Talk of the Town: "Sex without Stigma"
Tue, June 6, 2017, 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM BST
Tantric sex. Orgasmic meditation. Sexology. ‘Alternative’ sexual practices are on the rise: but are they something to embrace and celebrate? Or is alternative sexuality a myth: a fabrication designed to circumvent the shame and stigma of being a woman who knows what she wants in the bedroom?
We bring together an expert panel of practitioners to explore the truth behind these sexual practices, and to ask and answer some tough questions: is sex really ‘more OK’ if it’s for love? Does there need to be a higher purpose? Or is there a place for straight-up fornication in the sex lives of women?
We will ask whether there’s a right and a wrong way to explore our female sexuality, and whether alternative practices really are empowering for women - or do they simply serve to take advantage of those who are vulnerable, feeding on their inner shame and fear?
Join us to hear from a range of women who will share the stories of their sexual journeys, and how they have overcome stigma and judgements. Stay around after the panel for a drink and to continue the conversation.
