**THIS IS A PRIVATE GROUP**
If we (the group members) do not know you PERSONALLY your request to join will be denied without explanation.
WELCOME to After Dark. (Also known as the AD group.)
The purpose and intent of the After Dark group is two-fold:
1. To support our parent group; the Denver Metro Polyamory Group, by providing a structure and space for members to explore the building of intimate relationships in a safe, accepting, adult environment.
2. To facilitate and work toward the building of an extended, polyamorous family within the Denver Metro Polyamorous community.
Polyamory is the practice of multiple, simultaneous, loving relationships. This often results in a de facto extended family with connections to metamours, significant others, partner’s partners, and so on. Our goal is to facilitate the building of an extended family within the DMPG membership based on the practice of mutual respect, integrity, honesty, and mature behavior.
Important membership information!!
Our events may contain sexually explicit conversations and or activities. You MUST be at least 21 years of age to join this group. We reserve the right to verify age at our discretion.
Joint or couple accounts are NOT allowed. Each member must have their own, individual Meetup account to join the group. This is to ensure we know who is coming to our events. Likewise guests are NOT allowed without prior approval from the Event Organizer(s). This is in no way meant to exclude anyone.
If you are a no-show at the first event for which you have RSVP’d since joining, and didn’t notify the Event Organizers in some way, you will be removed and banned from the group. We put a lot of effort into organizing and maintaining the group and being an unexplained no-show demonstrates a complete lack of respect for that effort which we will not tolerate.
If you have not attended an After Dark group event in the last 90 days you will be removed from the group. Our intention, once again, is to build an extended family. We want to see you regularly! If you are unable to make such a commitment, this group is not for you.
Those not contributing to the group will be removed. Contributing can mean a lot of things; hosting events, helping with setup/cleanup at events, coordinating venues, bringing supplies or food, taking attendance, kick-starting activities at events, etc. Think family! What would you do or bring to a special event with your family?
If you are not prepared to contribute to the group and attend every event you can, don’t join.
If you aren’t willing to participate in events (at your comfort level of course), don’t join.
If you are just looking for casual sex or a dating club, don’t join.
If you do want to emotionally connect with other poly folk, join us!
If you want to create lasting, possibly intimate relationships, join us!
If an extended family, and being part of something more, sounds like something you would enjoy, join us!
Important Group Guidelines!
(Please see the complete Group Guidelines document on Meetup under Files)
NO! It’s a complete sentence and means no… every time, in any situation. While we support everyone embracing their individuality, we also require acceptance and respect. It is NOT okay to judge people for their decisions to engage or not engage with others. Attempts to manipulate or bully others into activities with which they are not comfortable will result in your immediate ejection from the event along with removal and banning from the group.
If you are informed an activity or situation is making someone uncomfortable, stop at once and discuss the situation. Likewise it is YOUR responsibility to inform others if an activity or situation is making you uncomfortable, and request a hard stop to discuss the situation. We, the Event Organizers, are here to help if you feel the need to escalate an issue however, it is YOUR responsibility to contact us for assistance immediately!
Continued, repeated displays of inappropriate behavior or lack of consideration for others may result in your removal and banning from the group. Likewise if you continually object to or disrupt common activities within the group this may not be the group for you and we may ask that you remove yourself.
WE ARE NOT a dating club or swingers group (though there is nothing wrong with either of those). Randomly contacting members (trolling) you have not already met in person is NOT acceptable and will result in your removal and banning from the group. Your membership will also be revoked when and if it becomes clear you are participating in the group only for the purpose of casual sex. If you are here looking only for sexual encounters we suggest you find a more suitable group elsewhere.
