LOS ANGELES — Sexual health advocate and exclusive Wicked Pictures contract performer Jessica Drake is sponsoring the sex worker summit and meetup today and tomorrow at CatalystCon. She will also appear on the panel “Beautism and Sexuality: How Society’s Representation of Beauty and Image Impact Sexual Self-Expression” on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. (PDT).
“The theme for the sex worker summit and meetup is ‘Surviving and Thriving’ and we will focus on growth and community. I am honored to sponsor these events and to be included on the panel where I will be able to share my thoughts on the role beauty and image play in sexual expression,” Drake said. “Everyone faces pressure about how they look and how they are perceived based on appearance. I am looking forward to creating greater awareness about this issue!”
A rep explained, “The panel will focus on human interaction and the role image plays in all encounters including how sexual partners are chosen, which is largely influenced by societal standards of beauty, and why those who don’t meet the standards are often overlooked as sexual beings.”
CatalystCon will be held May 4-6 at The Westin Los Angeles Airport, 5855 W. Century Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90045. For tickets and registration information, click here.
Drake, star of the 2018 XBIZ Award-winning title “An Inconvenient Mistress,” is also nominated for two accolades at the upcoming XRCO Awards: Best Actress and Mainstream Favorite.
