A headline in The McGill Daily that I first read in a tiny font that made it look like "Bad Sex Week fills a need in Montreal." But, anyway... what's the need for rad sex in Montreal? I'm reading this article so you won't have to. I'll summarize:
1. The need is for conversation about rad sex, which seems to relate to the fact that every person named in the article is female.
2. "Rad sex" does not include nonconsensual sex, and nonconsensual sex seems to be broadly construed by the Rad Sex Week folk who perceive the "sexual culture at McGill" as "pretty non-consensual." (It's also "very heteronormative and sexist.")
3. Radical sex and radical politics "give us a chance to really explore and be free."
4. A female playwright, performer, and sex activist named Cameryn Moore enthuses about "moving outside of the box" and "taking our sexuality outside of the box" seemingly without any awareness of the sexual double entendre of "box."
5. Moore is the founder of Sexploreum, "an immersive art-sex project," and she "is responsible" for an event called "the Masturbate-a-thon," which is "an annual solo sex play party, where it’s all genders, no touching anybody else." (I need a tag something like: It's an art project when you say it's an art project.)
6. The above-referenced artist informs us that sex "can transform people’s lives in a very serious way." Noted.
