I've heard that the sexual politics of some of the communes in the 70s had effectively turned their meetings into hazing semiars. As the social relationship so radically differs, the experiment in polyamory is not without predicaments. I think that was probably resultant of an incapacity to cope with existing social relations and not necessarily due to the conept of polyamory itself, which I do think can be a good idea. The problem, I think, lies in reifying existing structures of domination concerning sexual politics whilst esposing alternatives to them, and, not necessarily with that polyamory is just to much of a clusterfuck to be effectively pleasant. In short, I think that it fails because people are insincere and not because it just simply isn't a good idea.

Of course, I've never actually been in a polyamorous relationship, and, so, this is just pure speculation.
