Brittany Corprew, IOTA Sweetheart of the Eta Alpha Chapter of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated

"The purpose of this event is to create a safe space for all woman-identified individuals and allies to have an interactive dialogue about the barriers that stop and discourage women from owning their sexuality. The goal is to encourage sex positivity by honoring the belief that all sexualities and preferences are valid and acceptable. We will discuss many societally sensitive subjects such as masturbation, casual sex, minority sexual and gender identities, safe sex, porn, and kinks. We aspire to create a place where women can talk comfortably and freely about their sexuality without judgment and shame."
