#SXsingle, it's not just a hashtag, it's a lifestyle.
Over the years, the term "what happens at South By, stays at South By" has become part of the vernacular for veteran attendees. In some instances, this means exactly as it sounds. However, many matches have been made at SXSW, including marriages, babies, long term relationships, and of course numerous hook ups.
Come join other #SXsingle(s) or those who once were and want to relive their glory days at SXSW! We'll trade stories, laughs and maybe even some digits!
Are sex-positive feminism and pickup artistry inherently opposed? Are they possibly dependent on each other? In recent years, the popularity of the pickup artist movement has placed the subject in popular cultural locations such as MTV and Oprah. The internet is ever birthing new discussions on all sides of the debate, and the realities of social media and geolocation technologies makes finding and building niche communities easier than ever. Are these methods helping average guys score, or is it an avenue to breed sexual predators? For or against, people from many backgrounds are weighing in on a discussion that is rooted in the most basic mediums of the web. Join a panel of men and women ranging from seasoned pick-up artists, to outspoken feminist bloggers, to those who straddle the line. No longer talking at each other, these experts in their fields will debate with each other the realities of the new sex rules, and what these rules mean in the context of a mediated life.
