Group Planning Meeting ~ Open to all Members ~ March 27, 2016

New Member Welcoming and Potluck ~ Sunday April 3, 2016

Are you new to Polyamory Toronto? Or have you been a member for a while but not yet attended an event? Here’s your chance to find out about the group, about living polyamorously, and about how the group creates safer space for members.

Attending this event will help you navigate your way in the community,  become ready to attend events, and understand how to have a voice in the group’s evolution.

The meeting will be in a round-table format which includes:
– an information session (the group’s organization, a definition of safer space, and some important terms in the non-monogamy world)
– questions and answers (go ahead and ask the questions that are bubbling up)
– a mix and mingle (start building your circle of friends within the community).

Poly Speed Dating ~ Saturday April 9, 2016

Are you looking for new poly relationships? Join us for our 2nd Annual Poly Speed Dating event!

Poly Speed Dating, which has been running successfully in the USA and the UK, is a social event where people meet a number of potential dating partners. The event takes into account gender preferences, individual/group dating preference, age range preferences, level of kink preferences, and welcomes all sexual orientations and genders.

During the evening you will rotate through several dates of about 5 minutes each. After each date you privately check off whether or not you are interested in romantically pursuing that person any further. Your choices are collected by the organizers at the end of the night and if you and your date both were interested, you will both be notified of each other’s interest and contact information by email after the event.

 Chat and Learn Saturday in Toronto ~ April 16, 2016

Chat and Learn Monday in Toronto ~ April 18, 2016

This months topic: Poly Relationships: What’s going on for Guys into Guys

This month’s Chat & Learn is a space for guys romantically/sexually interested in guys. We may identify as gay/bi/pan/two-spirit/queer or questioning, and have come into the world as cis or trans.  Let’s talk about our polyamorous desires, fears, challenges, successes and supports.

Openness, polyamory, ethical non-monogamy, friends with benefits, ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’, on the ‘dl’… What romantic/sexual/community relationships do we authentically want with one another? How do we imagine, communicate about, and respectfully build these relationships? What language do we have or can make to articulate and name what we want?

It may seem easier to connect online about some of this than ever before. Is it really? What is missing? What unique challenges may we have as guys into guys wanting to foster a poly-positive space and community?

Come to this unique opportunity to put these and other questions forward, increase our understanding of ourselves, and build community.

There is an elevator available for this event.

How To Get Freaky Without Being Creepy ~ Workshop By Charlie Glickman ~ Monday May 2, 2016

Exploring your sexual desires and fantasies can be amazingly fun, with lots of opportunities to create hot, sexy times with someone new or a familiar lover. But there are also lots of ways things can go wrong, especially when alcohol or the altered state of arousal kicks in. It’s easy to go further than you or your partner(s) want, which can cause some serious backlash.

These are important skills that people of any gender need when navigating sexual situations. The challenge is in navigating consent, boundaries, and touch without letting it kill the mood. When you can tune into your own desires, pay attention to those of your partner, and get to the overlap of everyone’s “oh, yes,” that’s when you get the reward of amazing sex.

Somatic sex coach Charlie Glickman will lead you through a series of fully-clothed non-sexual exercises to help you discover some easy ways to share your desires with your partner in ways that make it more likely that you’ll get what you want.
