HOW TO LOSE YOUR VIRGINITY
at CSC

We’re screening the new documentary by Therese Shechter, director of the award-winning and provocative I WAS A TEENAGE FEMINIST.

It has launched both purity balls and porn franchises, defines a young woman’s morality–but has no medical definition. Enter the magical world of virginity, where a white wedding dress can restore a woman’s innocence and replacement hymens can be purchased online.

Filmmaker Therese Shechter uses her own path out of virginity to explore why our sex-crazed society cherishes this so-called precious gift. Along the way, we meet sex educators, virginity auctioneers, abstinence advocates, and young men and women who bare their tales of doing it—or not doing it.

“How To Lose Your Virginity” uncovers the myths and misogyny surrounding a rite of passage that many obsesses about but few truly understand.

Want more information? http://www.virginitymovie.com/about/. Go beyond the film to our V-Card Diaries, a crowd-sourced collection of sexual debuts and deferrals: http://virginitymovie.herokuapp.com/

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.

Admission: $20. at the door only

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!
