Dear reader,

The School for Poetic Computation proudly presents SFPC Sex Ed, a pleasure and queer centered experiment in shared study and epistemic empowerment. SFPC: Sex Ed is organized by Melanie Hoff, Zainab Aliyu and Neta Bomani, and includes workshops from 8 incredible sex educator guests we will announce soon!

We are excited to announce the program will take place this summer, from August 1 - 12th, 2022. Classes will be hosted by two amazing NYC venues, Performance Space and Amant Foundation. Weekday classes will take place in the evenings from 6-9pm with a break in the middle. After the program ends, participants will have an optional 1 week residency from August 15-19 at Performance Space.

This program is a direct response to creating the kinds of educational spaces we never had, but always sought. Many of us would benefit from actively determining our own sex education outside of systemic governing bodies like the state, public and private schools, or legal guardians, as well as interpersonal relationships like the person(s) who you're having sex with. Everyone deserves platonic and friendly spaces to learn and explore sexuality and pleasure informed by cultural understandings of sex, gender, class and race and how our identities relate to sexual desires, practices and kink.
