For CSULB students:

Update: Apparently, the theme of the party has been changed. We can only hope that this means the nature of the party will change, as well. It is still very important that our campus community be a safe place. At least one victory was made in changing the name and theme of the party. Good job to WSSA for being at the front lines of this whole operation!

In a culture that promotes sexual ignorance, it becomes increasingly important to be sex positive. Being sex positive means encouraging and normalizing open sexuality, in all its forms, and being receptive to new ideas. The United States has spent over $1.5 billion on abstinence-only sex education in an effort to keep teens from having sex. What this has done, instead, is further perpetuate the sexual ignorance.

During Sex Positive Week, there will be panel-led discussions about the connections between sexuality, freedom, religion, the environment, health and politics. This will be an opportunity for students and sex positive professionals to have an open discussion free of judgment. Throughout the week, students will be able to submit questions for panel discussions anonymously, if they wish to do so.

For any progressive, sex positive individuals and organizations who would like to be involved in Sex Positive Week, please email us at theragzine@gmail.com
