Planet Waves is committed to an open-minded discussion of sexuality that encourages an airing of all viewpoints -- particularly the ones you don't hear from so often. We have created this Sexuality Resource Area to facilitate that discussion. You will see a wide diversity of projects presented here. Some of the projects are suitable for children and others are not -- if you are a parent, you will need to decide. The editors of this section, Paloma Todd and Mandy Hall, have checked the links to ensure that their position is basically humane, affirmative and free-thinking, though many are coming from a distinct viewpoint; please consider that when you're reading. We are truly interested in your response to what you read. Please send your comments to You may also suggest new resources, including your own, by email or using the form on this page. All links on this page are offered free of charge. Thank you kindly. -- Eric Francis
