What they say about geeks, sex, relationships and hooking up just isn't true: we ARE hot and nerdy, and when it comes to events like SXSWi we could all use a little "booty call boot camp". Anyone can read sex ed basics online, but when you're faced with real-life situations and the nuances of quirky geeks who are smarter than the average hottie, and have that irresistible OCD, you'll need to know more than how to Google a pickup line or navigate a smooth SXSWi afterparty fling. In this talk, leading sex educator Violet Blue explains: * Sexual health basics, including safer sex 101. * Exactly how to have a smooth negotiation about safer sex. * Rules and tips for geek flirting. * Do's and Don'ts of picking up on geeks. * Sex etiquette and social media. * How to have a great one-nighter and feel happy saying hi in the halls the next day. * Navigating honesty (and health issues) when someone is cheating. * Consent: saying yes and no to sex with clarity and coolness. * How to have a hot time without pissing off your hotel roommates. * Why geeks are better lovers, and how to attract a geek. * Geek-specific suggestions for seeing each other after SXSW. While heterosexually focused in scope, this presentation will be inclusive of all genders and orientations. Includes a handout of recommendations for a Geek Sexual Survival Kit.
