The discussion started with reading through the guidelines of discussion that we put together and encouraging critic towards the list as we want it to reflect the needs of all the people in the group. Please feel free to comment on the guidelines here on the blog as well.
The topic for this time was "sexuality as a process" where we talked about how our intial sexual or pre-sexual views have changed through different stages of our lives. We had problems to define what a sexual act actually means/is, even though the first sexual experience generally was described as the first intercourse, or sex with another person. We touched subjects such as feelings of expectation, how to know what you want, saying no in contrast to being asked, flirting as empowerment and what to think about your own non-PC sexual fantasies.
The group also got a voluntary homework, where they were asked to describe a recent sexual experience (with or without partner) in words. Also to use three aspects as guidelines for describing the experience, emotional response, physical response, and actions/communication. How they felt that their expectations about the act had been met and why? The second part of the homework was to describe one of the most amazing sexual experiences the person has ever had in the same way. ;)
Feel free to do this homework by yourself, and feel free to post it on the blog or send it to us. It is voluntary to leave in the homework and some of them will be read anonomously before the discussion in the end of this month (feb).
Thank you to all the participants of the discussion, thank you for sharing your experiences, for being so amazing brave people.

V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations.
