February 13th, 2015 – 6pm
Just in time for Valentine’s Day – Why not try something a bit different? Come read about the theory and practice behind what people are calling “polyamory.”
“Polyamory (from Greek πολύ [poly], meaning ‘many’ or ‘several’, and Latin amor, ‘love’) is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. It is distinct from both swinging (which emphasizes sex with others as merely recreational) and may or may not include polysexuality (attraction towards multiple genders and/or sexes).”
Readings available for free at http://www.oldcapitolbooks.com
Angi Becker Stevens. “Polyamorous Relationships are about More than Just Couples”.
And if you feel like you just can’t get enough polyamory literature, you can read The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy.
This series of seminar sessions has been put together to encourage the exchange of ideas, experiences, and knowledge surrounding a particular topic or theme. We want to create a place where people can meet with other people from Monterey Bay communities to talk about current events and discuss new philosophies and ways of thinking critically about society. Though these seminars have been designed for non-students, and for those of us who have had little or no college experience, everyone is invited to participate. We believe that everyone can have something to offer to the seminars as we move through current debates in politics and different political and social theories.
