Navigating Hookup Culture can be awkward and uncomfortable, which is one reason why SAMRU is hosting its 3rd annual Sexpo Week and is offering two free, virtual workshops featuring activities and education around sexual health and sexuality. In these workshops, you will learn how communication, consent, and safe sex practices can help make navigating hookup culture a breeze.
The two Sexpo Week Workshops are done in collaboration with workshop hosts from Venus Envy. Venus Envy is a Canadian sex shop and bookstore that values inclusive sex education and believes that everyone should have the right to accurate information, shame-free exploration, and consensual pleasure.
