MANIFESTO FOR SEX POSITIVE SOCIAL MEDIA
Sex and sexual content has cultural, social, and political value. Sex is not inherently harmful. Sex can be a positive, pleasurable part of human experience.
Integrate sexual cultures into social media!
Allow sexual content on social media. Banning, deleting, and deplatforming sex harms our sexual rights, imagination, possibilities, literacy and health.
Value the labour of sexual content creators!
Sex work is work, and sexual labour is valuable. Recognise the value of sexual content creators, avoid exploiting their value, and instead compensate these content creators through visibility, decision-making power and equitable distribution of profit.
Build safer spaces!
Centre sexual content creators and marginalised communities as knowledgeable platform stakeholders, decision-makers and leaders. Explicitly set out the values and ethics that guide community standards and reflect these in business structures, revenue models and platform design.
Learn from, and model, consent culture. Only upload, reproduce, and share content and data where consent is informed, express, specific and dynamic. Allow platform access without requiring legal names, identification documents, biometric verification or unwanted surveillance.
Make transparent, accessible, explainable, accountable, equitable and just decisions about sexual content. Give users and creators information and tools so they can understand and contest how their sexual content is classified, sorted and ranked.
Dismantle structural oppressions!
Actively participate in a broader movement for sexual justice. Work with multiple stakeholders to build enabling, sex-positive legal, policy, economic, social and cultural environments.
