Join us for a thoughtful discussion with Sex Positive Boston!
We'll be talking about negotiating boundaries. Have you had good experiences with negotiating boundaries with sexual partners? Bad experiences? Have you ever had a difficult time with a partner's boundaries? Do you feel like it's worth it to have a conversation about boundaries with a casual sex partner (yours and theirs)? How have times that you talked about sexual boundaries differed from times that you didn't? We'll explore these questions and more!
After the discussion, anyone who feels like it is invited to join us for chatting and hanging out at Doyle's, a bar that is next to the Meeting Point.
This discussion will be facilitated by Jean-Pierre Frost, a Boston-based sex educator who is passionate about making intersectional values accessible and believes in the power of empathy to catalyze social change.
Following the discussion, we'll have a brief show-and-tell of any sexual acceptance related projects anyone is working on. Feel free to bring your project (or information on your project) for show-and-tell, if you have one.
Who should come?
This is a public event for people of all genders, races, class backgrounds, etc. Our hope is to have a diverse crowd. Feel free to invite people!
This event is taking place at The Meeting Point, a social justice-based healing center in Jamaica Plain. The space is wheelchair accessible and has gender-neutral restrooms.
This is a free event. You are welcome to donate to Pleasure Pie for organizing the event / The Meeting Point for hosting us, but it is totally cool not to donate.
Sex Positive Boston strives to be a space where people are able to openly and honestly explore sensitive topics. At the beginning of the discussion, we will set some guidelines that aim to help people comfortable enough to explore these topics in a public setting. For now you can check out some guidelines we've used in the past here: http://www.pleasurepie.org/safer-space-guidelines.html
FYI: Coming to this discussion mainly because you're looking for people to hook up with or date is not welcome. This group is about sharing ideas. Please respect the purpose of the group.
