How babies are made

I think it safe to say that most of you reading this were born. I mean sex was had, conception achieved, and a baby birthed.

What I’m trying to get across is that we all owe a lot to sex. And, I think it is safe to point out, most people enjoy at least some portions of the act. Not all. I don’t want to sound naive, but some.

The Edmonton Taboo Naughty and But Nice Sex Show will probably cover a lot of things that people like.

From November 16 to 19 there will be an opulent sex-positive vibe safely encasing the Edmonton Expo Centre like a (whatever name you call a condom. Where I was from, we called them Jimmies. Anyway, you are doing all the hard work here. I’m just helping you finish the analogy so that you can relate to it in your own way).

There is a strong LGBTQ2S contingent this year. There is a strong CIS contingent. There is a strong kink contingent. For the record, the word contingent means: (Noun) A group of people united by some common feature, forming part of a larger group.

That common feature is sex. Or sexuality. Or horny fun play. Or conjugal rubbing. Or whatever the fuck. I don’t know enough words to cover all the sexual idioms. Bonus round: Churning the bed butter.

The unique thing about sex is that it is always in flux. Throughout a person’s life, sex evolves and morphs. For me, sex will never be the same since I saw two of my favourite people come out of my wife’s vagina. The toll it took on her, on her body…on her mind…sex has shown me the magic and I’m still trying to come to terms with it. It’s like finding a unicorn farm in the middle of the woods and instead of harvesting their horns (snorting ground up unicorn horns makes you immortal), all you can do is revel in their majesty. Try to decode that one mom.

And for a few people that may think that streaking the show is a good idea:

Why am I writing about this? Because healthy sexuality is important. If there is anything that the modern political landscape is telling me is that Alberta has a lot of antiquated sexual hang-ups and not talking about sex, or being afraid of it, is dangerous and ignorant. Sex can be fun and inclusive and Taboo embodies this. It may not be for you, but like I said, it doesn’t have to be.

One of the first steps to positive sexual health is realizing that sexuality is unto the person. Each of us is different. But when it comes to consensual mature people, sex is one of the most beautiful things people can do.

Or it can be weird. But hey, weird has its beauty.

ALSO: Kaleigh Trace will be there with her “sex-formative, sex-positive and sex-citing seminars”. She is pretty rad.
