Default Poly-Friendly Places to live... I suck at google search. :(

So-Maca and I are off the pity party about our attempted move that went to hell in a handbasket.

I thought I'd go online and search for ideas on places to move, because we are no longer bound to the Idaho/Washington area.

But-I can't freaking find anything worth a shit using google search. (I know-I'm internet illiterate)

I wanted to work towards finding out where the most poly-friendly laws were, then within those-the most poly-friendly communities and then go from there.

But I can't find shit.

We're a poly-quad that lives together and we're "out", with 4 kids still at home. So it's pretty important that we not move somewhere that we're going to get a lot of harassment about raising kids with 4 adults in the home...

Any suggestions?

Not sure about this, but San Francisco might be a good place to consider. (Earthquakes aside.)

The enitre West Coast (from Mexico to Alaska) is nothing but falut lines and volcanos.

Seattle has a large sex-positive community - great for poly & kinky people.

San Francisco, CA

Vancouver, BC

Victoria, BC

New York.

I think just about any of the major centres would be good.

Vermont is pretty laid-back if you like a more rural setting and don't mind lots of snow in winter (and the winters are not as long or dark as they are in Alaska)

I'm not sure what you folks do for a living. That's something to consider when deciding on where to move.

Yes Neon-it is a huge thing to consider also.

Maca is an electrician.
GG is a Custodial Supervisor for the school district.
Mimi is an office manager for the local office that handles state funded day care assistance to families in need.

(I don't work-I homeschool the kids).

Maca would prefer not to be IN a city-He'd prefer 5-20 acres of privacy.
But for work purposes and open-minded socializing-close enough to drive to a city (1-2 hours) is a good plan.



Don't mind snow-just need shorter winters (6-9 months is too much) and preferably warmer weather overall.

I don't think California will happen.

Would love to go to Canada, but I don't see that happening.
How would one even DO that, move to Canada....

Seattle is AWESOME! We almost moved BACK about a month and a half ago. Then we met a new interest, and well....yeah we decided not to. We found that Seattle has a HUGE swingers community, and almost everyone there is open to whatever.

Seattle has a huge community that is really active. They even have a center for sex positive communities! I am just finding out about stuff now in order to hopefully go and visit.

Don't know about the laws here - that would take some research, but I have always felt, that at least here in the Los Angeles area, just about anything goes. Due to the large imigrant popluations and the crazy price of housing, it is not uncommon to have lots of adults and lots of kids living under one roof. Homeschooling is also pretty common.

Beware: Huge taxes and housing is astronomically expensive, not to mention insurance costs.

I once read boston had one of the largest poly communities around. Might be worth looking at

according to my unscientific searching, WA seems to do ok as well for the community. Might be something there

Vancouver or Victoria, but they are canadian cities
