Spoon Me, Fork Me: An Evening of Sensual Pleasures


(photo by Ben Fink, in The New InterCourses book)

Come to a delicious evening of sensual pleasures!

(PLEASE RSVP to brownsheec@gmail.com, though drop-ins are welcome. We just want to know how many people approx. plan on attending!)

Learn how to please lovers in bed with a workshop by Megan Andelloux focusing on the art of oral sex (a combination of Fabulous Fellatio and Female Sexual Pleasure), then partake in a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres (based on traditional aphrodisiacs) and chocolate fondue to stimulate your palate. We’ll have a raffle and finish off the evening with a foreign film that beautifully synthesizes the magical qualities of sex, food, and sensuality (Like Water for Chocolate). Certainly an evening not to miss!

Sex Week 2010 Buttons

I love buttons. I’ve always wanted a button-making contraption, but those things were expensive and it’s not like I was going to make 1,000 buttons a month, so I never got one.

BUT BROWN HEALTH ED HAS ONE. And they make really cool buttons. Because I chair SHEEC and Sex Week, I get to design some fun ones to hand out (or sell to fundraise? maybe?). Here they are, so look forward to seeing them around campus this coming week! (Hehe, coming week.)

Sex Week 2010 Poster

My goals in creating a poster:

  • Wouldn’t imply a certain relationship status
  • Wouldn’t be objectifying and just like any other ad on TV
  • Wouldn’t be heteronormative (and ideally not homonormative, either, which is…not easy to do–most images out there are very either/or)
  • Would simultaneously bring something “non-traditional” to the fore but NOT in a “LOOK HOW RADICAL I AM!” way or in a “LOOK HOW FREAKY THIS IS!” way
  • Would focus on sexuality and sensuality, but in a fun, not intimidating, fashion
  • Re: above, would also not be too explicit or obviously and “traditionally” sexual, so that it could have more interpretations (including “platonic” ones?)
  • Would reflect an air of inclusiveness
  • Would not represent people from just one ethnic group (and this was the hardest to achieve while still trying to keep to the other points; I resolved this issue by making the skin tones a rainbow)
  • Would not glorify a particular body type, especially one that corresponds to the dominant ideas of beauty in the media
  • Would be welcoming and attractive
  • Would hold all the text necessary!

The RESULT:
