Body Image, Media, & Representation: How To Retrain Your Brain

If seeing is believing, then you need to see yourself to believe in yourself. There is a problem. We don’t often see all bodies represented across media; so how does one go forward? In this workshop, we talk about how to find representation in the world and yourself when the landscape seems scarce.

Plus-Size Sex, Representation, And Tips

Despite common tropes about desexualized fat characters and how bigger people are portrayed in the media, people of size have sex too! Like, really really good sex. But it does come with its fair share of complications. In this workshop, we will go over consent, vocab, positions, products, and what myths we need to throw away!

 

Laura Delarato's workshops, talks, and panels have been seen at ProjectHEAL, Body Politic NYC, The Brooklyn Sex Expo, Fusion Academy, and The Pleasure Chest.
