I can relate this event to the Linda Christensen piece that we read. This type of event is definitely for digital natives! Not really sure if I could see my parents attending an event like this ;) Although I am sure that sex toys have been around for a very long time, the sex toys that were displayed at this event seemed to be more m up to date and more intriguing to students.
Another piece of literature that I can connect this to is the week we talked about GLSEN. There were toys available for anyone and everyone. Being gay, transgender, straight, lesbian. It didn't matter if you won their was a prize for you!
I can connect this event to The Susan B. Koman breast cancer society because all of the bras that were donated were sent directly to her foundation to help find a cure.
Overall this event was a great way to get people together and all help a great cause! The women's studies group that put on this event were very pleased/shocked at the turnout because they did not think that many people were going to attend. Overall I really enjoyed this event, and it was something different to do on your average tuesday night at Rhode Island College.
