Free Speech & Diversity in Social and Intimate Situations
We live in a politically correct world that sometimes stifles honest conversation. Sex is one of the most politically incorrect subjects there is. This workshop is for curious or sex-positive adults to learn tools for communication between people of diverse groups.
Sexuality & Free Speech
Sexuality touches almost all facets of human behavior, yet it’s one of the most difficult subjects to talk about. Sex affects society in ways that are both positive and negative, but it is not often a subject for polite discussion.
Many attendees describe how refreshed and energized they felt after talking intelligently, openly, and passionately without being labeled as prejudiced when they spoke their mind or if they said a ‘trigger’ word or what we call a JISC comment (Jokes, Ignorance, Stereotype, Criticism).
The communication guidelines that form the basis of this workshop transcend geographical location. After all, people all over the world, are increasingly sensitive about conversations related to social or ethnic identity.
In our workshops, we learn easy ways to keep conversations light and fun while learning about how to deal with being offended. Instead of using examples about the usual indicators of social identity offense, such as gender or race, we use adult lifestyles to practice being offended with a JISC comment. Examples of adult lifestyles would include monogamous, polyamorous, tantra, swingers, and so on.
As an adult workshop, we try to spend part of the class talking about an edgy subject that has to do with sexuality and society.
To reach a broader audience, we are keeping our workshop as a Zoom event even after the lifting of the lockdown restrictions. In this way, you can always attend, no matter where you live in the world. Please note that all times listed are Pacific Time, PST.
Our Hedonisia DFS Business Communication Workshop is less risqué. For obvious reasons, corporations and organizations may not want workshops with adult content, so our business workshops are adjusted accordingly.
