Afrosexology: Dalychia Saah and Rafaella Smith-Fiallo
We are Black, womyn, pleasure advocates, sex educators, social workers, activists, and creators, who are passionate about empowering people to live their most pleasurable lives.
Afrosexology provides comprehensive pleasure based education centered around the narratives and liberation of Black people. We curate community discussions, educational materials, and sex positive events that cover topics such as: masturbation, self love, enhancing communication in relationships, radical twerking, oral sex, body agency, and much much more! We work with diverse groups including sexuality professionals, community organizations, individuals, parents, youth, spiritual communities, universities, and anyone else who wants to live a sex positive life. Our mission is to educate, explore, and reclaim Black sexuality by promoting Black self empowerment through sexual liberation. We just celebrated our first birthday and are proud to have worked with over 600 individuals. Afrosexology has created spaces where people feel free to express everything from shame to sexual desires, challenge stereotypes around sexual agency, and build an affirming community around shared experiences.
We are living in a time when power and liberation are being sought out in many ways. Sexuality is undoubtedly rooted in self-perception, expression, and acceptance. However, in the Black community sexuality is full of reservations and restrictions. Considering the way that Black bodies have been forced to move, it's quite understandable, but now that must change. Afrosexology takes on the challenge of being a change agent. We encourage conversations around sex and sexuality as a tool of empowerment and freedom. Because we need it, it's ours. We deserve to experience pleasure in which ever ways possible. And, we owe it to ourselves to explore our full being without shame, false narratives, and miseducation.
