Hey there, Sweet Briar!
I’m so happy to be joining you for another sex & healing event series! I loved learning with you last year, and I know that we’re going to have a great time this year, too. We have four awesome workshops planned for this year, but we’ll focus on the fall semester for now! This event series is funded by the Debby Willis ’11 Fund.

Our 2021-2022 workshops are:
Wednesday, September 8: Sex in Translation (click here to add it to your calendar)
This workshop is entirely focused on sexual communication and talking about what we like (and don’t like!) in bed. Whether you’re partnered or single, playing the field or dancing on your own, this workshop will help you get in-tune with what we want and let go of sexual shame.
Wednesday, September 15: Playing Safely (click here to add it to your calendar)
“Safety” means a lot of different things to each of us, but what does it mean when it comes to sex? In this workshop, we’ll take a shame-free look at sexual safety and how you can figure out the best safety plan for you! We’ll cover barrier methods, lube, consent, STI prevention and management, and pregnancy prevention & options.
- Wednesday, February 9: For Pleasure’s Sake (click here to add it to your calendar)
One of the main reasons why people have sex is because it feels good — so why are we so caught up in sexual shame? In this workshop, you’ll learn everything you need to know to explore sex for pleasure’s sake while still living in line with your values.
- Wednesday, April 20: Supporting Survivors (click here to add it to your calendar)
Most of us want to be helpful and supportive when our friends are going through something challenging, but knowing how to do that can be a bit tricky. In this workshop, we’ll unpack how you can best support the survivors of sexual violence in your life, including what to say (and what not to say) and how you can take care of yourself, too.
Each workshop will begin at 8:00 pm ET and take place online. The password to each event is sbc2021

Who even am I?
Hi! My name is Cassandra and I’m a sex educator. 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!
