Declaration of Sexual Rights

(I found this today at The Cuntshop and felt that it bears repeating.)

Declaration of Sexual Rights

Sexual rights are fundamental and universal human rights that are described in the "Declaration of Sexual Rights." This declaration, since adopted by the World Health Organization, was first drawn up by the World Association of Sexologists at its 1999 conference in Hong Kong:

Declaration of Sexual Rights

Sexuality is an integral part of the personality of every human being. Its full development depends upon the satisfaction of basic human needs such as the desire for contact, intimacy, emotional expression, pleasure, tenderness, and love.

Sexuality is constructed through the interaction between the individual and social structures. Full development of sexuality is essential for individual, interpersonal, and societal well being.

Sexual rights are universal human rights based on the inherent freedom, dignity, and equality of all human beings. Since health is a fundamental human right, so must sexual health be a basic human right.

In order to assure that human beings and societies develop healthy sexuality, the following sexual rights must be recognized, promoted, respected, and defended by all societies through all means. Sexual health is the result of an environment that recognizes, respects, and exercises these sexual rights.
