You thought about it, you fantasized about it, you've sought it out and now - you've taken the plunge! Welcome to the Open Lifestyles group.
We are a group of likeminded individuals who are building a safe community to explore and experience multiple different types of 'OPEN lifestyles' and what they have to offer. Our primary focus is Polyamory.
Polyamory is practiced by people who desire to be sexual and/or intimate with more than one partner in an honest and consensual manner. Polyamory revolves around sharing intimate connections with more than one person. The relationships are usually sexual in nature, though they can sometimes be emotionally intimate and sexually platonic as well. The level of connection may vary, but the emphasis is on the shared relationship.
Swinging is a non-monogamous practice of people, generally couples in committed relationships, who engage in 'casual sexual experiences' with others as a form of recreational social activity. Individuals and couples who 'swing' generally engage in these 'casual sexual experiences' without any 'intimate or emotional attachments' with the extra party/parties they involve within the sexual acts. Most often these acts are with strangers or a certain group of other like minded 'swingers' who understand the 'lack of emotional attachment' within the sexual act itself.
The swinging lifestyle is very different from the polyamory lifestyle where connection, intimacy, emotional attachment and relationship building are the fundamentals of the lifestyle, which then most often including the sexual act with mulit-partners as well.
Our Open Lifestyles group includes both the POLY and SWING lifestyles and those who wish to explore other "socially taboo" topics, such as fetish and kink etc... We are open to you being your individual self. All that are respectful of being open are welcome... Straight, gay, BI, tran, you name it... As long as we all are good and respectful to one another that is what counts :)
Respect, communication, honesty and openness are keys to the fabric of our community.
Within our community we strive to be free of judgement, to everyone. We are all learning and experience growth and 'open-ness' at different rates. We value this learning and growth within our community and we challenge each other within our boundaries of exploration. It is important to note that challenging boundaries is different than, pushing them and we do not want anyone to feel pushed further than what they are comfortable at any time. Learning how to express yourself; and what your boundaries are, learning what your needs and wants are, learning how to say both YES and NO when appropriate, and building and exploring yourself and your personal intimacy and sexuality with others is what we are about.
Please clearly understand that we are a friendship, relationship and support community/group. WE ARE NOT a dating or hook up site. Anyone, other than organizers contacting members prior to meeting them at events is strictly prohibited and will be dealt with by being removed from the community/group. As lead organizer I have ZERO tolerance for anyone using our community as a dating or hook up site and prompt removal of any individual behaving in such a manner will occur if the site is used and/or abused in this manner.
The primary goal for our community/group to be a safe and healthy place for all to reach within themselves and explore who they are and their highest good, through connecting with others in beautiful and intimate ways, all the while having a super fun time as we grow together in openness, sexuality, harmony and support :)
Thank you for being you :) and all you bring to us as a whole :) It is my pleasure to get to know you :)
