The Pleasure Project is an international education and advocacy organization working to eroticize safer sex, and to develop the evidence base for a sex-positive and pleasure-based approach to sexual health and rights. The Pleasure Project provides training and consultancy for sexual health professionals and sexuality educators and others who want to take a more sex-positive and pleasure-based approach to their work.
The Pleasure Project has contributed to evidence generation on pleasure, safer sex and agency through their research and publications, including an evidence review recently conducted with WHO which has shown that considering pleasure in sexual health and sex education significantly increases condom use, knowledge and safer sex. Pleasure based sexual health literally saves lives.
