Pulling out: power play and exits.
As Brexit negotiations reach a series of unsatisfying climaxes a number of questions are raised. Is the EU a power bottom? Can Scotland gain power by pulling out of the UK? And outside of politics Is pulling out the only power we have? Are ghosting and abandonment violent acts?
We all have the power to withdraw but how do we use that power in our relationships and in our sex lives without ending up isolated and alone?
Extract yourselves from your homes and get to Naked Boys Reading! NBRis an international touring salon featuring in the buff readings by anyone who identifies as a boy. The event delights literary voyeurs of all shapes and sizes; 18+.
Hosted by everyone’s favourite drag-thing, Dr Sharon Husbands!
We hope you can cum!
