Sexuality & Spirituality News, Op-Ed, & E-Learning Website

About The Project

Sacredsexualities.org will be a news, information and e-learning website that provides users opportunities to stay informed about and discuss current issues related to sex, sexuality, spirituality/religion, and culture; read thoughtful, provocative and sex-positive commentary by sexperts, opinion leaders, public intellectuals, and professionals; take dynamic courses in sexuality, spirituality/religion, and cultural interests lead by experts on the cutting edge of their fields; and purchase consumer products and services that support their sexual and spiritual development. 

The website is the brainchild of Dr. Herukhuti, author, sexologist, clinical sociologist, neotraditional shaman, professior, cultural studies scholar, and life coach. He holds a Ph.D. in human and organizational systems with a specialization in sexuality and concentration in transformative learning for social justice, M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction, and undergraduation degrees in psychology and political science. Dr. Herukhuti has held a faculty appointment at Goddard College, the first low residency college in the United States, for six years and Fielding Graduate University, one of the most innovative distributed learning universities for graduate education in the United States. He has been published and his work has received critical acclaim in numerous publications, anthologies, peer-reviewed academic journals, and popular outlets.

Dr. Herukhuti has been the editor-in-chief of blackfunk.org a website that provided users around the world with access to information about culture, sex and spirituality. Sacredsexualities.org is an evolution of that idea--expanding the scope, market, and offerings of the previous website. The new website will provide users access to many more sexperts, thought leaders, public intellectuals and professionals while also continuing to provide access to Dr. Herukhuti's compelling voice.

Upon successful completion of this crowdfunding campaign, we will offer one or more of the following rewards to contributors based upon their level of contribution:

  • Listing (with consent of the contributor) as a contributor on a page of the website;
  • Featured interview on the website;
  • Copies of books authored by Dr. Herukhuti;
  • Registration fee waiver to the e-learning module;
  • Tuiton waiver for 1-3 courses;
  • One free life coaching (group) session with Dr. Herukhuti;
  • One free life coaching package (individual, virtual) of six sessions with Dr. Herukhuti; and/or
  • Registration fee waiver to one weekend retreat (limited based upon attendee prerequisites).

The funds raised will be spent to develop, launch, and promote the website, which will be the HuffPo of sexuality. All around the world the need for sex-positive, thoughtful and informed conversations about sexuality, the Sacred, and culture are becoming increasingly important. People are seeking answers to complex questions that are arising from the changing nature of our private and public lives. They need spaces where they can get access to reliable information; cultivate skills and knowledge that affords them a deeper relationship with their erotic, sensual and sexual lives; and converse with people of shared interests across the globe. Sacredsexualities.org will be that space.

Project By

Sexual Culture Ctr

has supported 0 projects

Our mission is to liberate the ways people love, sex, share affection, experience the Erotic, and connect to the Sacred. We provide a space for the exhibition and exploration of sensual awareness, sexual consciousness, erotic power, and pleasure; to provide a gathering place for sexually liberated people to express themselves and enjoy erotic events, demonstrations, and sexuality-related classes.

Our vision is a network of communities, groups, and individuals who are committed to sexual empowerment and erotic liberation. We envision the creation of sexual culture communities within which all of who we are is affirmed, nurtured, and caressed. We envision a global village in which hegemonies and structural inequality based upon gender, sexual identity, class, skin color, physicality, and ethnicity are rendered obsolete so that we can create sexual-sociocultural lives that are sustaining to our souls and affirming of our spirits.

We are committed to social justice and ecological wellbeing and hold the following values:

• Respect for differences
• Conflict is an opportunity to learn
• We are all responsible all the time
• Everyone matters always
