He is overjoyed not to be using a condom now; this new bonding means the world to him.
And also, the rules that mono-oriented Jesse puts on her, like no kissing any other man but Tahl on the lips; these seem potentially creepy.To him, condoms and safer sex feel like relationship diminishment. He is scared about getting more involved with the poly tribe, Tahl in particular. has mono attitudes written all over his very body language.It surprised me how sensitive to seeing this I've become.Down the freeway in San Diego, the poly pod of Kamala, Michael, Jen, and Tahl have been living together for a year since we witnessed their move-in and tribulations last season.They seem stronger and happier together now, and if complex networked intimacy is their thing, they've got heaps of it.For official news and publicity see Showtime’s site for the series.Here are all trailers and video clips for Season 2 so far. If you didn't see it, they give a good idea of what it was about.Chris is a beefy, chiseled mixed-martial-arts fight champion with, apparently, a kind and thoughtful heart.He now owns and runs the gym Legends, where he coaches up-and-coming MMA fighters.Three busy entrepreneurs, who for three years have lived and loved together — in Hollywood, in a gorgeous California home with a pool. They tell of their happy life and intertwined relationship, and explain how they discuss and negotiate through unexplored territory."When you find out that this is what love is for you," says Chris, "you're kind of flying by the seat of your pants." And we see that they're gorgeous with their clothes off. Indeed, we are set up with what to look for: Leigh Ann cooks while the other two walk the dog, and she frets how she seems to be getting left alone a lot these days.
