Community Resources

We have built a comprehensive database of resources for the sex-positive community, listing contact information and summaries for many different types of businesses and organizations including sex-positive retail businesses and venues as well as non-profit groups, emergency hotlines, STI testing information, and much more.

If there is something you need that you do not see in our database — or something you know of that you would like to add — please contact us or add it yourself to the database. We want this database to be a valuable asset to the community.

Please use the search tabs below to help you find the resource you are looking for.
