No one in society has it easy when it comes to sex. Harmful ideas about the way sex and bodies should work can build shame and embarrassment for anyone who operates outside the mainstream porn example. For some, the emphasis on performance and "doing" can create a great deal of stress and anxiety. It can also feel difficult to adjust to the sometimes vulnerable role of receiving touch or penetration.
In this class, Stella Harris will discuss communication techniques and ways to create intimacy that don't require an erection, as well as how to relax, slow down, and enjoy a range of sensations without being goal-oriented or rushing to a finish line. Whether exploring on your own body or with a partner, this class will teach you external and internal touch techniques to make anal play accessible.
This class is for anyone with a penis or prostate, or who likes playing with them!

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
Due to our commitment to paying educators fairly, all classes are excluded from sales and discounts.
