about thE SEX EXCHANGE
The Sex Exchange are sexual wellness events for attendees to explore the complex subject of sexuality through shame free, pleasure centered conversations. The ultimate goal is to help participants create a more pleasurable and healthy relationship with their own bodies and their partner(s) through verbal exchanges and interactive activities. We want everyone to feel empowered regardless of sexual orientation, race, or gender identity.
The negative messages we internalize about sex throughout our lives can begin to take a toll. Feelings such as disempowerment, shame, anxiety, and negativity keep people — especially those in marginalized groups — down in a wide-reaching way. Through the exchange of information and stories we can begin to reclaim our narrative. The Sex Exchange focuses on normalizing sexual liberation and pleasure as basic human rights.
"When it comes to sex, the most important six inches are the ones between the ears". - Dr. Ruth
