Keep Giving A Fuck: A Conversation About Prioritizing Sex During Trying Times

August 5 @ 10:45 am - 12:15 pm

We face challenging issues everyday, from health crises, to unemployment struggles to the current US political climate. That fact combined with society’s tendency to dismiss sex as a frivolous luxury even under the best of circumstances can result in sex feeling not worthy of devoting time and effort to when there are so many more important things to worry about. When we don’t challenge this notion the results can include inaccurate sex education, reproductive healthcare attacks, and a widespread failure to understand healthy sexual interaction, not to mention the impact on individual relationships. We want to examine society’s impulse to devalue sexuality, the dynamics that cause sex to get lost in the shuffle, and the ever-present question “are you really worried about THAT right now?” Using information from Indira’s years in practice, JoEllen’s research, and both presenters’ lived experience we will analyze these patterns and offer alternative strategies, explaining step by step what each means and how they work. Additionally we will offer attendees tools to connect with after they leave the session.
