Bottom line:
WE THRIVE ON DIVERSITY
That said, we do have some rules to make Given Consent Poly Speed Dating the most gratifying experience possible, so please do us a solid and read everything below:
Arrive at events clean, sober, and free of strong odors either natural or enhanced.
Stay home and join us next time if you are ill or not fully recovered from illness.
Poly Speed Dating events may require gender balancing—so, if you identify as a single man attending without a partner, getting referred by a member will greatly increase your chances of getting into the event.
If registering as a duo, ensure that each of you fills out a separate Poly Speed Dating form.

WHY SPEED DATING?
Born right here in Los Angeles in 1998, "speed dating" originally solved a need not at all unlike ours today in 2020. Rabbi Yaacov Deyo wanted a less stale, more invigorating way to connect Jewish singles than the disappointing synagogue socials he'd been hosting. Prest-O Change-O: Deyo and his students came up with speed dating, which gave their community a fun, consensual, transparent platform to meet (and eventually marry and produce lots of babies with) others who shared their beliefs and lifestyles.
It's a few years later, and the poly community may differ a bit from the Orthodox Jewish community, but the natural, human desire to feel connected to someone who wants what we want is ever-present.
It should be as easy as possible to find the love you need in your life, and that doesn't always happen safely, warmly, or honestly on Tinder or Grindr. Poly Speed Dating provides that welcoming, judgment-free space where we can just focus on getting—and giving—love and pleasure.
