Is Monogamy a Dead End?
Show Notes

What do you do, when two just won't do? A rude question from Rocky of Wild Nights with Rocky Powell sends our gals into the world of polyamory. But this isn't your grandma's swingers club. Polyamory centers around the idea of engaging in meaningful, romantic and physical relationships with multiple partners, turning the very core of our monogamous world up-side-down.

Are polyamorist showing us an enlightened, co-dependent free life, or can you really have your cake and eat it too.  Explore what polyamory means, what the lifestyle entails and if it can make you happier, all to get to the bottom of the rude question: is monogamy a dead end?

Email us your impolite questions at rude@impolitesociety.com and visit our website for info about the show and your hosts Laura and Rachel.

Check out Rocky's amazing show Wild Nights with Rocky Powell and let her know we sent you!
