I clicked through just expecting to ridicule, but these people seem to be having fun doing all of this. Just like foam sword fighting is probably a blast, I'm sure having a lavish unicorn persona and throwing sex every which way is enjoyable.
I think you missed the bigger narrative: guy has far out drug experience at burning man, comes home and tries to recreate the magic, realizes he's just lonely and depressed and using drugs and fantasy to escape his problems (e.g. reality check), remains loyal new age BS, but at least found a way to approach the new age stuff in a relatively manageable, healthy way without the drug abuse.
This video is geared towards the 'I told you so' crowd and I loved every minute of it.

I don't know if I can 5 Vice, but FOR FUCK'S SAKE five for barf.
It would probably make more sense if I auto-5'ed Vice for obnoxious all the time, but the fact that some poesters like Vice just sandpapers my balls.
That guy isn't a real unicorn. He's just a regular horse wearing a fake horn.

I don't like the use of "Hedonistic" next to "Polyamorous" because unless I've been living under a rock "Hedonism" still carries around a lot of very negative connotations which shouldn't be associated with something that's just fine and natural like a poly relationship.
What? Hedonistic just means "something done for the purpose of pleasure", usually sensual pleasure. That's it.
I'm guessing the "negative connotations" you're referring to were from people in this puritanical culture of ours who think sensual pleasure is inherently bad in some way.
In other words, the negative connotation is just because many people have a fundamental philosophical objection to hedonism.
Such people are idiots.
Yeah I know what it means, but I've always heard it is associated with some kind of depravity in something sexual or excessive, and not the other way around, that maybe we were born to be asexual and have fun. But like I said maybe the word's getting taken back, because that'd be cool. I just haven't heard the word since Church, and that was a loooong time ago.
"something that's just fine and natural like a poly relationship."
how's that steampunk utilikilt coming along?
Heh. It just depends on what you want in a relationship. I was in a strictly monogamous marriage for nearly 8 years, and what happened? I got cheated on, apparently more than I imagined, so I sort of gave up that dream after we split. Just depends on the person really, but I'm uncomfortable feeling like I'd ever be with just one person again like that.
While I agree with you in theory, IZ, contact I've had with people like the subjects of the videos over the years has been a very convincing counterpoint.
Also more than one of them have been rapey abusers. But a few were really good people.
Give it two-three years and Uni-homeboy will be charged with rape. I guarantee it.
Guarantee also that Purple/Blue hair is going to get in a fight with him at some point when he hits on another girl that looks like her.
Yeah being poly is not an automatic entrance into someone's pants any more than any other sexual preference. I've gone on plenty of tinder dates with folks who identify as poly, have a husband and kid at home, and guess what! She doesn't like me, or I don't like them sometimes. Just because we're poly isn't a ticket to fuck.
This is just a newage guru cult right? People with rich parents fucking each other and thinking it's profound?
If by "this" you mean "Burning Man" then yes.
We're not a space-faring species are we?
If it makes you feel any better, the "space-faring species" meme was never a serious proposition; it was a cultural myth meant to encourage obedience and dependency upon the globalist 1%. Now that the continued development of space travel no longer has any real military applications (prompting governments to slash space funding in response), it's no wonder people are putting the dreams of their youth behind them.
Besides, the central allure of space-faring, from "Princess of Mars" clear up to "Star Trek", has always been about the promise of meeting, and then fucking, exotic women who are not your wife. You can do that right here on Earth. You can do that as a Unicorn!
Think of the rave as Barsoom. We don't need to leave our planet, we've already arrived.
"I can't deal with my problems like I used to with narcissism and getting fucked up."
How did you 'used to'?
I'm in touch with the cosmos and it's telling me to be more self-indulgent. I think this is the core of the new-hippie, new-age movement. Their epiphanies are along the lines of: "I need to eat really good super food." Not, "I should volunteer at a soup kitchen."
