Re: Were there any people having open relationships in Trek?

A slut is not defined by her libido, it's the way she acts and carries herself. I would rather date a high class escort then some trashy looking chick.

Phlox on Enterprise is probably the closest example. He has 3 wives, who each have 3 husbands, who in turn have 3 wives... apparently into infinity, and says he has several dozen possible partners in this arrangement. And he seems to consider Ensign Cutler's suggestion of an extramarital relationship.
Also he enthusiastically encouraged Trip to respond to his wife's sexual advances in "The One Where They Get The Neutron Microscope"

It's not your place to judge other people, and I find what you've said here to be asinine.

I would add that I've known plenty of male sluts.

Ah, so this is what this thread is about, the old 'men having problems with polygamous women' thing.

Reminds me of that 94 movie Wyatt Earp... it works for some people!

JAMES: What you got against her, anyhow?
WYATT: She's a whore, James.
JAMES: Yes, she is, Wyatt.
(cut to Bessie leading a patron upstairs)
JAMES: And a hard-working one at that.
WYATT: What are you doing with her?
JAMES: Same thing everyone else is doing with her. Only difference is she doesn't charge me.
WYATT: It doesn't bother you?
JAMES: That she doesn't charge me? No, I'm rather fond of the arrangement. On a good day, I can even get her to cook and clean a little.

In the internet age if somebody needs a pimp is either really dumb or she works in a brothel because she wants to be a part of a comunity without being scarred of stygma.

Re: Were there any people having open relationships in Trek?

Even in this advanced internet age you speak of, hundreds of women are kidnapped and forced into prostitution through threats, coercion, and torture. And that's a conservative estimate. None of those women are willingly in the business. Some are forced to work for an internet site.

Yes some of them are forced and they should not be, but there are probably much less than they used to be.

Re: Were there any people having open relationships in Trek?

Maybe I'm a bit out of touch but there is no such thing as an "Open Relationship".
You are considered friends with someone until either you or them call it exclusive. Then when it becomes exclusive there are limitations put on both members as to dating. And then you're in a relationship.

If you're both dating other people, you're not in a relationship, you're just friends.

Now, if you're talking about an "Open Marriage" that's a whole different can of worms. I would hope that by the 23rd Century people would be more considerate of each others feelings than to do something like that.

Re: Were there any people having open relationships in Trek?

What could be more considerate of someone's feelings then giving them something that makes them happy and doesn't harm anyone?
