CL won't let us put a website on here. So, write me back here, and I will send you a letter to help you through the selective application process.
Our members plan and host events centered around understanding and exploring all aspects of human sexuality, relationship styles, kink, gender and orientation. We are monogamous, nonmonogamous (open/poly), heteros, gays, trans, bi's, fence sitters (this list is too long for this ad), lovers of every age and all sexuality identifications. If this speaks to you, seek out SexPositive Portland/World. We are 2200 plus in Portland, and another 4000 in 14 other cities world wide.
Please don't be offended if your application isn't accepted. We are a select gender balanced group and the masses don't work well for safety.
All that being said we encourage everyone to have the opportunity to have their application accepted or denied. If you are the person that gets offended easily when you get rejected, that speaks loudly to how this is not a good fit for you. We have whole classes on how to accept rejection regularly. It builds respect for other peoples boundaries and helps us to Love in a deeper way.
What is Sex Positivity?
Sex positivity is a social movement and philosophy which regards all consensual expressions of sexuality as healthy, encourages sexual pleasure and experimentation, places an emphasis on informed consent and advocates sex education and risk-aware sex. Sex-positivity makes no moral distinctions among types of sexual expression, orientation or identification, regarding these choices as matters of personal preference and not on what "most people" in a society thinks. Sex is natural, healthy and just all around good for you. To oppress sex is a societal norm, not a natural norm.
What does our group do?
SexPositive Portand (SP World) is a real community of open-minded, alive, and awake people (members and volunteers). We provide a chance to explore, learn, and grow in a safe, welcoming, and consensual environment. We believe that sexual energy is a powerful tool for transformation, healing, solidifying relationships, and building community, and we develop that energy by sharing ideas and experiences in real world and virtual settings.
Our real world events include classes, discussion groups, workshops, socials, parties, festivals, and more. They range from member hosted events (in homes, parks, restaurants, etc.), outings together where we might go watch burlesque shows, sex-positive theater, Hump Fest, or visit a dungeon or club together, to signature events like our snuggles, couple/triads massages, and parties including our Sizzle or Blaze events that are created by SexPositive World and led by its core volunteers. We strive to keep events low cost (enough to cover expenses) and free when possible, but we sometimes do fundraisers, which cost a little more.
Events are coded Level 1 through 4.
Level 1 is Social/Educational (workshops, classes, outings to wine bars, burlesque shows, plays, etc.)
Level 2 is Sensual (snuggle parties, group massage, sensation play: touch that is nurturing and affectionate)
Level 3 is Sexy (more arousing, teasing, exciting!)
Level 4 is Sexual (please note: we do not list these events on our MeetUp page due to their rules!)
How Do I participate at Events?
At events you are expected to 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 as an active participant through positive social interaction. Sex-positivity is about authentic, respectful, open communication, and being honest about your desires and feelings.
We require applicants to fill out an application (your profile), which is reviewed by real live people so please answer the questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. We actually read your answers carefully and may decline applications based on inadequate answers. Your answers will be visible only to members of the group. Couples must complete separate profiles and applications. Please reference each other. Because we are a real community; we request a recognizable picture of you on your profile. We have about 6 times as many men applying so they may be rejected or placed on the waitlist if you and a woman don't reference each other. So men, go ask your neighbor, co-worker, s.o. or any woman you know to sign up with u. If you can't find one please don't let that stop you from applying if you know you have a lot to offer the group.
We look forward to seeing you at an event soon!
Love, Gabriella, Aaron 2Shuze Rider the SPP/W team.
