wow, this is so topical to my life right now. i just found out the guy
that’s been pursuing me is part of a polyamorous relationship with a
couple. he has sex with the girl and is great friends with both of them. i
was totally shocked because he genuinely made it seem like i was the only
thing he ever wanted…now i don’t know if i want to pursue anything with
him because i have this ideal that a guy that loves me will only want to be
intimate with me. by ‘intimate’, i don’t mean sex, but i mean
intimacy…which he already has with this girl since they are such great
friends. i think it’s normal to want to have sex with other people while
you are in a loving relationship…but is it normal to want intimacy with
other people?? trisha’s example of the ‘secret’ is perfect— i totally
agree that a secret is so much more special when shared between two people
than with ten.
I would never do this. It makes me uncomfortable and I believe most people
use it as an excuse to cheat on their “beloved” because they are bored or
selfish. I am also not a fan of not being sure if my partner is still clean
if she/he slept with other poly people. Those who keep it in a contained
group and everyone is okay with it, that is fine. But don’t go sleeping
around because your a dickhead.
Omg please have multiple topics next time.
16:36, Trisha gazing at Ross, picturing them having a family together. Then
whispers “yes” to her self? Lolololololovers.
What happened to Steve’s beard?!?!?!?
NONE of you went to school for this. Sshhh.
Do to others what you want them to do to you. In the most positive way with
the most positive result.
That comment about polyamory being the future made me think of Brave New
The anthropology student in me is rolling around on the floor, in pain.
However, the side that loves to listen to peoples opinions on these types
of matters is really happy XD
Wow. Most of that was just incorrect speculation about a subject that has
plenty of well known facts. Also, I don’t see why something like monogomy
being popular makes it “less advanced” than other options.
You do you do give a fuck what people think i’m bisexual and don’t give a
flying fuck what people think if you want to fuck all the women in the
world go right ahead. also i haven’t seen a mean comment yet hmmmm.
Jealousy is a natural feeling, monogamy to one person FOR LIFE is not a
I believe nature intended us to be monogamous mammals.
is it just me or is the audio incredibly low
This conversation made me sick.
I do my self, sometimes three times a day.
This was the least entertaining Table Talk for me xD it’s not the hosts
fault. I’m ok with all of them. Just that long debate about something I
don’t care about at all. I have an opinion of it and I don’t consider it
wrong or up to debate, so I learned nothing from this and it wasn’t even
But I’m sure the next one will be better. 1 bad, 29+ good, it’s a good
I think it was nice to hear these guys voices outside of the entertainment
mode. It’s good just to here a serious and honest voice from normal people.
NO you pick one person, Marry them and you get to fuck that one person. You
want to have sex with a bunch of fucking people then you go be a fuckin
scumbag, don’t rationalize your horrible fucking view on shit.
FUCK YOU JWPLAYER FUCK YOU!!!
There was actually a book written about if there was a society like what
they talked about in this video. It’s called *Brave New World* by Aldous
Huxley, and I haven’t read all of it (I’ve actually only read the
beginning) but from what I understood of it, it shows what would happen if
there were a society like that and how monogamy fits into it.
I talk about marriage all the time and I don’t think marriage is necessary
in anyway. Getting married isn’t magically going to increase your feelings
for each or to fix any sort of issues you may have with one another. Why
should I spend thousands of dollars to conform to society?
trish shouldn’t talk
Why are people trying to say one kind of relationship is “more advanced”
than the other? How about neither is better than the other and it just
comes down to how people feel? This was a very interesting Table Talk, but
I didn’t like how Steve and Ross were kind of acting as if monogamous
relationships are only based on jealousy, and that it is not what people
want for themselves but what society wants.
I feel like Trish gives the most thought out answers while everyone else
just tries to go against the norm to try and seem more intellectual. Idk,
just my thoughts.
