The BOE Announces – Radical Self-Acceptance – Tuesday, Aug. 20

BOE Small Web Logo 448pix by 336pxALLEN PARK, Mich. – This week’s class is: Radical Self-Acceptance with Sir Nelly

First time attending a BOE class?

Negative representations of sex, BDSM, and bodies abound, but how do we counter these images, words, and beliefs in our own lives? I propose a framework of radical self-acceptance as a way to honor your body, sex, and BDSM as it is right now. First we will describe some of the negative and positive messages that we receive (black is beautiful, thin is in, etc.), some of our doubts (Am I [submissive/dominant] enough? etc.), and some of our moments of self-acceptance. Then we will talk about a framework for radical self-acceptance and strategies for countering negative messages and finding more positive channels. Then we will spend some time in small groups thinking about some ways that we might bring radical self-acceptance into our own lives. This workshop draws heavily on the sex-positive and fat acceptance movements, but applies these concepts and principles to our entire existence. Come ready to open your heart to yourself.
