Bold Kisumu Events Organizer Puts Together A First Sex Show In The City
We all have sex – at least the adults, but still, conversations about sex and sexuality are frowned upon in public. This is the mentality that Jovian Zuena and her organization Kisumu World of Pleasure hopes to reverse by creating spaces where people can openly talk about sex.
“People don’t talk about sex openly even within relationships and therefore it’s difficult for people to know whether they are doing the right things. What we are doing is offering our participants to understand their bodies better, ” explained Jovian.
The event featured demonstrations by a renown sexologist Stephan Okwany who showed the participants how they can enjoy their sex lives better. This included sexual organ hygiene, foreplay techniques, demonstration on sex positions that guarantee most pleasure and use of sex toys among other topics.
“The event targets women and men who would love to learn more about how to optimize their sexual life and health. The topics we covered varied from sexual reproductive health, effects of birth on women, types of exercises to boost women’s libidos, sex positions for maximum orgasm, intimate accessories demonstrations, and toys and lingerie sale.”
A section of the audience who were bold enough to speak to us had this to say:
“Sex is real, revered, blessed and a beautiful thing that should be approached safely, honestly, and with openness. It’s a topic many people fear but engage in wholeheartedly when they feel safe. Many homes and relationships have stunted because of a lack of openness in discussing what satisfies them, and knowing when to say yes or no and be respected.” – Caroline Ogot
” This was a mind-opening session, I thought I knew all there is to know about sex but from what I have seen here today, I have barely scratched the surface.” – Participant.
“I am really grateful for this opportunity because it allows us a safe space to openly explore our sexuality without being judged by others.” – Participant.
“We learned a lot today, our sex life was on the rocks but we are now going to try out new stuff and see if we can re-ignite the passion.” – Participant.
“They should more of such…it was awesome….. Women need to understand their bodies and pleasure points.” – Participant.
Jovian hopes to make the event a monthly one with each edition targeting different groups.
“We are also planning to replicate this in other towns, Nairobi will be our first stop,” said Jovian.
Despite the fact that organizers of the event had to deal with threats and negative messages from certain quarters, the event was largely a success and those who attended look forward to the next.
