Sex After Bad Stuff: Pleasure Education Mini-Course (Online)
Sex After Bad Stuff Happens:
A live, online pleasure education course for anyone who's experienced sexual assault*
(*or other generally awful sex stuff you feel messed up about but aren't sure what to call it)
Do you feel like you’re merely tolerating sex? Not sure how to talk about what you want (or even figure out what that is)? For so many people who’ve had violating sexual experiences, sex may feel fraught, out of control, or unfun. We’re raising the bar from surviving to thriving, helping anyone who’s experienced coercive, assaultive, or bad-but-I-don’t-have-a-word-for-it sexual experiences to create the sex life they want.
This class will cover information and strategies to help you feel more empowered in your sexuality. We’ll be taking a pleasure-based approach, helping participants to build, embody, and celebrate their sexual selves.Topics include:
- Sexual communication
- Keeping focus during sex
- Getting clear on consent and managing the feeling of "maybe"
- Exploring your sexual messaging
- Building and managing desire
- The anatomy of arousal and pleasure
- Sex toys and other enhancements
- Sensation and power play
- Bringing sex-positivity into your everyday life
