Promoting healthy sexuality through sex-positive education and activism
Our mission is to promote healthy sexuality through sex-positive education and activism.
We know that everyone’s sexuality is uniquely shaped by all facets of identity and experience.
We seek to empower students to engage with these issues by providing inclusive programs, events, resources, and safe spaces for discussion.
We work to eliminate sexual shame and stigma so that young people can feel comfortable asking questions, sharing with their partners, talking to their health care providers, and participating in sex that makes them feel happy and fulfilled.
Sex Out Loud is funded and run by trained students. Using a peer-to-peer model allows our audience to feel comfortable asking us questions and discussing these issues in frank, honest language.
There is more to sex education than just pregnancy and STI/STD prevention! Sexual pleasure is an important part of sexuality that is often not discussed in traditional sex education. We acknowledge how pleasure affects sexual decision-making, condom application skills, relationships, and the epidemiology of STIs and pregnancy.
Consent is a clear, freely given, enthusiastic, and informed yes, not the absence of a no. We believe consent is a sexy part of communication and 100% mandatory for all sexual activities.
Inclusivity & Safe Spaces
We strive to present sexuality and sexual health information in a manner that is affirming and inclusive of all gender identities, gender expressions, experiences, sexual orientations, relationship types, bodies, sexual preferences, and all of the fluid spaces in between.
