#SexTalkTuesday has announced that Mikel Ibarra of Pies in the Window, will be their special guest and moderator for a Twitter-based chat show to discuss the mingling of art, sexual self-image, self-acceptance, and pleasure.
Sex Talk Tuesday is a fun and provocative Twitter chat that takes place at 1 am CET at Tuesday/Wednesday night. #SexTalkTuesday is hosted and coordinated by Sssh.com. During each session, an invited moderator asks provocative questions to a large and active group of participants who send hundreds of tweets during each round of #SexTalkTuesday.
The result is a lively and fun discussion that encourages participants to be open and honest in expressing their thoughts and opinions about sex, life, love, and humor in a way that fosters a friendly and compassionate environment for conversation.
This upcoming #SexTalkTuesday will be moderated by Mikel Ibarra, an artist who uses hand-carved desserts as her medium to explore the paths between empowerment, acceptance, sexuality, and objectification.
Her life has followed a curving path from artist to wife and mother, to public school art teacher, to baker and finally back to artist. Ultimately it was the process of spending hours in the kitchen seeking perfection in baking that awakened her inspiration.
“I wanted to tackle my feelings about the proverbial ‘woman’s place,’” Ibarra said, “and pie proved to be the perfect symbol to begin this exploration.” The artist further explained “The vulva is a source of pleasure and portal of life while also being a source of shame and fear; like pie, it’s often treated as a consumable commodity.”
Angie Rowntree, founder of Sssh.com and producer of #SexTalkTuesday stated “It’s such a treat (literally and figuratively) to have Mikel Ibarra share her art and insights with the #SexTalkTuesday community.”
“Her unique creations are statement pieces unlike any other we’ve ever seen, and this discussion is bound to go in many interesting directions.” Rowntree continued.
