A statement from the Board

The Board of Directors of the San Francisco Sex-Positive Democratic Club recently learned of multiple serious and credible allegations of consent violations made against one of the members of the Board. The Board has requested and received this Board member’s resignation, and has indefinitely suspended his membership in the Club, effective immediately. 

It is the explicit mission of the SF Sex-Positive Democratic Club to promote the ideals of sex positivity in local governance and discourse. Consent is the foundation of sex positivity. As such, we hold ourselves to the standard that enthusiastic consent is imperative for all sexual activity. We deeply regret that one of the leaders of our Club did not live up to this standard. In doing so, we failed in our commitment to uphold consent culture, and failed our membership and the broader sex-positive community. 

We take our responsibility to survivors seriously; if you have anything to report or disclose, or are in need of support, please reach out to us ([email protected]) to be connected with services.
