Oilyamory

 
For fun and usefulness, here’s a new word for all those polyamorists who were missing a word to describe their committed affection to and admiration for oiled people.

Tah dahhhh!   :)
 
 

  • oil•y•am•or•y | ˌoɪlɪ ˈæmɔrɪ |
    noun (pl. -ies)
     
    1.   A subset of polyamory, describing the desire, willingness or practice of cultivating concurrent affectionate and emotionally intimate relationships with more than one informed and consenting oiled person at a time

    2.   A subset of polyamory, describing the desire, willingness or practice of cultivating multiple concurrent affectionate and emotionally intimate relationships with informed and consenting people who may be oiled with more than one variety of oil at a time
     
     
    Etymology

    Polyamory is wrong - t-shirt From a thread on FetLife in which Ozme52 quoted a mock-objection to the mixed Greek and Latin roots of ‘polyamory’  (as seen on a t-shirt).   In response, vrimj offered ‘oiligamory‘ as a root-congruent substitute constructed from a combination of ‘oligopoly‘  (a marketing term)  and ‘polyamory’.

    An enquiry revealed that ‘oiligamory’ was an unintended mis-spelling of ‘oligamory’,

    Recognising the need for a word describing polyamorous relationships with oiled people, ‘oiligamory’ became ‘oilyamory’, and thus this definition page was conceived.

    From oil + -y + -amory

    oil  from Middle English  oile  ‘olive oil’, from Anglo-Norman  olie,  from Latin  oleum  ‘oil, olive oil’, from Ancient Greek  ἔλαιον  (elaion)  ‘olive tree’, from  ἐλαία  (elaía)  ‘olive’, supplanted Old English  æle

    -y  suffix ‘having the quality of’, from Old English  -ig and Proto-Germanic  -īǥa-  and  *-aǥa-,  from Proto-Indo-European  *-qo-.   Cognate with Old Saxon  -ag,  -ig  (Dutch  -ig),  Old High German  -ag,  -īg  (German  -ig),  Old Norse – agr,  -igr;  and with Welsh  -eg,  Latin  -icus,  Ancient Greek  -ικος,  Sanskrit  -इक

    -amory  suffix from Latin  amor  ‘love’.
