I’m very flexible.

Time will tell.

David

Time will tell.

At risk of sounding stuffy and old-hat, it doesn’t bode well.

Shy Ted

I want to see a picture of Meghan. Although I'll regret it.

Xas7wcrg9e

Basically, this guy is not just a sexual c**k, but a physical property c**k as well.

See, this is why I dislike people unnecessarily self-censoring what is presumed to be an obvious slur. Is that supposed to be cuck, cock, or one of each in some order?

Say what you mean d*mmit.

Karl

Honestly, reading each of these relational horror stories I don't know whether to laugh, cry, vomit or buy a shotgun.

Of course.

I woke up alone.

I’m trying to imagine the psychological stresses involved. Judging by the article and his various tweets, Billy doesn’t particularly like Kyle and says they barely speak and are “not close” – they seem to have little in common, beyond the obvious – and I doubt that Billy’s interview, his airing of dirty laundry with readers of New York magazine, will help on that front. I mean, if “day four” of Kyle’s proximity is resulting in unhappy stories for complete strangers to read, I’m guessing Billy’s polyamorous project is doomed.

Again, I’m reminded of how people with psychological problems often search out situations that are all but guaranteed to exacerbate those issues.

David

Those intrigued by Billy’s “sex-positive” podcast can indulge themselves here.

Whether a thing can be both “sex-positive” and psychologically ruinous I leave to the reader.

Naturellement. I may have inserted an unnecessary carriage return in there, for comedic - but accurate - effect.

I’m assuming there’s some kind of rota system. Perhaps a pecking order.

There is at least one capon in that farmyard.

SumDumGuy

Perhaps a peckering order.

Fixed that for you.

We watched some TV shows, we smoked weed

In other words, the same thing they do when there isn't a mass hysteria quarantine in place.

Scott

"I don't know whether to laugh, cry, vomit or buy a shotgun."

Buying the shotgun is always a good choice in these matters....

Boomzillawtf

@Xas7wcrg9e, I agree, the self censoring is unfortunate. He's explained before that he believes that advertisers punish him for putting "cuck" in a post, so he puts in the asterisks. It's definitely "cuck," though.

Governor Squid

No laughing at the back.

Terribly sorry, teacher. I just couldn't help myself!

We watched some TV shows, we smoked weed.

From whence cometh this marvel of agriculture? Is this an Amazon Prime service, or an Uber Eats kind of thing?

(Asking for a friend.)

orthodoc

Amazing. These twisted hipsters have done the impossible - make sex unsexy.

And I can only imagine how lovely they must be in person.

If they are truly 'woke' it will end up with Billy and Kyle getting together and Megan on the couch.

Whoa. Steady on, barkeep. :-)

David

Whoa. Steady on, barkeep. :-)

As I think we’ve discussed before, and to avoid any confusion and subsequent umbrage, it doesn’t mean that you get a fractionally cheaper beverage. Just a slightly smaller one, for the same price.

Hey, I have overheads.

Darleen

Just a slightly smaller one, for the same price

I'll remember to use this at closing time when I'm designated driver.

If Darleen starts selling squirts of hand sanitiser, the house takes 20%.

Billy just needs to exert some dominance.

I want some anal. Megan? No? Ok Kyle your up. Get that sweet ass over here.

I do hope there’s enough toilet paper.

Hmm...

Reviewer #2

Seduce him to establish dominance.

Trollin’ on the River

Something tells me neither of the males in this relationship are dominant.

Billy Procida [for it is He]

I'm definitely not! And certainly wouldn't want to be!

I love it when women like your wife visit New York, post on Reddit, and tell me to do what you couldn't. :Hugging face:

I'd say that was fighting talk, but we all know it can't be.

Sam

Historians will look upon this period of Western Civilization as the Great Boredom. And no, I don't mean this minor virus blip but a good chunk of the 20th the entirety of the 21st century. Nearly all political and cultural phenomena are a result not of wanting to achieve something but out of sheer ennui.

Burnsie

Amazing. These twisted hipsters have done the impossible - make sex unsexy.

Agreed. There's more sexual tension in a nursing home.

I gave her some birthday sexual lovin’.

You can just feel the raging testosterone and passion, can't you?

BrassG

have done the impossible - make sex unsexy.

Clearly you haven't met my ex-wife.

MC

There’s a part of me that’s relieved that Megan has another person here, because then I don’t have to be everything to her.

This guy doesn't seem to be an exact fit for 'cuck'; he's clearly not desperate for this woman's time and attention. It seems that, rather than being in this relationship because it's all he can get, he's there because it is all he can be bothered with.

Actually dealing with her on an adult level is far too much effort, so he's happy with 2 nights a week and then palming her off on Kyle.

I'm not saying this is any less fucked up BTW.

