All are welcome... feel free to pass this on to those who might have a serious interest. New folks, please come see our hosts and greeters with nametags and introduce yourselves!

And please remember to read our guidelines at the end of this email.

POLY COCKTAIL GUIDELINES:

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

*O*pen 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.

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

*E*xpectations – check them at the door! Interest in polyamory does not signal sexual availability or indicate sexual orientation.

*R*espectful behavior toward hosts and guests is required.

*S*afe 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.
