Back for more sex, safety, and style. Returning from its inaugural run in 2020 at the Commiserate Chicago conference, OOOHack will be hosted as an independent event in Pittsburgh. In our pandemic-affected world of greater reliance on digital presence, we have seen the need for sex work continue with an accompanying lack of recognition or protection even as the threat to the laborer’s safety has increased significantly. 

Over the course of 3 days, the OOOHack cohort of 20 artists, technologists, sex advocates, and more will explore the modes of pursuing pleasure when we privilege play and safety, and how this pleasure can show up in our art, work, and society. During the Hackathon, the cohort of participants will receive mentorship from experts; access to sex toys, hardware, and crafts to experiment; and operational instruction for fabrication facilities. Additionally, we will be live-streaming the final presentations of what was made during the hackathon (photo opt-out is always available). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided throughout the event.

All participants are expected to abide by our Code of Conduct.
