The MPC was founded January 25, 2011 as an outgrowth of the venerable
MAPS group to
provide an actively social face to polyamory in Madison, Wisconsin, and the
surrounding area (generally Dane County). We host weekly coffees and informal parties now and
All who are interested in learning more about polyamory in a safe and
fun environment are welcome to join our public events.
We ask that you respect people's privacy and personal space. Make sure to ask
before you touch people you don't already know fairly well. Use common sense and
be polite to all.
You are welcome to join our
Yahoo! group and mailing list
to discuss polyamory and see what's coming up. There's also our
MPC is a very tolerant group. Whether you are gay, bisexual, straight, asexual, trans-gender, curious, kinky, non-monogamous, monogamous, liberal, conservative, or whatever; you should find a place which is friendly to you. Our only requirement is that you be open-minded and respectful.
Why the name "Mad Poly Collective"? More hands went up for this option
than any other one we discussed. *shrug* This has led some to alternatively
call us the "Snuggle Borg".
