From the eye-catching displays of new sex-positive products to the expert-led sessions geared towards de-stigmatization and education, the 2017 New York City Sex Expo's commitment to shame-free sexuality in its many forms was truly partwarming.
Few folks in the packed Brooklyn EXPO Center weren't cracking a smile of delight or indulging in an awkward laugh or two as they pored over the vibrators, dildos, erotica, lingerie, and other goodies that were piled up artfully on dozens of booths around the hall. Catering to both newbies and sexperts alike, the Sex Expo was just as welcoming to folks hankering to buy their first sex toy to use solo as it was to those looking to be amongst likeminded sex positive folks for a weekend of advanced sexploration. There was truly something for everyone. And in a time of nationwide strife where sexual assault protections are being rolled back for college students and female bodily autonomy and sexuality remains demonized by the Republican majority, an event like this was a welcome breath of fresh air.
