A message from my friend Pepper Mint at Freaksexual:
It’s actually my favorite poly web series so far. There are certainly painful moments in it, but they are painful to me specifically because they so accurately reflect the transition into polyamory. And the acting is great, and the cinematography is good. It’s a winner and great exposure for us.
I’m writing because they’re holding a fundraiser for the second season, and it’s a real one. No funds means no second season.
We’ve seen a number of web series go down due to lack of funding: Family and The Ethical Slut come to mind. I’d prefer not to have that happen again.
While this series hasn’t seen a lot of exposure in the mainstream poly community, it’s all over the black and poly communities. I’m in contact with the producer, Jackie Stone, and she also has a close relationship with Ron Young, as you can see in the videos. She’s getting input from poly folks and looking to do a really positive piece for the community.
I’ve just contributed. If y’all can either give money or spread this around, you’re helping with a poly media win, and really helping out black and poly people. Please and thank you!

Are polyamorous relationships sexist?
In a recent Cosmopolitan story, Zachary Zane explains why he decided to take his boyfriend’s wife on a date. Zane’s charming tale provides a perfect example of how he and his boyfriend’s wife develop a polyaffective relationship that makes all of their relationships stronger. It also provides a look at a real poly relationship beyond the tired trope of one man with two (or more) women and a one penis policy. Instead, this budding triad/vee has a male hot bi babe.
Like many polyaffective relationships, their emotional connection includes snuggling and some sleeping together in a big bed. It appears that both men identify as bisexual and there remains some possibility of sexual interaction for the triad in the future, but for now Zane reports that they are “rock solid” in their polyaffective relationship:
Since our little rendezvous a month ago, our relationship has been rock solid. And when I say our, I mean all three of us. My relationship with her, my relationship with him, and I’ll go as far to say their relationship without me. She and I have an understanding of one another and don’t feel in direct competition. Instead of approaching our relationship with the mindset of: How can I make sure my needs are met when they’re up against hers, my mindset is now: How can we work together to make sure all of our needs are met?
