Welcome to ASPECC!
We are the Alberta Sex Positive Education and Community Centre, also known as ASPECC.
ASPECC is a sex positive, non-profit organization that was founded by sex positive individuals with the goal of providing a Safe(r) space to support the public by offering shame free sex education resources with a focus on consent, sexual empowerment and sexual diversity.
We live in a society where sex is often shrouded in shame and mystery. A world where any expression of gender, sexuality, or style of relationship that does not match social expectations can result in stigmatization and discrimination. ASPECC seeks to provide a safe haven for folks stigmatized by their gender, sexuality or relationship style. We work hard to create a sex positive environment, one that promotes healthy attitudes about diversity and sexuality. We also offer opportunities to the general public for growth and learning as it pertains to sex positivity, with a wide variety of talks, presentations, workshops and events.
Sex positivity encourages open and safe communication, ethics, consent, empowerment of sexual minorities, and the resolution of various social problems that are associated with sexuality.
