Dear sexual freedom fighters, educators, pleasure revolutionaries,
This is for you. The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance just released its call for proposals for the 2014 Sexual Freedom Summit. This is the 5th Annual Summit, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.
If you weren’t able to attend the 2013 Sexual Freedom Summit, you have got to watch this chilling keynote by activist Carmen Vázquez, “It’s about the truth of who we are. The whole truth. The sex part, and the race part, and the class part, and the gender part.”
It’s time to lift the veil of shame and secrecy surrounding sexuality.
I was sitting next to Carmen while she gave this speech, and it genuinely rendered me speechless, which was difficult since I was to speak next. I had chills, and I hope you have the opportunity to join us in this chilling movement.
You can submit a proposal here. And I genuinely encourage you to do so.
The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance wants to know what Summit session makes you wet. To be entered to win a Papaya sex toy, post the juiciest session on Facebook or Twitter using hashtag, #SFS13.
Click here for the schedule, and get ready to get off!
Note: You’ll need to enter by midnight EST tonight (9/11), and you have to actually attend the Summit to receive the toy. And if your account is not public, you’ll need to post it on Woodhull’s Facebook Wall or to @WoodhullSFA Twitter account so that your entry can be seen.
Register for the Sexual Freedom Summit before it’s too late!
I am excited to invite and welcome you to Woodhull’s fourth annual Sexual Freedom Summit. It’s coming up in just two weeks: from September 19-22, 2013 in Washington, D.C. I am one of the Summit Co-Chairs this year, alongside Ricci Levy and Tess Danesi.
So we talk about sexting, we talk about sex, we talk about what’s sexy. Sex sells, right?
But when are we going to begin having the conversation about consent? And when will we begin respecting the decision of consenting adults? I am angry. I am angry that consent doesn’t come up more in daily conversation.
I just read an article by Business Insider titled: These Are The Sexts That Cost Hearst’s Executive Producer Of ‘The Bible’ His Job.
This gist: An Executive Producer at Hearst was sexting a sex worker from an online escort service. Said-escort’s boyfriend who claims to also be her business manager got mad. Angry boyfriend decided to sell photos of her text messages to Hearst or TMZ (likely among other organizations). Hearst purchased the photos (is this really what we’re spending money on nowadays? What about starving people? Homeless people? Sick people? People who sell their children because they are in debt and it’s their cultural norm…..and THIS is what we spend money on? C’mon, let’s get it together. /rant). Hearst fired said-executive and released all of the photos. I’ve included a couple of the sexts below:
last year I was in the DC Vagina Monologues, and the last monologue was: Over It. We are over rape, and we are here in 2013 to hold our promise.
