Sex Week 2014 is Feb 8th-16th at UChicago.
It's not our first time.

It's our second.

Sex Week. People always smirk when they cautiously ask what its all about. Perhaps you heard about it at Harvard or Yale, and hopefully, you’ll hear about it constantly here at the University of Chicago. It is a week of open minds, learning, art, critique, and sensuality; a week of words, ideas, and exploration. It is our safe space.

Collaborating with guest speakers, resident professors, brave students and RSOs, a team of students created a full week for you to explore. There are seminars, workshops, discussions, an art gallery, theater pieces, and ongoing tabling. We urge you to attend as many events as you can manage, and don't worry, we'll have laughter, moments of understanding, and yummy food for fuel.

Click on the Schedule & Registration tab in the top right corner to see what Sex Week 2014 has in store for you. 

Cheers,
The Sex Week Team

Sex Week aims to create an open, safe, and supportive space to discuss sex, a subject that has some importance to all of us, which can be source of excitement, passion, opinion, discomfort, shyness, or pain. We are proud to provide inclusive information and conversations around sex to our diverse community here at the University of Chicago, and want anyone with questions, even if they seem like silly questions, to ask. Please share as openly as you feel comfortable, taking care to not judge or criticize others. Talking about sex and issues surrounding it can be difficult. These discussions may involve explicit material that may make some feel uncomfortable. Know that you are free to leave events at any time and that Sex Week Team members are present to provide referral services. The University Counseling Center can offer additional support surrounding these issues. For further information, please grab a resource guide.
