Vampire Bill Compton – dark, mysterious with a dash of southern genteelism. Vampire Eric Northman – tall, blonde and arrogant. Both fuckably gorgeous! So what girl wouldn’t want them both? In a very hot dream sequence in last week’s True Blood episode, everyone’s favorite damsel in distress, Sookie Stackhouse, explores the very sexy yet extremely complicated world of polyamory.
“I think I’m in love with both of you,” she tells them. “I’ve always been this self-conscience good little girl who’s too scared to think outside the box… especially when it comes to love and sex… but as of right now I’m putting that little girl behind me.”
When asked exactly what she’s proposing, she replies, “That I don’t have to be yours… or yours (said as she gazes at each bloodsucker). I’m proposing that the two of you… be mine.”
Protests ensue from the possessive vampires.
“This is SUCH a double standard!” Sookie states, clearly annoyed. “When it’s two women and one guy everyone’s hunky dory with it… but when a woman tries to have her way with two men she is totally and completely in love with, everyone’s hemmin’ and hawin’ … it’s either both of you or nothing all all.”
Clothes come off. Hot boy/girl/boy sex.
Wouldn’t this be an interesting dynamic for the show if they actually explored a poly relationship for Sookie?
It isn’t cheating if he said you could!
“Our perspective is, you don’t avoid what’s natural and you’re going to be attracted to people,” Will explained to Now Magazine in 2008.
“So sometimes we have the discussion: ‘Wow, this or that girl is freaking gorgeous.’ I’m not going to say anything to my buddies that’s any different than what I say to my wife.”
“If it came down to it, then one would say to the other: ‘Look, I need to have sex with somebody.’ In our marriage vows, we didn’t say ‘forsaking all others.'” he said.
Jada went a bit further in a radio interview on WJLB Detroit in June of 2010:
“We always have people that we’re attracted to that we talk about. That don’t stop just because your married. Somebody’s always gonna catch your eye. That’s real. Somebody’s gonna always be prettier than me, and somebody’s always gonna be more in awe of him than me and he gonna be like (in Will’s voice) ‘yo she really like me’ (laughter) but as far as somebody being right for us… is there somebody right for a nice night? Maybe. But somebody that can sustain our life and sustain what we’ve built together, absolutely not!”
See? Cleverly worded answers that don’t exactly put to rest the open marriage thingy. Not that there’s anything wrong with open marriages – if they work for you. I have a similar arrangement and it’s awesome!
But earlier this week, a report broke that the Smiths are separating – which they eventually denied with another cleverly worded statement, saying their marriage is “intact.” Now, though, TMZ, has dropped this bombshell:
In Touch Weekly claims in early August Will had become increasingly suspicious that his wife was having an affair with her “HawthoRNe” co-star Marc Anthony and secretly flew home from a movie shoot. The mag claims Will walked in the house, found Marc Anthony and Jada together and left the house crying.
Reps for Will and Jada said Tuesday Jada had not been unfaithful to Will, specifically mentioning Marc Anthony in the denial. A source close to the couple tells TMZ … Marc was at Jada’s home… when he went over to look at a DVD.”
Here’s what I think, based on numerous couples I know into swinging, cuckolding and open marriages. This whole ‘open marriage’ thing was probably Will’s idea. After all, I’m sure he has women throwing themselves at him all the time. He probably never thought his wife would actually participate. So when she did, it shocked him. Sorry Will – you gave your wife permission to get ‘jiggy’ with whoever she wanted. And she apparently did! And who can blame her? What girl wouldn’t want to be plowed by a latino bad boy like Anthony? Hmmm…
