Who is louis theroux dating
He also meets prospective parents, who are often left unsure as to whether the birth mother will actually give her child away once it's born.

A new Louis Theroux film about polyamory airs on Sunday, and fans of the documentary king are in for a treat.
(For a little taster of what's in store: one scene sees him blindfolded, semi-naked and being fed cheese by a topless woman at a "sensual eating workshop", which is just crying out to receive the No Context Louis treatment.), the much-loved journalist and documentary maker delves into the lively, often agonising world of "ethical non-monogamy".
He is best known for his documentaries in the television series Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends and When Louis Met..., as well as his Louis Theroux's BBC Two specials.
His American-born father is of half French-Canadian and half Italian descent.
Louis Theroux deals with everything from Scientology, to polyamory, to pedophiles on a daily basis, but when it comes to personal questions, he has a tendency to shy away.
He travels to the US polyamory capital, Portland, Oregon, known for its motto "Keep Portland Weird", to immerse himself in the movement and meet families in various polyamorous arrangements.
What he finds is a mixed bag: some take to it like ducks to water, while others are left consumed by jealousy, upset and brokenhearted.
