SEX + CITY: Sex-Positive Week at Sac City seeks to promote healthy concepts about topics related to human sexuality through a stigma-free educational environment. Topics will include behavior, sex education, consent, relationships, gender issues, body image, safe sex, pornography, the sex-positive social movement, socio-religious influences and control, and stereotypes in mainstream media. Through displays, visual presentations, panel discussions and guest speakers, this event endeavors to educate and illuminate both the City College and Los Rios community, other area college and university students, and the general public.

What is Sex-Positivity?
Sex-Positivity is a social movement that promotes and embraces open sexuality with few limits beyond an emphasis on safe sex and the importance of informed consent. Sex positivity is “an attitude towards human sexuality that regards all consensual sexual activities as fundamentally healthy and pleasurable, and encourages sexual pleasure and experimentation. The sex-positive movement is a social and philosophical movement that advocates these attitudes. The sex-positive movement advocates sex education and safer sex as part of its campaign.” The movement generally makes no moral distinctions among types of sexual activities, regarding these choices as matters of personal preference.
