  • The Sexual Survival Guide for Geeks

    by Violet Blue

    What they say about geeks, sex, relationships and hooking up just isn't true: we ARE hot and nerdy, and when it comes to events like SXSWi we could all use a little "booty call boot camp". Anyone can read sex ed basics online, but when you're faced with real-life situations and the nuances of quirky geeks who are smarter than the average hottie, and have that irresistible OCD, you'll need to know more than how to Google a pickup line or navigate a smooth SXSWi afterparty fling.

    In this talk, leading sex educator Violet Blue explains:

    • Sexual health basics, including safer sex 101.
    • Exactly how to have a smooth negotiation about safer sex.
    • Rules and tips for geek flirting.
    • Do's and Don'ts of picking up on geeks.
    • Sex etiquette and social media.
    • How to have a great one-nighter and feel happy saying hi in the halls the next day.
    • Navigating honesty (and health issues) when someone is cheating.
    • Consent: saying yes and no to sex with clarity and coolness.
    • How to have a hot time without pissing off your hotel roommates.
    • Why geeks are better lovers, and how to attract a geek.
    • Geek-specific suggestions for seeing each other after SXSW.

    While heterosexually focused in scope, this presentation will be inclusive of all genders and orientations. Includes a handout of recommendations for a Geek Sexual Survival Kit.
