Sana Sana Series: Shhh! Secretos y Sex

It’s the elephant in the room. The forbidden subject. The scarlet S. A slippery slope. A can of worms. The root of all evil. Nothing but trouble, and so on.  

But really, it’s just sex. (Ay, don’t blush!)

It’s no secret that sex is a taboo topic in Latinx communities, avoided by those who we rely on most to educate us, resulting in unanswered questions and, often, unaddressed sexual health issues. Enter “Secretos y Sex,” an evening of sex talk that’s honest, refreshing, and FUNNY! That’s right—because in addition to answering the sexual health questions you’ve been burning—literally—to ask, we’ll be sharing the embarrassing, cringeworthy, and sometimes, heartbreaking stories associated with the dreaded “birds & the bees” conversation in Latinx households.

Featuring:

  • Storytelling and improv comedy by Latinx comedy group, Prima Doñas.
  • Sexual Health 101 with a university health advocate
  • Pre-show interactives facilitated by student group, Latino Community Affairs
  • And Valentine’s Day-themed snacks and desserts!
