About the Event

Slaying The Demon of Fear! Join Dr Evalene Molina Dacker to hear the Fool’s journey through the land of sex negative education towards knowledge, liberation and empowerment. 

Through sex positive education, the Fool encounters and calms the beasts Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, the Sorcerer Human Papillomavirus and the Werewolf Herpes Simplex. But alas, the end is still not at hand (or mouth) for the waters of Vaginitis: BV, Candida and M. Gen must be tamed and laid to rest.

The Fool learns through understanding risks and gaining tools to minimize infections they are able to overcome shame and slaughter guilt. They gain the knowledge that pleasure is not a sin and come to accept that being human is messy business. Through that wisdom they are liberated from the tyranny of sexual subjugation to find connection, love and orgasmic bliss.

Those who identify outside the dominant paradigm of hetero monogamy can learn from this journey and the story is for you.

Dr. Evalene Molina Dacker will present a sex-positive perspective on sexually transmitted infections.

She'll cover:

  • Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, HPV, HSV, and common vaginitis infections
  • Minimization of STI transmission for non-monogamous, kinky, and queer people
  • The importance of testing and how to get what you need from your healthcare provider
  • Understanding STI transmission risks beyond PIV/PIA
  • How risk tolerance plays into our stigma and fears
  • The importance of understanding sexual networks
  • The use of testing and communication to reduce transmission

The 90 minute class will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A.

Bio: 

Evalene Molina Dacker, MD is a Latinx-American, sex-positive Family Medicine physician in Salem, OR Currently she is applying her integrative and holistic approach into treating sexual medicine as integral to whole person healthcare.

Dr. Molina Dacker has a special interest in reframing and re-educating people on Sexually Transmitted Infections. She sees our relationship with STIs as a metaphor for the fear and shame we have around our sexuality. As a practicing physician, this is encountered in her everyday healing. Her clinical and scientific knowledge, along with her lived experience as a Latinx, queer person, have given her a unique perspective that is beyond the Academic. 

In addition to practicing medicine, Dr. Dacker created the safer sex communication model the STARS Talk© to help facilitate open and honest safer sex conversations. She is a community leader, a consent and sex educator, sexual health activist and TEDx speaker. 

(She has recently changed her name from Evelin to Evalene to better reflect how it is pronounced).
