CatalystCon East Closing Keynote Plenary Address: Afternoon Tea with Carol Queen & Robert Lawrence

Sunday, March 17, 2013 8:30pm #cconCK Panelists Carol Queen, Robert Morgan Lawrence


  1. Drs. Carol Queen and Robert Lawrence wear many hats: They are one of sexology’s long-term couples, polyamorous life partners and founding directors of San Francisco’s Center for Sex & Culture. Before they made a home at CSC, they roamed the country teaching alt-sex skills at any venue that would host them and once taught a fisting workshop on a tarp-covered pool table. They’re the founders of the live, public Masturbate-a-Thon and the stars of Bend Over Boyfriend. In 2009 the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence Sainted them for their work in the community.

    When not joined at the hip, Robert is a disabled veteran with a lot to say about sex and disability (and everything else) who’s working on a book about sexual anatomy (he’s been lecturing on these topics since 1973), and Carol is Staff Sexologist at Good Vibrations, an award-winning author, and a two-time Grand Marshal at San Francisco Pride who debated “Promiscuity: Virtue or Vice?” at Oxford.

    Join them for tea and conversation as they host the CatalystCon East closing keynote and share a lifetime of sex-ed renegade fun and a special call to action for a new generation that wants to make their own life’s work on the path of sex education and pleasure activism.

    The closing keynote is sponsored by Sportsheets International.
