[FREE WORKSHOP] Creating Safer Spaces at Burning Man- presented by The Bureau of Erotic Discourse (B.E.D.)

Workshop Description

At The Bureau of Erotic Discourse (B.E.D.), we teach sex-positive consent education as a solution to a terrible problem. In 2004, after a violation, a burner said, “Somebody should do something about that.” Out of Civic Responsibility, B.E.D. was born. Since then, we’ve reached tens of thousands of people with our workshops, buttons, and training, but we’re always trying to improve our consent education program.

B.E.D. has gone virtual! We've adapted to using our online tools to spread the message of consent. Usually, a B.E.D. representative will come to your camp during Burning Man to gift a talk on how to talk about sex, rejection, and keeping us safer through the community. Why not bring that year-round so we can watch over each other in the default world too?

This training aims to start getting your camp or gathering, talking about consent culture, and how we can support burners by burners.


Host Bio

Momo has been in BED since 2017 and officially joined the Board of Directors in 2018. Watching how the world has been frustrated with consent has taught them to listen to a larger group more than telling people how to be. If you're here, you have a concern for sexual assault prevention and harm reduction while believing in the support of people with a similar concern! Thank you for being here!

The concepts in these lessons were practiced in Momo's default world career with experience to prove significant reductions in unwanted encounters, support from their immediate community, and create a better overall more empowering environment to be in.
