Polyamory Takes Double Dating To An Extreme

Categories: TV

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?

@mikeymusto I watch nearly everything once, so I have seen as episode. Yawn, those poly folks discuss every hint of a feeling ad nauseum...


I'm creeped out.  know I shouldn't be but I'm creeped out.


I'm sure they are well adjusted people who have scintillating discussions once the cameras are turned off.


 @ladybug9 Why shouldn't you be?  That feeling is your conscience telling you that something is wrong.


 @SavannahMontgomery They really are. People have to remember that a couple of days of shooting ends-up being condensed into less than 15 minutes of stuff you see. All the non-drama stuff is cut-out because nobody wants to watch them sitting on the couch, watching TV and talking or folding laundry together.
