I can empathize with the difficulty of making a show that will drive up ratings AND be realistic-can't be easy. Who wants to watch the boring neighbors next door LOL!
I can imagine if someone were filming our dynamic-it wouldn't get any ratings. There just isn't a call for watching 3 middle age adults raising kids, wishing they had time for more sex, do dishes, clean house and babysit grandchildren. LMAO!
I don't know why not. Sister wives does well and doesnt involve porno

Well if someone wanted to film us I would let them. I just can't imagine anyone being interested in watching. LOL. I wouldn't watch-I think I might fall asleep.

(I don't watch tv-so it's kind of arbitrary)

Sister Wives is about Polygamy, not Polyamory..?..
There is no mutual love on that show, it is one guy with 4 separate and not equal families.

So? It's about people, family dynamics, friendship. Just like polyamory. I could have picked any reality show and it would be the same

I can't think of anything more equal about a man considering all his partners wives, regardless of whether he is legally married or not, what a strange thing to say?

What is not equal is the fact that the wives are mono to him, just like countless mono-poly Polyamorous relationships out there, doesn't make it any less Poly as long as everyone agrees to it.

<pinching myself> Wow, I agree with Natja for once.

Consenting adults can love each other and choose their own configuration You may not agree with it, but then again it's their lives, not yours.

Im not comparing polygamy to polyamory! My point was that they can pose polyamory in a pg light, focus on family dynamics, day to day life and still be interesting. I get that its showtime so sex sells but just about anyone on here could be a reality tv star ad nd people would watch because its not a typical set up.

I wasn't responding to your comment Inyourendo, I agree with your post actually. I don't feel the sex is totally necessary except to cater to a certain demographic.

Not to mention that the way some of the men creep over women makes me want to hurl (recalling the pot luck dinner in the first series) bluergh, bluergh....(bear in mind that I have no desire to hug complete strangers at a random party).
