Sex In America, Phase I
SEX IN AMERICA with QUEAN MO
Hi, I’m Quean Mo, Sex Coach, Author and Creator of Call of the Quean (COTQ - sex blog).
Since the debut of COTQ, I have received numerous messages from grateful readers who had long felt they were “abnormal” for their desires. They praised me for my sexual candidness, and have continued to support my writing.
Witnessing the impact my stories have had on others has been both humbling and startling. I have since made it my mission to be as approachable and available for my following, so they have someone to lean on; someone to lift them out of their sexual repression, and remind them that, yes, they are in fact normal!
It’s these people that created the initial spark for project Sex In America (SIA).
BREAKING THE TABOO
Living in an epidemic of sexual shame has dire consequences on the individual, as well as the society as a whole. The purpose for this project is to start hammering away at that shame, one city at a time.
This is Phase I of Sex In America: our first campaign in a series of four. Throughout our roadtrip, we will be relaunching three more identical campaigns to raise $2500 for each leg of the trip. We are hoping to raise a grand total of $10K in order for us to reach the most amount of people and cities as possible! We, of course, will also be personally backing this project financially, as it is something both my husband and I are deeply passionate about.
PHASES of SIA
Phase I ends July 1st (helps finance first 3 months): Destinations include Quebec, Ontario, New York, DC, Chicago, Seattle (and many places in between).
Phase II ends October 1st (helps finance next 3 months): Destinations include Seattle, Vancouver, Las Vegas (with many stops in between).
Phase III ends January 1st (finances next 3 months): Destinations include Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and all the way to Florida (with many stops in between).
Phase IV ends April 1st (finances final 3 months of the trip): Destinations include the whole East Coast (from south to north), Kentucky and Tennessee!
Note: Each phase ends before the next leg of the trip begins, to ensure financial support for our upcoming destinations.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
By contributing to this project you are giving my husband and I the opportunity to expand our sex-positive reach, while simultaneously learning the needs of individuals and communities, and spreading awareness. By bringing this conversation to the streets, we are removing the third wall that many of us hide behind [screens!], providing an open and safe space for people to speak about their sexual diversity.
So, join us in this unique opportunity as we travel the USA and parts of Canada to pursue the following:
1) Hold sexuality Meet Ups in every city we visit
2) Speak to minority groups/hidden alternate lifestyle communities
3) Attend events/conferences
4) Interview experts, sex workers, thought leaders, sex bloggers/vloggers...
And hear from us every step of the way via Patreon and my blog, Call of the Quean!
Your contributions will allow us the freedom to travel and fulfill those goals, as well as continually provide you with content and feedback from the various experiences we have, and people we encounter.
More than ever, this project is critical. 2018 was a year of retroactivity! Between the reversion of sex-ed curriculums in many regions (including my home city), to the passing of laws that ban online sexual content online (you know, to name just two!), it is safe to say we are in need of a continental sexual renovation. We hope that you can share in our passion for this subject, and project.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Sexual wellbeing is an integral part to overall wellbeing, and yet it is being ignored, avoided, or riddled with shame and unrealistic expectations.
I have four nephews, two nieces (and more to come!), and the idea of them growing up in a world where they have to hide this part of themselves - the piece that is so deeply connected to how they came to be in the first place - is downright dreadful for me. My hope for this project is to broaden my knowledge and understanding of the diversity of sexuality by way of speaking to people just like you, your neighbours, their neighbours, and so forth...
If we can’t accept ourselves, how will we ever learn to accept each other?
Sexuality is the foundation of our existence, and yet the basis of the issues that exist today. Project Sex In America will not be the cure to all ills, but it is a starting point for a more sexually liberated tomorrow. Our only wish is that you join us in this effort, and that we get to meet you when we visit your city!
Sex-education is a necessity and includes much more than the act of sex itself. In order to grow and have healthy and fulfilling relationships, this topic should not remain off limits to anyone!
Thank you to everyone who has supported this cause so far. Every penny counts, and your support only reinforces the significance of this message.
Now that this project is off the ground, I look forward to sharing MUCH more with you all! Please share and support conversations that matter!
Toronto is the first stop (pre-launch), to get back in touch with my home community. Looking forward to sharing all the juicy adventures, and meeting you when we get to your city!
By supporting us, you’re helping us help you and others. Let’s work together to create a nation-wide community of sex positivity, and a more sexually liberated tomorrow!
Just a few details about the project: it will commence in May in NYC! We’ll be staying out there for a few weeks, hanging out with Bronte (The Essential Witch) and some fellow New Yorkers (perhaps a few of you?)! I’ll be holding a few Meet Ups and am up for suggestions on good spots in NYC to do so - any favourite pubs or cafes?
We want all of you to be as involved in this project as you’d like, so don’t be afraid to reach out with any suggestions or recommendations you have for us along the way!
Talk soon, and from the SIA Team, thank you again!!
