On Wednesday, November 3, 2021, we offered a webinar version of Where The Line Resides: Surviving The Cycle of Sexual Harm. This is the recording of the program with Closed Captions.
Have you experienced a sexual encounter you can’t quite label or categorize? Or maybe you don’t identify as a survivor of sexual violence because “it wasn’t that bad” or “they didn’t mean what they did”? Perhaps, you are wondering if you might have done harm, you want to figure it out but you’re terrified of being labeled a predator/rapist/perp? If any of these questions feel familiar or spark curiosity, join us as we discuss “the line”, navigating and shifting the sexual abuse culture, and how we can heal as survivors, harm-doers, and often both, without relying on carceral responses.

On Saturday, September 18, 2021, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of Sexy Survivor with a special Sexy Survivor webinar. Sexy Survivor welcomes survivors of CSA and sexual violence as well as partners and allies to join in supporting survivors.
All too often, sex is altered, damaged, or made complicated for survivors of sexual abuse. It takes time, patience, and trial and error to figure out what works for us. This webinar is an overview of our sexual healing modality (RASHIM), while offering resources and tools for reclaiming our sex lives. We encourage success building and future dreaming as we share stories and ideas of what has worked for sexy survivors.

Part One | Digital Sex; Sexting, Audio, & Video
This session is a fun introduction to the possibilities of using digital platforms for getting it on. We will discuss pros and cons of different modes of cyber communication, accessibility issues of different platforms, and how you can spice up your sexy time using features that different apps and softwares offer. We explore ways to set the mood and get hot and nasty, whether you are texting a sweetie, chatting them up on the phone, or using video calls to leave little for the imagination. Watch on Youtube.
Part Two | From Love Letters to Digital Smut
There is so much that goes on between love and smut. We take a historic look at love letters as the earliest form of expression of affection and desire, and discuss ways to bring back this lost art, or spice it up with modern technology, crafts, and creative eroticism. In the age of easy access to all things smutty, we talk about the role of smut and porn in adding extra hotness to cyber fucking. In the spectrum of romantic love to dirty smut, where do you see your desire thrive? Watch on Youtube.
Part Three | Anonymity, Digital Roleplay, & Fantasy
Let’s explore the realm of fantasy, roleplay, and the possibilities of cyber connection from anonymous partners to familiar lovers. We discuss how curiosity and desire manifest through our imagination, and how we can explore some of our fantasies in real life, or augment our realities with fantastical thoughts, props, and costumes. As we shelter in place and rely on our devices to find new connections, join us for a frank conversation about safety, trust, and the potential of anonymous fucking. Watch on Youtube.
Part Four | Virtual Power Play in the Age of Digital Sex
We tap into a time when the internet brought possibility, wonder and also fear. Virtual kink was the answer for many in the closet unable to venture out to experience. Today, BDSM, kink and the like are more accessible and less taboo. We’re doing it in dungeons at parties and at camp. While in quarantine we find ourselves back on our computers—kneeling or standing— digging into our power play creativity bags, ready for the adventure. Whether you’re a pro or a newbie, join us as we recall and reimagine Virtual Power Play in the time of COVID/19. Watch on Youtube.
