Sexual Policies

Sexual harassment is bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors. In most modern legal contexts, sexual harassment is illegal. As defined by the US EEOC, “It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex.” Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. The legal definition of sexual harassment differs by jurisdiction so, we include out own definition below.

In Chrysalis Circle, we do not use sexual intercourse in any ritual. We do not include sexual intercourse or sexual favors as a basis of advancing in classes or our degree system.

We consider it an unethical practice to use sex in our rites because of the power dynamic of priest/ess to supplicant or teacher to student that is not considered an equal relationship and can easily be abused.

We do include the Five-fold Kiss in some rituals.
We do include the Symbolic Great Rite in some rituals.
There can be brief ritual nudity in some rituals, but only with mutual informed consent.
In none of these cases is there intimate genital contact.

We will provide a demonstration of either, (as we interpret them), upon request.
