Toolbox Sex Talk: Name and Reclaim Your Junk Workshop! Saturday, July 30th

Toolbox Reclaim

Hey peeps! It’s time for another sex talk!

Destin and I have been having conversations around the kinds of violence that is inflicted upon vaginas. That, plus dysphoria, can make it difficult to connect to our bodies, and more specifically our genitals. The challenges (and trauma) of being a masculine person with a vagina (or whatever you call yours) can make it extremely difficult to be present during sex. So let’s name and reclaim!

Instead of just a discussion, we had a workshop idea. Let’s name our junk. Let’s draw our junk in its natural habitat (get creative!). And let’s write a love letter to our junk. Let’s be gentle with this part of our bodies. ♥

Reminder: Toolbox is a closed space for folks who were assigned female at birth and identify as transmasculine.
