Someone mentioned Star Wars - why shouldn't two consenting adults get it on without getting hassle? What guy hasn't entertained the thought of bedding twins?

That's part of why I always considered Luke to kinda be a whiny little bitch.

It's a pretty long thread so I haven't read all the responses... but did any one mention

Keeping the Faith -- where two guys (both are best friends and are great) fall for a similarly great gal. And she falls for both of them but because of the lives they lead-- one is a catholic priest and the other a rabbi, she can only have one. And she chooses the rabbi.

But the rub is the catholic priest was willing to give up the collar to be with her and he didn't want to loose his relationship with his best friend. Sounds like a perfect opportunity for a mfm - v!

Alot of movies that involve explicitly autistic characters, in my view seam to be highly demeaning also many try to make every quirk look back and completely overlook the sorts of injustices that do exist, while simultaneously trying to give worse example of what it's like than rainman.
I think just about every movie would be better with a poly ending, provided that the movie isn't utterly shite to begin with.

it must also be said in real life someone like jaja binks would have argued against… a more powerful leader.

Slightly off topic.

Has anyone ever noticed the insurance commercial where the couple's in bed then up pops a contractor and tells them they're ok.
Then the narrator turns the light on and off.

Okay, this screams sooo many things in a subliminal way.

First, when the contractor sat up. That said to me that was a MMF sleeping arrangement.
Right before the light was turned off. The contractor guy laid back down as if he sleeps there anyway and the husband never moved.
They didn't switch places so the wife would be in the middle. It didn't seem awkward to them at all.

Next was the narrator sitting there in the dark like a voyeur.

Does anyone else see it the same?

I had exactly the same feeling when watching the Bachelorette! It's ironic that such a mononormative dating show serves as an excellent demonstration that one can love multiple people simultaneously. However, once they picked the final winner, all the others were immediately demoted to "just friends." Isn't it sad?

Not sure if it has been mentioned already, but I think the movie Imagine Me & You could have a poly ending.

Lurking can do that. I lurked for along time before I replied to a comment recently. Sometimes the right words can bring things out of us. Am I right? The only things that can do it faster is: road rage and music

Cyrano de Bergerac (the play, and any of the movie versions of it).

That way, the title character wouldn't have had to be such a miserable emo loser. I mean, well-spoken and poetic as his nose is long, but still . . . such needless anguish!
