Getting Wordy, Talking Dirty

Monday, March 7th, 2016

Ahoy corsairs! Last week we held the “Getting Wordy, Talking Dirty seminar, with a guest speaker from the Center for Sexual Health and Pleasure. Thanks to our small but engaged audience.  The event was a lot of fun and in the case you missed it, here’s the scoop!

Walking in, on their table was an assortment of  high quality toys, condoms and lubricants. Sheets anonymous of papers lined every chair with short and fun questions about interests and desires. As I was finishing the question, I looked up to see the friendly and well humored speaker doing a funny little dance. She was eager to engage one-on-one and hear audience thoughts and opinions while softly providing the topic in a professional and entertaining manner.

After every statement, she’d engage with the listeners asking questions and offering prizes from the tables. The topics of the conversation range from when and how to talk to your partner about trying new things as well as exploring your own sexuality and interests. The papers resurfaced for another fun event involving balling them up and tossing them around like a pseudo-snowball fight. The last paper in your hand was yours to keep and read, a way to see that all people are into different things. There is nothing strange about what you’re like, or what anyone else does.

Keep an eye out for upcoming events such as Living in the Crosshairs: The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism being held on March 7th at 12 noon in the Grand Reading Room.