Governor Squid

Nearly all political and cultural phenomena are a result not of wanting to achieve something but out of sheer ennui.

Several generations of my forebears worked awfully hard to provide me with a life where my biggest worry is boredom. I'm not about to castigate them for their efforts, even if it has led to "influencer" becoming a thing.

David

If anyone has trouble with comments not appearing, email me (top left) and I’ll rummage around in the spam filter.

Sam

I'm not castigating those who came before Gov, as it's up to us to stand on their shoulders and build something greater. Instead we're all going to find out what happens when a majority of people in a society act like listless 19th century minor royalty.

Jack Klompus

Brooklyn remains ground zero for every neurotic, socially retarded, hive-minded, faux sophisticate on the planet.

aelfheld
I’m very flexible.

Sorry.

I had to either laugh or rupture myself.

Jack Klompus

Didn't the last hipster life-advice podcasters from Brooklyn to gain prominence do so by offing themselves with helium filled bags over their heads?

Hal

Brooklyn remains ground zero for every neurotic, socially retarded, hive-minded, faux sophisticate on the planet.

I've been encountering hipster fantasies that one must be associated with Brooklyn.

Based on previous reports of quite contrasting stable and adult, my reaction keeps being something of A hipster citing Brooklyn? That's odd, you don't seem to be ultra orthodox Jewish . . . .

The Proprietor

I hung out at the periphery of the polyamorous in Los Angeles in the early 90's. Nobody had what you could call a professional job. Most were trios that involved one zaftig woman, a fat man, and a skinny soft man. If there were children involved (usually from the woman's previous too-young marriage), they were messed up. Their lives were totally chaotic -- did bad things keep happening to them, or did they keep bringing it on with poor choices, I'll leave to the reader. They were all unhealthy from either eating junk food or eating what birds eat. Nobody exercised. No one was ever on time. A fabulous lifestyle.

Jeff Wood

OK, now they are indefinitely cooped up, perhaps we should organise a sweep on who will kill whom, and when.

I live in Italy: ask me how I know what will happen.

David

Nobody had what you could call a professional job. Most were trios that involved one zaftig woman, a fat man, and a skinny soft man. If there were children involved (usually from the woman’s previous too-young marriage), they were messed up.

As Tim Newman and others have illustrated repeatedly, polyamorists often feign an air of radicalism and sophistication, and rely on rather implausible self-flattery, as if their questionable arrangements – especially when children are involved – weren’t largely a result of failing to comprehend psychological practicalities and some fairly obvious aspects of human nature.

The overlap of ‘polyamorist’ and ‘person with mental health problems’ has been noted here before, more than once. Again, it’s worth bearing in mind that mentally unwell people may often search out situations that compound their neuroses. And polyamorous relationships, which tend to entail a much higher risk of feelings of anxiety, jealousy and abandonment, don’t strike me as ideal for someone whose mental health is already a bit touch-and-go.

David

Right, this week’s ephemera has been compiled and should materialise just after midnight. I’ll see you heathens in the morning.

Bandit

I’m very flexible.

I bet Megs is too

Yes it sounds absolutely inevitable, pretty soon they are going to end up with a mixed metamour

Andy

That woman will have a fanny like a bulldog eating porridge.

Dirty bitch.

Mr. Fart seems to have stunned the patrons into silence.

Two Mules For Sister Sara, perhaps?

When Megan's done with them, I mean.

Trevor Hilton

I dearly wish I could experience some measure of discombobulation about this. But I can't. I tried - hall-heartedly - for a few seconds, but I can't work myself up enough to express any kind of emotion whatsoever over this subject. Or even make a wry comment about it in this lovely place.

Governor Squid

...we’re introduced to a Brooklynite comedian...

If I might ask for a point of clarification -- does Billy call himself a comedian because he writes funny jokes and stands up in front of people to tell them those jokes, or is it more of a salve for his ego because so many people laugh at him?

If the former, does he write traditional set-up/punchline jokes, or is it more observational humo(u)r, or does he just describe his lifestyle to strangers and let them react as they will?

Henry

I wonder if Megan nudges the subject towards threesomes and storms off in a huff when the guys fail to take the bait.

Then the chaps look at each other "Shall I go after her or will you?"

Also "[Megan] manages who she spends her time with". Another euphemism. What they mean is that Megan chooses who she wants when she wants him, while the chaps sit around awkwardly, waiting for her ladyship to show favour.

It wouldn't work, would it? The whole thing is probably made up. I know there are plays and novels written about people in these psychologically masochistic relationships, but do people actually last very long in them?

tkdkerry

That woman will have a fanny like a bulldog eating porridge.

It took me a split second to remember that a Brit fanny and a Yank fanny are not the same thing. The first image was somewhat more humerous. Somewhat.

Rowdy

tkd: never pat a woman's fanny in England.
