What we're about

Milwaukee Poly is a group for all those wishing to explore, learn about, and better understand responsible non-monogamy in all its forms. Whether it is polyamory, polyfidelity, open marriage, swinging, solo-poly, multiple relationships, or just curiosity, this is space where you are welcome to speak honestly and be heard respectfully.

Our group is a resource and support structure for those who have questions, curiosities, or concerns regarding responsible, non-monogamous relationship(s) in a mainstream culture which is not typically openly supportive of anything other than monogamy. We offer two meet-ups sessions a month. Both are announced beforehand on Meetup, as well as Facebook and FetLife. We focus primarily on building healthy relationships. We are a sex-positive group and welcome discussions on sexual topics, but neither of these sessions is about finding casual sex or new partners.

The first half of the Milwaukee Poly Group is the discussion session which happens the 3rd Wednesday of each month. Each meeting focus on subjects and topics relevant to poly folks such as living arrangements, coming out, jealousy, or dating. All ages are welcome, but the subjects for discussion are generally geared for "younger" or "new" couples.

The second meeting is a purely social hang out and happens the 1st Friday of each month. Time to just meet and converse with your fellow non-monogamous Wisconsinites.

We encourage all those interested in discussing responsible non-monogamy to attend whichever session (or both) they feel is most applicable to their interests and stage of life.

The Ethical Slut Book Club Discussion (FREE)

The Tool Shed: An Erotic Boutique

Tool Shed Book Club Sunday, June 2, 5 pm June's book selection: The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton & Janet Hardy Book description: For 20 years The Ethical Slut has dispelled myths and showed curious readers how to maintain a successful polyamorous lifestyle through open communication, emotional honesty, and safer sex practices. The third edition of this timeless guide to communication and sex has been revised to include interviews with poly millennials (young people who have grown up without the prejudices their elders encountered regarding gender, orientation, sexuality, and relationships), tributes to poly pioneers, and new sidebars on topics such as asexuality, sex workers, and ways polys can connect and thrive. The authors also include new content addressing nontraditional relationships beyond the polyamorous paradigm of "more than two": couples who don't live together, couples who don't have sex with each other, nonparallel arrangements, couples with widely divergent sex styles, power disparities, and cross-orientation relationships, while utilizing nonbinary gender language and new terms that have come into common usage since the last edition. Event description: Each month the Tool Shed book club meets to discuss a book or other piece of writing that sheds light on sexuality today. Book club meetings are hosted by the Tool Shed staff, and we pick different readings based on group interests. Participants are welcome on a drop-in basis; a monthly commitment is not necessary. Please join us! Upcoming book club selections are available for 20% off the cover price at the Tool Shed. Please help support the Tool Shed by purchasing your book club books with us! This is a FREE event. Pre-registration is not necessary.
