Let’s Talk About Sex: Sexversations Are Happening at the HUB

Let’s talk about sex, baby.

For one night and one night only tonight, the Center for Women Students will host a Sexversations ® event in the HUB. Stop by Heritage Hall at 6:30 p.m. tonight to see your student activity fee at work and to join in on healthy conversations about sex and related topics.

“It will be fun, interactive, and not boring at all,” said Jennifer Pencek of the Center for Women Students.

She’s got a point. Sexversations ® describes itself as a “sexy, entertaining educational tool that’s all about inspiring straight talk and clever discussions about sex, intimacy, relationships, safety, sexuality, and questions to open your mind and challenge your conference.”

Kelly Addington and Becca Tieder, the founders of the sexual assault organization One Student created the Sexversations ® card game to “encourage honest, healthy conversations about sex.” The game is also intended to “enhance your sexual literacy, sexual well-being, and sexual health, and help you learn more about yourself, others, and how to become safer, more secure, and sexually empowered.”

This is a great opportunity to learn about what truly constitutes consent, how to ask for it, and how to interact with each other once you have it, so come out to the HUB tonight and join the conversation — er, Sexversation. This is just one of the events that the Center for Women Students will host this year, and you can check out the rest of the events in series on their website.
