Speaking of Sex, we invite you to join the conversation!

Take a look at what people are saying so far!

The Human Sexuality Collection encourages us to think about sex from many angles. The exhibition Speaking of Sex will show just some of the words and ideas sprouting from the artifacts we have been accumulating for a quarter century. Each section will focus on a word or phrase researchers have been considering: perform, desire, trans, deviant, commercialization...

Use your computer or smartphone to create a video of you answering one of these questions in 1-3 minutes:

  1. What word should be included in this exhibit? What word should be talked about more? Researched more? Why?
  2. Researchers, what did you find in the Human Sexuality Collection that gave you something to think about?
  3. Current or former Cornell students, staff, or faculty, talk about your experiences with sexual identity while at Cornell. (longer clips accepted)
  4. Marginalia: what else do you want to say about the Human Sexuality Collection and moving forward with this work?

You may use YouTube on your computer or smart phone to create your video, or any other web service, program, or app that you find convenient.

Send the link to your video to SpeakingOfSex@cornell.edu, along with your name and the question you are answering. If you haven't uploaded your video to a hosting service like YouTube, you can share it with us using a free file sharing service like Dropbox or mail us a thumb drive.
