This. And there aren't any polygamists on this board.

You missed it. This was extreme sarcasm. Kevin is in a MFM V.

Gross! Why is more better? Um, ratings? Every man's dream, to have a harem? So sexist, so anti feminist. Nothing to do with POLYAMORY.

When it comes to casting for television shows, we would appreciate more information on the production company and intent of the producers, with more than just an email address. You are asking people to out themselves publicly, which could cause a lot of harm in their personal lives.

Since this board is for polyamorists, rather than polygamists, and it's illegal to be married to more than one person, I highly doubt you'll get any bites.

There is one woman here who IDs as a polygamist, since she has one legal husband, another man she is handfasted with, and a live in boyfriend. Of course, the state recognises her as married to one man.

I remember we had one guy here a few years back who had a harem of sorts, several of whom were exotic dancers. They had constant fights, jealousies, drug issues, etc. They were miserable. All you'd see as a producer looking for ratings is-- sexy catfights, woohoo, let me film that! We saw a sad fucked up life.

Why isn't polygamy considered polyamory on this forum?
Polygamy is simply a lopsided form of polyamory.You may disagree with the sexist nature, that doesn't change it is in fact polyamory. Accepting the tbings you like while looking down on others you don't....hmmm, seems alot like how polys can be treated in other forums, are we not here to escape conformist judgement?


I came here for open minded discussions, not judgement of this type of polyamory or that one.
Love many, the basis of polyamory.
This is suplosed to be open minded (see: non-judgemental) community.
If a person chooses to have many commited diads, and every adult is willing, why are you judging them?

I would assume those living an alternate lifestyle wouldn't be so quick to judge other also living an alternate lifestyle if they so choose.

Also of note, I xisagree with the sexist nature of current polygamists. However I supoort every adults right to choose without being judged.
Also, poly/plig shows are terrible and sow misinformation about the style of relationships.

I only want to add that I saw this and thought:

"Dude, where is that one guy with the lion pride organism castle thing and the champagne and pink lamborghinis?"

*sigh* It was too good to be true. I'd like to see a show based off of him, something like "Portlandia." It'd be fantastic.

I am also thinking of what I've read about John McAfee's poly lifestyle. He had seven girlfriends at one point, but only three of them made any serious attempts to end his life.

I don't think anyone has any serious criticism of individuals who practice polygamy (or whatever as long as it's all among consenting adults, just in general)...but it is tiresome that every show casting we hear about that is poly-related, is all about one guy and multiple women. As though that's the only way people poly. Because they figure that's what the normals want to see, I guess? *shrug* ??
