Hey there, New College!
As a New College alumna, I’m truly jazzed to be welcoming you to this new school year with For Pleasure’s Sake.
There are a lot of reasons why people have sex, but fundamentally, people have sex because they want to feel good. So why are we taught to feel ashamed of our sexual desires and pleasure? You deserve pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, and in this workshop, we’ll talk about how you can make that a reality.
In this workshop, we’ll tackle:
- sexual shame
- consent and communication
- toy safety and other pleasure basics
- and how you can safely explore your desires — on your own or with partners!
NOTE: This workshop is open to new students and returners.

It’s raining out. Is this still happening on Z-Green?

Who even am I?
Hi! My name is Cassandra and I’m a sex educator. I also happen to be a New College alumna, so I know what a weird and exciting ride you’re in for. I work exclusively with college students and other adults to unlearn some of the pretty funky stuff that we picked up when we were younger. My work centers LGBTQ+ folks, is gender-expansive, and strives to be inclusive of a wide variety of experiences. I also have experience as a victims advocate, so we’ll touch on healing from trauma, too. Teaching sex ed to adults is my full-time job, and it’s super fun! You can find me on Instagram @FeministSexEd. I’m looking forward to learning with you!
