Class: Orientation to SexPositive Portland & Sex Positivity

Here's where it all starts. This event is a great way to learn about sex-positivity, and SexPositive Portland. Whether you are curious, or a new member working to level up, this is a simple and welcoming learning opportunity that is fun to share with friends.

So, just what is sex positivity? And what/who is Sex Positive Portland? What is going on around here!? Come join us and find out about these questions and more. We encourage new members to attend; and we also encourage existing members to come and join in the fun, helping to build community.

Seriously, though, we cover SO much at this event, and we don't expect you to memorize it all. Please visit our website where you can check us out before attending, and browse through our events to get a sense of what we do. (Those who have applied for membership and been accepted can see all events; those who have not can see only events open to the public.)

Orientation is one of the required classes before attending Level 2 events. It's also a really fun way to get to know people, build community and create safer containers!

Here's what we'll cover

  • Welcome and Intros
  • A brief look at the history of the sex-positive movement
  • What SexPositive Portland is all about
  • Our core concepts of Care, Confidentiality, Communication, and Consent
  • How to be a great member
  • What you can look forward to on your SexPositive Portland journey
