We get spooky on today’s episode. From haunted bars to a deadly lovers quarrel we tell the mysteries of unrequited love. Then we travel across the ocean to the castle of horrors of the Blood Countess. All the gore and queerness your heart desires is in mixed together in this cauldron of an episode.
Last episode we gave a deep history of relationships in early civilizations and the evolution of monogamy. In this episode we discuss the modern day concepts Polyamory. While the practice of having multiple partners is not new at all, Polyamory is a recent development in Western culture. We detail the differences between open relationships, polygamy and polyamory.
We finally reached episode 69 and of course we had to talk about sex. Specifically how the idea of monogamy started and what polyamory really means. In this episode we go way back to early civilizations to discuss the evolution of marriage and single partner relationships. Were we always monogamous? Is it natural for our society? How does monogamy relate in the queer world versus the straight world? Don’t worry, we talk about it all. And set up for part two of the series. When we dive into the ancient concept yet modern lifestyle known today as Polyamory.
We’re wrapping up our world listeners month with a bloody tale from the land down under. At least twenty-seven gay men were hunted and murdered along the White Cliffs of Bondi Beach in New South Wales. Most of their deaths remain open cases to this day.
