Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards
April 4th-6th, 2013
Wednesday April 3rd: Pre-Awards Special Presentation with Dr Carol Queen
Absexuals and Erotophobes: Why They Hate Us for Our Freedom
Erotophobes understand themselves as normal – a word they favor. They have plenty of cultural support for this as residents of a society which borrows heavily in its norms from a restrictive history. An absexual –sort of an erotophobe on steroids—takes these views about problematic (or dirty, perverted, obscene) sex into more radical territory. Both types decry porn, and often sexual variety. Why do erotic freedom, and sexually explicit culture, threaten their worldview? Cultural sexologist Carol Queen PhD offers a stimulating discussion about these people's anti-sex theory and practice – and their effect on the world pro-sex activists seek to create.
Location: University College, 15 Kings College Circle, Room UC144. 7-9pm. $35
Co-sponsored by Sexual Diversity Studies at UofT. All Genders Welcome.
