual is that pansexuals experience attraction to all genders, while polysexuals are attracted to certain genders, but not all. The difference between being polysexual and being bi is that bisexuals are attracted to, at minimum, two genders, usually men and women, while polysexuals are attracted to many genders.

The flag was created by user Samlin on Tumblr<ref>https://www.unco.edu/gender-sexuality-resource-center/resources/pride-flags.aspx</ref> in 2012. They posted a design to the blog @fuckyeahpolysexuality with the caption, "I, as a poly individual, was greatly saddened that we don't have a flag...so I made one :P I made it similar to the bi and pan flags, since they're all in under the multisexual umbrella -Samlin".
 
 
The flag has since been recognizable in the LGBT+ community as a symbol of polysexuality.
