Host a Sex & Society Discussion Group
In most of the world, people are so uncomfortable talking about sex simply having discussions about this important subject is progress. A wonderful way to earn a small income and to be part of a practical and proactive conversation about sex and society is to host discussion groups.
A Sex Positive Discussion Group is based on a simple premise; many intelligent people want to talk about sex in a comfortable, safe setting. Especially 'big picture' issues in how sex affects society.
To talk about sexuality in an intellectual way allows people a safe way to communicate that is not too personal or vulnerable.
The opportunity to talk about sex in society in a manner that is respectful yet open is very rare in most cultures. As a result, people are willing to pay a small fee for that opportunity to make connections between the political and personal.
1) Benefits of Being a Sex & Society Discussion Group Host
- You will make a tiny income! However, the benefits of being a Sex to Save the World Discussion Host are much more than monetary.
- Personal Friendships. Aside from stimulating open and practical discussions about sex and society, they can be very personal. For example, as a host, you can develop wonderful friendships with regular participants.
- You may meet potential investors or partners for a potential EcoSex Entrepreneur project. You might find the sapiosexual love of your life. As long as Consent Culture guidelines are followed, adults meeting and talking intellectually about is a great way to socialize!
2) Create a Safe Container for a Polite Free Speech Discussion Group!
"In order to be able to think you have to risk being offensive."
Jordan B. Peterson - An Anecdote to Life
We live in a politically correct world that sometimes stifles honest conversation. And sex is one of the most politically incorrect subjects there is! Any open discussion about sex and society will often bring up issues of race, culture, gender, orientation and other ‘trigger word’ issues.
We try to create a safe container for participants to feel comfortable enough to communicate freely with differing political views, religious beliefs, and sexual orientations.
Sex & Society Discussion Group Guidelines
They can be customized for your own group.
- Personal Politeness: Anyone is free to say what makes them feel personally uncomfortable. As a polite community of individuals, we adopt a policy of personal politeness and respect for individual feelings.
- Personal Responsibility: While a word or expression is offensive to one person that does not mean it is offensive to others of the same demographic. People can speak from their personal experience. However, it is important to make the distinction between taking personal offense and taking offense on behalf of a group. Nobody is a ‘spokesperson’ for their demographic.
Free Speech & Negative Intent
- Criticism. If a person criticizes some aspect of another’s demographic it can be deemed as prejudiced but is not necessarily so.
- Ignorance. If a person makes a comment that shows complete ignorance of another’s demographic it can be deemed as prejudiced but is not necessarily so.
- Humor. If a person makes a joke at the expense of another’s demographic it can be deemed as prejudiced but is not necessarily so.
An important key that defines prejudice is a negative intent. As we get to know people we often can ascertain their intent when they make comments that are critical, joking or show ignorance of a demographic group.
We have heard often from people, the relief they feel when they know they can communicate freely to me without being attacked as prejudiced if they say a ‘trigger’ word.
The subtle distinctions between politeness, personal responsibility, and free speech allow a diverse group of participants to feel comfortable expressing themselves and sharing their views. Honest meaningful conversations can challenge our beliefs. In many cases, personal growth and development emerge from these free-flowing uncensored conversations.
4) The way it is: Let’s talk about the problem!
We offer content and topic ideas from our Sex to Save the World Public Section for free. However, for more extensive ideas, reading material and research for discussion topics is in the Member's area. Or you can write your own discussion topic! The idea is that you are describing a problem with sex and some aspect of society that would be of interest to people.
Any entrepreneur ideas generated by this discussion group are royalty-free for other group participants to use should they decide to turn one into reality! You are of course welcome to give a ‘shout out’ to the group if you succeed!
Discussion Group Benefits:
- Personal. The mind is the largest sexual organ. A sapiosexual is someone who is turned on by intelligence. Having 'big picture' conversations about sex is a great way to come to terms with one's own personal sexuality. It is personal but not too personal!
- Social. Hosting or being a part of a Sex to Save the World discussion group is also a wonderful way to talk and socialize about sex in a fun, non-threatening way.
- Political. Politics can be very personal especially when it comes to laws on sex. Many cultures in the world threaten sexual freedom in the name of 'morality'. As the LGBTQ movement has shown, sex is a political issue. Rights must be fought for. With education about sexuality, people can engage politically or support sex-positive candidates.
- EcoSex Entrepreneur! Sex is one of the great last untapped areas for social entrepreneur capitalism. As an eco-sex entrepreneur, politician or activist, a person can address sexual dysfunction in human behavior. We provide research and resources for those who wish to be an EcoSex Entrepreneur!
