Discussion Panels

The Play Party Panel Project

a discussion panel series

San Francisco

Born out of a discussion with Dr. Robert Lawrence in April of 2008, Reid Mihalko gathered eight, San Francisco-area sex educators for one night at San Francisco’s Center for Sex and Culture to discuss their personal experiences, thoughts, and philosophies on the nature and history of group sensuality and play party events in the Bay Area.         

The first discussion panel took place on Thursday, May 22nd, 2008, and was received by a standing room-only crowd. The resulting dialogue became the catalyst for a series of panel discussions Mr. Mihalko is currently organizing and moderating across the country. 

Every panel is being filmed and recorded with plans for a possible documentary currently in the works. To make a donation to help fund the making of the documentary, click on the PayPal button below or contact Reid at documentary@reidmihalko.com.

All donations over $50 will be thanked in the credits!
