Sex Ed Disco: Building Exploratory, Healthy, and Consensual Connections with samantha bitty
The Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre (SVPS Centre) at the University of Toronto works collaboratively with all divisions and campuses to create a campus environment where all members of our community can study, work, and live free from sexual violence.
That’s why we’re thrilled to welcome Sexual Health Educator samantha bitty to all three UofT campuses as a keynote speaker for orientation 2022. Join this conversation to talk about pleasure, sexual health, and building meaningful, consensual relationships.
Disco is a blueprint for bold exploration, creation, joy, pleasure, self-expression and liberation. Sex Ed Disco, with sexual health and consent educator samantha bitty, captures the spirit of this era in an engaging discussion of crafting consensual connections, pleasure permission, and liberated sexual and romantic well-being.
