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.

    EVENT DETAILS:

    Sexual Empowerment Circle is a discussion circle where you can anonymously ask questions about sex, love, and relationship. There are some questions that Google just can't answer. There are some questions that we might feel ashamed to ask our friends. There are some questions that we might want to discuss with a group in order to receive multiple perspectives. This is why we have created Sexual Empowerment Circle... so that you can finally ask these questions! So come prepared with a specific question or topic you would like to be discussed. When you arrive, you will be given a card to write your question on and, optionally, your name.

    We will be sitting in a circle on the floor so feel free to bring anything comfortable to sit on like a cushion or pillow or a floor chair. We will also have some cushions provided. In case of cat allergies, please be aware that there is a lovely cat who lives at the house and will be present during our talk.

    It's beach time again! This is the 3rd annual Black's Beach day for Sex Positive San Diego, co-hosted with Sex Positive LA.

    Come out for an hour, or hang with us the whole afternoon! Please bring everything you need to be comfortable and taken care of for a day at the beach, including food, water, and sunscreen, plus appropriate footwear for the steep hike down and back up. Bathing suits are optional.

    DIRECTIONS (please read carefully):

    Drive to the Torrey Pines Glider Port parking lot.

    To the left of the parking lot is a hiking trail down. It is steep in places and therefore can be slippery on the hike down. Please wear appropriate footwear. And be prepared physically for the hike back up.

    When you hit the beach, turn right (north) and walk along the ocean.

    We will be located about halfway between where you hit the beach and the volleyball courts. The area will be "decorated" with a sign and some bright colors, that will be visible when you're walking along the ocean.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!
