The way each of us talks about our body parts, sex, gender, and relationships can be said with either confidence or anxiety. Growing up in a family where sexuality is treated with disgust colors our sense of self with contempt or humiliation. Providing responsible sex-positive content educates and leads to knowledgeable, confident adults and parents. That’s why TKFND’s Radical Collaboration partners with YOU for the wellbeing of all. It’s not only WHAT we say, but also HOW we say it that counts.
We provide education and advocacy outreach. We invite thought about desires, encourage making deliberate decisions about sexual experience, and support talking about what feels safe and satisfying to us with our partners. We invite the global therapeutic community to join us in broadening sexuality education to include diverse families by teaching new words and definitions to use, expanding vocabulary and expanding concepts like sexual self-esteem, being a person with sexual integrity, and by maintaining that sexuality is a far larger concept focused on personal relationships, individual’s sexual values and beliefs, and social justice for diversity.
Our mission is to provide support, scholarship and research to empower individuals to help themselves and then help others on their sexual wellness journeys. Professionals in the field believe that as soon as kids can talk, it’s time for them to hear “The Talk”, but how many of us are informed and comfortable with these topics ourselves? TKFND encourages intellectual and sexual curiosities and is committed to provide everyone with an environment that is appropriate for the diversity of human sexuality, personal growth, and conscious transformation one person at a time, across the globe. A healthy sexual education at every age provides the strongest foundation to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future.
We envision a world where sexual health is an important part of every individual’s general health and every smart and courageous person in our global community learns the beauty of intimacy, finding support and acceptance in a sex-positive community who cares for one another in a kind way rather than facing a steam engine of distrust, shame, or rage.
