Sorry, is a unicorn a woman who is exclusive to their couple too? Elusive and exclusive?

If we were to go with a Wiccan theme I would go with whatever Pan is. He gets around that little devil

Speaking as the sagitarius that I am, a centaur would do me proud, they certainly have the reputation... Check out some famous centaurs and you'll see!

Don't know how that relates to a hot bi guy though, but then how does a unicorn?

By the way, I have a very hot bi guy! My husband! He has just started a relationship with a wonderful man. Moving slowly, but all is good. Very redpepper approved! More and more I am happy for them...

That's so refreshing to hear! Congratulations to all.

I'm not sure about the exclusivity thing regards the unicorn (in conventional usage), etc. But I'd say that exclusivity needn't be there in order for one to qualify. Exclusivity wasn't a part of any definition of "unicorn" I've seen.

Exclusivity IS part of what makes the "Unicorn/HBB" stereotype "elusive".

See:

http://tacit.livejournal.com/295369.html

where it says "Will she agree not to fuck anyone else?"

Okay, but this is where things begin to get so tricky that some folks will wonder why we're attempting to "legislate" the usage of terms like "unicorn".

I can only say that I don't see enough evidence to suggest that common usage of "unicorn" in the poly "community" (discourse?) restricts the unicorn to (availabilty toward) exclusivity -- or polyfidelity in a triad. A "unicorn," therefore, is a single bisexual polyamorous woman. And its important to keep in mind that she is not a single bisexual swinging woman. That is, the relationship she's desired to enter into is a loving relationship, not merely a sexual one.

Such a unicorn is perhaps a little less elusive than the one seeking -- or willing to enter into -- a polyfidelitous relationship, but she's still a "unicorn".

And so it would be with the hot bi guy, whatever he will be named.

EDIT:

I believe there are probably quite a large number of triads out there which are semi-"closed," or quasi-polyfidelitous, or whatever. That is, they are committed to being a family unit but also allow for some physical and emotional intimacy with others outside of that family unit.

This is not that complicated. A hot bi-female is called a unicorn in the colloquial vernacular, whether she's single or involved.

So the question becomes what to call a hot bi-male. My suggestion: bicorn.

LOL!

There's no damn such thing as a bicorn! Unicorns, at least, are rare. They do exist -- if only in the pages of children's books.

Show me a bicorn, I dare you!

After careful examination of the "flow chart" linked to in post 17 [http://www.polyamory.com/forum/showp...&postcount=17], I've decided that either (a) the author of that flow chart is decidedly NOT a polyamorist or (b) the author of the flow chart is simply cracking a joke about people who are not polyamorists and yet pretend to be polyamorists.

Let's see here...

That would be a Fawn. Although a Fawn typically lives for the moment and the pleasures to be found.

And before you ask a satyr is similar but his horns are typically longer and curled and he has the body of an ape I believe.

JRiverMartin: There's no damn such thing as a bicorn!
Oh dear, you are wrong!
"Bicorn: A mythical beast, fabled by the early French romancers to grow very fat through living on good and enduring husbands. "
Only problem is that a bicorn is a "plump female monster, resembling a well-fed panther with a human face and a broad grin"
Unfortunately I cannot find a good picture of one. :P

I'm gonna have to stick with Centaur.

So it could be a married woman that is involved with a couple?

sorry for the confusion, but I am just realizing that I might once have been a unicorn if the definition fits for married women.

A fawn, thanks Vandalin.... yes, I guess they do live for the moment don't they... hmmm.... swinger definition maybe...

Indeed I was! I had no idea that there really were bicorns! Being female, and plump, they probably aren't our best choice to represent the elusive hot bi poly guy.

I've never been wrong before..., this is very strange!
