Polyamory married and dating episode 1 online
So much for the cliché of women competing with each other for the “real” prize of masculine attention.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.The San Diego group, which consists of two young and attractive 30something couples who we meet in the midst of their decision to move in together, are clearly entrenched in the New Age camp.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.Now I need to make it very clear that I am not involved in any way with Showtime’s polyamory show, but I do know the San Diego cast and their community quite well.And I do have a bit to do with the existence of the San Diego community in particular and the national and global polyamory communities in general.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.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.
While there are still plenty of people who are sure that anything other than heterosexual monogamous marriage is bad and wrong, there’s been a huge shift in public opinion over the years.So it’s quite a breakthrough to see airing on Showtime after all these years.I’m very happy about it, and would love to be a creative consultant on a polyamory sitcom or movie some day.In my opinion, succeeds brilliantly at introducing seven main characters in less than thirty minutes.
That they manage to present a true to life portrait of polyamory as it’s commonly practiced along with some glimpses of hot group sex is a minor miracle. And it’s certainly more enjoyable than parading a poly family or two out to be interviewed by a talk show host and then letting a hostile audience have at them as was the style back in the day.
Hot group sex among beautiful, young people is certainly a proven formula for success.
