What we're about
Polyamory is the practice or desire to have more than one intimate relationship with the full knowledge and consent of all parties. It is one of many forms of ethical non-monogamy.
Sonoma Polyamory was formed in 2011 and is a social and support oriented group. We have a wonderfully diverse membership and have many types of gatherings, including community meetings, picnics, boardgame groups, and movie nights. As we grow we are open to new ideas for fun things to do together. Everyone is welcome to join, whether you are curious about polyamory, polyamorous, or identify as some other type of non-monogamy.
