PAWTUCKET, Rhode Island (November 28, 2017) – The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (the CSPH) is pleased to announce System JO as a fundraising partner for its “Giving Tuesday” campaign today. The intimate lubricant manufacturer will be matching donations, dollar-for-dollar up to $2,000, raised by the sex-positive educational organization, on this global day dedicated to champion charitable giving.


“We are endlessly grateful for System JO’s generous matching gift pledge this ‘Giving Tuesday’,” says Executive Director of the CSPH, Kayla Wingert. “Our programs and services are made possible through the support of individual donors and partners like System JO. Gifts made on ‘Giving Tuesday’ will support CSPH programs, such as our twice-annual Sexual Attitude Reassessment, our national Study Sex College Tour, and our sex therapy services. We hope you will join System JO in supporting comprehensive, medically accurate, and pleasure inclusive sex education, by making a donation this ‘Giving Tuesday’.”

That’s why we’re proud to support the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health on ‘Giving Tuesday’. Since its founding in 2010, The CSPH has been providing pleasure-inclusive sex education across the country, and offering sliding-scale sex therapy services to low-income individuals and couples. We couldn’t be happier to match gifts dollar-for-dollar made to the CSPH on November 28. Please give generously.”
