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?

I would suggest Centaur or Manticore... although Centaur goes along with the equine theme of unicorn at least.

I like this about it as well. I'll through my weight behind Centaur as well -- provisionally. Let's first see if any objections to Centaur arrise. There may be unknown good reasons not to choose Centaur(?).
