The Oneida community was in some ways the first hippy free-love commune.
The founder of the Oneida community was John Humphrey Noyes, who was born in Brattleboro, Vermont, in 1811.

Only Noyes himself would not go through this unless he decided to, because he felt that a group should not criticize their leader.

 John Humphrey Noyes and the Oneida Perfectionists
Complex marriage was essential to Noyes, because he felt that it moved the community beyond the traditionally divisive commitments to one partner or the family, and rais ed this love and loyalty inherent in those commitments to the level of the community, just as he envisioned it in Heaven.
The Oneida Perfectionists had a very different vision of utopian life than the Shakers and the Puritans, and yet their communities did share structural and ideological similarities.
Finally, John Humphrey Noyes and the Oneida Perfectionists were responding, not just to the call of the West and the promise it held out, as Turner might have us believe, but just as Winthrop and the Puritans, to changing social conditions that undermined their understanding of themselves and their place in their society.
