CFN Meet Up!

We’re doing a women-only Christian Feminist Meetup on 30th November 2019 and would love you to join us!  You may or may not know that the world’s FIRST Vagina Musuem has opened in Camden Town, and we are GOING TO VISIT!  On 30th November, they’ll be a double-bill of two solo shows, “Hole” and “Fat Sex”, and we’re organising a CFN women-only meetup to go see them.  The show starts 7.30pm, and we’re going to meet at 6pm for drinks and to chat.  We’ll meet outside the Vagina Museum, and find somewhere for a drink, before heading to the shows.  Afterwards, those of us able to stick around for a bit longer will find somewhere for post-show drinks to discuss the shows.

 

For a bit more on the shows:

Hole is an autobiographical comedy about Vaginismus, holes, feeling whole and womanhood. Hole is like any other young woman, except she can’t have penetrative sex. This show follows Hole as she explores what sex really is, through quirky original music and multi role characters. [The focus of this show on vaginismus may be of particular interest, given that (at least) anecdotal evidence suggests that religious purity culture can contribute to women developing vaginismus, through alienating women from their own bodies.]

Fat Sex is an autobiographical solo performance, using comedy and references to popular culture to discuss fat female sexuality in society. Fat Sex is performed by a plus sized female who embraces the fat body as a sexual body. The performance explores the struggle to reclaim the fat body as a sexual body, and how the fat body either denied a sexuality, or fetishized.
