Many people are drawn to alternative lifestyles such as BDSM, ethical non-monogamy (ENM), polyamory, and swinging because they are seeking to explore a different side of themselves. As part of the learning process, people often feel it is important to find a community to help educate them on their new lifestyle journey, but seeking out a community for education and camaraderie can be the most difficult part of the journey. At times, it may feel as though you have joined a club, but never learned the secret handshake.
In this session, Dirty Lola will share ways to find your place within the alternative community that mesh with your needs and desires. She will cover topics ranging from appropriate lifestyle etiquette and finding a community, to negotiation and safety.
Dirty Lola is a sex edutainer, speaker, and self-proclaimed dildo slinger. Known for her live sex ed Q&A show Sex Ed A Go-Go and as co-host of New York Magazine's The Cut's "Sex Probz" web series, Lola has spent almost a decade working to end stigma and shame surrounding sex and sexuality. Having started her journey sharing personal discoveries with polyamory and kink online, Lola now uses her knowledge, warm candor and public platforms to teach the masses in-person and to rapt Internet audiences.
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.
