The sex-positive content-creation retreat
May 15, 2019 @ 17:00 - May 19, 2019 @ 23:00 UTC+0€120
We are happy to announce our first “Sex-positive Content retreat” to work together to generate and share content (open source) on sex-positive activities, communities, workshops, parties…
A writing retreat for sex-positive facilitator & multiplicator who want to share their knowledge with the rest of the world and create one of the first building blocks in our growing community.
Join us and:
– Spend 4 days with similarly minded individuals writing down your knowledge about workshops, games, ice-breakers, community organising, event facilitation, conflict resolution. Anything and everything that could be relevant to the sex-positive community and that you are willing to share with the world (freely).
– Spend 4 nights chilling, cuddling, eating or playing with those same individuals. Maybe you want to try out some of your newly acquired knowledge? 😉
Following the ideas discussed in the first sex-positive incubators in Vienna and Berlin we want to go ahead and turn one of the projects discussed there into reality. The project purports to create an online freely accessible repository of knowledge (Wiki or similar) filled with the knowledge of the people that have been active in organising events, workshops, communities, parties for years around Europe and the world. We want all material to be created and shared according to one of the Creative Commons licenses; exactly which license to choose will be discussed further among participants although Attribution is important to us.
We believe in free and open source material and want to provide high-quality and up-to-date information on sex-positivity and related topics to let our communities grow in safe & consensual spaces.
Target groups: Sex-positive…
– …professional and amateur workshop organisers
– …event organisers
– …community organisers and facilitators
– …creators of content (bloggers, YouTubers, authors, speakers)
– …doctors, therapists, sexworkers & bodyworkers
On top of direct expertise in the sex-positive field, we are also looking for allies with expertise in IT, law, sexual health and text revisors.
We would like to make clear that this is not a “Play vacation”, there will probably be moments of play but the main purpose of this event is content creation. If you do not have content to share,or can’t help in other ways, we do not encourage you to apply.
PAL System: Everyone attending the event needs to be vouched for by at least two other known members of the community. We want to ensure that people participating are both truly interested and capable of sharing their knowledge and that they operate safely and consensually in a sex-positive environment.

**Who is behind this initiative?**
The “Sex-positive Community Europe” is a growing community (soon to be established as a not-for-profit association based in Europe) with the goal to build a network of engaged Facilitators & Activists to work together on shared goals and have a voice. Among them: to provide interested individuals in Europe with an accessible portal to information about sex-positivity; safer sex; and an overview of relevant events. We are moderating the Facebook group Sex-positive community Europe and organizing network events in Europe.
We are happy if you want to invite your professional circles !
