Pagan Speed Dating and Networking

Starwood is an exciting place full of sexy and interesting people. Pagan Speed Dating & Networking is a fast, fun, safe and comfortable way to meet a workshop space full of festi-goers who want to meet someone like you. Participants will be assigned a number and will spend three minutes with numerous "dates". If both parties are interested in meeting again, veteran Starwood attendees Kelly (Cheshire) McBride will set up a networking location so they can set up another date at the festival. Last year we had a 10% hook-up rate and some great connections among poi spinners, disc golf fans and more. Join us and who knows who you might meet in three minutes!






Family Communication on Sexuality

With so much sexual imagery and talk in the media, it's important that parents help their young people to find the meaning behind it. Parents sometimes worry about what to say or how to begin talking about sexual issues, and sometimes the conversation doesn't happen. It might be because parents have no model to follow if their own parents didn't talk with them about sex. This workshop will help parents clarify the values they want to communicate to their children/teens and offer tips and tricks to make it easier and effective. Parents are the primary sexuality educators of their children - meet with a Planned Parenthood educator to learn communication tools that work.
