Speakers: ETHICAL NON-MONOGAMY with PANEL from PolyColumbus (February 25, 2016 @ 11:10 am)

polycolumbus logo 2015

Representatives from PolyColumbus will visit my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Townshend Hall, Room 247) on Tuesday, February 25 from from 11:10 am  to 12:30 pm.. PolyColumbus is a growing non-profit organization that provides a safe place for those who are purposefully non-monogamous to learn, share, and build community.

After a brief introduction by the panel, there will be an informative Question&Answer period for students.

If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously… YES, you may come. But it’s standing room only… you may need to grab a square of carpet. If you wish to bring a friend? Same thing applies. Make certain to tell them that chairs aren’t part of the bargain. Note: guests should not ask questions of speakers unless “paying” students have exhausted all of their inquiries.

This IS an extra credit opportunity for students in my 2367 class.

THEIR MISSION (From their website):

PolyColumbus empowers individuals that either self-identify as polyamorous, open, or ethically non-monogamous, or are exploring such possibilities. We build community to provide a safe and inclusive place to not only be ourselves, but also meet like-minded individuals from all backgrounds.

We advocate for the equal treatment of the ethically non-monogamous under law, and for broader societal acceptance of the same. We serve organizations with similar goals by documenting best practices and creating other resources for successfully running such an organization.

Finally, we educate each other, allied organizations, and the broader community on what it means to be ethically non-monogamous.

INSTRUCTOR NOTES:

*If you – or someone you know – is interested in this group, more information is available on their website (links above throughout) or here if you would prefer to copy and paste:http://www.polycolumbus.org

*For additional information, about purposeful non-monogamy,  I recommend a visit to Looking Through.Us

Speakers: Barak and Sheba (April 16, 2015 11:10 am – 12:30 pm)

Barak & Sheba will be speaking at my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Townshend Hall, Room 247) on Thursday, April 16, 2015 from 11:10 am to 12:30 pm. If you wish to bring a friend, make certain to tell them that chairs are not part of the bargain. There are just enough chairs for students enrolled in the class. All others should be prepared to grab a square of carpet.

This panel is offered to students along with readings:

Barak & Sheba are pansexual, polyamorous, married partners who reside in Columbus, Ohio; with some gigantic cats. They are Contributing Authors for Sexis Online Magazine and have written numerous short stories and essays on Polyamory, Kink, and Sacred Sexuality. Traveling around the country, they present classes for Kink, Leather, and Vanilla audiences. On the first Monday of each month, you can hear them talking about all forms of creative sexual expression on BS’ing with Barak & Sheba hosted by the Erotic Awakenings Podcast network. Together they are the founding members and owners of Adventures in Sexuality(AIS), a fun, frolicking, PanPolyBSDM/Kink group in Central Ohio. Through AIS they are Coalition members of the NCSF (National Coalition for Sexual Freedom) are active supporters of The Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio (SARNCO) and the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization (BRAVO). They currently promote Pansexual BDSM Educational Events in Central Ohio.

In their “Intro to Kink” presentation, they introduce the audience to the Who, What, Why, Where and How of Sensation, Roleplay, Fetish, and Bondage. You are hearing about Bondage, BDSM, Kinky Sex, and many of the taboo buzzwords thrown all over, since 50 shades came out. But what does it all mean? How do people “spice” up their relationship without going overboard? In this informational class, they discuss the general avenues that make up Kink, Alt Sex, or Creative sexuality. They offer some general guidelines, and provide a PG-13 rated “show and tell” that illustrates some key points.

Representatives from PolyColumbus visited on July 1st, 2014. They spoke to my smaller summer session of  HDFS 5440 on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Campbell Hall , Room 143).

The PolyColumbus group provides polyamorous, poly-curious, and poly-friendly individuals with an online forum for an exchange of ideas, friendship, support and community among area polyamorists. Discussions focus on polyamory and poly-related topics. PolyColumbus is not a swingers group, and the group is intended for adults 18 and over. Once a month, the group has a meeting in Columbus for those wishing to meet in real-time and in-person. PolyColumbus has recently transitioned to being a non-profit organization and I wholeheartedly support the work they do for those living purposeful, non-monogamous lives.

Speaker: Goddessy, Artist and Activist (October 24, 2012 @ 2:45 pm)

Goddessy will be visiting my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Orton Hall, Room 0110) on October 24, 2012, from 2:45-4:00 pm.

This is an extra credit opportunity for students enrolled in my other classes this semester who are not also enrolled in 5440 this semester. If you are not currently enrolled in my HDFS 5440 class and you’d like to attend, be prepared to sit on the floor, the windowsill, or to stand!

Long active in the arts & women’s community, Goddessy will share her story of empowerment and encourage students to challenge societal norms as well as internalized scripts of hate. She is a wickedly sensual, predominately dominant, polyamorous, queer femme; in an open relationship with her beautiful partner of 20 years and delicious lover of 3 years. Goddessy is a passionate visual, spoken word and performance artist~whether whispering into your ear or screaming across the stage, she delights in awakening the sacred sexuality deep inside each of us.

Goddessy’s bio (above) was borrowed, in part, from her bio on the 2012 Power Exchange Summit website.
