What´s the fuss about sex?
Reflections on sexuality and gender on the Internet age
· University students from all areas interested in taking part in the cross-cutting discussion on sexuality and gender;
· Students of applied social sciences of the area of communication (design, fashion, publicity, marketing) with focus in UX and storytelling;
· Public and private organizations attentive to social observation and interested in the patterns of human behavior in sexuality, gender, prejudice and diversity;
If SEX is such a big part of our lives, why are we still not talking about it?
Some even think SEX can be a sin, a signal, subversion or sell a bunch of stuff. So many questions, few answers and a lot of anxietyIt is a fact that still today in many cultures SEX defines who has privileges and rights - not to say the right to live. In others, people are not allowed by law to have “intimate” relations with same SEX partners or even talk about that. We need to talk about sex, gender, desire, about doing it or what are we doing about it.
And also: the issues of health, violence, rights, prejudice, identities, consumerism, diversity, pop culture, other possibilities and everything in between.
If SEX still causes such a commotion,
why the poker face?
Let´s talk about it!
