TEDxPhoenixville 2014 Photos

Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll? Sign me up! That was the theme of the 5th annual TEDxPhoenixville event on September 27, 2014. I brought a heavier slant to the theme as a speaker about female sexual disempowerment, shame, and personal responsibility, and concluded by giving the audience a voice to take a stand for something different. It was really cool to have Kelly Stoetzel, the Content Director for TED, as our event emcee. The Colonial Theater (site of The Blob movie) did a wonderful job organizing the event (with the help of over 50 volunteers). And we had the last-minute bonus of a performance by a real rock 'n roller - Eric Bazilian of The Hooters! It was such a fun, powerful, community-minded day, I wanted to share some of the photos with you here :)

10 Things You Didn't Know about Orgasm - TED Talk with Mary Roach

This is funny. Really, really funny. Sometimes speakers make even topics like sex sound boring, but Mary Roach, with her quirky sense of humor and nerdy appreciation of science, is a perfect person to pitch this tent, so to speak. From history, to research, to animals, you don't want to miss #7 about how pig farmers help female pigs sexually enjoy artificial insemination!

Sex: Mind full or Mindful? TEDxWomen AFC

"We don't talk about the complexity of sexuality. What happens when we don't talk about it is that sexuality ends up on the shadows, and that is where we have shame, embarrassment, exploitation, abuse, and fear." ~Jennifer Gunsaullus, PhD

SEx: Mind Full or Mindful? TEDx Talk by San Diego Sexologist Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus.

SEx: Mind Full or Mindful? TEDx Talk by San Diego Sexologist Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus.

I was thrilled to speak at America's Finest City's TEDxWomen* event in San Diego on December 2, 2012, about my favorite topics of sex, female sexuality, and mindfulness.

Growing up as a girl in American society means that you likely learned a lot of negative and shameful messages about your body and sex, and received poor sex education. In this TEDx Talk, I discuss the state of affairs around female sexuality in the U.S.

Also, you can check out 10 of the Sexiest TED Talks about Sex. Thank you for viewing and I'd love to hear what you have to say about sex, female sexuality, and mindfulness!

*(Due to a music copyright infringement claim, all of the videos from that event were removed from the TEDx YouTube page in May of 2016. This pretty much sucked, because there were so many great comments, likes, and interactions around sex, mindfulness, and this talk! So, I removed the musical intro and am now posting to my YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy it!)
