PVV – Good Vibrations’ Sex Summit, 2012

Super squeeee – I am so excited to be participating in Good Vibrations’ Sex Summit, 2012!! (coming up on October 27th in San Francisco, CA)

According to press material:

Good Vibrations is the San Francisco-based retailer trusted for more than three decades to provide a comfortable, safe environment for finding sex-positive products and educational materials to enhance one’s sex life.

Through this “Gathering Of Great Minds On Sexual Politics, Health, Education, and Culture,” Good Vibrations is working to address the sexual state of the union.


From the battle over reproductive freedom to the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, sex is dominating politics and headlines and it is keenly felt in this election year. Pioneering adult retailer Good Vibrations has gathered the brightest minds to explore our sexual state of the union at the Sex Summit on October 27th in San Francisco, CA. Featuring an all-star line-up of authors, journalists, academics, and pop culture commentators, this day-long conference will unpack the many issues and implications in sex and the media, health, pop culture, and politics.

The day-long conference will consist of three keynotes and four panels.

Keynote speakers include author and research scientist Debby Herbenick, award-winning journalist Brian Alexander, and sex therapist Marty Klein, all of whom bring their extensive professional experience and personal perspectives to bear on the themes of the day. Four panels will delve deep into four features of sex in society.

The panels are:

Panel 1 – “Regulating Pleasure: Sex, Politics & Censorship”

Panel 2 – “Outspoken/Unsaid: Sex & Media” (this is the panel that I will be on!!)

Panel 3 – “Pills, Profits & Pleasures: Sexual Health & Pharmaceuticals”

Panel 4 – “Sexual Stargazing: Sex & Pop Culture”

The price of admission includes access to the panels and keynotes, a post-conference hosted cocktail reception, and “QUICKIES,” Good Vibrations’ Indie Erotic Short Film Competition and party at the Castro Theatre on October 26th.

I will definitely write up everything I can after the fact and I know there will be lots of tweeting under the hashtag #SexSummit, but it would be super fun if you were there in person. Come hang out, come learn, come take action!! \m/
