The “Sex Positive” movement took over City College in February, when a foursome of student clubs sponsored an event to educate and discuss gender, relationships and sex in a safe and judgment-free environment. The four-day event leading up to Valentine’s Day featured a series of open and honest discussions on sex-related topics ranging from porn to safe sex practices to nude dancers’ unionization.
One of the more popular speakers — and more controversial — was Janet Hardy, co-author of The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures. Her arguments were engaging and disquieting. They forced self-reflection on personal biases and our understandings about the laws of sexual attraction.
