Carol Queen #cconvice CatalystCon East - March 16, 2014


  1. Is it the downfall of civilization or the way people catch up on this culture’s absent sex information? Is it basically a way to use other people, or a way to learn about how to communicate well with just about anybody? Is it a disease-spreading behavior or a means to share safer sex methods with an ever-increasing circle of friends, booty calls, and fuckbuddies? Is it gendered, with a different set of possibilities for sluts vs. studs? Promiscuity: Let’s talk about it! Carol debated the topic at Oxford and revisits her experience to talk about casual sex and its potentials as well as its discontents.
