Sam is in a polyamorous relationship with two women, Anna and Megan. Both women speak positively about the arrangement, citing increased self-confidence and an 'ego boost' from having multiple partners. While some of Sam's work colleagues are curious about the arrangement, others have reservations about the future. The downside for Sam is that dating two women can be costly, with two sets of relatives to consider when it comes to gift-giving. However, the three of them spend time together, exchanging presents and watching movies on Christmas Eve. Both women insist that sex with Sam is 'phenomenal' and that they feel fulfilled. Sam sees only positives in their arrangement, as absence makes the heart grow fonder, and he always has plenty to talk about with both women after their time apart.
