Condom Monologues

I specialize in genderqueer approaches to safer sex and am chief editor at an independent safer sex collective and website. My partner and I launched Condom Monologues in 2008 out of frustration against boosts in world-wide abstinence-only mandates. We felt a strong need for a safe platform to share experiences that lead to dispelling sex myths and raising awareness about healthy, positive sex.

Our project went on the back burner when I pursued a Master’s in Gender Studies at the American Uni in Cairo, Egypt, where I trained in human rights and feminist research methodology. Now that I’ve completed school, I am rebuilding Condom Monologues as a career.  This community is a great  resource to help advance our website.

CM is based on values of education that reflect the diversity of people- to serve all sexes, genders, sexualities, kinks, and relationships with the aim to provide info about safer sex, sexual health, masturbation, toys and contraceptives. The aim is to provide static content of sexuality articles and guides, as well as interactive services in which we monitor a safe/respectful question-answer forum. We are also building a storytelling platform where people can share personal experiences (anonymously) that lead to learning, understanding, healing, and sex-positivity.

I love connecting with other sex nerds & gender geeks. There is much to learn and bear witness; so many stories to be heard! Which is why I am here. I love to chat! So contact me at larawor@gmail.com, or admin@condommonologues.com and you can find me on twitter @condommonologue .  Cheers!

By Lara @ Condom Monologues

I'm editor and contributor at a writers' collective that explores sexual health through everyday storytelling. My partner and I launched Condom Monologues in 2013 out of frustration against boosts in world-wide abstinence-only mandates. We felt a strong need for a safe platform to dispell sex myths and raising awareness about healthy, positive sex. One that goes beyond the "Just use a condom" and shamelessly share how we lusty humans sometimes make unsafe choices; to facilitate practical, more nuanced understanding of healthy options; to help relate to one another and better understand oursleves.

Creditials: A Master's in gender and sexuality studies. A thesis on digital storytelling workshops with a women's organization in Egypt. Some jobs here and there as a journal editor. Interships with HIV/AIDS organizations and a community networker for sex workers' rights.

I want to connect with other Sex Positives. Which is why I am here- to reach out and collaborate. So contact me at larawor@gmail.com, or admin@condommonologues.com and you can find us on twitter@condommonologue and facebook.com/condommonologues
