Polyamory Takes Double Dating To An Extreme
I thought it was going to be a new, kinky version of Pollyana.
But it turned out to be Polyamory: Married and Dating, so I haven't watched.
I can't even get one lover, let alone three!
The Showtime reality show is about "non-monogamous, committed relationships that involve more than two people."
For example, "Lindsey and Anthony are married, but live in a triad with their girlrfriend, Vanessa."
A triad? I can't even afford a duplex!
Wait, there's more:
"Husband and wife Michael and Kamala are adjusting to having two of their lovers, fellow married couple Jen and Tahl, move in with them."
Again, I'm jealous.
When all your lovers start packing up and moving in, it becomes a real-life Marx Brothers movie.
Utter hilarity ensues--and there are way more people to chip in on the utility bills.
But hold on a second, isn't this what couples always did? You know, cheat?
I guess this time it's organized, approved, communal, and it actually has a name!
Wait. Isn't this what gay couples always did?
Anyway, here's a funny review, which claims the show only includes youngish, good looking polyamorous folks who smile, have hip names, and don't wear bras, shoes, or facial hair.
Ooh. Anyone need a fourth for their quad?
