Celebrate ‘World Pleasure Day’ With Our Pleasure Toolkit!

World Pleasure Day (WPD) was founded and created by Ianne Celeste Rivera in 2020. In Ianne’s words: “This day was manifested to open the mind, celebrate the body, and elevate the spirit of pleasure. I believe that to truly heal the wounds of our collective pain, we must reclaim the body as the root of our healing and pleasure as a gentle guide.” 

With the help of our partners and friends, we curated a global, multilingual and multimedia list of resources and creative content focused on pleasure. This Pleasure Toolkit is designed to grow and expand as our concepts and understanding of pleasure morph over time. Have some resources you’d like to contribute to this project? Please send links, videos, articles, etc to our team at adventuresfrom @ gmail.com to be added to this collection. Don’t forget to share with us in the comment section what brings you satisfaction. We want to know!

“All About You” is the first Georgian website on sexuality education. It aims to create a precedent for feminist, sex-positive, freedom-of-choice-oriented, tolerant, inclusive, equal sexual education adapted to the lives of young people in the Internet space and beyond.

The website provides information that is medically correct and through which sex education is carried out in countries such as the United States of America, Canada and Great Britain. The project is implemented by the International Women’s Network, a non-governmental organization that works to provide sexual education and promote sexual health.”
