CatalystCon West Reports Success

LOS ANGELES — More than 350 attendees reportedly gathered in Los Angeles from September 11-14 for the CatalystCon West sexuality conference.

Created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality, the event featured 40 sessions and workshops on topics such as erotica, sex toy history and materials, sex work, and sex positive parenting, as well as live podcast recordings in the CatalystCon Studio. Described by founder and organizer Dee Dennis as a “melting pot of sexuality,” CatalystCon unites sex educators, sex workers, health advocates, writers, activists, and others with a passion for creating change.

“I’m excited about the success of this conference and the continued growth and evolution of CatalystCon,” said Dennis. “From the debut of the CatalystCon Film Series on Thursday night and the presence of a true catalyst like Kristin Beck and her film ‘Lady Valor’ through to the emotional and inspiring reunion of Club 90 at the Closing Keynote, I believe that this weekend sparked exactly the kinds of conversations that I hoped for when I created CatalystCon.”

CatalystCon returns to the east coast on March 27-29, 2015 at the Hilton Crystal City.

CatalystCon East is accepting speaker submissions until November 4, 2014 at www.catalystcon.com/call-for-speakers.
