Let’s Talk About Sex: How a New Generation Navigates Hookups, Porn, Love & Consent

October 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Peggy Orenstein, author of the New York Times best-sellers Girls & Sex and Boys & Sex combines her research with voices of teens (as well as those between or beyond genders), to discuss the impact on high school and college students’ sexual scripts of mainstream media, social media and porn; hookup culture; changing expectations around consent (and why “consent education” is not enough); the politics of sexual pleasure; the diversity of sexual orientations; gender socialization and power dynamics; the importance of connection. With humor and compassion, she separates myth from reality, ultimately giving parents, educators and advocates the conversational tools they need to ensure safe, pleasurable, mutually satisfying sexual encounters and intimate relationships.
