SAN FRANCISCO — Good Vibrations' Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen is on the east coast this week for a series of appearances at colleges, festivals, and at the Good Vibrations' retail store in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Following her presentation delivered at Simmons College on Oct. 7, “The story of sex-positive culture: how ideas about sexual freedom and diversity became a movement," Queen was then sheduled to head off to MIT on Oct. 8 to speak to the graduate consortium in women's studies.
Entitled “What Women and Other People Need From Dirty Movies,” Good Vibrations said Queen will explore what porn teaches about sexuality, gender roles, and norms and asks "what people want from smut."
College students can catch Queen in a more informal setting at CollegeFest on Oct. 12 and 13 where she will be answering sex questions and discussing sex and safety. Visitors to the Good Vibrations booth can spin the "Wheel of Pleasure" and win free prizes to compliment their education.
Queen will also deliver a presentation on “The Top 10 Little-Known Facts About Sex and Pleasure” at the Good Vibrations Brookline store on Oct. 14 that examines fun facts about sexual arousal and response, technique, and anatomy.
"I'm delighted to participate in the current conversation about sex, education and culture, and these are great opportunities to reach a variety of people. Whether it's at MIT or Good Vibrations, I look forward to a lot of meaningful conversations and exciting exchange of ideas," Queen said.
