Sex Industry Forum Has Unusual Sponsor
The previous invitation for tonight's event comes not from a strip club, adult book store or Kennedy Family picnic.
It comes from an area church.
City Church in Long Beach, to be more specific.
"Come join us in a discussion about sex," reads the City Church Facebook page. "This is a forum for any and all people interested in asking porn stars, strippers and escorts why they do what they do."
Goals of the event include humanizing those who work in the adult industry, redeeming sex and sexuality and helping parents steer their children clear of careers on the stripper's pole or in front of a porn camera.
This can only be done if a dialogue is opened between friends, spouses, sex partners and those making gold by doin' the dirty, according to the church (and not in those words).
It brings to mind--in a less in-your-face manner--the pioneering work of the anti-porn XXXChurch.

The forum is scheduled from 7:30 to 9 tonight at the Art Theatre, 2025 E. Fourth St., Long Beach. The Facebook page has more event info, and you can learn more about the church there or here: www.lbcitychurch.org.
