Sexual Pleasure

CoP Introduction and Overview

Established in 2019, our Sexual Pleasure CoP  wants to showcase how sexual pleasure and sexual well-being can be put into practice and add value to wider SRH programming by sharing knowledge and resources on sexual pleasure with the other CoPs, Share-Net members within and the SRH community in general. This CoP is very active and meets once every 6 weeks. The group consists of 6 members who are all pleasure enthusiasts and enjoy thinking of how we can make the incorporation of sexual pleasure work into mainstream SRHR work more tangible 🥵🥵


  • Sharing latest developments of pleasure and sexual wellbeing in SRH to ensure all Share-Net members (and where relevant a wider audience) have access to state of the art resources and research.
  • Investigating and developing ways how the concept of sexual pleasure and sexual wellbeing can be put into practice in SRH policies/programming (including CSE, service delivery etc.)
  • Exploring gaps in research on (impact of) integrating sexual pleasure in policies, defining research questions and promoting/encouraging research in relevant institutions
