The Ohio Valley Polyamory Network welcomes those interested in loving relationships, marriages & sexuality that go beyond the traditional couple. In time, with enough people we hope to give birth to a variety of discussion/support groups on polyamory. In these groups we can share our experiences and questions, our joys and hurts, our wisdom and confusions, all in a safe environment. We intend that all who participate feel safe from judgment, sexual pursuit, or pressure to convert to any dogma. Our focus is on creating and linking a community of people in the area who are living, seeking, or open to learning about non-monogamous lifestyles.
Our Vision is to network a community where we can share our own personal experiences with one another. We like the idea of groups spontaneously forming from the creativity and intention of those in the community within the limits of our ethical guidelines.
Here are examples other networks, such as the Chesapeake Poly Network, have created:
poly support groups
poly/pagan interest groups
monthly potluck socials
new member orientations
bi support group
safer sex discussion meetings
What is your Vision?
What vision might you have for a poly network in this region? What would you like to see in a group? What events would you like to participate in? What functions would you like this site to serve? We'll list what you have to offer on our Sharing page.
If you are interested in honesty, in communication, in stepping outside the conditions which limit our inherent creativity in loving relationships, we warmly welcome you.
Whether you are just curious, have recently entered into a multi-partnered relationship or have been living a polyamorous lifestyle for years, we invite you to write us a letter introducing yourself and your interests. Please include "OVPN" in the subject heading.
