Tv online polyamory married and dating
What struck him in particular was how closeted poly people feel they need to be, unlike people who just date around. Because they’re fearful their families would shun them, their employers would fire them, everyone will look at them like sex-crazed fiends....“This lifestyle choice isn’t all hedonism and group sex,” one “poly” person told me via Facebook.Multiple lovers, stuck in the closet By Jeff Edelstein So a few weeks ago, I wrote a piece about the Showtime reality show “Polyamory: Married and Dating” and, you know, had some fun with it. “It’s mostly based on all the normal, mundane yet wonderful stuff you ‘monos’ experience on a daily basis (like) grocery shopping, TV, spats over who has to mow the lawn.Meanwhile, the preview for episode #2 has Kamala Devi refusing to share her new girlfriend, Roxie, with her husband Michael, again defying viewers’ preconceived notions about the likely challenges of polyamory.My insider information leads me to suspect that the Roxie drama is at least somewhat contrived, but the demands for special treatment are classic and at the very least we see “asking for what you want” role modeled perfectly.I only mention it because one of the complaints I hear fairly regularly from some quarters is that while “hot bi babes” are highly prized in poly circles, bi men are less welcome.Contrary to what most people might anticipate, jealousy arises in the MFF triad when one of the women (the legal wife) lets it be known that she has a new (male) love interest.Both families struggle a bit with jealousy and inclusion, both families are happy to jump into bed, cameras and all, and both families feature strongly bisexual women.Rumor has it that at least one of the men in the quad is also bi, but if it’s true, this hasn’t surfaced yet.
With all those qualifiers in place, I’ll say that is a far better portrayal of polyamory than I feared and not so good as I had hoped, judging from the first episode, which aired July 12. The show flips back and forth between two poly families, one in Riverside, California and one in San Diego.
Same goes for the other person, who at first posted her thoughts on my Facebook page.“I realized that it may cause problems where I work,” she said.
“I have no problem answering any questions about it, but I work for the state and, well, you understand, I hope.”Actually, I didn’t understand, but I do now....
Gay people certainly know what I’m talking about here.
And maybe it’s time we all try to let go of all the rest.
