Carissa Buursma / Let's Talk About Sex
Sat 2:00pm - 2:50pm
Venue: Convo Table 11
Type of Experience: Conversation
Content Type: A Conversation about Sex/Sexuality
Conversations about sex and sexuality can be challenging to initiate and navigate, even with people close to us. Carissa is going to use questions and discussion starters to set the stage for an open conversation. She'll be prompting answers from herself and participants to questions like, \In your childhood, how was the topic of sex and sexuality approached by the adults is your life?\ \Were you taught about consent?\ \Were you encouraged to explore or celebrate your sexuality?\ \What has influenced your body image?\ \Are there people in your life today that you are able to discuss sexuality with?\ \What resources have been helpful for you in this area?\ Participants will be invited (but not expected) to join the conversation. It is Carissa's hope that participants walk away from this session with a higher level of comfort in talking about sex and sexuality in general and a higher level of comfort with their own sexuality.
