Oz Poly News

"Polyamorous Speed Dating”

    This is an event that came to the attention of one of the patrons of our site, Carl Turney. It was advertised at a Melbourne Sex Geeks event, but is not strictly speaking a sex geeks gig, so everybody is welcome.

Bookings for the over forty event on the 17th of April are filling up fast, so be quick.

    We at PolyOz do not subscribe to the view that people should have their sex lives and relationships dictated to by any professional, or any professional body. If we felt that, there would be no reason for us to exist. In any case, Australians are a free and individualistic bunch; most of them are going to run their lives as they please, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Having said that, it is a fact that intelligent, strong minded, and switched on people can be preyed upon by all sorts of characters with malicious intent. People like this can really screw you up, and it might take years for a nasty scenario to play itself out in your life and the lives of your friends. As a matter of fact, a serious psychopath who ravaged several different Melbourne groups, has only been released from jail in the last couple of years.

    So this is a very good reason to have an experienced therapist involved in the introduction process. Communication is not the be all and end all, but it can be a great tool to get your bearings in a chaotic world.

    If you are a country person, don’t think that Melbourne is not relevant to country living. It might be the best starting point if you want to do something different where you live. Is this event your cup of tea?

This event is inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations and backgrounds. This edition is for people over 40 or for people who date people over 40.

If this is not you, please invite any friends you think might be interested. This over 40s edition was asked for by quite a few people and so we are super excited to be running this event by special request!

WHAT IF I'M STRAIGHT/GAY/BISEXUAL/HETEROSEXUAL/ASEXUAL/OLD/YOUNG/MARRIED/SINGLE/ETC?

As with any dating event, there will be people in the room you are attracted to, and people you won’t. If you’re paired with someone who is not who you consider to be your type, we encourage you to… - be open-minded, and see what it feels like to let go of your preconceptions.

  • use the experience as a chance to make a new friend or connection.
  • use the experience to learn something about yourself and the way you relate to different people.
  • No connection with another human being is ever wasted.

***

 

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE NIGHT?

You’ll participate in a series of facilitated group activities and paired speed-dates in such a way that you will interact with everyone in the room. The activities will be facilitated and guided, some silent and some spoken, and designed to help you connect in a real and authentic way in a short period of time. The activities will be fun, playful, outside-the-box connections that will challenge you, make you laugh, and get you to explore parts of yourself that often don’t get expression in day to day life.

You may be asked to:

  • act, role-play, or do some improv with your partner.
  • participate in some tantric eye-gazing or breathwork.
  • work together to solve a puzzle, learn something, or create something.
  • answer questions about your dreams, fears, or desires.

 

This will not be job interview material, and there will be no boring questions about what you do, where you hope to find yourself in 5 years, or your marital expectations. There will be some light refreshments provided and some time at the end to socialise

 

At the end of the night you will have a chance to tick the names of people you would like to explore further connection with. If you choose someone who chooses you, we’ll be in touch! Your answers are completely confidential, and if you tick someone that doesn’t tick you, they will never know about it. Your details will never be given to someone you didn’t tick.
