ScrewSmart -- Sex Education from Soup to Nuts

There's a new group in Philadelphia called ScrewSmart, which aims to present sex-positive, queer-positive sex education to the public. Last Friday I attended what must have been one of their very first events, a workshop titled Porn You Can Salute. It opened with an erotic "exquisite corpse" exercise which was followed by a description and screening of several sorts of alternative to mainstream porn.

You can learn more about them from their website at They've developed printed materials on such topics as Porn You Can Salute Resource List, Movie Suggestions by Category, and Talking to a Partner About Porn.
