All about Membership at the Center
New Member Orientations are held Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Please see the calendar for exact details.
New Member Orientation
Anyone interested in joining the Center attends a free orientation called Intro to Sex Positive Culture, and then may join as a Friend. Our Intro is a great way to get a better idea of who we are and how we work, ask us questions, and tour the space. There is no obligation to join. All You Can Eat cards are available for new members.
If you would like to see the space and talk to members before attending an orientation, our free Drop-In Tuesday Social is a great weekly event to visit. Also, any event that does not specify "members and their guests only" and just says "18+" is open to the public.
Foundation events like workshops and discussion groups are open to anyone 18+. In addition, there are lots of free meet and greet opportunities you might consider attending.
Intro to Sex Positive Culture
The Intro to Sex Positive Culture is a mandatory orientation that all potential members must attend before joining, and is designed to introduce the broad range of experiences available at the Center for Sex Positive Culture. The orientation provides attendees with a history of sex positive culture in Seattle, and reviews some of the expectations and etiquette expected at our events. Orientations also include a question-and-answer period so that attendees can get any additional information.
The staff usually begins new membership paperwork during orientation. After orientation ends, attendees pay for the membership of their choice and become new members. The costs and benefits of our various levels of membership are outlined below. We also have an exciting deal for new members -- the All You Can Eat Card
If you are undecided about joining, ask the staff to wait until the end of orientation to fill out the paperwork. There is no obligation to join.
Please note: we ask for your email address when you join the Center because it's important for us to stay in touch with you. Yahoo bounces a lot of our emails, particularly our newsletter, so if you have an alternate account (especially gmail), please use that one. As always, privacy is of the utmost importance -- we do not share your email address.
Orientations are generally held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. If these times don't work for you, please write us to arrange a special orientation. Please check our schedule to verify dates, as orientations are changed or canceled from time to time.
The next available date can be found on the calendar.
*** Please note, orientations are restricted to people with picture ID showing that they are over 18 years old. We accept Visa/MC and Visa/MC debit cards and cash and money orders. No checks please.

Renewing Your Membership:
Near the end of your membership, our computer system will alert the cashiers that your membership is about to expire. You can renew your membership at any regular CSPC event. Once your membership expires, you will get 4 reminders to renew your membership without penalty. Renewing your membership allows you to retain all of your membership privileges. After 4 reminders, you will be required to pay guest attendance rates (usually $10 more than members). After 2 years, you will be asked to attend a New Member Orientation to be brought up to date on any rules or guidelines that may have changed.
