How do I know that I have an awesome job? Reading/thinking/talking about things like female ejaculation is all in a day's work.

The Olympic Sponsors Global SpeakOut-Vancouver event last night was quite successful, in terms of numbers of committed participants and in terms of media coverage. This is one example of some of the coverage.

 I invite you to join me for Opt’s second Sexual and Reproductive Health Day (SRH Day) breakfast. We have named sexual health education activist and founder of Scarleteen.com, Heather Corinna, as our 2015 Sexual Health Champion. Heather will be presented with the award at our Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Day Breakfast Thursday, February 12, 2015 at the Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Vancouver hotel. CBC’s Man about Town, the Fabulous Fred Lee, will host this exciting fundraising event. Sophisticated sex comedy duo, The Wet Spots, and the femme-fabulous singing extravaganza, Femme City Choir, will entertain.
I encourage you to purchase tickets to the SRH Day breakfast now as they are going fast. Please click below for ticket sales and event information.
Proceeds from this event will directly support Opt’s sexual and reproductive health services, education programs and Sex Sense information line.
The 2015 SRH Day breakfast is made possible by the support of our sponsors; Creative B’stro, NewGen Technologies, and the BC Teachers' Federation.
Sexual and Reproductive Health day is one day of the year when official attention is turned to how we can all best protect ourselves and ensure that we enjoy good sexual and reproductive health throughout the year and throughout our lives. One of the best ways to do this is to prevent, test and treat sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and we think the best way to sum that up is:

 Heart Your Parts
When you Heart  Your Parts you enjoy them. 
When you Heart Your Parts you protect them. 
When you Heart Your Parts you get tested. 
When you Heart Your Parts you get treated.

I hope you will join me for breakfast on Thursday February 12th.
Thank you.
Jennifer
Opt's 2nd Annual Sexual and Reproductive Health Day Breakfast is fast approaching! Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Day is a time to promote awareness of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and encourage all Canadians to enjoy happy and healthy sex throughout the year.

Equanimity can be amusing.

Ok this looks totally worthwhile. A day devoted to how those of us in the not4profit/social values sector use technology. I've got my ticket already. You know you want to go :-)

He has a way of summing up magnificence such that it can be applied to the mundane. And when Chris Hadfield says "Fear not", I listen.
There's an astronaut saying: In space, “there is no problem so bad that you can’t make it worse.” So how do you deal with the complexity, the sheer pressure, of dealing with dangerous and scary situations? Retired colonel Chris Hadfield paints a vivid portrait of how to be prepared for the worst in space (and life) -- and it starts with walking into a spider’s web. Watch for a special space-y performance.

He could have said more, could have been more specific, but considering how most of the athletes are staying so quiet his comments scream volumes. Thank you Michael Lambert. 
Russia has enjoyed a serious lack of criticism from Olympic athletes during the Sochi Games. There are a few notable exceptions, such as Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev’s Pussy Riot snowboard and Austrian ski jumper Daniela Iraschko-Stolz’s statements against Russian anti-gay propaganda laws. But for the most part, the silence from...

Quite a buzz is building about the Olympic Sponsors Global SpeakOut event in Vancouver on Wednesday. I will be taping a CBC TV News interview today which they will air with footage of the events around the world tomorrow evening. And tomorrow morning we are doing CBC radio interviews. I hope that all the media attention will produce a lot of people speaking out against homophobia and in support of love. 
On Wednesday February 5th, thousands will gather in cities across the globe urging official Olympic sponsors (including McDonalds, Visa, and Coca-Cola) to speak out in support of gay, lesbian, bi, and …
