The "Sexy Feast" Lecture

“Sexy Feast: What Our Favorite Foods Teach Us About Sex” is a sex lecture like no other. Using a multimedia approach that takes students through an A-to-Z menu of foods, Jay Friedman educates and entertains as he describes what each item tells about love, sex, dating, and relationships.

From prevention to pleasure, he tackles the toughest of topics in a refreshingly sex-positive way. This is far from a doom-and-gloom speech! It's playful and provocative, with lots of humor that has audiences laughing while they're learning. From doughnuts to lasagna to pizza, lessons range from sexual assault prevention to meeting the perfect partner to spine-tingling and sensible tips to increase sexual satisfaction.

"Sexy Feast" is for everyone, regardless of relationship status. It's great fun, with a bonus of learning a little about food as well as sex. Time flies by as Jay addresses a whirlwind of issues that has students thinking and talking long after the curtain closes.

"Sexy Feast" samples

B is for Buffalo chicken wings:

There are some restaurants that won’t serve their spiciest of wings until you sign a waiver. This teaches us that the path to pleasure depends on giving and gaining consent. (This launches into Jay's 3 conditions to meet before having sex, which boil down to communication and consent.)

H is for hamburgers and hot dogs:

These show that you can put a wrapper around meat, and still have a pleasurable experience as a result. (This launches into encouragement about condom use, including advice on how to make condoms work and feel better.)

S is for Swedish meatballs:

S is for Swedish meatballs. This shows that there are different approaches to making meatballs, with some saying that Swedish are better than others. (This launches into examples of how a Swedish/Scandinavian approach to sex and sex education is much healthier than our approach in the United States. Jay gives fun and colorful examples of the differences in approach, and then show an excerpt from an animated Scandinavian sex ed film that thrills students—and shocks them when they learn that it is actually intended for middle school students!)
