Our ability to give, receive, and respond to pleasure is largely dictated by our sense of emotional and physical well-being. From a very basic physiological perspective, if you don’t feel safe – physically, emotionally, or psychologically – your sexual function simply doesn’t function. Or, certainly not as well as it could/should. There are a LOT of stressors in our Western lifestyle that can impact our sexual experience, many of which go unnoticed because they are so common and normalized. One ongoing and all pervasive stressor for POC that often gets overlooked is that of racism, and the impact of racism on the physical, mental, emotional, and sexual well-being of POC.Join Devi Ward Erickson and Mental health professional, Chioma Janelle, as they discuss the impact of racism on BIPOC mental health and how that can affect our sexual experience.Find out about:*How intergenerational trauma manifests and replicates itself.*The effects of colonization in fostering Trauma*How Trauma affects our nervous system, relationships and how we relate and connect to one another*Healing from “The superwoman syndrome”*The power of Black resilience*How POC ACTUALLY find healing vs what’s currently offered in the available systems of “healing”*How Black bodies are misdiagnosed due to racism and overwhelm*Using Black Feminist approach as a way of healing- using community and collective space, creativity, and PLEASUREJoin us for this AASECT Award winning show.

According to recent studies, approximately 91% of cis-gender women are unhappy with their bodies. I too have spent most of my life at war with my physical body, attempting to starve and “cleanse” it into an idealized concept of beauty that only 5% of the population represents.But all that has changed for me recently. I no longer feel a need to punish my body for not conforming to Hollywood’s standards of beauty. I no longer need to starve, cleanse, or raw food my body into submission. I have jiggles, and cellulite, and stretch marks, and a big, giant, juicy butt that doesn’t fit into a size 6 pair of jeans anymore, and for the first time in my life, I DON’T HATE MYSELF because of this.Now I look in the mirror and see beauty in the swells and curves. The ROUNDNESS of my belly, my hips, my thighs has become a thing to admire, as opposed to a source of self-recrimination and disgust.So, I wanted to talk about this new found inner peace and body acceptance. How did I go from feeling tortured by and hating my body, to feeling peace, ease, and body -love?Join me and my friend and colleague, Rosie Bitts as we discuss how to free yourself from the shackles of body shame that this society imposes upon us, and her upcoming book project “Body-Love”.We discuss:*The origins of body shame and how society conditions us for self-hatred*The role that trauma plays in body shame*How the “wellness” industry reinforces body shame*Healing your brain with diversity*How our partner’s influence body shame and acceptance* How 5 Element Tantra has helped heal our body shameTune in to this AASECT award winning show!
