Clitaurus Chronicles: A Climactic Journey
Sex ed isn't just about preventing bad stuff from happening. It's also about learning how to play!
Papeachu Press invites parents and other adults to join sex therapist and Clitaurus Chronicles author, Breona Mendoza, at Hugo House for a presentation centering pleasure, communication, consent, and how to talk to kids about these often-overlooked aspects of sexuality. To be followed by an outdoor ice cream social!
Clitaurus Chronicles advocates for pleasure and self-empowerment. Written in the style of an early-reader picture book, this visual narrative follows Clitty: an adorable, clitoris-shaped, cartoon dinosaur with a dream to write a novel. The conflict surfaces right away—she needs to find her narrative climax.
Books will be sold at the event, and are also available online at Papeachu Press.
