Subject: [Berkeley-Polyamory] Polyamorous Saturnalia Party: Dec 17: Berkeley, CA
This is to announce the 8th annual Polyamorous SATURNALIA Party, which will behappening SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17, in Berkeley, California, beginning at 7 PM,going until ???**********************************************************************Directions and location will be emailed to those who RVSP:RSVP to [address removed] you all probably know by now, Saturnalia was the outrageous festival ofexhuberance, joyousness, generousity and free-wheeling non-monogamous debaucherythat was celebrated throughout the Greco-Roman world. Saturnalia was the LateDecember festival, centered upon the winter solstice, and intended to commemorate Saturnia Regna, the mythical utopian era when all people enjoyed freedom, equality, peace, abundance and were naturally generous, and in which men were not possessive about the sexuality of their women.Of course, eventually in the 4th century or so, those puritanical, control-freaking Catholic Church leaders got a hold of the celebration, and don't you know people like that were just bound to fuck it up. They converted what had been all about removing all the restrictions of daily existence, one ofthe wildest and most outrageous celebrations ever - including very free expression of sexual and romantic sentiments - and squashed it all into the sedate namby-pamby, Brady Bunch celebration nowadays referred to a Christmas and New Years.But we aren't gonna let a little thing like the Church stop us fromcelebrating Saturnalia in the good old fashion way, are we?We plan to have at least three, and possibly more professional exotic- eroticdancers. This time we have comfirmation from TWO of the MALE exotic dancers, andare still trying to nail down the arrangment for the female exotic dancers.We also plan to have several professional massage folks who will be offeringfree "WINTER SOLSTICE" massages for female attendees. We may have as many asthree massages table going simultaneously. Massage is respectful and gentle, andperson receiving it decides what regions of the body are to be massaged and how.(So far, this offer only extends to woman attendees).We are still anticipating a visit from the goddess Ariadne again this year,and will have our standard "crowning with antlers ceremony" for those who careto participate.We will need to see valid PHOTO ID for ALL PERSONS who attend, especially thosewho are attending for the first time, and especially single males and those notpersonally known by me. Sorry to have to do this, but is it a security measureinsisted upon by our lawyer. We need the ID for everybody, not the same lameexcuse we heard last month about how you forgot it, showed it to me last month,or figured the rule didn't apply to you.We need 2 more people to help with set-up for a couple hoursbefore the party, roughly 4 PM to 6:30 on Saturday.We are also having to limit the number of single males. We have been doing thisfor a while, but we are now going to be enforcing this policy morestrictly.(Sorry guys). This does NOT mean there will be no single males allowed,just that the number of them will be limited. (Note that that the term "singlemale" is here defined as a male who arrives without the company of a female. Thefact that he may have four wives back in Utah or/and several girlfriends doesnot enter into the discussion).This is NOT a kid-friendly event. No one under 18 years of age will bepermitted. It will not be a g-rated event, at least not after 8:30 PM. This doesnot necessarily mean it will degenerate into a wild orgy, merely that there isno guarantee of a g-rating after 8:30 PMTENTATIVE SCHEDULEThe event is guaranteed G-rated until 8:30 PM.Approx 8:30 PM, delivery of the traditional winter solstice cake by thegoddess Adriadne.8:45 PM: This will be followed by the "bestowing of the reindeer antlers"ceremony for those wishing to make a traditional vow of non-possessiveness intheir future activities related to love and romance.Exotic/erotic dancers go on at about 9 PM.We shall attempt a slightly more structured snuggle party/puppy pile thistime.All females will be give a set of red cards, and they can give one to anyother person as an invitation to snuggle. The woman offering the cards makes theoffer, and sets the limits and conditions. Having this be a structured activityworked fairly well last month, so we'll do something like that again this time.Specific location and other relevant information will be given to those whoRSVP.RSVP to: [address removed] to see Yah'all on DEC 17!!
