Don’t miss this fascinating excursion into the correlated questions of our time, including:
  • What conjunction of cultural and political forces has caused the misalignment of sex and health we have observed in the “AIDS Era”?  
  • Why did allopathic interpretations of the crisis become dominant so early?  
  • How have practices of love evolved since then?  
  • What communities have continued to be ‘sex-positive’ and how have they intersected?  
  • How have these practices co-evolved with a new notion of health?  With holistic practices of health?  
  • With environmental notions of planetary health?  
  • Why is the body and ecosystem and how can we practice love in respect of its balance and health? 
  • How does the respect for our bodies’ ecosystems align with the respect for Gaia,, or ‘mother earth’?
  • Why (and to what extent) is anal pleasure good for one’s health?  
  • How has the LGBT community grown and diversified in the AIDS Era?  
  • What did bisexual people  bring to the sex positive movement?  
  • What is it like to position oneself ‘in between’ gays and straights as one navigates the AIDS Era?  
  • What new paradigms can emerge from this experience? 
  • What new politics of love can help to realign sex with health?  
  • What do we really mean by holistic sexual health?
