Middle School Survival Club: What Is Sex? (Online)
May 12, 6:30pm $25
As the title of one of the best kids’ sex ed books available proclaims, “Sex Is a Funny Word.” In our culture, “sex” is often assumed to mean heterosexual intercourse. But the world is much more nuanced than that. In this workshop, we will try to reframe the concept of sex around egalitarianism, inclusivity, respect, trust and pleasure, while introducing the importance of safer sex and debunking the myth of virginity.
This is a live, online, all-genders’ workshop. (The “all genders” class is for EVERYONE. We sometimes offer a boys’ class and a girls’ class. The material is the same in all classes.)
The Butterly Academy is a health, self care, and sex ed org founded by veteran relationship writer & Certified Holistic Sex Educator Lo Sharkey that’s dedicated to empowering kids & their caregivers around the realities of relationships with positivity, inclusion, and age-appropriate honesty.
