MILWAUKEE SHARE KICKOFF EVENT with Twanna Hines
They Didn't Teach THAT In School: True Adventures in Real-World Sex
At Hybrid Lounge, 707 E Brady St, Milwaukee, WI 53202
$5.00 COVER CHARGE AT THE DOOR, NO RESERVATIONS REQUIRED
Learning about sex in the real world can be messy, thrilling, embarrassing, funny, scary, and confusing-- often all within the same hour! Too often, our school and home education leaves us knowing "too little, too late" about sex and intimate relationships, and we're left in the dark trying to muddle out the details.
Join award-winning presenter Twanna Hines, along with the staff of the Tool Shed and other local storytellers, as they share tales about the things they wish they'd been told about sex and relationships, as well as exciting truths they've learned along the way. These stories-- at turns hilarious, poignant, and compelling-- celebrate the joys, wonders, and complexities of our bodies and relationships, while highlighting the importance of ongoing sex education throughout our lives.
Come listen to shared experiences and enjoy additional entertainment throughout the evening, including live sex trivia, free prizes, and lots of laughs.
