Key West’s 10-day long extravaganza of exuberant and sensual Fantasy Fest parties and parades create the foundation for Key West Art & Historical Society’s adult-only Distinguished Speaker Series presentation on the History of Sex- an illuminating journey through centuries of human eroticism on Wednesday, October 25 from 5:30PM – 7:00PM, offered by psychologist, sexologist and sex therapist Dr. Pamela Stephenson Connolly at the Tropic Cinema, 416 Eaton Street. A 5:30PM champagne reception will precede the presentation.
“Key West is not the only society that openly and ritually celebrates sexual fun and fantasy – as expressed in parades and parties during its annual Fantasy Fest,” says Society Director of Education Adele Williams. “Different civilizations at different times in history have developed unique sexual rituals, beliefs, and more that in turn have influenced the personal eroticism of its citizens.”
Connolly’s presentation will reveal fascinating facts about our ancestors’ sexual styles, behaviors, and beliefs in an exciting lecture that promotes a fun, utterly frank and positive view of sex, while also shedding light on some of the seemingly quirkiest aspects of human sexuality and offering an educated perspective into the roles of religion, families, beliefs, and mythologies regarding the way sexuality has been viewed and experienced through the ages.
The Distinguished Speaker Series is sponsored in part by the Helmerich Trust and the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the State of Florida.
