Poly Cocktails takes place on the first Monday of every month and has been going strong for seven years now. The information for the upcoming April gathering follows below.

Many people have contacted me personally for information on this group and Poly Cocktails. However, please know that I am not affiliated with Poly Cocktails nor Open Love NY in any official capacity - I simply post here whatever announcements they send to me in their emails.

To receive the organization's announcements directly, go here to visit their site: http://openloveny.com/. They have a presence on Facebook and Twitter, and make announcements on Google Groups as well.

If you have any questions, you can contact the organizers via Facebook, Twitter, or directly to openloveny@gmail.com.

Poly Cocktails House Rules

L
earn - Poly Cocktails is for learning about polyamory and developing friendships and connections. It is not a play space. No nudity, kink, or sex play is permitted at the event.

Open communications - Poly Cocktails is a place to exercise open communications with intention, foster interactive dialogue, facilitate trust, develop your listening skills, and give and receive support.

Verbal Consent - We encourage everyone to obtain verbal consent and explicit negotiations (as modeled at Cuddle Parties) before initiating physical contact (e.g. hugging).

Expectations - Check them at the door! Interest in polyamory does not signal sexual availability or indicate sexual orientation.

Respectful behavior toward hosts and guests is required.

Safe Space – Poly Cocktails is safe space for all sexual orientations and gender/kink identities, as well as those who identify as monogamous. No photography, video or recording of any kind is allowed without prior verbal consent of all parties involved.
