In my last post, after taking a moment to fill you in on some behind the scenes planning for Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) 2013, I hinted at sharing some campaign details soon.


The interwebs are just crawling with information about sex. Well, let me rephrase that to there is plenty of sex on the internet. Suffice it to say quantity is no indicator of quality when it comes to the topic of sex and the internet, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people talking about it in helpful, healthy ways.


In the down time since April, we keep-up the conversation about sex, sexuality and preventing violence. But, it doesn’t quite look like this: three days, hundreds of professionals, hours upon hours of talking sex, sex, sex.
