FEMALE EJACULATION WORKSHOP – Live on PASS

Female Ejaculation Workshop - live on PASS in Mexico City!

Female Ejaculation Workshop – live on PASS in Mexico City!

(read Spanish version below)

with Diana J. Torres aka Pornoterrorista and guests,

and with sound manipulations by Constanza Piña

THU Oct 19, 21:30 local time Mexico City

For centuries medical science has been the enemy of of the body and sexuality of women, silencing anatomic realities and pathologizing everything that doesn’t fit in the phallocratic and heteronormative, binary division of gender roles.

This workshop aims at revealing one of the most controversial aspects of vaginas: their ejaculation. And at the same time advocates the recognition of the organ that produces it: the prostate.

With a lot of humor and in a didactic and queer feminist combative way, we’ll be exploring the sound cosmos of female ejaculation and learn to play the game.

Tune in for this extraordinary and extracurricular episode of THINGS THAT GO IN AND OUT OF THE BODY – a program curated by Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz for the PASS landing in Mexico City.

TALLER RADIOFÓNICO DE EYACULACIÓN FEMENINA°

con Diana J. Torres aka Pornoterrorista e invitadas,

con intervenciones sonoras de Constanza Piña

JUE 19 de octubre a las 21:30 hora local Ciudad de México

Durante siglos, la ciencia médica ha sido el enemigo del cuerpo y la sexualidad de las mujeres, silenciando realidades anatómicas y patologizando todo lo que no encajara dentro de los parámetros de la falocracia y la heterosexualidad y de los roles binaristas de género.
Este taller pretende desvelar uno de los aspectos más controvertidos de la sexualidad de los coños: su eyaculación. Y al mismo tiempo hacer un alegato por el reconocimiento del órgano que la produce: la próstata.

De forma didáctica, llena de sentido del humor y desde una visión feminista y combativa exploraremos el cosmos sonoro de la eyaculación femenina y entraremos en juego.

Ven online para este extraordinario y extracurricular episodio de COSAS QUE ENTRAN Y SALEN DEL CUERPO, programa de PASS al vivo desde Ciudad de México, 18-22 de octubre

Listen to a selection of thought-provoking public lectures from faculty members of ‘Angazi, but I’m Sure’, Session 2 of the RAW Academy at RAW Material Company, Dakar conceived and directed by Chimurenga. “Angazi, but I’m sure” is a common South African phrase simply meaning “I don’t know, but I am sure”. It is a deliberately self-contradictory phrase that is usually spoken in prelude to a reply. The respondent is uncertain – of what they “know”. Or, perhaps, they are certain, but …  ( continue reading
