Northridge — The Pride Center of the University Student Union (USU) will present a series of compelling workshops and programs during “Sex Week” from Monday, March 12 to Thursday, March 15 to encourage open and honest conversations about sexual health, body positivity and sexual wellness. In collaboration with Queer Collective and Tarzana Treatment Centers, this highly informative event welcomes the CSUN LGBTQ community and their allies to talk about sex in a safe and inclusive environment. Join us for educational workshops and fun events to be held in various locations at the USU!
“We are more than happy to bring back this event for CSUN students,” said Serena Hinton, Pride Center Student Assistant and Event Lead for ‘Sex Week’. “Talking about sex can be uncomfortable. That’s why our goal for this event is to provide a safe, welcoming environment for students to learn more about sexual health and wellness without fearing judgment from others.”
At “Sex Week”, students can check out intriguing events each day in the USU. On Monday, March 12, you can come to the East Conference Center (ECC) to check out a resource fair in the Lakeview Terrace Room and a sex toy workshop in the Flintridge Room, presented by a local adult store, A Touch of Romance. On Tuesday, March 13, Dr. Bobbie Emetu, CSUN Assistant Professor in Health Sciences, will deliver an interactive keynote speech on safe sex practices along with a discussion on HIV and STI prevention in the Pride Center at the Sol Center. Also on Tuesday, Tarzana Treatment Centers will provide an HIV prevention workshop in the Pasadena Room in the ECC while the Pride Center will show a screening of the award-winning movie, “Tangerine”, later in the evening.
On Wednesday, March 14, students can channel their inner superstar at Kinky Karaoke Nights hosted by the Pride Center in the Games Room. On Thursday, March 15, A Touch of Romance will present two workshops in the Pasadena Room during the afternoon. The first workshop will talk about body positivity and finding sexual confidence while the second will be an introduction to BDSM basics. Throughout the week, A Touch of Romance staff will be available at the Pride Center to answer questions about the sex toys they will have on display. Rapid HIV testing will also be available on Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m in the Shadow Hills Room.
