But How Do I…?:Sex Ed Q&A

 Emerson 108, 6:00 pm 
Ever had a question about sex you were too afraid to ask? Ever felt like there was some major part of sex education that you missed out on? Here’s your chance to ask any and all questions! Boston-based sex educator Megara Bell will be taking anonymous questions about any element of sexual health you’re curious about.

Feeling Myself: Conversations About Masturbation

 Women’s Center Lounge, 8:30 pm 

Who is entitled to enter a conversation about how to auto-stimulate? How are differently gendered bodies taught to think of masturbation? What are the limits of polite conservation on masturbation? What kind of orgasm are we used to seeing? Let’s change the discourse on healthy conversations about masturbation and re-work whose bodies are given the societal space and opportunity to self-pleasure and learn about their own peaks and downs of stimulation.
