Come join Finding Intersectionality Together and The Well during Sex Week as we bring in Afrosexology to facilitate a workshop called Less Oppression, More Orgasms. Historically, Black people have been told that they are asexual, hypersexual, sexual deviants, a sexual fantasy, and unrapeable. These messages are often internalized and leave feelings of being unlovable, unworthy, and devalued. To challenge those myths, reclaiming pleasure is necessary. Together we will:
- Learn about living a life of pleasure as a form of resistance
- Explore how oppression has impacted our ability to be present in our bodies
- Reclaim our erotic power through completing several individual and group activities
More about Afrosexology: Afrosexology was birthed out of our desire to experience a more sex-positive Black community. One that encourages self agency & promotes love in regards to our bodies, relationships, and sexualities. One that liberates us from the sexual shame & policing that we've inherited from generations of sexual & body oppression. One that follows in the tradition of Black sexual politics by seeking to rediscover & reclaim our sexuality.
This workshop is open to all students!
