Dirty Words: a monthly erotic writing playdate

Saturday, 3/22

Open the gates and let your writing voice flow
A half-day erotic writing group open to all
Fourth Saturday of every month
Ever read through a sexy short story and thought, “I’d like to do that!”? In this monthly writing group, you can try your hand at some explicit erotic writing.

Come together with a fun and supportive group of writers and dive into your own sexy and surprising new writing! This group is designed to leave you more confident with sexual language, erotic expression, and your own writing practice. You’ll receive immediate and concrete feedback about what’s already working (and hot!) in your writing, and will leave with several new pieces of work.

Don’t be surprised if you find, as have previous participants, that you’re more comfortable discussing your own sexual desires after practicing writing about fictional sex! Bring your notebooks or laptops and your most open mind.
Unless otherwise noted, this group meets on the fourth Saturday of the month. Fee for this group is $25-50, sliding scale. Limited to 10 writers!

No previous writing experience necessary! Workshops held in San Francisco at the Center for Sex and Culture (1349 Mission St.); pre-registration is required — please write to jennifer@writingourselveswhole.org with questions or to register.

Center for Sex & Culture: Traveling at CatalystCon — a benefit for CSC 

Thursday, March 13, 2014, 8pm 

Where: Crystal City Hilton - Commonwealth Ballroom (Crystal City, VA)
How much: Suggested $10-50 donation; no one turned away for lack of funds 
San Francisco’s Center for Sex & Culture goes on the road for an evening showcasing its special perspectives about sexuality, with performances by CSC favorite Ducky DooLittle, CSC director Carol Queen, and the opportunity to purchase its first publication, Safe Sex Bang. Over 18 years of age, all are welcome.

Please note: To attend the Catalyst conference, visit http://catalystcon.com/register/

Crystal City Hilton is served directly by DC-area Metro. 
Credit cards accepts for admission, purchases, and donations.
The Center for Sex & Culture is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit; all donations are tax-deductible.  
“THE CENTER FOR SEX & CULTURE: TRAVELING” MAKES AN APPEARANCE AT CATALYSTCON — Washington DC-area Sex Conference Hosts CSC Benefit Evening
Two extraordinary organizations that promote sex education and lively, sophisticated discussions about sex and culture will join forces next month to entertain, inform, and raise funds. CatalystCon, North America’s most unique sexuality conference, welcomes San Francisco’s Center for Sex & Culture to the East Coast and hosts a benefit evening of performance and more on behalf of the West Coast nonprofit. This event is open to the public (18+), not only attendees of the conference.

CatalystCon, marking its second year at the Crystal City Hilton, brings sex educators, bloggers, academics, students, and community activists together March 14-16 for three days of panels, keynotes, and passionate conversation and networking. The CSC benefit, “Center for Sex & Culture: Traveling,” launches the conference on March 13th. Featuring performances from renowned sex educator Ducky DooLittle and CSC founder Dr. Carol Queen and hosted by CSC co-founder Dr. Robert Morgan Lawrence, the event also offers an opportunity for attendees to peruse or purchase Safe Sex Bang, CSC’s first publication—a full-color catalog of the Center’s recent show of HIV/AIDS safer sex posters from the ’80s and beyond. 

Carol Queen will present an excerpt of her solo performance, “Peep Show,” about her time working as a “real live nude girl” at San Francisco’s notorious Lusty Lady theater. In it, she brings her audience backstage and into the “talk booth” of the historic peep show, which closed last year after several years as a union house and later as a worker-owned cooperative. Meet her co-workers and customers in this special, surprising, intimate and funny tour. Carol is the author of Exhibitionism for the Shy, Real Live Nude Girl, and The Leather Daddy and the Femme; she has edited many other books about sex and eroticism.

