Curious about books or songs with poly themes
Do any of you have a favorite book, movie or song with a poly theme? I'm kind of starved for a good romantic storyline that doesn't just assume that there can only be one love.

I'm actually writing a novel with a poly love story for national novel writing month and got curious to see if there is the same feeling among other poly folks. I get tired of the same old mono assumptions in all my music and literature and it kind of bums me out sometimes.

Any thoughts?

Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, etc.) features poly fairly heavily, and is excellent in its own right.

Have you done a search?

Poly-themed books, movies, TV shows, and music are all the subject of this thread: polyamory in movies/music/art?

Also stuff for kids here: poly books and stories (also films) for children

Thanks. Sorry, had a brain fart. I've searched google and not found much, but forgot to search the forum.

My girlfriend's girlfriend by type o negative
Trying to love two by william bell
Love in stereo by the monks
You're the two by roches
Cactus tree by joni mitchell
Don't ever call your sweetheart by his name by christine lavin (less about poly, more about semi-honest non-monogamy, but it's funny)
Torn between two lovers by mary macgregor
You and your friend by snake river conspiracy

Aaaaand, now that I took the time to type that out, I found an awesome list that mentions all of the above plus a whole lot more: http://www.aserve.com/holly/culturefaq.html

You're welcome, guys! I started building that list in high school. :)

Ugh. DH just sent me this. Suzanne Vega My Favorite Plum lyrics.

I'd forgotten it and this video is so charged. Captures that horrible! Wonderful! Horrible! Wonderful!

"Ack! My honey is out dating with my blessing because I want to be Open!" between and betwixt feeling.

Kinda erotic pacing floor/weird while you wait for the date to be over with the new person.

Or so it seems to me.

The Wheel of Time series (haven't read it-my 12 year old told me)
Outlander series has a subset of characters who have a poly triad.. or V...? (great series)
Kushiel for certain (great series)
