If you enter the chat room you will REALLY be part of the action! Is This Normal? with Adrianne Akers

Adrianne will share her thoughts on teaching college students about sex and disabilities, and teaching younger students (and others) about normalizing people with disabilities.

Adrianne has a Master of Arts degree from California State University, Northridge in Experimental Psychology. She is also physically disabled with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), which affects the range of motion in her joints and her muscle development. She uses a wheelchair to aid in her transportation and movement.

“Is This Normal?” deals with all sorts of sexual topics, ranging from basic sex education to gay and lesbian issues to kink and alternative sexualities. The show features guests from the academic field and from the various alternative lifestyles, reviews on current sex research and recent discoveries, sex in the news from around the world, demonstrations, and other fun stuff.

Ms Prior named the program based on her experiences in teaching and lecturing on sex and sexuality topics. “In all the consulting and teaching I’ve done, the most frequent question I get is “Am I normal?” or “Is this normal?”

The Center for Positive Sexuality is a non-profit organization dedicated to the idea that people not only need to be educated about sex and sexuality, but that everyone needs to be able to see these topics portrayed from a positive, healthy perspective. Sex and sexuality are normal, natural parts of being human and should be explored as a part of everyone’s development. Our website is: http://www.positivesexuality.org.
