The Future of Sex: As Told by Women

Mar 14, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

The world of sex has been historically driven by cisgender white men and often stories told from the male lens. But we’re already seeing a major shift as underrepresented voices begin to lead this space from all different aspects and ushering a new wave of sexual wellness and pleasure for all.
We’ve gathered thought leaders from very unique and wide perspectives of sex: an engineer in sextech, a sex researcher, founder of a sex-positive video platform, and a sex & relationship therapist to discuss what it’s like to innovate in this space, the changes that are still needed to foster a cultural shift around the taboo, and predict the future of sex in science, research, and culture.
