Zoom Meetup Free Speech with Diversity Communication Workshop
Intersecting Identity Play is a communication workshop that is designed to be fun, challenging and educational with many intelligent sex-positive people showing up for a Zoom evening of great conversation. It has slightly more risqué content than our Individual or Business workshops which are completely G-rated.
We live in a politically correct world that sometimes stifles honest conversation. Sex is one of the most politically incorrect subjects there is. This workshop is for curious or sex-positive adults to learn tools for communication between people of diverse groups.
Many attendees described how refreshed and energized they felt after talking intelligently, openly and passionately with others. They liked being able to converse without being labeled as prejudiced when they spoke their mind. There is palpable relief that many feel when they know they can communicate freely without being attacked as prejudiced if they say a ‘trigger’ word.
Intersecting Identity Play Adult Communication Workshops are hosted through Empowered Pleasure, a Portland-based organization centered around understanding and exploring all aspects of human sexuality, consent, relationship styles, kink, gender, and orientation. For those who live in the Portland, Oregon area, we recommend joining Empowered Pleasure either via their site or on Meetup. They host wonderful sex-positive events for adults that range from educational to experiential.
For those who live elsewhere in the world and want to attend any of our online workshops, you can purchase tickets to the workshop via Eventbrite without having to join Empowered Pleasure.
The Hedo Feminista communication guidelines that form the basis of this workshop transcend geographical location. After all, people all over the world, are increasingly sensitive about conversations related to social or ethnic identity.
In our workshops, we have an easy way to keep conversations light and fun while learning about how to deal with being offended. Instead of using examples about the usual indicators of social identity offense, such as gender or race, we use lifestyles to practice being offended with a JISC comment.
This option is only available upon request for our Diversity & Free Speech Communication Workshop which is much more PG rated. For obvious reasons, corporations and organizations do not want workshops with adult content so our business workshops are adjusted accordingly.
To reach a broader audience, we are keeping our workshop as a Zoom event even after the lifting of the lockdown restrictions. In this way, you can always attend, no matter where you live in the world. Please note that all times listed are Pacific Time, PST.
