There was a recent documentary on ABC2*, which was about Polygamy. There was a view from a woman and two guys (who were apparently Bi, but not with eachother) and a Husband and Wife who picked up a female lover which helped their failing marriage. It was a pretty interesting watch, will post when I find it.

I'm pretty sure men are born to need multiple women. It is an inborn trait. We're literally programmed to fuck as many as we can to pass our genes on as much as possible.

It's exactly why rich and powerful men do exactly that. Because they're wealth puts them above all the stupid norms and expectations of common society.

I don't want a bunch of wives but it'd be cool to still be able to bang who I wanted without there being such a social stigma against it.

Isn't this whole topic just an issue about ethics?

Can't stop gays from wanting to be gay and can't stop men from wanting to need multiple women. Ethics in the past has stopped gay people from wanting to be gay for fear they will go to hell but ethics still currently causes men to resist there urges and be loyal to their woman. Similar subjects could include incest, cannibalism, video game violence, legalisation of drugs, internet piracy, and every single one of the millions of taboo subjects in the world.

Ethics sucks sometimes but with out it there is anarchy, but ethics change with the attitudes of societies.

Polygamy sounds like a great deal, until you realise that you're one of the low-status men who get to fuck zero women, and not one of the high-status men who fuck 100 women.

Pretty much.

Polygamy seems like far, far too much hassle for me. Having one partner is stressful and draining - not meant in a bad way, it's just that a lot of energy goes into a relationship and having to do that for several partners sounds like a nightmare.

I think this is all most people want out of polygamy, some of them just don't like to share *coughmormonscough* so keep them all.

Take the sex out of polygamy and it's literally a nightmare.

Imagine when their menstrual cycle syncs? End of fucking times.

This is already the case. Low status men already don't get laid. In any case you're forgetting the ugly/bitchy/don't fuck women who end up not wanted by the high status men.

That doesn't make sense. If there's a drastic shortage of available women then even the most hideous bridge-dwelling troll-women can find dudes. Hell, if your main goal in life is to find a high-status dude then your chances are much better with polygamy.

I even drew a diagram.

Funny you should say that. I wonder what the social effects of a whole bunch of men who believe in flying spaghetti monsters who can't get any action are?

Black means polygamy is allowed. Blue not legal. Light Blue Decriminalised.

So basically the cure for the conflicts in Africa and the middle east are to stop polygamy so that guys stop killing each other and enslaving each others women and just settle down have a few kids and get yelled out by their newly found wives for not taking the goat for a walk.

Nah, for every basement dwelling dude he has a perfect counterpart/mate ~somewhere~ . Take a look at your nearest low socio-economic area as proof.
