"A thoughtful, layered, smirk-free show about people constructing their intimate lives outside socially accepted bounds, it makes a humanizing, live-and-let-live case for consensual, ethical non-monogamy."

"An excellent performance...Clark presents a thoughtful and nuanced look at nonmonogamy. While the interviews often reflect positive and loving experiences, they also show us darker sides in polyamorous experiences like racism and dishonesty."
