16:40 Topic: Is Poly Trendy?
Rob wrote in to ask if poly is just a trend for people searching actually searching to cheat/date around; guests Siren and discuss with minx how it was far from cool/trendy for them when they came out; we muse over whether it is a younger generation discovering poly as an option that makes poly come across as a “phase” or trendy; is poly the next hip thing to be?; perhaps it’s simply that the mainstream medida is picking up on poly resources online

Dmitra brough up an interesting question in the poly discussion this week: why do we think we deserve to have all our needs filled?–how would you answer this?
