Well polyamory of a sort. I was watching the Daily Show last evening when they did a story on gays wanting not only marriage rights but the right to get divorced. In their true comedic style, they were doing an exaggerated story about a minister who opposes gays getting divorced “No Gay Out – Jason Jones believes that God Intended man and woman to be stuck in a loveless union, not gays” . They threw in how gay marriage hurt sthe sanctity of marriage between men and women and started interviewing a couple about how they felt about gay divorce. The couple said they believed in “equality under the law” and did not have a challenge with gay divorce. The reporter then asked how the husband’s girlfriend felt about it and panned the camera back to show a woman on the man’s other side holding hands. I was floored and cracking up. In true Daily Show style it quickly went down hill from there as the reporter dimmed the lights and they then cut to the triad in bed with the reporter standing over them holding a dildo.
It was very funny though I am not totally sure it is good. Still the Daily Show has an audience of millions, it is about comedy and the entire skit was a satire on the right wings ridiculous arguments against gay marriage. This kind of media shows people are noticing open relationships. You can watch the show at http://www.thedailyshow.com/ .
So yes the concept has made it to the big time The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
