Respect This: Safer Saner Sex in College

In this hilarious program, Cindy uses anecdotes and her social research to demystify sex, relationships, and the drunk hook-up culture. With unfiltered honesty, she addresses how media and internet porn skew sexual expectations for men and women, particularly around female pleasure. Cindy’s stories encourage students to look more closely at the role of alcohol in decision-making and how excessive consumption actually undermines social and sexual comfort. Cindy will help students put sex in a healthy context for those who want to make it a safe priority without letting it sabotage their emotional well being. Students will walk away with safer and more realistic expectations about sex.

Cindy’s programs can be customized for all-male, all-female, or mixed-gender groups and can include customization on the following topics:

• The unspoken and unfulfilled promises of masculinity training in our culture
• How media, internet, and culture are winning the battle to convince women they are not enough
• Tuning into your Inner Compass by self-regulating and becoming aware of overwhelming choices in your lives and the consuming aspects of technology dependence
• Enlisting and maintaining a Healthy Crew of friends and role models to help navigate early adulthood
• The impact of porn and gaming on the sexual expectations of men and women
• The contributing factors that keep the drunk hook-up culture alive

The language in this keynote (or workshop) is frank and unfiltered. Although we wish everyone would listen to Cindy and take her lessons to heart, we don’t recommend this program for mandatory events or for audiences where people under 17 are present. A standard program is 60 mins + Q&A, but can be customized to a time range of 45 – 90 mins + Q&A.

A Note from the Speaker:

A big part of my message is the power of a healthy crew—trusted role models, siblings and friends with whom we can ask anything and get reliable information. Not enough young people have that. My honest, open approach, combined with my absolute comfort with myself, is both disarming and inspiring for audience members. I create a safe environment where students can ask the most frank questions without feeling stupid or judged. I’m about lifting the weight of embarrassment off people’s shoulders. By sharing facts and anecdotes, I dispel myths that have been passed along and reinforced through generations.
