Real World Poly Roots: GODDARD COLLEGE – THE REAL
HARRAD? Lead by Will “Taliesin” Jarvis.
Join noted author and social-change activist Will “Taliesin” Jarvis as he shares his memories of Goddard College, the inspiration, in part, for Robert Rimmer's Harrad Experiment. Goddard, the oldest experimental college in the US, took sexual and social education to a whole new level in the swinging 1960s and 70s. With classes ranging from nude massage to creating social change; with co-ed dorms and unisex bathrooms; with gay and lesbian activism, Goddard was at the forefront of the sexual revolution.
One of Will’s writing projects is a science fiction saga titled Erin Starfox. Imagine a society of poly empaths whose ambassadors’ travel in a massive starship that is home to over a hundred different races and species. How would such a society be affected by these unique conditions of polyamorous living and social interaction? Starfox is on the Web in illustrated stories, and e-books are a possibility in the near future.
Will, housemate in the Penfield house since 2003, has written extensively on the subject of polyamory, including the popular short story "Just like a Hollywood Movie" published in the book Plural Loves. Will was, and still is, a part of the ongoing sexual revolution and continues to promote the 'Make Love, Not War' philosophy in his writing, art and political activities.
Will spoke at his first Live the Dream meeting back in 1999. He became a member of our Group Household through an exercise on the advantages of Group Living at another meeting in 2002 and has been living in Penfield House since 2003.

    I passed on SCNA's nude at the museum event tonight so I could come. Alas, am helping my former wife move and we're still waiting for the bargain movers to show up for the big stuff. Looks like I'm not going to make it. :( Bummer.

    Will's experience as participant and writer from college days to present with polyamory and group living (including Findhorn-see Findhorn.org) make him a valuable resource for those who are new to this lifestyle as well as to us old timers. He has regularly defended ALL of our rights through the Free Speech Coalition--yearly trips to Sacramento for over a decade. He provided counseling on PAW (Protecting Adult Welfare) for those involved in the adult film industry. A man of many and varied experiences...

    My wife has cancer, so I most likely won't be attending any meet-ups for quite some time.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
