Sexual Bill of Rights


Based on the belief that sexual rights are human rights...
  1. The freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy or desire.
  2. The right to sexual entertainment, freely available in the marketplace, including sexually explicit materials dealing with the full range of sexual behavior.
  3. The right not to be exposed to sexual material or behavior.
  4. The right to sexual self-determination.
  5. The right to seek out and engage in consensual sexual activity.
  6. The right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind, whatsoever, providing they do not involve non-consensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion or fraud.
  7. The right to be free of persecution, condemnation, discrimination, or societal intervention in private sexual behavior.
  8. The recognition by society that every person, partnered or unpartnered, has the right to the pursuit of a satisfying consensual sociosexual life free from political, legal or religious interference and that there need to be mechanisms in society where the opportunities of socio-sexual activities are available to the following: disabled persons; chronically ill persons; those incarcerated in prisons, hospitals or institutions; those disadvantaged because of age, lack of physical attractiveness or lack of social skills; the poor and the lonely.
  9. The basic right of all persons who are sexually dysfunctional to have available nonjudgmental sexual health care.
  10. The right to control conception.
Sex plays a very important role in every persons life. Sexual fantasies, desires and dreams should be recognized as valuable and integral parts of each person's sexuality.
Sex can and should be discussed casually and non-judgmentally. Individuals can enrich their own sex lives by learning about the full range of sexual behavior. Individuals have a right to know all the facts.
Everyone has a right to a good sex life, including persons who are physically compromised (paraplegics, diabetics, amputees, heart patients) or have mental/emotional problems.
Sexuality is the most individualist part of a person's life. It is up to each individual to determine and then to assume responsibility for her or his own sexuality. All of the varying modes of sexual expression are available to everyone, as long as people know what they are doing, feel good about it, and do not harm others.
To experience a healthy and fulfilling sex life, we need to learn about and appreciate our own bodies, know our feelings and our own sexual responses, become sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of others and develop meaningful intimate loving contact in our sexual relationships.
