Zoom Workshop on Free Speech & Diversity in Social Situations
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.
Intersecting Identity Play is a communication workshop that is designed to be fun, challenging and educational for a Zoom evening of great conversation. As a workshop designed for sex-positive adults, it has slightly more risqué content than our Individual or Business workshops which are completely G-rated.
Many attendees described how refreshed and energized they felt after talking intelligently, openly and passionately without being labeled as prejudiced when they spoke their mind or if they say a ‘trigger’ word or what we call a JISC comment (Jokes, Ignorance, Stereotype, Criticism).
The 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 learn easy ways 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.
As an adult workshop we try to spend part of the class talking about a edgy subject that has to do with sexuality and society.
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.
Our Hedonisia Diversity & Free Speech Business Communication Workshop is less risqué. For obvious reasons, corporations and organizations may not want workshops with adult content, so our business workshops are adjusted accordingly.
