Workshop Description: Our formal, school-based sex education is lacking. But what about our sexual pleasure education? It’s practically non-existent. How do we learn to allow ourselves and our partners to experience sexual pleasure? Often by accident, often by guess-and-check, and way-too-often in ways that are terribly misinformed by Google, social mores, and sweeping generalizations about what “everyone

likes”.

This workshop will explore how we learn about pleasure by touching on some of our most pleasurable spots – the G-Spot, C-Spot (clitoris) and P-Spot (prostate) – complete with hands-on demonstrations with sex toy floor models (vibrators, dildos, anal toys, lube, etc).

Questions answered during this workshop include: Where are these spots? Why do they feel good? What kind of sex toys, lubricants and techniques can we use to help us make them feel good? How does actively practicing consent bring greater sexual pleasure to myself & my partners?

Walk away feeling empowered by new knowledge about how to bring yourself and your partners intentional pleasure. Propel radical sex education forward by starting in the most familiar place – with your own bodies, between your own sheets.

This workshop is open to all bodies, genders & identities. Language in this workshop honors the gender & sexuality spectrum rather than the binary and all participants are encouraged to practice self-care in their level of participation & attendance.
