Sex educator Friedman to talk at LCSC on Jan. 30
The Warrior Entertainment Board is bringing internationally known sex educator Jay Friedman to Lewis-Clark State College for his lecture performance, entitled "The J-Spot: A Sex Educator Tells All" on Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. at the Williams Conference Center.
Far from a doom and gloom presentation, Friedman's lecture will entertain while educating his audience about important and timely sexuality issues. The event is free and open to the public.
This event also includes informational booths before and after the performance from LCSC Security, LCSC Student Health, North Central District Health Department, YWCA, and Planned Parenthood of the Inland Northwest. Pizza will be available free of charge to LCSC Students with their WarriorOne Cards at 5:30 p.m.
"The J-Spot: A Sex Educator Tells All" is Friedman’s newest lecture performance. A recent reviewer raved that “It’s a lecture performance a la The Vagina Monologues that provokes as it electrifies audiences about the things everyone cares about: sex and relationships…. This is an educational and entertaining event better than any class on campus."
"Unfortunately, we live in a sex-negative, sex-repressed, and sex-phobic society which has trouble talking about sex and which provides inadequate sex education," Friedman asserts. "My goal is to give a thought-provoking, conversation-creating and perhaps life-changing performance that breaks the taboos in talking about sex. If people can be more open, I’m sure we’d avoid the dangers that result from sexual ignorance, and instead enjoy healthy relationships and more pleasurable sexual lives."
Friedman's presentation is poignant, powerful, playful, and provocative. “People call me a sexual provocateur,” explains Friedman, “My performance is at times personal, philosophical, political and prophetic. The storytelling, the cultural observations, the predictions—they’re all relevant to the students’ lives, getting them to perk up, laugh a lot, and also learn.”
Friedman addresses topics with sensitivity and playful humor. Audiences can expect to learn such things as:
•? The three conditions to meet before you're ready to have sex
• ?The truth about whether men really explode if they don't have sex
• ?The mysteriously missing sexual organ
•? How to make condoms feel oh-so-much better
• ?Cross-cultural comparisons between the U.S. and other countries on sexual matters
• ?The state of sex education in the U.S.—including life as a sex educator
Friedman, who has been nominated multiple times as "Lecturer of the Year" by the National Association for Campus Activities, is professionally-certified as a sex educator by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).
Friedman is an award-winning writer featured in a number of national publications, and a former disc jockey and host of a radio talk show on relationships. Based in Seattle, Friedman travels campus to campus to share his insights and outbursts on sex and relationships.
