Are we ready for global-wide sexual liberation? Is accelerated social and technical progress possible without it? VenusPlusX commits itself to these provocative questions. Founded by independent activist-partners Dan Massey and Alison Gardner in September, 2011, the duo is devoted to ushering in “The New Age of Sexual Freedom” - a world free, in it’s words, from the “global culture of racial, sexual and gender oppression and violence driven by governments, religions, corporations and social customs.”
VenusPlusX takes it’s name from a science fiction novel set in a post-gender future (Theodore Sturgeon, 1999), and it draws inspiration from two famous androgynous, transgender USA icons - the Statue of Liberty, and “Columbia” on the Capitol dome. Their website states that they are promoting “a single, simple idea: universal sexual freedom, starting with the supreme, elemental, entirely natural love-sexual connection, and carried forth in everyone’s individual and shared bodily certainty of what freedom feels like and how it is inextricably connected to our pursuit of happiness, prosperity, health, and global peace.”
