Tomorrow – Body-Friendly Christianity – Rev Bev – Mt. Airy Learning Tree

Rev. Dr. Beverly “Rev Bev” will be teaching a  course called “Introduction to a Body-Friendly Christianity,” At the Mt. Airy Learning Tree, Philadelphia, May 14th, registration still available.

This class is designed to subvert the sexually repressed teachings in Christianity by presenting a body-positive, inclusive biblical interpretation and theological views that promote gender and s+xual equality as well as an ethically grounded s+xual exploration.

“If the Creator pronounced the creation as ‘very good’ then that means our s+xual bodies are blessed as well.  I think it is time the church started teaching that without the repression,” said Dale.  “Although the central teaching of Christianity is supposed to be the incarnation, that is, God-in-the-flesh, positive teaching about s+xuality is in short supply.”

“What would the world look like if we worried less about sex and celebrated it more instead?” Dale asked.   “I think we should not try to control s+xuality but channel it.   But we can’t do that until we can embrace it as good.”

The class is Tuesday May 14, 2013 at Hagan Hall, Lutheran Theological Seminary, 7300 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA at 7:00 p.m.  Advance registration is recommended.

Rev. Dr. Beverly Dale, also known as “Rev Bev”, is a published writer, vocalist, and performer, in addition to being an ordained minister.  Her ministry has taken her from being a pastor in a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) parish in Illinois for 6 years to 21 years of campus ministry at the University of Pennsylvania.  She tours her original theater piece “An Irreverent Journey from Eggbeaters to Vibrators” for largely secular audiences and leads s+x positive workshops, usually within a Christian context.  Rev. Dale is the 2012 recipient of the Diabolique Foundation Community Service award.

Happy Mother’s Day! – Free Food – TCBY – McCormick & Schmick – Hooters (?)

Hooters is offering free food on Mother’s Day, but only if Mom brings a kid in tow. I’m truly not certain if the lure of free food is really going to help Hooters change it’s image. They are known for waitresses with large breasts and men gawking at them while eating. Reverse roles, hetero-women entering a restaurant known for waiters with large penises. .. I don’t think soooo, especially with kids in hand. Breasts and penises aside, the food at Hooters is quite mediocre.

Excerpt from article:

Hooters may have finally figured out a way to lure Mom in the door: Give her free food.

For one day, at least.

The chain famous for its waitresses in sexy uniforms has long struggled to attract female customers — particularly mothers. But this Mother’s Day, it hopes to lure mothers nationwide by offering free entrees — worth up to $10 — for mothers who bring a kid along and buy any drink.

Many restaurant chains have Mother’s Day come-ons — with restrictions — this year, like small cups of yogurt at TCBY; free slices of pie at O’Charley’s and Shoney’s; and free truffles at McCormick & Schmick’s. But very few are giving away the whole meal.

For Hooters, which is desperately trying to improve its food, its look and its image, the move illustrates what a 30-year-old chain must do that has fallen so far. Although Hooters has offered free wings on special occasions like Mother’s Day before, this is the chain’s first freebie offer on a breadth of entrees. This also is the first year the chain has sold entree salads — which it also hopes will attract some women.

It’s My Party: The Women and Comedy Project

A world premiere comedy from “Philadelphia’s reigning comic queen.” (American Theatre Magazine)

It’s My Party: The Women and Comedy Project is the culmination of two years of research, a dozen workshops, and nearly a hundred interviews with women from all walks of life—exploring, and exposing, the role of comedy in women’s lives. This comedy extravaganza features seven of Philadelphia’s funniest actresses and a script by Jennifer Childs in a one-of-a-kind theatrical event. http://www.playsandplayers.org

Bootycandy

Behind a tall church pulpit, a fire-and-brimstone preacher delivers a shocking sermon to his congregation. On the tropical sands of a deserted island, two lesbians come together. And at the home of a young boy, Sutter, a mother scolds him for reading Jackie Collins romance novels. This is just a taste of playwright Robert O’Hara’s wildly imaginative anthology of sassy lessons in sex ed, a kaleidoscope of sketches that interconnect to portray growing up gay and African-American. With variety-show vivacity, outrageous humor, and real heart and soul, it tests how we talk about human desire and racial stereotypes at home, in church, and on the corner. Shantay! Sashay! https://wilmatheater.org

May is Masturbation Month and collaboratives Pleasure Rush! and ScrewSmart are here to give you a way to celebrate and mobilize around pleasure-politics at the same time! How you ask? With a good old-fashioned Masturbate-a-Thon!

Both Pleasure Rush! and ScrewSmart believe that the Philly Masturbate-a-Thon 2013 has the power to deliver the following:
• Reduce stigma and shame around sexuality!
• Promote sexual health!
• Create a community dialogue around the importance of pleasure!
• Give you an excuse to jerk-off for hours!

Here’s how it works: the Philly Masturbate-a-Thon 2013 wants people engaged and involved in sexing themselves up- and talking about it!  Start your own Crowdrise page by clicking the “Join our team” button below.  You can name it anything you’d like- it’s a site to share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences as you get it on with yourself all month.  Use this as an excuse to wine and dine yourself, or to be proud of your regular self-loving routine 🙂  You’ve successfully joined the Masturbate-a-thon!
