Jems Presents Rubber Hearts- Sex Unbound

  • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm | Thursday September 29, 2022
  • Form | Ace Hotel Toronto
  • 51 Camden St
We love love and that includes sex. Jems is a female-founded, Toronto-based condom brand that’s challenging a toxic industry and championing safer sex practices through inclusivity and education. We’ve teamed up with them for a four-part conversation series breaking down stigmas around sex culture and sex work. It’s a sexploration, come with us.
Sex Unbound
What becomes of sex and sexuality as it passes through the sweaty channels of representation? Sex Unbound is an exploration of censorship, virtual desires, and the mediated nature of contemporary sexuality. Join our panelists for presentations of their projects followed by a casual discussion.
Tickets – $5.00. All proceeds go to Maggie’s Toronto Sex Worker’s Action Project.
After party in the Lobby. DJ set by Redliners.

 

Moderator by Fan Wu and panelist Esco, Noelle Perdue, and Erin Reznick

Fan Wu is shifting from love to intimacy — how the most inward experience opens you onto the universal — in his idea of relationships. He runs the occasional curatorial series Erotic Awakenings in collaboration with Hearth Garage and has written about cruising in MICE Magazine and elsewhere.

ESCOBUTT is a non-binary multidisciplinary artist born in Colombia based in Tkaronto. Through the exploration of femme vitale subversive allegories, their work is concerned with the power of images, technology and the degree to which identities are shaped by consumer capitalist culture and mass media sensationalism

Noelle Perdue is a writer, artist, Internet porn historian, and near-mint condition collector’s item. Her work exploring digital intimacies and the blurry borders of obscenity can be found on Wired, Washington Post, Pornhub, Slate, Brazzers, et al.

Erin Reznick is a publisher and creative director currently based between New York City and Toronto, Canada. She is the creator co-Editor in Chief of Phile Magazine. Her work tends to the general problem of negotiating space within an urban landscape, specifically the social space that occurs in both public and private domains.
