The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health is designed to provide adults with a safe, physical space to learn about sexual pleasure, health, and advocacy issues.
The CSPH offers the following:
- One-on-one sexuality consultation services with Ms. Andelloux (by appointment only)
- Drop-in hours
- One of the largest sexual resources and media libraries on the East Coast
- Access to the cutting edge sexual health journals
- Local zines
- Sex educational curriculum and learning tools
- Genital teaching models
- Personalized sex toy and sexual aids guidance, so you can make the best selection for your satisfaction
We are located in historic downtown Pawtucket, inside The Grant Building. Inside the CSPH you will find the warmth of a living room from the 1950s, texts from today’s and yesteryear’s great sexual thinkers, sex toys, and the largest handmade vulva doorframe in America.
Have a cup of tea and spend the afternoon devouring a book you couldn’t find in Borders or Barnes and Noble. Read throught he latest sexual studies from the Journal of Sexual Medicine and then pick up the current copy of Adult Video News (we like to cover all aspects of sexuality). Watch a documentary on anatomy, gender expression, sexual challenges and treatments, or reproductive rights. Ogle the antique vibrator display (with one dating back from 1897!) and then admire our shelves that showcase today’s sex toy design and craftmanship. We can help you navigate your way through the big wide world of pleasure objects that are safe and body friendly and point you in the direction of socially-conscious companies or organizations that carry or create the educational resources, sexual aids or curricula we feature.
Online, we choose to put forth current news articles, upcoming conferences, relevant sexual studies, and art to keep you educated, entertained, and aware. Sometimes we will just link to the original article, while other times we will offer an explanation or start a discussion.
