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

  • Yeyo Arts 2907 South Jefferson Avenue Saint Louis, MO, 63118 United States (map)

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
