5:30 Topic: Poly mythbusters
- The original article that inspired this episode
- My original list:
- It’s all about the love
- Only men want it
- No one ever gets jealous
- It’s more evolved than monogamy
- But when I put it to you, the listeners, you voted in these top five myths:
- Poly = fear of commitment (aka “you’re just afraid to settle down” or “when you meet the Right One you’ll change”)
- 10:16 Poly = orgies (also general promiscuity and sex)
- Poly is bad and confusing for the children
- 16:04 Poly = cheating
- Poly doesn’t work or doesn’t last
