Bridging the gap between enjoyment of sex and safe sex

Tags:

Hi all,

I was wondering whether you know of any organisations that focus on women's sexual empowerment, linking it with taking control of safe sex?

Their themes could include encouraging women to educate themselves and carry their own condoms around for their own safety, tips for preserving their sexual right to choose and to protect themselves from harm, being more active around their sexual and reproductive health etc. in a more practical way.

It would be good if the entity had a more open and candid approach to discussions around sex to include masturbation and other such taboo subjects.

I say taboo because, for example, sex toys brought into my country could be confiscated by customs officials who believe that items such as those could "corrupt public morals."

Any suggestions? What about relevant courses?

I really appreciate your

I really appreciate your question, too, cos over all the fights about reproductive and sexual rights we forget to insist on as well that there is such a thing as the right to enjoyment, enjoy your body and feel it as a resource of inspiration.
I am a german pro choice activist. There are a lot of sex positive websites in German, but that wont help you. I am not sure about english ones. The only one coming to my head now are related to female pornography, like http://www.candidaroyalle.com/. its also commercial but inspiring
and here is a link to a European feminist porn Festival for women http://www.poryes.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=40&Ite...
