What is an Orientation?

After you have joined 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 attend an Orientation. This full-evening of activity introduces our ideas and mission, explains how our group and events work, and includes some fun interactive games. These occur on the third Sunday of every month. After orientation, if you are invited into the group, you may attend other 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, 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. 

Level Three 

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

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.

    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.
