Backroom Revolutionaries: How Sex Shop Workers Became the Gatekeepers of the Sexual Revolution
In the workshop we’ll discuss common questions sex shop customers have for educators, ways you can connect with sex shops to create mutually beneficial relationships, and the role sex shops play in helping “newbies” find their sexual identity and communities to support them. Most importantly we’ll explore why it’s important to work with and support the sex shops you know and trust. By the end of this session participants will understand how they can work with sex shops to reach a wider audience. Participants will get some best-practices on approaching & working with sex shops and they will have ideas on which sex shops to approach for collaborations.
