Exploring the depths of your erotic self, while exciting, can be scary and unnerving. In our attempts to find and maximize pleasure and connection, we can also confront parts of self which challenge our ideas about identity, community, and belonging. What does it mean if you like a certain kind of play? How does your fetish inform who you are and how others perceive you? Where did these arousal patterns arise and can they be integrated into your life in a supportive way?
In this workshop, Angie Gunn will discuss methods of exploring eroticism, and how to do so in a psychologically healthy and edifying way to find your optimal path. This will be discussion-based, but also include sexological concepts and up-to-date research on arousal and eroticism.
Angie Gunn LCSW CST, is an unapologetic badass in therapist form. Licensed in Oregon, Angie co-owns an in-person private practice as well as two digital companies, focused on providing avenues for healing trauma, expanding authenticity and vulnerability, and finding infinite pathways to pleasure and connection. She treats primarily LGBTQIPA+, kinky, non-monogamous, sex worker, and sexual trauma survivor clients through the lenses of intersectionality, social justice, and trauma-informed care. As a queer, kinky, non-monogamous abuse survivor, she's experienced the daily fight to balance personal and professional fulfillment and sexual expression. Her goal is personal integration with all the parts of herself, to provide transformation for all the parts of each of you, your relationships, and your communities.
You'll notice that we're offering two class cost options - $25, the regular cost of a She Bop class or workshop, and $15, a reduced cost option. While we want to make sure our instructors are compensated fairly for their hard work, we recognize that many of our community members are experiencing alterations to their finances at this time. If you are able to pay full price, we ask that you please consider doing so. If the lower cost option is a more accessible fit for you at this time, we encourage you to utilize that option.
