This past Friday, I had the distinct pleasure of being the keynote speaker at Georgia College & State University’s inaugural Women’s Sexual Health Symposium (my talk was about 10 Myths, Rumors & Misunderstandings about Sex). They had an incredible turnout of at least 200 women and men – an attendance that would be enviable for such an event in its first – or even fiftieth – year running!
The event was organized by the Women’s Resource Center, held in the most gorgeous space that used to be an old church, and featured speakers on a variety of topics including condom research (by my friend, former grad school office mate & colleague Dr. Scott Butler, who is an Assistant Professor at GCSU), breast health and self-exams, sexual diversity, STIs and more. I was impressed with every single speaker and delighted to find such a smart, cohesive, energetic community of sexual health researchers, educators and activists at GCSU. Any school or community would be fortunate to have such a team.
At the symposium, they gave away signed copies of my book, Because It Feels Good: A Woman’s Guide to Sexual Pleasure & Satisfaction, as door prizes. Also, everyone got to walk away with a beautifully wrapped gift bag.
Thank you, everyone, for making me feel so at home and for having me as your guest at dinner and at the symposium! I had a terrific time and hope to come back again.
