The Effing Foundation for Sex-Positivity

The Effing Foundation for Sex-Positivity is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded by Kit Stubbs, Ph.D., of The Toymaker Project. Our mission is to reduce sexual shame and normalize conversations around human sexuality by fostering sex-positive art and education. As defined by Dr. Carol Queen, "Sex-positivity refers to a radical stance: accepting everyone’s sexual desires and choices, providing they’re consensually engaged in."

The Effing Foundation promotes sexuality education and artistic expression of sexuality through programs that are inclusive of women, people who are members of gender/(a)sexuality/relationship minorities, people of color, people of size, and people with disabilities. By increasing public knowledge about human sexuality and sex-positivity, we promote sexual literacy, health, and wellness worldwide.

Upcoming Events

teasecraft is a meetup group for sex- and kink-positive makers, hackers, and crafters.

Advisory Council

The Effing Foundation Advisory Council is a group of folks with a wide range of life experiences and expertise who offer feedback to our staff and Board of Directors, including helping us review grant proposals. We are grateful to the members of our inaugural Advisory Council (listed in alphabetical order):

  • Crista Anne ( / @pinkness)
    Crista Anne is a Professional Oversharer whose main focus centers around defying stigmas surrounding sexuality, mental illness and motherhood. With 20 years of sharing her life online, she uses memoirist blogging and 16 years working in sexuality to educate on a wide variety of topics. "Internet famous" for her #OrgasmQuest, she loves to spark conversations on topics that some find taboo. As a poly, queer, cis woman, her pronouns are she/her.

  • Mr.BLK (The Black Pomegranate / @BlkPomegranate)
    Mr.BLK holds a degree in Political Science and has a decade of experience as a dementia caregiver. This disparate background allows Mr.BLK to approach life and BDSM with a balance of clinical pragmatism and fastidious attention to care, competence and understanding. Mr.BLK blogs along with his partner Ms.Pomegranate on matters of sex positivity and kink. Mr.BLK has presented nationally on consent, negotiation, BDSM play techniques, rope bondage and rigging and scene safety locally in Maryland and nationally for Dark Odyssey, Catalyst Con, A Touch of Flavor and The Morpheous Bondage Extravaganza.
