PRUDEmag is a Toronto-based zine for spinsters, rule-makers, asexuals, relationship anarchists, and all others refusing sex necessarism.
We reclaim "prude" as a celebration of our autonomy and boundary setting, and a liberation in which "no" is sacred.
Since our first issue in 2019, PRUDEmag has been featured on the CBC series "The Big Sex Talk" and in Planned Parenthood Toronto's Teen Health Source. Broken Pencil Magazine called us "the inclusive sex zine of the century".
We believe strongly in prude-slut solidarity and prude-slut simultaneity. We understand prudeness as radical challenge to colonialism, capitalism, white supremacy, and cisheteropatriarchy. Solidarity, community care, and play are pillars of the prude movement.
Whether our prudism is related to our sexual orientation, our trauma, our disability, our spirituality, or none of the above, prude identity rejects a one-size-fits-all sexual empowerment.
