Ladies, Welcome to our Platform!
What we are all about…
Here for the woman who want to vent about anything from mental issues to their dating/sex lives, gender equality, economic development to government accountability and corruption, we take it all - theres always "Something to Wine About."
THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS...
Something to Wine About is turning "Downward Dogs" into "Downward Demons".
Come spend Halloween 2018 at BarreFlow (a barre and yoga fusion class) at Balance Yoga Barre in midtown with the ladies who love to wine. We'll be practicing our ghastly abs grippers and haunted handstand, a Halloween fitness sequence so good, its scary.
Once you've enjoyed all the tricks we have up our sleeves for the night, treat yourself to a glass or two of wine from our sponsors.
$25 - 1 hour Barre & Yoga class, plus 1 hour of drinks and mingling!

What is Ethic porn?
Date to be confirmed
Porn plays a complex role in society, and more and more, it’s being used as a surrogate for sex education, as described in this recent NY times piece: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/07/magazine/teenagers-learning-online-porn-literacy-sex-education.html. Much of porn, however, is problematic in some way or another, e.g. it does not show real sex acts, or actors may not have fully consented to everything being shown, or actors are not being paid for their work. There is an emerging movement, especially among feminist and queer performers and directors, to create and disseminate ethical and feminist porn that addresses some of these issues (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/05/style/porn-women-nonbinary-queer.html). In this talk, I will discuss some of the things that can make porn ethical, and show clips of porn films from various directors with different approaches to ethical porn. After the screenings, we’ll have small group discussions about the films, followed by a larger group discussion about the present and future of ethical porn.

Something to Wine About is showcasing three amazing women, Lindsay Steadman, Estrella Jaramillo, and Veronica Kaulinis who will promote more discussion in the sex education space. This panel's purpose is to allow women to openly discuss women's social stigma around sex, learn about the state of our sex education & how effective our policies prepare us in taking care of ourselves and promote more access to women's intimate health.
