Hello, Sexuality Educators & Activists!
We really appreciate the effort you put into creating a more sexually accepting world. In order to support you in this endeavor, we've created this resource page where you can find helpful tools. Enjoy!

Sexuality Discussion Outlines & Tips
Part of what we do at Pleasure Pie is create meaningful discussions about sexuality. And we want to help you create meaningful sex positive discussions too! Feel free to use our pre-made discussion outlines to guide your sexuality discussions (we appreciate it if you give us credit, thanks!), or use them as a starting point to come up with your own discussion outlines.
Free Sexuality Graphics
Looking for graphics to use in your flyers, social media posts, event pages, etc.? We generally make a new graphic for each of our events, and you are welcome to use them in your event promotion (or however else you want to use them). We just ask that you give us a shout out when using our stuff. Thanks!
Sexuality Observances Calendar
Sometimes when creating events (or discussions, workshops, articles, publications, etc.), it is nice to plan them around social justice related holidays and other annual observances. We've compiled a list of relevant observances that you can tie your creations into, or use as inspiration for what to create next.

List of suggested Boston venues to host events at
Includes accessibility info, cost, availability of gender neutral bathrooms, etc. We especially recommend: Makeshift Boston, the Somerville Armory cafe, and the Democracy Center.
Things to consider when choosing a venue: Is it wheelchair accessible? Is it near public transportation? Is it in a predominately white neighborhood / How easy is it for people who are coming from predominately Black/Brown neighborhoods to get to it? If it has a rental fee, will you be able to have flexible ticket pricing options for people who can't (or struggle to) afford to buy a ticket?

Where to Print Stuff
Bestvaluecopy.com has much cheaper rates than most local print shops, like Staples, FedEx, or independent print shops. Copies are 2.5 cents a page for black and white and 9 cents for color, with no minimum quantity. You do have to pay shipping for orders under a certain amount, but it's often still cheaper than printing in person.
If you know any college students or employees, they might have unlimited free printing at their college.
Making pins? Wackybuttons.com lets you order pins in any quantity with as many designs as you want, and it's pretty inexpensive.
