(Sunday, February 11, Multipurpose Room, 626 Thurston)
Sex isn't just personal - it's political. And although it's a topic that impacts all of us profoundly (whether we're having it or not), it's also one that is often bound up with harmful stereotypes and anxiety-fueling expectations.
Feminist author Rachel Hills wants to start a new sexual revolution. Following the success of her book The Sex Myth, published in 2015, she is on a mission to help people understand and question the messages we receive about sex.
Join us for an in-depth workshop and discussion that delves into these complex issues surrounding sex and society. Participants will learn about and discuss the socially constructed "Sex Myth" and will explore the idea of sex as a political act regulated through society and culture. The workshop will invite participants to think about the rules they perceive when it comes to sex, sharing their thoughts anonymously on post-it notes before moving into an open group discussion. The event is open to LGBTQ+ individuals on campus and their allies of all races, genders, and backgrounds.
Two sessions will be offered with Rachel on 2/11/18 in the 626 Thurston Ave Multipurpose Room. Due to space constraints, it is recommended that participants reserve a spot in the session of their choosing by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or filling out the following google form: https://goo.gl/forms/24OpXVUs9oNr76DA3
Both sessions will have FREE PIZZA and refreshments for all participants.
