What we're about
A burgeoning, vibrant community for sex-positive Jews and our allies!
Although Jewish communities have made great strides in recent decades to welcome LGBTQI folks, some sexual identities and behaviors remain marginalized; many people still do not feel safe to be “out” in even the most progressive Jewish communities for identities and practices such as:
• BDSM, kink, and fetish
• Non-monogamy and polyamory
• Sex work
• Tantra, sacred sexuality, sex ritual, and sexual healing
We have had no easy way to identify and connect with one another. Many of us have remained silent about these critical aspects of our lives, fearing rejection and ostracization from the Jewish communities we love and call home.
As LGBTQ Jews have done, we’re spearheading practices to honor and affirm these fundamental yet marginalized aspects of our beings in a Jewish framework. We are excited to begin these conversations, host gatherings and rituals, and nurture what emerges.
OUR DRAFT MISSION STATEMENT: To provide a safe and welcoming sex-positive space for Jews and our allies to meet one another across the spectrums of gender, orientation, sexuality, body, ability, and culture; to create social, sexy, and educational Bay Area events that support both our Jewish and our sexual identities and practices; and to support the intersectional exploration of Jewish sex-positivity.
