This is an announcement that the Polyamorous Pioneer Day Party is happening in Berkeley, California, SATURDAY, July 21, 7 PM - 10:30 PM.
PIONEER DAY was originally a Mormon Holiday, intended to celebrate the day when a ragtag a band of highly non-monogamous Mormons, fleeing the tyranny of the monogamous world, arrived in Utah to establish their version of a non-monogamous, polyandrous, polygynous utopia in 1847. (The TV show "BattleStar Galacta" recounts the events in slightly exaggerated and glamourized fashion).
Polyamory is a very different thing from Mormon-style polygamy. Most polyamorists can't abide Mormon racism, sexism, their coerced marriages to child-brides, their archaic, fanatic "head-in-cement" religious fundamentalism, one-sided polygamy, or even those really happening Mormon under-garments. However, since this is the only American holiday overtly centered on the celebration of non-monogamy, we'd figured we'd adapt it to our own purposes. We hope at all traditional Mormons will appreciate our homage to their historical tribulations.
We shall even have a supply of POLYGAMY PORTER BEER on hand for the occasion, shipped directly out from Utah especially for this event. (A limited supply of POLYANDRY ALE will also be on hand).
Due to the failure of our human DJ to show up two months in a row, we have abandoned that notion in favor of a small computerized DJ not much bigger than a postage stamp. We do still have about 40 different polyamory songs, and will be playing some of them during the party (YEAH!!)
In line with the patriotic nature of this occasion, we are planning to have a visit from the great goddess Libertas aka Saint Rabia, (who was the inspiration for the Statue of Liberty). We still need a volunteer to serve in this capacity – must be female, and be able to carry a burning torch in your right hand, a water pitcher in the other, and do so with poise, grace and dignity becoming the goddess of personal freedom. Please arrive SOBER).
Party begins at 7 PM, SATURDAY, July 21, goes until 10:30 PM (officially). Permission to stay after 10:30 is granted on an invitation-only basis.
This will not, NOT, NOT be a G-rated event. In the interest of conformity to the notoriously conservative political climate of the surrounding community, we will guarantee a g-rating until 8:30 PM. People uncomfortable with non-g-rated activities are asked to vacate the premises by this time. This does not necessarily mean it will degenerate into a wild orgy, but simply that a G-rating is NOT guaranteed after 8:30 PM.
We will DEFINITELY need to place SOME limitation on the number of single males that can attend. (This doesn't mean NO single males will be allowed, only that in order to have some semblance of a gender balance, we will be limiting the number of single males).
Last month we attempted to have a bonfire in the backyard firepit area. We had to cancel that part of the activities because the required fire-tender flaked out and did not show up. We'll try it again this month and see what happens. But we need the fire tender volunteers to show up to do this.
Starting around 8:40 PM or so, we plan to begin the official "Mormon Lingerie Contest." All persons are welcome to wear and display their authentic Mormon holy "nether-garments," or their nearest possible approximation thereof.
We also hope to a have visitation from the Goddess Libertas/Saint Rabia, whose image is alleged to as inspired the famous Statue of Liberty at approximately 9 PM.
Please observe the "no-nudity outside the house" policy this time. We plan to have at least two exotic erotic dancers again (one male, one female). They are tentatively are scheduled to begin their performance at approximately 9:10 PM, performance to last approximately 45 minutes. As before, they have agreed to strip all the way down to nothing. (This cost bucks to set up, so we will be aggressively seeking donations to help cover the expenses).
The structured puppy pile has been working out great in recent months, so we'll plan to do that again. This activity is tentatively scheduled to begin at 10:15 PM.
As before, primarily due to the concerns about laundry, no exchange of bodily fluids is permitted in the South Room, but other arrangements can possibly be made upon request for those interested in crimes against nature. It is important to follow this rule - so please do!! And remember the main rules of puppy piles AND for every other activity at this event is: Ask AND get approval BEFORE you touch anybody: No means No; Don't means DON'T and Stop means STOP! Be RESPECTFUL!
PRIME DIRECTIVE #1:: Participation in ALL activities are strictly on a voluntary basis.
PRIME DIRECTIVE #2:: Anyone acting like an asshole will be unceremoniously ejected.
Please RSVP if you are planning to attend. Exact directions and location will be provided to those who RSVP.
We really need two volunteers to help with setup for a couple hours on Saturday, roughly 4:30 - 6:30 PM.
We are requesting a clean-up donation of $3 per person from all attendees, with the amount to go towards hiring a professional crew to do what is necessary after the party.
See you on July 21: (SATURDAY) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
