Swingers' Messages

From: Sylwia

Dear All NY Polyamory Meetup Group Members,

I have been meaning to address the "swingers' " issue on the New York Polyamory Meetup Group site.

While I am personally not against swingers and accept that swingers may exist in the polyamory community; the two are not one and the same.

Many agree that swinging predominantly has to do with the sexual relationship between couples or individuals and couples.

However, if those of you who have read the New York Polyamory Meetup Group description will note that this group's goal at this time is to provided a low-key no pressure environment to socialize and to get to know other like-minded poly-folk, poly-curious, and poly-friendly people. Dating and sex are not the primary focus of the group, so please be respectful and do not solicit others or "hit on them" via email or post ads such as you would on a dating website. Do not post pictures that are sexually explicit as your primary picture for the group. I have already asked some individuals to change their primary picture on the group site. Some responded that they have changed them, some have not.

If anyone has any questions or concerns about this, please let me know. This is not an invitation for debates. If you want to swing, create a swingers' meetup. There is a place for everything.

In the meantime, the comfort of the New York Polyamory Meetup Group members to participate and get the most out of the group is at stake here.

Thank you for your understanding.
