Sexologist Jallen Rix brings his innovative queer sex positivity to the stage in a groundbreaking solo performance piece. It is part memoir, part sex info, and part Faerie ritual. Dr. Rix deftly exposes the damaging sexual shame and stigmas our society still dumps upon the innocence and benefits of self-pleasuring.

Rix says, “It’s been quite the experience to re-create for audiences key moments in my childhood where sexual shame got its start in the context of religious abuse.” No stranger to the stage, Rix spent two decades as a full-time singer/songwriter, and is now a Professor, teaching graduate students at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. “Storytelling transcends a classroom and allows a vulnerability to which anyone can connect. I love it!” This special presentation is recommended for mature audiences because of nudity and adult language and situations.

Performances are Saturday, May 23 at 8 PM and Sunday, May 24 at 2 PM.
