Panel:  Class In Session: Are sex workers and adult film producers the new educators?  Many people learn about sex from adult films.  Performers and producers have acknowledged this fact, actively taking on the role as sex educators and feminist, gender and body awareness advocates. Sex workers and producers  will illuminate how adult content as education can be empowering or problematic.  2pm

Panel:  Sex Workers and Performers Speak For Themselves:  Many academics and activists speak about the destructiveness of sex work and performing on camera without hearing from and valuing the experiences of the workers. This panel will unpack the myths and assumptions about sex work. Hear diverse stories from folks in the industry and learn what draws them to the profession, what keeps them, and how you can be an ally. Collaboration with SlutWalk.  3:30pm

Sex Stories We Love: Beware – Con Condoms, Reinventing Sex Ed, Freeing Pleasure & More!

This week’s Sex Stories We Love on Kinkly focuses on sex ed. Again. Why? But it really needs to improve and I’m going to write on it frequently until it does! Part of this sex ed focus is going to be contributing to STD Awareness Month throughout April. It would be great if there were no more stigma about STDs and STIs, and that is only going to come with better sex ed.

Check out stories on Beware – Con Condoms!, Learning New Language, Reinventing Sex Ed, Freeing Pleasure, Never Stop Learning, and Icon Lives On.
