Half-day workshops for young women
Question: How do I know whether this workshop is right for me?
Answer: This workshop is for females heading off to college in the fall and for those who are 18 to 25 years old. It’s right for you if you are interesting in learning to get a better sense what you want with your sexual self, when and why you want to say “yes” and “no” to various sexual activities, and practice in saying “yes” and “no” in your voice. Much of the workshop is discussion based, and you will not be asked to disclose any specifics about your own sexual activities. Rather the workshop focuses on topics such as why (and why not) you engaged in given sexual activities, what you want out of sexual activity, and what factors might make it hard for you to say “no” or “yes”—in other words, to be clear about what you want.
Question: What is the time commitment for this workshop?
Answer: It is a one-time, 3-hour workshop. There is a 10-minute break in the middle. Feel free to bring a snack and a drink if you like.
Question: Can I bring a friend?
Answer: Because space is limited, it is best to have your friend register online; if the workshop is full, your friend can register for the workshop on a different date.
