Starting conversations that matter with the people in your life.
When it comes to affection, sex and sexuality, we all have boundaries – the lines that define where we stop being comfortable and start feeling uneasy. Boundaries are tricky because they’re invisible. And because they’re unique to each of us. One person’s idea of a joke can be another person’s hurtful insult.
Sex Turned Up is a campaign to start conversations with the people that matter in your life about where your lines lie, and what is and isn’t ok.
It’s about talking, and it’s about listening. And it starts now.

What is the history of the Sex Turned Up campaign?
Our campaign began in the spring of this year when several Arizona politicians re-donated to ACESDV funds they had received from an insidious source – profits from a human trafficking operation.
We knew we had to ensure that the pain behind those dollars were exchanged for empowerment and change.
What we could never have expected was the #MeToo movement, and the incredible potential for change that our community and country now faces. Courageous women and men are coming forward and bravely sharing and confronting behaviors that have prevailed for far too long. Together we are tackling the past and creating a new future.
Sex Turned Up is creating the future we need. One where everyone is free to be their authentic selves.
