That means that if four people are in a polyfidelity relationship, they are allowed to sleep with each other, but no one else outside their foursome.

The pod of Kamala, Michael, Jen and Tahl is back with another new family.
The series follows polyamorous families as they navigate the challenges presented by polyamory.
Polyamory Season 1 debuted on July 12, 2012, Season 2 premiered on August 15, 2013.
In Polyamory, which is defined as the state or practice of maintaining multiple sexual and/or romantic relationships simultaneously with the full knowledge and consent of all the people involved, the term Unicorn is used to describe a bisexual person (usually though not always female) who is willing to join an existing couple, often with the presumption that this person will date and become sexually involved with both members of that couple, and not demand anything or do anything which might cause problems or inconvenience to that couple. The couple is usually considered a primary relationship, while the girlfriend will be a secondary partner to both.
She isn’t allowed to do anything with one member of the triad, always with both.
