Beyond the Birds & Bees: Ask Anything!

Midori creates a safe space for students to ask for information and resources to empower them to make safe and informed decisions while addressing and reducing common fears, prejudice, misinformation and anxieties.

A class specifically designed for the undergraduate population and ideally suited for sexual health week, orientation, students groups as well as sexual minority groups. Midori creates a safe space for students to ask for information and resources to empower them to make safe and informed decision while addressing and reducing common fears, prejudice, misinformation and anxieties. She will provide tips on asking and giving consent in fun and positive ways as well as encourage open and honest dialogue regarding sex and healthy relationships without shame. This program serves to educate the campus community about safer sex, clear consent, and to encourage members to make informed decisions regarding their bodies and relationships.
Students will anonymously submit questions using question cards. Midori will address each question, using anatomical models, dolls, visual aids and age/population appropriate language.
Often promoted with cheeky, fun and enticing wordings, such as...
"Ask anything about sex! Really - anything. Strange? Fascinating? Kinky or wild? Want to know how to be a great lover and be great in bed?? Anonymously submit your questions and watch Midori share tricks, tips, tales of spectacular fail - she may even perform advice and skits with her trusted side-kicks."
*Note to administrators: "side-kicks" mentioned above are dolls.
