VenusPlusX™ is devoted to ushering in “The New Age of Sexual Freedom” –
a world free from the global culture of racial, sexual, and gender oppression and violence
perpetrated by governments, religions, corporations, and social customs.
VenusPlusX’s educational and advocacy campaigns and involvement in grassroots activism draw inspiration from the figure of Columbia—a transgender icon deeply embedded in the American psyche as the Statue of Freedom atop the U.S. Capitol dome, the Statue of Liberty, and the venerable Uncle Sam.
Founded in 2010, VenusPlusX is a privately funded, not-for-profit, grant-making organization led by its two founders, Dan Massey and Alison Gardner, almost a dozen staff and associates, and a growing roster of sexual freedom advisors and advocates throughout the U.S. and abroad. In September 2011, the website was expanded and redesigned to embrace the full scope of VenusPlusX’s work. And, this past summer, a sister Spanish-language site, VenusMasX.org, was created.
VenusPlusX promotes a single, simple ideal: universal sexual freedom, starting with the supreme, elemental, and entirely natural love-sexuality connection, and carried forth in everyone’s individual and shared bodily certainty of what freedom feels like and how it is inextricably imbedded in our pursuit of happiness, prosperity, health, and global peace, even joyful immortality.
