The Young Women’s Leadership Project at the AGI to host the ‘Talking Sexual Pleasure’ campaign from 27 February 2012 to 1 March 2012
The Young Women’s Leadership Project at the African Gender Institute (University of Cape Town) will host a range of events under the campaign, ‘Talking Sexual Pleasure’ happening from Monday 27 February 2012 to Thursday 1 March 2012.
The campaign will be launched on Monday 27 February 2012 between 13:00hrs- 14:00hrs at the Jammie Steps at the University of Cape Town with the distribution of pamphlets outlining key issues of the campaign as well as a programme for the week. Also at the launch of the campaign, ‘the purple woman’ who represents the ‘voice’ of the campaign will be introduced.
On Tuesday 29 February 2012, there will be a panel discussion on ‘Religion and Sexuality’ with Pastor Alan Storey and Dr. Annie Leatt from the UCT Religious Studies department. This thought provoking discussion will look at how different religions (Christianity and Buddhism) look at female sexuality, desire and sexual pleasure. This event will take place between 13:00hrs – 14:00hrs at the Centre for African Studies [CAS] Seminar Room 3.01 (Harry Oppenheimer Building, UCT).
ATTENTION: Due to unforseen circumstances, the documentary screening and discussion which was scheduled for Wednesday 29 February 2012 at the Centre for African Studies Gallery, Oppenheimer Building, University of Cape Town between 17:00hrs and 19:30hrs has been cancelled. The AGI apologises for any inconveniences caused.
The programme comes to a close on Thursday 2 March 2012 with two events; a ‘Men’s Sexuality’ dialogue facilitated by Robert Hamblin (CAS Seminar Room 3.01, Harry Oppenheimer Building, UCT) between 13:00hrs – 14:00hrs and a ‘Sexual Tools Workshop’ facilitated by Whet Emporium (CAS Gallery, Harry Oppenheimer Building, UCT) between 17:00hrs – 20:00hrs. The ‘Men’s Sexuality Dialogue’ is aimed at surfacing what men believe and feel about (women’s and/or their partner’s, their own) sexual pleasure and desire outside the context of individual relationships, the social setting or men only places. The ‘Sexual Tools Workshop’ consists of a Whet Emporium pleasure ware demonstration and facilitated discussion on women’s questions and issues around their experiences of sexual pleasure, intimacy, desire, their bodies and relationships.
