    *EVENT SERIES: "OC-Polyamory doing Tantra"
    **1st proposed & drafted at the end of meeting, see 1st occurrence http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ description "MHS910: at today's meeting, Astara mentioned her background in Tantra, so I Destiny suggested she host (be the main host for) an event on our group, and she agreed."

      Attendee Michael http://OC-Polyamory/e...­ enthusiastically added he could could possibly get a venue for this Tantra event, a very valuable offer to us! However sadly a few hours after the Meeting "Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 1:58 AM" he emailed me saying he couldn't offer this, indeed be involved with this event at all, as afterwords it occurred to him the romance he currently was most seriously perusing (Liz, a rekindling of a former 7yr relationship) he suspected might find out & would hold against him his having any involvement with this event.

    Michael http://meetup.com/members/36133...­ (who Meetup.com now mis-hides as "A former member") attendance&review of this event.
    *attended; also this also being his 1st polyamory mtg ever to attend anywhere!
    *As I recall, he shared his extensive background in swinging; saying again is doubt about polyamory thinking that would mean participants would all have to live together, but attendees also explained to him that wouldn't mean that.
    *He had very nice deep personal conversations with other attendees helping them & discussing with them on their relationships; he seemed to have good report with them.
    *He delightfully said he could help with our proposed Tantra event http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­

    Bridget http://meetup.com/members/76887...­ &her husband Michael (who Meetup.com now mis-hides as "A former member +1 guest") attendance&review of this event.
    *Attended. She just joined Meetup Jan18(<1mo go) &this was the 1st of our events they attended.
    *As I recall,Michael explained they'd been married ~7yrs but Bridget had&has a notably strong sex drive so for yrs they've sought out extra men to satisfy that4her but it was hard for them to find men who would treat her&them w/respect,so just now they were starting to explore the polyamory community.
    *@the mtg,I solicited 4event listing hosts for our upcoming poly pool party re-listing,&Bridget offered to do this http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ +2b a carpool host 4it,but updates @that link
    *Unexpectedly they left ~1hr early saying they had to go home to care for their kids; but both said they had a notably good time at this event.
    *Bridget also offered&gave me her biz card.

    *We have no no-shows.
    *To pleasant surprise, we've got 2 lovely ladies, college students I think, Ami & Sandra, who just found this listing on Google Search (they're not yet on Meetup) and decided to check out this poly stuff, after Ami just scoring 85% on an Internet Polyamory test!
    *All 8 of us, 4 guys & 4 gals, now having a great intimate discussion.
