Default Name This Animal

Okay, okay..., somehow the term "unicorn" has been given definition. A "unicorn" is a "hot bi babe" who is single and polyamorous... and elusive--, one supposes, mainly because she's expected or desired to love both members of a "straight" couple..., in which at least the female member of said couple is... --you got it, bi.

But hold on a minute! How do unicorns continue to exist as a single-sexed species?

Let us imagine two queer guys, also bi, who are a couple. These do exist, no? Let us further imagine that they are considering opening things up to a third in a triad situation.

Or let us imagine two queer women, also bi, etc....

Why are these elusive animals thereby nameless?

Could www.polyamory.com provide them with a name?

Discuss.

Why isn't a "hot bi guy" who is "single and poly" also a "unicorn"? The reason may be that "unicorn" has come to mean "hot bi gal" ... etc.

But what shall we call the hot bi guy?

"Toad" or "snake" are not acceptable answers.

Dragon? It's a mythical beast but sounds more manly? Phoenix?

On the table for discussion (and perhaps future voting)...

Potential names for the "hot bi poly guy" desired by a male & female couple:

(a) dragon

(b) phoenix

(c) peacock

(d) gryphon

any others?

(Now I have to look up "Gryphon".)

Gryphon - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gryphon

Alt. spelling - griffin

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griffin

Sphinx?

Centaur?

Default Unicorns?

I had never heard the term unicorn (used in poly context) till I found this forum. I suppose I'm really fortunate because I've had three unicorns in my life in the past 12 years. Each different and very unique. But I didn't realize they were so hard to find (i.e., mythical).
My theory is that so many women are waiting longer to have babies and marriages that the poly relationships afford them the connections without the worry. But I guess I was wrong.
I really love women. I love the way they are passionate, complex and unique. I have never been with two men at once. It was just never part of my desires, even though the offer has been there. Who knows? Maybe that's my unicorn?

Culturally, it is acceptable for men to have many straight sexual encounters and it is ok for women to be a little bisexual. (Think of the sterotypical porn movie.) So a MFF threesome is considered mostly acceptable by society and so I think that is why bisexual women are in high demand.

However, I think we should try to think past that and figure out what is right for us in our moment. Maybe it is a V or W? Maybe a MMF triad? Maybe swinging?
