April 2015 Newsletter

Good news, everyone!

Today I'm proud to announce the name of my new nonprofit: The Effing Foundation for Sex-Positivity!

I'm also pleased to announce the Effing Foundation's first two board members:

  • By day, Tuttle is a Boston-based, CMU-trained software engineer; by night, they're a geeky kinkster of as-yet-undetermined gender. They plan to use their tech skills and connections to contribute to the Effing Foundation's sex-positive mission.
  • Michael Handler is a queer man living in San Francisco working in technology with a notable fondness for bears and bicycles, because he likes to have an uncommon profile in his peer group. He's been a sysadmin/ops person/devops/SRE for his entire career, and recently left Google after nine years to join the friendly llamas at Stripe. He tries to expect the unexpected, knows technology is secretly actually all about people, and would like to remind you that wherever you go, there you are.

I'm in the process of recruiting three more board members. Once we've got our board together, we can incorporate! Once we incorporate, we can find a payment processor -- that's the major missing piece we need in order to fulfill our mission.

Along with our new name, this month also marks the debut of our new logo! This beautiful piece of art was designed by the talented, sex-positive artist and activist Nicole Mazzeo of Pleasure Pie and the Sex Letters Project. If you can spare a couple of dollars, please support her Sex Positive Summer Tour!

Over the coming weeks, we'll be transitioning our website and social media channels from Passionate Produce to the Effing Foundation.  

Thank you again for all of your encouragement and support, and have an Effing fantastic month!

~Kit Stubbs, Ph.D.
