I'm not going to joke on the article. I'm going to point out that this appears fake. This is in NY Magazine, a pretty prestigious platform. Note the author Michael Sonmore returns nothing on Google, has no LinkedIn, no other hits but this one article. Either NY Mag is printing a known author under a pseudo or they are crafting a fictional story to push a desired social goal. Strategically, this is to push poly on married people who read NY Mag, those who say they read Ny Mag and people who want to be like those who say they read NY Mag. Most normal human beings will scoff and mock this story, and Amerikaners wont even read it, but stupid SWPL types will. Even more specific, who reads stupid "Lifestyle" essays? This is to push it on SWPL married women. Remember the prog goal: break the nuclear family, push decisions and norm enforcement to the tribe, break down tribe identities except for the big government approved tribe.
This focus on ladies explains the details. The details are very female focused and friendly, and the key is the supposedly male narrator. Here is the feminist or female friendly poly fantasy. Pick up on key pieces of the story.
- The wife brings the idea up.
- The couple talks and talks and talks about it.
- The husband is open to it and agrees.
- The male writer recycles the old canard that his wife is hitting her sexual prime in mid-30s (ha).
- She is a mother of two (a 6 and a 3 year old).
- They have done this for two years.
- The husband has flings but not as many as her.
- He wants to hear her hot sex stories.
- One of her first flings fell in love with her
- Her new fling is Paulo.
This feels like a fake. It is reminiscent of the divorced mom using online dating to snatch a millionaire carpenter that Dalrock exposed. Without names, it is hard to believe. The unknown pen name in a major media platform reminds me of another pseudonym to push an agenda that felt a little off. A couple of years ago a writer named "Isaac Abel" was published in both the Atlantic and Salon. Really deep stuff like "porn addiction", "porn addiction making him a bad boyfriend" and "his one gay experience". It was admitted that Isaac Abel was a pseudonym. I'm just an anonymous blogger myself, but Isaac Abel sounded an awful lot like Ona Abelis.
Isaac Abel was a sex writer who lived in Brooklyn. Ona Abelis is a writer, sometimes on sex and relationships, who lived in Brooklyn. If you run samples of their writing through writing comparison tools, they have some striking similarities. There is no proof they are the same person, but by golly, shucks, the overlap is interesting. Abel's essay's messages are pretty straightforward: porn warped my mind and then later I had a gay night. The gay essay reads like bullshit you'd find on literotica or Tumblr where a young woman ships Indiana Jones with Harry Potter (these people exist). SWPLs read these media entities, so it pushes some prog friendly ideas chief being gay experimentation should be fine for all.
Swingers and cuck fetish couples exist. Hell, NFL coach Rex Ryan and his wife are swingers. It is also a small crowd that should not be pushed on the margins even if it is for the deluded yet high status NY Mag reading crowd. This is pretty nefarious that the media will use fiction, pseudos and possibly women writing as men to send a message. In all propaganda, the messanger counts just as much as the medium and the message itself. It is partly why our diverse society has a hard time with puppet leaders speaking because the speaker "doesn't look like me, doesn't get me". Advertisers are movign away from using human models in photos and videos due to this problem. The speaker or writer matters. This is why the media drags out Harvard kids from Texas to write of the climate of hate in Texas when Oswald shot JFK or Obama the Harvard student was used to counter the Bell Curve. These sex articles are supposedly by men to tell you that the latest deviancy that goes against long standing historical standard heterosexual male norms, mores and traditions are really cool. A man said so.
