Why shouldn't you? 所以它是可能的 且科技也使我們能夠如此 Polyamory looks like it could be, as its advocates suggest, the future of relationships in general. 但理論背後的問題在於忽略很多細節 細節又是 And, more urgently, of yours in particular. 最容易產生問題的 你會忘記若搬去鄉村 Like many aspects of existence, polyamory is convincing in principle. 就無法臨時去壽司店 而且鄰居會每天5:30把你吵醒 Big, general ideas, usually are. 東西都會變得異常貴 而且被邊緣化的感覺並不好 To take another exemple: （當直接民主發生）我們會忘記群眾發表意見時 In principle, many people feel it would be nicer to give up on the rat-race in the city and relocate to the countryside. 可能造成荒誕不羈的結果 再加上我們對於施政的冷漠 It's healthier, housing costs are lower. 也沒有考量瑞士社會本身的特殊性 You'll be able to grow vegetables and reconnect with nature. 多邊戀也是如此 即使原則上看起來 Or, to take an exemple from politics: 好像成熟且適合用來規範情慾生活 我們最好顧慮細節 In principle, many people feel that direct democracy with referendum every weekend 我們可以想像當狂歡後 伴侶對我們 to determine every decision sounds like a great idea. 拋媚眼後 立刻回到有氣氛的床上找其他人 We'd finally get the kind of government we want. 我示意想要加入 但是其中一個陌生人拒絕 It happens in Switzerland so it's obviously possible. 問穿著奇怪內衣的人是誰 又聽見一個伴侶達到高潮 And technology has made it much more possible to organise. 而是由另一個陌生人引發的 這經驗很複雜 我們也會忘記 But the problem with principles is that they are perilously prone to leave out the details. 當接受多邊戀 便不容易找到適合取悅我們的人 Which is where the problems are located 當然 我們可能接受到不和自己胃口的人的邀請 They encourage us to forget that if we move to the country, we'll be hampered in our plans to order sushi at short notice. 但現在就變得難以拒絕他 即使我們找到喜歡的類型 The neighbor's tractor will wake us up at 5:30. 他的情慾胃口也許又跟我們不合 他可能也喜愛拍打 Things will be surprisingly expensive. 但跟我理想相比 力道不是太大就是太小 And we'll have a terrible sense of being left out of the party. 抑或他喜歡打扮成海盜卻拒絕戴眼罩 讓你受不了 Or when it comes to direct democracy we forget the whimsical and terrifying nature of mass public opinion 或他真的會吐露不雅言詞 但他真的太沒有創意 along with our own disinterest in the details of policy 還有討厭的口音 我們的伴侶可能 and the entirely exceptional nature of Swiss society and public life. 找的到很多新奇美妙的朋友 我們假定他們對我有興趣 Things are no different with polyamory. 但事實可能不是這樣 我們也可能忘記當東西全歸自己 When at certain times the general principle of polyamory strikes us as a mature and viable option for organising our sex lives 擁有的感受多好 小時候我們都不太愛分享玩具 但是借借是不錯 we'd be advised to hold a few details in mind: 五歲時 其他小朋友搶走我們的瓦斯爐玩具假裝做飯 - We should picture how challenging it can be 我們會感到深深厭惡 我們每個人都有這種 when at, an orgy, a partner gives us a wink as they disappear 強烈佔有慾 另外 我們挺忙碌的 into a softly lit bedroom with two other people. 多邊戀需要花時間 伴侶們在我們可以的時間 We make a sign to join them but are politely, yet firmly 可能很忙 好不容易找到空檔 他又想要跟那個 rebuffed by one of the strangers who asks gruffly who the weirdo with the strange underwear might be. 我討厭的牙醫一起 即使多邊戀看似自由 Hearing a partner orgasm at the hands of another is a complex experience. 它還是涉及了許多詭異奇妙的情緒 它會導致 - We may forget too that once we sign up to polyamory 分離 悲傷結尾 被拋棄感和怒氣 我們必須去掌握 it won't be entirely straightforward to locate other people who excite us deeply. 很多人內心的紛擾 而不只是較能理解的 Of course, we may have offers from types we don't much fancy 單一伴侶 有些伴侶會突然哭泣並提及自己母親 except it will now be agony to explain why we don't want them. 但我其實只想追求短暫情慾刺激而已 其他人或許會 However, even if we do find someone we favor, it may turn out their sexual tastes don't quite match our own. 在我們戴上面具接受鞭打時控訴我們的自私 然後假裝 They may share our love of spanking, but it could be harder or softer that we would ideally prefer. 閱讀雜誌不告訴我們哪裡錯了 不可否認 多邊戀對 Or, they'll love dressing as a pirate, but they might refuse to wear an eyepatch 有些人是可行的 但對我們來說像理論可能無法做到 which is a deal breaker for us. 很有可能我們成為多邊戀者後 會面臨全部單一戀情 Or, they might indeed shout obscenities but their repertoire risks being sadly unimaginative 所遭遇的問題 只是它更頻繁 更有破壞力 而且 and their accent grating. 更辜負我們的期望 Our partner, on the other hand might all the while be having no trouble at all locating some pretty amazing new friends. We had assumed we'd be in demand, but that's not how it could turn out. We also tend to forget how nice it is when something is fully ours. As children, we never actually liked sharing our toys much though borrowing them was pretty nice. When we were five we deeply resented if other children took the fire engine or started a cooking game with the miniature kitchen. A disavowed possessive streak runs quite deep in many of us. Furthermore, we've got a busy life and polyamory takes a lot of time to organise. Our prospective partners may be busy just that night we're free or more inclined – exactly when we had a slot – to hook up with that dentist who is slightly repugnant in our eyes. Despite the freewheeling atmosphere even in polyamory there will be some surprisingly tricky and intractable emotions to deal with. There will be splits, painful endings, feelings of abandonment and moments of rage. We'll be exposed to the inner tribulations of a great many people rather than just those of a single well-charted spouse. Certain partners will burst into uncontrollable sobs and talk urgently of their mothers when all we were looking for was a rapid sexual thrill. Others will, as we stand at the bedside with a whip or a mask, accuse us of selfishness pretend to read a magazine and refuse to explain what's wrong. There's no dispute at all that polyamory will work very well for some people but like many alluring ideas, that doesn't mean it will work for us. Mostly likely, if we become polyamorous we will once again encounter almost all of the problems we'd once known so well in monogamy only far more often more chaotically and with a greater sense of violated expectation.
