I’ll be “guest resident” for a week at this “creative community” and student center doing a series of events at the University of Illinois’s Allen Hall.
Sunday, February, 3 rd 1pm-2:30 presentation, 2:30-3pm – discussion – Annie Sprinkle: MY LIFE & WORK AS A PLEASURE ACTIVIST, PERFORMANCE ARTIST, RADICAL SEX EDUCATOR and ECOSEX PIONEER (in the Main Lounge)
Annie Sprinkle has made SEX her life’s work for four decades. She was a prostitute and porn star who recreated herself as a pivotal player in the 1980’s sex–positive feminist movement, became a tantric sex guru, an internationally acclaimed performance artist, and a sexologist with a PhD. Now the grrrlll has gone green and has come out of the closet as “ecosexual,” taking the Earth as her lover. Annie will share her life’s work, do mini-performances, and stimulate discussion. anniesprinkle.org
