Yes, All Genders: How to Normalize and Include Trans Bodies and Pleasure in Adult Sex Ed
August 16, 2019 @ 2:45 pm - 4:15 pm
While trans rights are making huge strides globally at present, many sexual health and pleasure resources for adults still reference “male” and “female” sexuality in ways that link genitals with gender experience. Transgender men, women, and non-binary individuals-as well as their partners-are often left out of sexuality workshops and sexual health messaging, in part because educators aren’t sure how to best address their needs without alienating a general audience.
Transgender sex educators Alex S. Morgan and Liam Marcus have crisscrossed North America, testing different approaches and terminology in the name of making adult sex education accessible and relevant for both transgender, gender-questioning, and gender non-conforming individuals and their partners.
In a society that often does its best to divorce trans people from their bodies and reinforces the message that trans people are unworthy of love, treating trans bodies as normal and desirable—and trans pleasure as important and worth discussing—is a revolutionary act. From best practices in choosing inclusive language to adapting exercises to reduce the odds of triggering dysphoria, Alex and Liam will share what’s worked across North America.
