In my "About Janet" section, I wrote this...
"She uses subversive tactics to usurp our society’s pathetic sexuality status quo.
Janet is called to overturn the oppressive and repressive sexuality tables our society has set up for us. She challenges with creative and innovative group conversations the lack of sexuality awareness we have in our community and the participants leave with a greater understanding of who they are as sexual beings."
I love referencing Jesus because he saw when he entered the temple courtyard the ways the people were being swindled and robbed. These were the poor whom humbling were trying to get close to God, and the merchants with using unfair balances to deceive and obtain greater financial gain (the people whom traveled from afar would need to purchase their offering in the temple courtyard.)
I see this similar deception in our society around sexuality. The guilt and shame that are the products of confused sexuality are guiding our sexuality instead of concepts like honesty, consent, pleasure, safety, and non-exploitive.*
When we operate our sexuality from guilt and shame... ultimately repression, what can we expect to see? We see daily child sexual abuse, sexual assault, sexual orientation denials and violence, and sexual deceit in cases like infidelity.
I grew into my sexuality through my pleasure. I subverted my sexual understanding when I decided to give my fullest attention to the only God-given organ that is used for sexual pleasure... clitoris! When women chose to touch themselves, that's sexual subversion.
And in creating spaces where we can openly talk about sexuality without fear of judgment, shaming, and violence, that's my sexuality subversion I offer for YOU. That is what San Antonio Embracing Sexuality is. Creating creative, playful, enlightening spaces for conversation to happen where before has never existed.
As long as society chooses to keep sexuality in the dark, in the closet, dirty and nasty, it will result in great harm.
Let's be subversive. Join me in my sexuality subversion! Be a Sexuality Subversionary with me! Let's show the world that we aren't afraid of who we are and how we live and love. Let's talk about Sexuality and touch ourselves in direct opposition to what our mothers/fathers/church told us. Let's show them what is possible... being Visionary about Talking about Sexuality!
