What we're about

We are a nonprofit that offers workshops, presentations and social spaces that are geared towards promoting sex positive values.

Sex Positive means to have a positive attitude regarding sex, gender, sexuality and human diversity. Simply put, we believe that consensual sexual activity is healthy, pleasurable, and a normal part of being a human being. We believe that all persons have the right to shame free education about gender, sex, and sexuality, and that sexuality is as diverse as the human race.

At our centre, located at 12031 76st NW, Edmonton, we offer workshops on a wide variety of topics, including the following:

• Sex Positive Culture • Consent • Sexual Assault in Canada; History of Law Reform • LGBTQIA2S+

• Sexual Health • Sexuality and Seniors • Sex Positive Art • Communication and Sex

• Ethical Non-Monogamy • Kink Aware Professionals • Alternative Lifestyles

We also offer a wide variety of events and social spaces from our sex positive fair to our youth program. if you have any questions feel free to contact us:
