Colonization and Sex: The Aftermath

Join Devi and Anne Mauro, Clinical Sexologist, as they discuss the effects of colonization on American sexuality. With colonization came the erasure of indigenous and African sexual and relational practices. This presentation will raise awareness around the white body supremacy of sexuality. We will be looking at socio-political events that have contributed to what we consider today as acceptable practices.

 

Find out:

  • What Settler Sexuality was prior to colonization and their historical trauma prior to settling in America
  • Indigenous sexual and relational practices prior to colonization and the eraser of said practices after
  • Laws promoting sexual segregation
  • Experimentation on Black bodies to further research on sexual health
  • The aftermath of colonization and sex: Sexual shame, sexualized racial stereotypes, relational structures (monogamy), standards of beauty, sexual behaviors & language, The #MMIWG epidemic
