Denison University’s Laura C. Harris Series welcomes Heather Corinna and Hanne Blank presenting “Sex Ed for the Real World: A Conversation with Heather Corinna and Hanne Blank.”
Corinna created the first independently run, feminist, sex-positive, politically aware youth and young adult sexual health resource on the Internet, Scarleteen.com. Corinna and a small army of volunteers have, in that time, provided sexuality and sexual health information for anyone seeking it within a decidedly feminist, LGBTQIA+-inclusive, non-alarmist, politically left of center, youth-affirming, consent-driven context. Corinna’s work is a precious, rare model of what feminist sex education and sexual health education in the public interest can look like, and their “sex ed for the real world” workshops are extremely well suited toward the college audience. A self-described “queer, rabblerousing, polymath,” Corinna has advocated for accepting the diverse forms of sexual experience and avoiding “expertitis.” Corinna is the author of “s.e.x. the all-you-need-to-know sexuality guide to get you through your teens and twenties.”
Workshop: “Mutually Inclusive: Self Defense Against Selfish Sexuality” at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 8, in the Boardroom of Barney-Davis Hall.
