Last Thursday, members and friends of the Eye, Quarto, and FemSex convened in the Intercultural Resource Center for an open mic focused on sex-positivity. Students came armed with poetry, prose, and creative non-fiction and fired away for a warm night of communal dialogue and entertainment.
For those who missed the event, take a look at the video above for a taste of what was said and done.

Having trouble imagining it for yourself? In this video, we asked Sawon to put the harrowing experience into words.