Ducky Doolittle will perform her own peep show tales; while Carol held down the fort in San Francisco, at the tender age of 19 Ducky was having adventures at Show Follies on the other side of the continent. Her insights about the thousands of men she saw there—and the way the other peep show girls helped her learn the ropes and grow up—will amaze the civilians and make other former sex workers nod in recognition. Ducky is the author of Sex With The Lights On: 200 Illuminating Sex Questions Answered and is currently the Education Coordinator for the New York Academy of Sex Education. She is also the Education Coordinator for adult retailer Tantus Inc.
In addition to the performances showcased at “CSC: Traveling,” the Center for Sex & Culture will have a strong presence at CatalystCon. Founders Carol Queen PhD and Robert Morgan Lawrence DC, EdD will participate in several panels: Carol will present “Consent: It Takes A Village,” “Promiscuity: Virtue or Vice?”, and “Real to Reel Sex.” Robert joins her for “Consent: It Takes A Village.”
CSC board member Metis Black will present “Creating Change in the Sex Toy Industry.” Many others who have presented at the Center for Sex & Culture will also participate in CatalystCon, including Annie Sprinkle, Betty Dodson, Jackie Strano and Shar Rednour, Melissa Gira Grant, and Siouxsie Q.

Queen will also host an evening of readings as part of CatalystCon’s Saturday night program, “Off the Page: Sex Talk with Carol Queen and Friends”: Exceptional conversations about sex happen in many forms—face to face, in bed, on the ‘Net, and coloring our cultural representations. Writers have them all the time, alone with their laptops—and it’s a treat to bring them off the page and into a room full of engaged listeners! Join Carol Queen and some of Catalyst’s erotic writers, memoirists, essayists, and sex pundits for a night of conversation-sparking readings to remember.

"Thinking about curating a literary night for CatalystCon," said Queen, "I wanted to extend the focus of the panels and events, but also —especially— of the many hot and heavy conversations about all things sexual that the conference inspires. I’ve invited some of my favorite writers to participate, and I’m sure that together they’ll create one terrific reading! This also gives me a chance to bring some of the energy of the Center for Sex & Culture to share with CatalystCon, since many of our readers are friends of CSC, have appeared there, and create the kind of discourse that CSC exists to promote." "Off the Page" showcases the literary talents and unique perspectives of Robert Morgan Lawrence, Twanna Hines, Lilith Grey, Gram Ponante, Tina Horn, Annie Sprinkle, and Veronica Vera. 

Additionally, Carol Queen helps close CatalystCon with an historic conversation with “the Mother of Masturbation,” Betty Dodson. 

Carol Queen appears at CatalystCon courtesy of Good Vibrations: www.goodvibes.com.

About CatalystCon: CatalystCon is a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality. It is about reaching out and stimulating those who attend to create those important conversations in their own communities, changing how we as a society talk about and treat sexuality. It is about stimulating the activist that is within all of us and sparking transformation in the way our friends, neighbors, children, and even politicians discuss one of the most important aspects of humanity. The fundamental principle behind CatalystCon is “knowledge is power, and sharing that knowledge is the first spark in igniting change”. For more information, visit CatalystCon.com.

Shibari Sketch Session V: Kanso & True Blue-Bondage Erotique
Sunday March 16, 8 pm-11 pm
Admission: $20. at the door only

http://shibarisketch.com

About Bondage Erotique:

"Our intention is to share the world of Shibari with a broader audience, beyond the realms of BDSM; with people who are looking for ways to enhance their relationships through exploration and an intimate experience based in trust, with an added twist of kink! We are seeking to further dispel the image of bondage as existent only in a seedy dark dungeon or via internet bondage pornography. These are only one end of a large spectrum of rope play. We celebrate the historical, artistic, sensual art of Japanese rope bondage. "- Kanso and True Blue

Shibari Sketch will hold it’s fifth monthly session and we are pleased to announceBondage Erotique artists, Kanso and True Blue!
They look forward to taking participants on a journey through the erotically and emotionally impactful aesthetics of Japanese Rope!
