LOS ANGELES — CalExotics has announced it is sponsoring Harvard University Sex Week for the sixth consecutive year.
The company is donating products to help raise awareness about sexual health and wellness practices.
According to a rep, the week-long event strives to empower the Harvard community to explore issues of love, sex, gender, relationships and more. Sex Week begins today and runs through Sunday.
In addition, Sex Week is positioned to actively engage Harvard students in embracing, thinking about and discussing their experiences with their own sexualities.
Susan Colvin, founder and CEO of CalExotics, said, “Education is a key component to ensuring we succeed in our mission of helping people find more joy in their lives. It is simple: the more you know, the better equipped you’ll be to make good decisions when it comes to your body and overall sexual health.”
Since its inception, CalExotics has been focused on promoting sexual health and wellness through its products and educational efforts, the company reported. It is regarded as it was the first of its kind to be founded by a woman and has been instrumental in revolutionizing the pleasure products industry, with many notable accomplishments including feminizing female adult toys and providing warranties on vibrators, the company added.
“I commend Harvard as they strive to educate the younger generation,” Colvin added.
Harvard Sex Week is run by the student organization Sexual Health Education and Advocacy Throughout Harvard College (SHEATH). Their goal with Sex Week is to connect diverse individuals and communities through common human experiences and to open up a dialogue about these critical issues.
During the event, students have the opportunity to attend 12 different seminars, ranging from “Sex Toys 101: Feel Those Good Vibrations” to “Unleashed: Kink 101.”
The final workshop is focused on "Sexual Myth-Busting" and will be an interactive workshop hosted by the Board of Sex Week. To celebrate the culmination of this year’s Sex Week, the Board will be giving away a CalExotics-themed gift basket to one lucky attendee.
Lita Peña, co-president of SHEATH said, “I cannot thank CalExotics enough. They are extremely generous. The company has been such a fabulous partner of Sex Week throughout the years, and we're so excited about their amazing products.”
