Polyamory: Married & Dating is a show on Showtime that follows the often awkward sex lives of married people and the people they’re dating.
You know those moms who see something on TV, something that pisses them off and blog/bitch online about it? Yeah, I’m about to do that.
For the most part, I am very open-minded. If you want to have partners outside of your marriage and your partner is cool with it, do it. Personally, I think the show proves that no one is ever totally comfortable with someone sleeping with the person they care about, but that’s beside the point. Consenting adults are allowed to get into whatever shenanigans they want, in my opinion.
My beef is with the show’s obvious main character and Showtime for allowing this to happen. Kamala Devi is a narcissistic, selfish person with a child she’s potentially damaging. See? I’m open-minded, until there’s a child involved.
In my opinion, lots of parents are swingers. I’m not, but that doesn’t mean I judge those who are. I judge the woman who puts her child, Devin, (looks about four) on her soft-core porn show on Showtime. These people created an orgy room in their backyard – for the show. Their son will be damaged and embarrassed because of the cameras that film him and then film his mom getting it in, in the backyard.
I would be less appalled if they mentioned their son, but refused to film Devin. He is not old enough to understand the implications of being on a show like this. If he were older he could consent to this filming, but he’s not. I’m not going out on a limb when I suggest that he’s going to regret this and resent his parents for forcing him onto this television show.
Showtime should know better. Children do not belong in a soft-core porn show!
So here’s some information on PolyAmory. Basically, these couples are trying to come out – so to speak. They claim that polyamory is as natural as being gay, straight, and bi-sexual and all the rest. They claim to freely love one another, without restrictions and it’s obvious from the first episode that they’re full of crap, like the rest of us.
It’s hilarious to listen to Vanessa claim openness to love, but clearly she is only in love with Anthony’s wife Lindsay. Anthony is at the very bottom of the totem pole, not receiving any love or action. He’s like a needy cat, who keeps getting shoved off the bed, but jumping back up anyway. After a while my friend and I turned it into a drinking game. “Every time you feel sorry for that husband, drink!” Lindsay wants to bring in a new lover and it sets her old lovers off, simply because they’re both in love with her. All of these people act obsessively, jealously and hurt by this mess. Most of these people are only in love with one person - not multiple people as the show claims comes so naturally to them. No one is happy!
Kamala and her group are far more hilarious. Kamala and her husband make claims to love this couple, Jennifer and Tahl. Only Kamala obviously only wants to fuck Tahl, because he’s younger and better looking than her husband. This upsets Jennifer who is only there to please Tahl and has no desire to truly make love to Kamala’s creepy ass husband, Michael. Jennifer is pathetic, because she whines and expresses discomfort and everyone ignores her. Instead of standing up and walking out, she just lays there and watching in misery her husband fuck Kamala. Kamala operates under the disguise that this is free love, but what she’s doing is actually very unloving and unkind. This is a woman without empathy, from what I’ve seen.
Plus, she must be a whack job, because who would do that to their kid? Okay, so you’re a sex therapist and you’re “liberated” sexually. That still doesn’t mean that sex to orgasm and multiple partners is something a child should be exposed to. It just doesn’t translate that way. Also, you’re filming everything. These people are filming their sex. They mentioned the kid was at Grandma’s, but that’s not good enough for me. Your kid does not belong on cameras! Your kid doesn’t not want to grow up with this!
No little boy wants to star in soft-core porn with his delusional, self-centered mother!!
So, here goes. I’m a mom and I found something offensive:
Shame on you Showtime! Shame on you for filming this kid and putting him in something that’s going to embarrass him down the road. Shame on you for subjecting him to heightened sexuality at such a young age. What you’re filming is borderline child abuse.
