PAWTUCKET, R.I.—The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health is hosting its inaugural Sextended Family Reunion, slated for Aug. 12-14, in Belgrade, Maine.
“I hear from so many people in the field of sexuality that they’re working in isolation, or feeling disconnected from people who share their values,” said CSPH Executive Director Kira Manser. “Sextended Family Reunion is an opportunity for people to connect with others from very diverse parts of the field—adult industry, educators, therapists, sex workers, bloggers, and everyone in between—and just have a good time. I hope people will have an unreasonable amount of fun, and get to meet and build memories, and real relationships, with people who also work in this field. I believe this supports the overall health and happiness of the folks who do this work, and makes for a stronger sexuality field as a whole!”
Every ticket registration for the event includes camping/tenting privileges for one adult from noon Aug. 12 to noon Aug. 14 (camping and tenting supplies are not included); six total meals (Friday dinner; Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner; Sunday breakfast and lunch); access to all camp activities, including, but not limited to, bonfires and s’mores, water activities and hiking; movies by the water; sex trivia; open mic/talent show; sex-positive team relay race; and dance party.
“The property in Maine where we are holding the event is the most special place in the world to me; it has been in my family for three generations, and everything at the property has been made by hand by family members,” Manser said. “It is an incredible privilege and pleasure to be able to invite my ‘sextended family’ to build and share memories at a place which has been such a source of strength and connectivity for my family of origin.”
