Event Description

Based on the core insights of liberation philosophy and sex-positivity, this workshop introduces a basic framework for viewing sexual, intimate, and social interactions through a power-informed lens. It covers the ever-shifting and context-based nature of power, the way power can impact consent, and the responsibilities of being in both up-power and down-power roles. Through scenario analysis, real-world examples, and dyad exercises, students learn the core skills for navigating power dynamics in sexual scenarios: noticing and naming where power lies, somatically sensing when power has been conferred on them or they’ve projected power onto others, and using pauses, invitations, and simple phrases to mitigate possible harm. Students walk away with a fresh new lens for understanding and engaging in intimacy!
