Am I the only person who watched it and found it lame?
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

Lame in what way? I think they did a pretty good job of showing that some phrases/issues keep coming up in poly. It wasn't the best-made video I've ever seen, but it's not like I'm jumping up to create my own, so I'm not going to judge theirs too harshly.

No, you're not the only one. I produce media, so it was very hard for me to get past the low production values and unattractive cast. Better audio & lighting, some music, more variety (of people and settings), and some decent editing (it's so bad!) would improve it. But it was fairly creative in some spots. And I thought most of the phrases they said were lame, but there were maybe two or three cute ones that made me chuckle a little and aren't as lame as the rest. I liked the spirit of it, though, and that overrode its lameness for me, so I tried to get on board and share a quote I liked.

"I feel like I'm in Nazi Germany" <-- This was my favorite bit because I've totally been like "omg the fb relationship settings aren't faaaaiiiirrrr." and then stepped back and said wait... I *might* be overreacting.
