Pool Party!!!

Hi All!

It's that time again!

Angel, Eddie, Daniele and Tom are hosting another pool party at their home in Brentwood (one block from Santa Monica)!

This group has grown greatly since I took over in 2007.  We have grown from 6 members to 810 members!

Polyamory is appealing to more and more people and we're seeing mainstream people joining our meetup every day.

Whether you're interested in this lifestyle or a poly old timer these parties are wonderful places to ask questions, share experiences and meet new people.  Whatever you're looking for you will find the most open-minded, open-hearted and non-judgemental people you'll meet anywhere.

We'll start the evening by dividing into smaller discussion groups where we will share experiences and explore topics brought up by YOU.  After discussion groups have wound down we'll party into the wee hours of the night.  The pool is 95 degrees and clothing optional.

Please DO NOT repost this event without first contacting me (click here).  If you do re-post it, please let me know how many will be coming from your posting.  Also, please do not post the Brentwood address for the general public to see.  It is a private home.

Fast Facts:

• Please try to arrive by 7PM sharp if you want to join a discussion group (don't stress out if you're late though).

• There is no charge for this event (free).

• Please bring a towel if you'd like to swim in the clothing optional 95 degree pool.

• This is not a swinging event so there will be no sex at this party and children will be present.

• Please bring what you'd like to drink (food will be provided).  If you'd like to bring food to share please go ahead but it's not expected. We have a number of members who are gluten free, dairy free and vegan, so dishes that are Gluten Free, dairy free and vegan are especially appreciated.

• Please park anywhere on the street (parking is unrestricted).

• We had 330+ warm, loving people at our last party (in February).

• We host these meetups about two times a year.

• Feel free to bring a guest(s) whether they are in this meetup or not.  An interest in polyamory qualifies anyone to attend.

That's it!  We hope to see old friends and make some new ones!

Big hug!

Angel, Eddie, Daniele and Tom

      PARTY RULE # 1: Always bribe the neighbors & leave a box of donuts out on the sidewalk to distract the cops!!!

    Thanks Krishna and Angel -- another great party. I had a wonderful time meeting people in the greater community.

    Too bad about the cops!

    Thank you Krishna, Angel, and family for opening up your home and wallet. Thank you everyone who facilitated a discussion group and to everyone who participated in the jealousy and communication challenges group that I lead. Thank you everyone for sharing your energy and love and helping make this event what it was, which for me was very empowering, fun, and nourishing.

    My third half-yearly pilgrimage to the great Poly Mecca. Please never stop these events. They are truly the highlight of the year. And thanks for taking in suggestions for having this event be even smoother than earlier ones. The way the groups were organized and sent to divide and conquer truly trumped the past events when all were jammed into the pool or living room. Thanks Krishna, Tom, Angel, and Eddie...and everyone for always bringing about the best open-minded event with the greatest folks!

    Everyone should note there are major lane closures on the 405 fwy starting this evening lasting through Monday morning. Also Sepulveda will be closed at a section of the pass. Check online to verify your planned route to the westside is available both going and coming back from the event tonight. Be safe!

      Thank You. I will send a message out to the members regarding this.

      Doesn't look like there are any planned closures for tonight but there are for tomorrow night. Here is a link to their website. http://www.metro.net/...­

    So....naked adults + children?? Are we keeping the children away from the swimming pool area? I can't imagine my 12 year old daughter being comfortable with seeing an adult male's genitals. I guess I'm prude, then? I mean, I don't have a problem with children seeing a painting of nudes, but, how comfortable are the adults going to be if they feel like they have to cover themselves just in case a little girl or boy walks by? Or maybe I'm the only person left on the planet that has concerns about this?

    November 1, 2013

    • Krishna

      To be clear if you are not comfortable with your children being around nudity. DO NOT BRING THEM TO THIS PARTY.

      3 · November 1, 2013

    • Deborah

      I have been bringing my children since they were about 9 years old. There has never been any issue. My children have, however, been raised in a clothing optional household and are comfortable around people who are nude. As Krishna stated, if you feel your children will be uncomfortable, then please do not force them to attend. I will be bringing both my kids who are now 15 and 18 years old.

    Would bottled water be helpful?

    November 1, 2013

    • Deborah

      Anything anyone wants to bring is welcome. We are expecting over 300 people at the event. If you have special dietary needs (I know a few are vegan and gluten free) please feel free to bring something you would like to share (and a sign to place with it noting the ingredients if you so choose). Water is always appreciated as well. :-)

    Really looking forward to our first meetup with this group..sounds perfect, close, and fun.

    I would imagine it's a child by child basis, depending on their comfort level and how much nakedness has been normed in their family. I lived at a very family friendly clothing optional resort once, and found that the visiting kids usually adjusted quickly because nudity wasn't being held in a sexual context, as it isn’t here at this party. And of course, optional means optional...I hope nobody would encourage a child of any age to do something they were hesitant about. I can't speak for other adults, but even in my pre-naturist days, I wouldn't feel uncomfortable around a pool unclothed just because a kid was present. Of course it is always up to your own judgment whether they should attend and/or be in the pool area. But swimming naked has been a normal thing since the swimming holes of yore, and I don't believe the adults should all have to bring swimsuits or give up on a natural non-sexual activity in a loving, open, poly atmosphere because children are there with us.

    Regrettably I am now going to be unable to attend.

    I was looking forward to the pool party; two people I know have spoken highly of past pool parties at this house.

    I wish everyone a wonderful time!

      Hi Dan. I'm new this group and am interested in attending the November 2 pool party. You said the last pool party "was completely awesome". Could you please be specific on what made it great so I can have an idea of whether the coming pool party might be what I have in mind? Any details would be appreciated. Thanks!

      The house is awesome (a mansion), Tom is an awesome host, the Poly discussion is interesting and you will not have one anywhere else like it. Lots of great like-minded people. Clothing optional pool is awesome too- but it's dark out there so it's not intimidating and still fairly private (did not go swimming last time but would like to). I've never been to a party that had something for everyone!

    Hello. Regarding the November 2 party at your house, I see that it will NOT be a sex-positive setting.

    But I also see that the pool will be clothing-optional. So I'm wondering whether the party will be cuddling-positive, kissing-positive, and generally touch-positive.

    I just want to be clear on the protocol. Please let me know, and thank you!
