*TLC OFFSITE* A Conversation About Female Sexual Empowerment

Artwork by  Carlo Bongiovanni

** Please note: This event will be held at General Assembly at 1133 15th St NW **

Please join us for a panel discussion to benefit Planned Parenthood on April 24 about all things female empowerment and sexual pleasure-related issues. Our panel will focus on increasing fun and sexual pleasure for women and those who identify as women, how to advocate for yourself in the bedroom, body positive affirmations, and answering audience-generated questions.

In the current culture of the #metoo campaign and Times Up, this is a revolution of women empowerment. It’s time now for women to claim their bodies as their own and that our pussies are not for grabbing, unless, consented. There are so many ways for women to have sex and feel good about their bodies, so why don’t we teach pleasure and the power of healthy-sex in Sex Ed? Why hasn’t your gynecologist ever asked you how you orgasm? Why do most conversations about sex revolve around male pleasure and ejaculation?

Do you have questions about what to do when sex just isn’t going right? Insecurities with your body or questions about sex that you aren’t comfortable asking your friends? Then please join us for our panel on April 24! All proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington.
