Let's meet for drinks or snacks and get to know each other.

We'll come together at Cuvee, a nice wine bar in West Hartford with great, affordable happy hour food for those of us more hungry than thirsty. We'll mingle, get comfortable and eventually have some brief intros so that we can all hear what each other do, or what brought us to the gathering. We'll hear about events, organizations and happenings as well as other efforts people are making. We'll also give anyone a chance to ask and answer general questions about sexuality. We'll offer what we know to help people find therapists, open-relationship resources and communities, LGBT organizations, edgy and not-as-edgy workshops, etc. One thing: we want to be clear that we will not be talking about sex in the abstract. If you want to talk about gender or trans stuff, we want to talk about how sex is impacted by that. If you want to talk about orientation, we want to talk about sex and orientation. If you want to talk about women's concerns, we want to talk about them related to sex. If you want to talk about body image, we want to talk about that and our sex lives. If you're not comfortable talking directly about sex, you will be!

    Although I'm not a therapist, I felt very welcome in the group. In particular, Wendy, Rosalyn, Mala, and Carol were great hosts and everyone in the group seemed to have a wonderful time.

    I had to leave earlier than I wanted because I had committed to seeing a sneak preview of a movie entitled Belle. Trust me this is an outstanding film that almost certainly will be nominated for an Academy Award! It's opening this Friday and it's not to be missed. In the interest of full disclosure, I have no financial interest in the film!

    Sorry I won't be able to make it, I am not feeling well, and I was thinking this was at 7 instead of 5, so sorry for the short notice. I truly hope to catch the next meet up as this sounds like a very intellectually stimulating group!

      As a meeting planner for 20 years, I don't envy your having to ensure that the participants are coming for the right reasons. There are two individuals in particular that don't seem to understand the objective of this group. In one of those cases, I thought you were very diplomatic in your comments.

    • Rosalyn D.

      Paul, thank you, and frankly, I don't really mind if people show up thinking it's a hook-up. They'll figure it out soon enough.

  • Rosalyn D.

    We're all very excited that you're coming. We expect it may be very busy, as there are quite a few here, and also quite a few who said they were coming on Facebook. The organizers will be wearing a rose or a carnation so that you can recognize the gathering. We look forward to meeting you tomorrow night!

      Your original comments were intriguing to me so I'm sorry I won't have the opportunity to meet you this Tuesday. Please tell me about the nature of your art.

      May 11, 2014

    • Rosalyn D.

      So sorry you won't make it! Maybe next time!

    The people attending appear to have diverse and intriguing backgrounds that promise an intellectually stimulating evening.

      Memoo, this is not a dating meetup. It's not to meet women. Please look for another meetup with that in mind. Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
