WE CAN ACCEPT EACH OTHER AS WE ARE

The mission of the Sexpower foundation is to bring people closer together by pointing out their similarities instead of the differences. Empowerment and self-acceptance should be achievable for everyone. Unfortunately, this is not always as obvious as it should be. Often people are afraid of what they don’t know. This regularly creates an “us” against “them” feeling. This is certainly the case with regard to sexual preferences and orientation.

Our mission is to connect people by providing information, sharing knowledge and organizing and / or supporting events. The goal is to show people that we can accept each other as we are, even when we sometimes have a different experience, belief or vision. At the Sexpower foundation we like to focus on sexual stigmas. It is difficult to talk about this and we think there is a lot of room for improvement here. Happy people are better for each other!

OUR PROJECTS

What are we doing at the moment?

Our first project: non-profit brothels

We are currently getting a lot of interest from various cities in the Netherlands to set up brothels with safe workplaces according to the Sexpower Foundation guidelines. We are ready for anyone who considers safety and the de-stigmatization of the sex industry of paramount importance. Together we stand stronger!

Until today, we at the Sexpower Foundation have been a bit secretive, but over a year ago we signed a declaration of participation for the tender procedure for the Zandpad in Utrecht. Do you want to know more? Check out our blog.

Sex work is work too!
Everyone deserves a safe workplace and a place in society.

Research impact of corona on sex work – second measurement

What was the impact of covid-19 and the covid-19 measures on the safety of sex work in the Netherlands? Answers to this question can be found in the report and 2-pager of the second measurement of the study. The second measurement focused mainly on the safety and perceived violence of sex workers during this period.

Thesis: Harmed and made vulnerable

We had the pleasure to help Julia Nürnberger with the research for her thesis. She explored the experience of sex workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, which acted as a magnifying glass on their situation. Julia particularly writes about them in comparison to the precarity theory, Precarity describes an existence that lacks in predictability, job security, material or psychological welfare.

Sex Work & Policy in the Netherlands

In this dissertation by Celine Soeter, interviews were held with various interest groups for sex work in the Netherlands. The aim is to find out to what extent these organizations agree with the current sex work policy, the proposed Sex Work Regulation Act (Wrs), and what their role is in the policy-making process.

Monkeypox & sex work

Monkeypox is a virus that you can get by touching others. For example during cuddling or sex.

‘The stigma on sex work perpetuates a lot of misery’

"Involve sex workers in policy about the industry" is the opinion of safety specialist Hadeline Vorselaars. Use them as a sounding board for the municipality and let them have a say on the Sex Work Regulation Act. "A stronger sex industry can counteract the side effect of sexual exploitation."
