Another day, another “Hey I posted a similar thing this day last year!”. Last year, I wrote about the polyamory-themed YouTube show Compersion, and today I’m here to tell you about a different one:
Unicornland is an 8 episode web series about Annie, who has recently gotten divorced and is exploring having sex with couples! And it really does what it says on the box. Each episode features Annie interacting with a couple in some more or less sexual way. It depicts a diverse set of couples and many varying “types” of sex, some kinky and some vanilla. It’s pretty dang explicit so definitely don’t watch it at work or in front of small kids or your aunt Mildred or whatever.
There isn’t much of a plot in this series outside of what I’ve mentioned and honestly… for the most part I didn’t mind that. It felt… strangely freeing to see someone just… enjoying sex with different people. Or, sometimes, wanting to enjoy sex and things not working out as planned for some reason. It was also really nice to see a solo polyam lady get some screen-time; what little rep polyamory gets is often so focused on the idea of a couple “opening up” their relationship. That’s a valid story to tell obviously, but not everyone comes to polyamory coupled, so it was cool to see that represented too. There were some things in the last couple of episodes that made me think more of a story was about to develop but… as far as I know no season 2 is in production so I guess not?
I’d love to see a season 2 if it ever comes out though!
Though I’m not sure about how the show’s writer, Lucy Gillespie, identifies, the cast (and, I think, other crew) includes several non-white, queer and disabled performers so I think it’s still worth a boost. Go watch it, it’s sexy and fun and human and nice! Click here to see a full list of episodes.
