Open Culture: Josh Jones: An Animated Introduction to Ludwig Wittgenstein & His Philosophical Insights on the Problems of Human Communication

Time: Wednesday Martin: Here’s How a Therapist Coaches Couples Who Decide to Have Sex With Other People

I collected this article because I thought “there’s a story idea in there somewhere.” Upon reflection, I’m not so sure. There are already so many films that explore themes of non-monogamy, consensual or otherwise. A story now would have to take all of these stories into account. It would have to be something more than the tensions within a relationship. Perhaps the story is in themes around shifting morality, or repressive morality. Perhaps there is a couple living happily in a life of consensual non-monogamy. A new authoritarian power with an oppressive moral code takes control. What happens to the couple? I just realised I’ve described the scenario of The Handmaid’s Tale. There is something in there, I’m just not sure what.
