What is an Orientation?

After you have applied to the group you can attend any level 1 event that interests you. In order to become fully active in the group, we require you to have your application approved, attend an Orientation, and pay yearly member dues. Orientation is a full-evening of activity introduces our ideas and mission, explains how our group and events work, and includes some fun interactive games. These occur every other month at varying locations. After orientation, if your application has been approved and you have paid your yearly member dues, you may attend both L1 & L2 events.

Here's what a few folks have shared after attending an Orientation:

"Orientation was very clear, well-organized and put together. Everything about this event made me feel comfortable with not only my own boundaries, but recognizing and honoring others (especially how to communicate all of that). My heart swelled three sizes at the end when we all got to acknowledge our bravery for tonight."

"The leadership group is amazing!  Participants very interesting. Great job.  Took a difficult topic and nervous group and turned it into something amazing."

"The atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable. Lots of great information about asking consent. Fabulous job overall. Great info, great group of people. I look forward to attending future events."

Our events

SexPositive events are coded Level 1 through Level 3

Level One 

Friendly, flirtatious, and playful, but non-sensual. Activities might include workshops, discussion groups, classes, meet and greets, book clubs, eating, or dancing.

Level Two 

Sensual, increasingly flirtatious, but not sexual. Activities might include workshops or classes with nudity or live demonstrations, light touching, sexy dancing, or sensual massage. 


Requirements for attending L2 events: Accepted application, paid yearly member dues, attended an Orientation

Level Three 

Activities might include intimate touch, kissing, and playful exploration between individuals, couples, or groups.


Requirements for attending L3 events: Attended an advanced boundaries/consent workshop, attend (2) L2 events, attend (1) L2 touch event, leadership approval for L3 status, up to date membership dues paid


At events you are expected be respectful of the boundaries of others and of the event, to take care of yourself, and honor your boundaries and agreements. Beyond that, anything else is up to you. You will never be expected to do anything you don't want to, or to interact with anyone you don’t wish to. But we do expect you to contribute to the vibe through positive social interaction. Sex-positivity is about authentic, respectful, open communication, and being honest about your desires.

    EcoSexuality: When Nature Inspires the Arts of Love

    With the earth as our lover, we are never alone. Come learn the basics of EcoSexual love and explore your natural loving options with EcoSexual Portland Poet, Karen Hery, and her EcoSexy partner, Walker O'Rourke.

    Arrive in time for the opening circle at 5pm. Doors will be CLOSED promptly at 5:15. Please give yourself adequate time to show up, find parking and get settled in.

    Cost is - $10.00 per person

    5:00 - 6:30 pm  

    Bring a platter of food to share, the more sensual the better. We'll fill our plates and gather to watch a performance poetry show that energizes and inspires.

    After sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the show, join in a guided conversation about what is ecosexuality?

    And then enjoy a nature/touch experience that has been shared at the Center for Sex Positive Culture in Seattle (now Eros Foundation) and the Ecosexuality conference in Puerto Rico (pre hurricane Maria).

    We'll all learn more about . . .

    • Relaxing into our natural surroundings.
    • The pleasure in touching and being touched with natural objects.
    • What happens when we embrace the earth as a lover rather than our mother.

    6:30-6:50 pm - mix and mingle.

    6:50- 8:00 pm

    This is the time to sink down into the earth and with each other to more fully understand the sensuality of who we are.

    After more performance poetry - that will be a bit more titillating and revealing . . .

    Karen and Walker will lead several experiential activities to help deepen our understanding and go beyond words into a more visceral experience of eco-sensuality.

    If you have sensual objects made of natural materials that you are willing to share, add them to our sensory play table.

    Loose clothing, child-like curiosity and a wet spot for nature encouraged.


    Here's a taste of the poetry of Karen Hery:

    OPEN WIDER

    Some days it feels like the whole world is my lover;

    And Nature.... she's my best lover of all

    She comforts me with her breezes and steadies me against the trunks of her trees

    And you, all of you, you are my lovers too

    Whether we want to admit to that

    To each other or not

    Go ahead.... Look me fully in the eye and decide whether or not it's true

    Dance with me.

    Walk a bit down a path with me

    Hold me tenderly as we come and go and the I think we'll both know

    What lover really means
