MA 065: Romance and Polyamory – Multiamory


Our culture is steeped in notions of traditional romance. In so many love songs we hear, “You're the only one for me.” Our movies, TV shows, and dozens of other art forms idolize the couple, the soulmates, the star-crossed lovers. Our notions of “romance” are still heavily tied up to sexual exclusivity. If you have multiple partners, how do you get all mushy and romantic when you can't fall back on the usual monogamous phrases? In this episode, we examine the ways that art and media shape our views of romance, as well as ways to make your partners feel special and cared for outside of the language of exclusivity.
