Sextech is a field that is constantly evolving, both in meaning and impact. In short, it’s the intersection of sex and technology.
Sextech includes (but isn’t at all limited to) sex toys and other pleasure products, porn, apps, etc.
Women of Sextech is a community not-for-profit organization that aims to bring together those who are impacted most by sextech.
Our members identify in many roles: founders, educators, content creators, researchers, and technologists, just to name a few. They are racially, age, ability, and location-diverse. They hold many different sexual identities.
And most importantly, they identify as someone of a marginalized identity: women, femme, non-binary, transgender, agender, and beyond.
We should be clear: in the current state of sextech, many spaces are run by or solely center cisgender men. For that reason, we find it incredibly important that members are given a community space where men are welcome to be allies and co-conspirators, but not active members.
To be part of the sextech space is to be impacted by sex technology in your work in some way.
Perhaps this comes up in the barriers that you encounter in selling your pleasure products or anything within the sexuality space to a mainstream audience.
Maybe this comes up in the unacceptable censorship, shadowbanning, and deplatforming that you or your company experience on social media platforms.
Perhaps this comes up in the discrimination that you face in seeking business support, from payment processors to mentorship opportunities.
To be part of sextech also means that you are invested in helping to disrupt the space. You have incredible ideas and think of those most affected by sextech first as both users and those who are most at-risk. You want to help make the space even better, for everyone. And you want to be in community with others that understand the importance of that.
Member satisfaction is incredibly important to us. However, given the amount of volunteer effort and associated costs it takes to make Women of Sex Tech happen, all sales are final. You may cancel your membership at any time, but no refunds will be issued.
