Radical Self Love

  • 4251 Forest Park Avenue St. Louis, MO, 63108 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Social media, structural oppression, and busy lives, are just some of the things that send us daily messages that we are not beautiful, worthy, or lovable. It’s important for us to intentionally unpack these negative and false messages so that we can have a healthy relationship with ourselves and others. Daily practices of self love are a way to remind ourselves that we are more than what society tells us. What are the thoughts that you have about yourself? Where are those thoughts coming from? How can you reject unhelpful thoughts and replace them with ones that empower you? In this workshop we will discuss the importance of romancing yourself and accepting and loving your mind, body, and soul just as it is today. We will:

  • Learn how thoughts about yourself guide the way that you tend to behave and treat yourself
  • Discuss what the best you looks like and the qualities you would like to improve
  • Create a personalized Self Love Care Plan that will help you practice self love daily

This workshop is for Planned Parenthood's TASH (Teen Advocates for Sexual Health) Group

From erotic porn to candlelit baths, explore what stimulates you and leads to the discovery of your authentic and most erotic self. In this sexshop we will:

Claiming the Right to Sexual Pleasure

The Pleasure of Black Folk: Empowerment through Sex Education

The Pleasure of Black Folk: Empowerment through Sex Education

Oppressive structures and stereotypes about the Black body and sexuality have limited and negatively impacted Black people and their sexual agency. For some Black people, sexual autonomy, pleasure, and discovery are foreign, unmentionable, and rejected. This is evident as one observes the Black female experience with masturbation and the Black male’s relationship with anal play. As current sex education models focus either on abstinence or sexual health, learners are not empowered to have sexual agency. Pleasure based sex education models provide accurate information about sexuality, sexual acts, and body positivity; and increase sexual self-agency. This panel will explore Black sexual empowerment through discussing masturbation, anal play, and pleasured based models.

Can I Talk to You?: Mothers & Daughters on Sex

As women some of the first messages we receive around body image, sex, love, and relationships come from the older women in our families, in particular our mothers. These messages tend to influence self perceptions, behaviors, and our interactions with others. Daughters already have ideas or experiences around sexuality and want to know that their mothers are available to answer questions and give advice when needed. Mothers want their daughters to grow into the confident, sexually empowered women, they are capable of being. Come learn skills to develop healthy and open communication styles between mothers and daughters around topics related to sexuality. In this sexshop we will:
- discuss barriers to open communication around sexuality
learn several new communication skills that encourage openness

- explore the types of questions mothers & daughters have about sexuality
- write letters to one another about building their relationships

*We would like to see mothers & daughters come together, but this workshop is open to all interested women and girls

Cultural Cliteracy: Taking Black Female Sexuality into Your Own Hands

For some Black women, sexual autonomy, pleasure, and discovery are not only foreign practices but are unmentionable and rejected as well. Masturbation, a radical act of self-love and exploration, is too often met with guilt, shame, and fear. This session will review the research of sexual autonomy and Black Women, by examing Women in Blues, Black women’s literature, art, and analyze how participants have been socialized to consider the topic. From Bessie Smith to Audre Lorde, Black bodies experiencing pleasure have been explored as a tool of empowerment and liberation on micro to macro levels. Incorporation of these healing and liberating stories can inform and assist sexuality educators as they work to build sex positive Black communities. 

This presentation is a part of The Association of Black Sexologists and Clinicians' Black Families, Black Relationships, Black Sexuality Conference: Building and Strengthening Our Community. Workshop will be held Oct 2 from 2:00-2:50PM.
