Unicornland Is Too Real To Pass Up
Unicornland is a groundbreaking series about polyamory and sexual exploration. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted to see in a show series that explores non-monogamy, dating, and sexuality all at once. It was created/produced by Lucy Gillespie and directed by Nick Leavens.
Each episodes follows the adventures of Annie (Laura Ramadei), a newly divorced young woman. The series follows her experience dating couples. It certainly successfully pushes the envelope and explores the politics of non-monogamy, kink, and sexuality. Many scenes were filmed in Hacienda Villa, a popular and aesthetically pleasing sex-positive space. From getting tied up to scene negotiation, this show provides a good example of what healthy BDSM versus unhealthy BDSM plays out. For instance, in one scene, a woman who’s normally submissive tied up Annie too tightly and then gagged her, which made it impossible for her to yell out in pain.
Unicornland tells a tale that so much of the polyamorous community can relate to, it’s not even funny in the slightest, but it is entertaining! Some experiences are positive and sexual while others are offensive, such as when one girl calls her straight after Annie was done cuddling naked and kissing her. Each episode focuses on Annie’s relationship happenings and the different people (mostly couples) she dates. The film is named after how one couple called her a unicorn because she is a “rare, magical creature.”
If you want to see what young bisexual and pansexual women face in polyamorous and kink communities, watch this series. The term “unicorn” is more fitting than one might assume. In the polyamorous community, “unicorn” is the term used to describe a bisexual/pansexual woman willing to date a couple. It is used disparagingly to imply that a person who’s willing to date a couple and love them both equally. Like real unicorns, she faces many instances of objectification and degradation, sometimes being treated like a third wheel and placed into situations where couple's privilege is obvious Some people treat her sexuality like a plaything while others are more considerate. Either way, this series is tantalizing and indirectly schools its audiences in etiquette surrounding kink and polyamorous relationships.
Unicornland has an interesting spice to it. Annie is relatable with the spark of innocence she always retains in her demeanor despite dating continuously throughout the series. She deals with some of the trials and tribulations of a popular story in polyamorous dating. If you want example of what not to do, this series will also serve you. Either way, Unicornland is very entertaining and compelling.
