Sex-Positive Health: How Public Health Professionals Can Promote Intimate Sources of WellbeingSexual problems of all kinds — including abuse, STIs, and misinformation — can constitute or contribute to public health problems, not to mention individual distress. Positive sexual relationships and sexual wellbeing are legitimate public health goals in themselves — how can public health professionals promote these, and foster the public’s (and the health professions’) understanding of and commitment to these goals? Join sexologist Carol Queen PhD for her take on — and group discussion about — these questions.

“Wisdom from Someone who Loves Sex to Someone Just Starting”
Many elements of our lives can facilitate great sex, OR sex that isn’t very pleasurable at all: the effects of good or bad sex education, role models, shame and harsh experiences, our ability to communicate. Pleasure activist and PhD sexologist Carol Queen explores these, and the paths to great sex she’s traveled along the way, in an intimate talk for people of all sexual experience levels. Mixing details of her own journey with academic information and the insights of various sexuality communities, she’ll look at the role of partnering and love, casual experiences, identity and affiliation, and of course learning solo.
