The Center for Sex Positive Culture is a 501c7 nonprofit, meaning we exist solely to serve our members. Membership is open to all like minded individuals, and grants you access to all events and services.
The Center for Sex Positive Culture creates spaces to celebrate, develop, and explore sexuality and sensuality among a diverse, supportive community.
WHAT WE DO
The Center for Sex Positive Culture encourages the exploration and celebration of the many facets of human sexuality. Through an encompassing variety of events, created by and for its membership, the CSPC seeks to educate, to facilitate consensual open sexual expression and dialog, and to provide a venue for fellowship and community. As proponents of sex positive culture, we believe that the appropriate uses of sex extend beyond reproduction. They include creating personal pleasure, bonding interpersonal relationships, promoting spiritual growth, and enhancing emotional and physical health. In a sex positive world, everyone has the freedom and resources to pursue a fulfilling and empowering sex life.

Activating your reciprocal membership
Reciprocal members visiting the CSPC
Members of reciprocal organizations complete the online application.
The applicants will automatically receive an email requesting proof of membership.
Once the member submits the proof via email, we will give them a membership entitled ‘Provisional”. This membership will allow them to register for a New Member Orientation using a coupon code that gives them a $10 discount (the cost of a 2-month membership)
After they have attended an orientation, we will remove the Provisional membership and give them a Reciprocal membership with an expiration date equal to the expiration on the reciprocal organization membership provided. This will allow them to register for all our events like any other member.
