Made to Pleasure: DIY Design & Talk (Kelly’s Pick)
Feb 21 | 6PM | Museum of Vancouver | Free (members) $10/$12
My ears perk at the sound of an 18+ event, which explains why this pick made the cut.
This event provides an opportunity to learn about the history of sexual satisfaction and the construction of social pleasure, while giving you a hands-on experience that won’t earn you a scolding! Start by designing and creating a prototype of a vibrator from plasticine with advice from the pros from Standard Design and guidance from Vancouver's own Womyns’Ware Inc. Then bolster your knowledge with a special talk by Rachel Maines, whose book, The Technology of Orgasm, inspired the movie Hysteria (released last year). Maines uses rich (and sometimes hilarious) stories to reveal the surprising connection between technology, culture, sex, and the law.
