“I love going to college campuses and opening up a dialogue with students about the role of pornography in society,” says Deen. “I believe educating people about pornography – what it is, the purpose for it, and its relationship with modern sex education – helps teach individuals to achieve personal growth and self-discovery.”

“Dispelling the shame many associate with sex, by teaching people to communicate with a partner safely and explore personal desires with consent, can only lead to healthy sexuality in my opinion,” Deen adds. “Thank you to the students of UW-Madison for inviting me to be a part of their Sexual Health Fest.”

“As an organization dedicated to promoting healthy sexuality through sex-positive education and activism, we are delighted to be welcoming James Deen as our keynote speaker for this year’s Sexual Health Fest,” states Sex Out Loud Program Coordinator Sam Johnson.

The University of Wisconsin’s student paper, the Badger Herald, profiled Deen earlier in April. To read the article, visit
