Behind Closed Doors

Thursday | February 16 | 6:30-8pm NEW TIME 

CCC Comunidad

Remember that awkward conversation you had with family when you were younger about "the birds and the bees"? Well we'll be having a conversation like that, but better! Lea from the Rubber Rose will be coming to talk about safe sex and the various products she sells ranging from lubricants to sex toys. The Rubber Rose is a local adult boutique determined to radicalize the sex toy industry and people's vision of the fluidity of human sexuality. Their mission is to facilitate community growth in the worlds of art, activism, and adult sexuality. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to email me at jnetperez@gmail.com.
