Theresa “Darklady” Reed is a writer, editor, and erotic event impresario. Sex toys, porn, erotica, BDSM, polyamory, politics – she thinks she knows it all and even if she doesn’t, she fakes it pretty well. She is responsible for 10 years of Portland Masturbate-a-thons and is now owner of Catalyst: A Sex Positive Place. She is a former editor of Exotic Magazine, Ms. Oregon State Leather 2004, and a freelancer with Adult Video News for well over a decade.​​

The Catalyst: A Sex Positive Place staff goal is to create a safe and all-inclusive environment that provides learning opportunities, active community, and open exploration of consensual gratification. We provide a safe space for people to gather and explore the things that make them happy and connect with like-minded people.

Assets for Sale and Transfer of Lease Desired

Have you ever wanted to own a turnkey-ready social/event/dungeon space in Central Portland, OR? Of course, you have! What about a space that's ADA-compliant, on several Tri-Met routes, and has a security gate and a parking lot? Pretty nifty. There's a phone number that can be transferred and groups that meet regularly and may be interested in remaining in the space under your fabulous management! You will need to pass the building management's lease requirements. Contact Darklady for more information.
