San Diego Polys on the Ricki Lake Show

A month ago the quad family from Showtime's Polyamory: Married and Dating went to Culver Studios to get filmed for the Fox network's Ricki Lake Show on daytime TV (group photo). The show aired today, but the only clips I find on the episode's webpage are of other guests, including a swinger couple that came on just after them and commented on them (saying that swinging is about "falling in like" compared to polys "falling in love").

At any rate, Michael and Kamala got a moment in this brief promo:

The episode's webpage says,

...First, we venture into the world of polyamory, defined as "the practice, desire or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. You'll meet Kamala and Michael, who say a polyamorous lifestyle works for them... and Elizabeth, who says polyamory ruined her marriage.

Kamala and Michael's Rules for Polyamory

1. Do no harm

2. Only have relationships who enhance the lives of everyone involved

3. Safe sex

4. Honesty According to Michael, the most important of all the rules.

Could you ever engage in a polyamorous relationship? Let's talk in the comments.

Guess that's it. Did anyone see the show? (I have a day job.)

They came across as really happy and confident, but they didn't get to say much without being interrupted.

The sad anti-poly woman, that the show put on as a counterpoint, was an advertisement for not letting yourself get pressured into it.

They looked like they were having fun anyway.
