What we're about
Polyrhythm is our community centered around support and creating as safe a space as possible for those who are exploring and practicing compassionate communication, polyamory, and ethical non-monogamy in our lives. Membership is free, and some events have a $5 requested donation to covers costs for things like name tags and our Meetup account.
🎶 This is intended to be as safe a space as possible, and it's not a dating group. Let's keep posts and comments platonic. Do not send Facebook requests to members without asking them first. Posts about sex and relationships are welcome, but think before you post. We are sex-positive — not sex-focused.
🎶 Everyone is expected to be respectful and considerate of others, including their ethnicity, sex, gender expression, sexual orientation, relationship type, socioeconomic background, religion, political affiliation, nationality, body type, age, size, and ability.
🎶 Physical or verbal abuse and any other form of harassment or bullying is simply not tolerated. Anyone who's unable to meet these expectations will be removed from the group. If you have reason to believe a member is in violation of this policy, please talk with any of the admins.
🎶 Please only invite people who you actually know, trust, and can vouch for! If a member is removed or asked to leave, the person who invited them may be asked to leave, as well.
🎶 We are a confidentiality- and consent-centered community. Don't talk about others unless you have explicit consent from them to do so. Ask before touching (even with hugs!) at our events. If you have any questions about consent, ask. There are many resources available.
🎶 Posts are only lightly moderated because you are all adults, and we trust you. Please keep in mind all the admins are volunteers who have limited time.
🎶 If your post contains content that may potentially trigger someone (e.g. rape, abuse, violence, etc.), state a clear trigger warning at the beginning of your post.
🎶 If you have an issue with another member of the group, please work it out directly with them in private or reach out to an admin. This is a place for positivity and community and not personal attacks.
🎶 Sharing links to other events relevant to our interests is encouraged! Only an admin may create events, though, unless permission is given in advance. To invite group members to an event, share the link to that event in a new discussion.
🎶 Members are not permitted to "block" the admins. Blocking others is often necessary for creating healthy boundaries, but for this group to have positive, meaningful conversations, everyone must must be able to see and optionally respond to one other's posts and comments.
