We believe that everyone should be able to consensually explore and express their sexual identities (which include sexual orientations, gender identities, relationship styles, and sexual preferences) both publicly and privately, without outside pressure or coercion. The CSPH advocates for ongoing education and open discourse about all aspects of sex and sexuality, trying to decrease stigmas against expressing sexual pleasure and desire. We stress that no form of sexual activity should ever be considered “essential” or “positive” for everyone, recognizing that sex has the potential to be empowering and natural, but sexual experiences are not universally identical. While individuals define their own sexual preferences as they see fit, personal preferences should not affect the ability to celebrate alternate sexual choices between other consenting adults. The CSPH believes in providing a safe and positive space where people can comfortably learn about all aspects of sexuality, and use this knowledge to help them healthily navigate whatever sexual decisions they make for themselves.
