So, okay. Gillian, I am getting credit for an idea that was yours. (By the
way, I don't think I know who you are, or if I do I apologize profusely
for not remembering.) But re: sex week:
or something like that. Other interesting speakers might be:
--the Toys in Babeland folks (who I have seen speak before and who rock my
--people who have made movies about this (no one comes to mind, but they
--sexual historians -- I am /sure/ these people exist, and this would make
it a fabulous focus for Women in History month.
So. How shall we structure this badass series? What shall we do? What
shall we create? How much should be history and how much should be
education? (the difference between "the comprehensive history of the
vibrator" and "how to use a vibrator" might not be so great, but it would
change the speaker, perhaps.) Hmm? Hmm?
