Can sex make the world a better place? Is pleasure a social justice issue? What does socially-just sex look like and feel like? Sexuality educator Al Vernacchio returns to Penn for a discussion about harnessing our most incredible source of power, our sexuality and using it to reshape the world into a more peaceful, loving and orgasmic place.

Al Vernacchio, a Penn alum (GSE ’93), has been a human sexuality educator and consultant for over 20 years. He has lectured, published articles and offered workshops on sexuality topics throughout the country. His work was featured in “Teaching Good Sex,” a November 20, 2011 cover story in The New York Times Magazine. In addition, Al is a TED Talk speaker and his blog, “For Goodness Sex,” can be found on the Psychology Today website.
