Our Mission

Donate now to help 14 fabulous sex-positive projects come to life!

2018 Fundraising Progress

The Effing Foundation for Sex-Positivity is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded by Dr. Kit Stubbs of The Toymaker Project. Our mission is to reduce sexual shame and normalize conversations around human sexuality by fostering sex-positive art and education. 

"Sex-positivity refers to a radical stance: accepting everyone’s sexual desires and choices, providing they’re consensually engaged in." - Dr. Carol Queen

By increasing public knowledge about human sexuality and sex-positivity, we promote sexual literacy, health, and wellness worldwide.

The Effing Foundation promotes sexuality education and artistic expression of sexuality through programs that are inclusive of women (cisgender and transgender), people who are members of gender/(a)sexuality/relationship minorities, people of color, people of size, neurodiverse people, and/or people with disabilities (mental illness, chronic illness, and/or other physical disabilities).

It's time for our annual fundraiser!

Last year, together we raised $40,000 for eight pilot grants. In the past year, those projects have reached over 1,000 people in person (as participants, artists/models, and audience members) and approximately 57,000 people through the web (via social media, podcast downloads, and more.) This year, we're going even bigger!

We have 14 amazing grant candidates from across the US doing sex-positive projects on a wide range of topics, from teaching porn literacy to crafting erotic LARPs to providing support to survivors of sexual assault via podcast. With your help we'll raise $75,000 to make these 14 grants and keep the Foundation moving forward. Please make your contribution today to support these fabulous sex-positive artists and educators.
