Communication in the Bedroom: Asking For What You Want

Wednesday, May 13th — 7:30 p.m. PST — $15-25 — FULL

Stella Harris

This class will be held online via Zoom — you'll receive an email with access information two days prior to the event, or shortly after sign-up if you register within 48 hours of class. Registration deadline: 3 p.m. PST on the day of class. If you're registered for this class and can no longer attend due to the format change, please email us at [email protected]

Knowing what you want isn't as easy as it sounds, and asking for it can be even trickier. Honesty puts us in a vulnerable place, opening us up to rejection or shame. People of all genders and sexualities have a lot of cultural baggage to work through, from messages implying that wanting sex or pleasure is slutty (and that that's a bad thing) to ubiquitous sex tips that make it sound like we're supposed to read our partners' minds.

All of this sets us up for failure, and many people never take the chance to open a dialogue with their partner(s). But being able to talk about your wants and needs is the only way to get them met.

In this class we'll talk about styles of communication, ways to put yourself and your partner at ease, and specific examples of tools and phrases to try. We'll discuss how to start the conversation and how to incorporate communication into dirty talk. Not sure what to ask for? We'll talk about some common fantasies you might want to try.

As always, there will be time for Q&A, and all genders and orientations are welcome.

Ah, a class about periods. I bet the last time you attended one of these (if ever...) you were a teenager, giggling or groaning as your PE teacher walked you through how to use a "sanitary" pad. There is so much more to learn! Registered nurse and sex educator Rae Higgins has created the period class that she wishes everyone had access to in, and after, their adolescence.

This workshop goes beyond tampons, pads, and the period talk you had in your junior high health class. Rae will introduce you to sustainable, body-safe period products (like cups, period panties/briefs, and other reusable alternatives), discuss the importance of inclusive non-binary language, and guide you through the ebbs and flows of the menstrual cycle — hormonal changes, tracking ovulation, and how to honor our bodies during each phase of the menstrual cycle. You will leave this workshop with the language, products, and information you'll need to evolve your period.

All period-having folks are welcome.

This class will be held online via Zoom —you'll receive an email with access information two days prior to the event, or shortly after sign-up if you register within 48 hours of class. Registration deadline: 12 p.m. PST on the day of class.

Kink and BDSM are all the rage these days — maybe you've seen something that caught your attention but you don't know where to start in real life. With a little bit of information and know-how, you can start introducing kink into your own play right now!

Everyone likes a change of pace now and then, and part of what's sexy about kink is that it's a way to communicate about and experiment with new things. Kink presents some wonderful tools for playing with vulnerability and enhancing intimacy and connection.

No idea where to start, or what you'd even enjoy? No problem. Stella Harris will give an overview of common kinks and you'll get a downloadable yes/no/maybe list to use as a starting point to think about what you'd like to try. We'll also discuss safety, consent, and negotiation and you'll leave with ideas about how to incorporate kink into your own sex life.

Although Hollywood might have us believe that only people of certain body types can have sensual, satisfying sex lives, sexy comes in all shapes and sizes! If you're a fabulous fat babe who wants to build a better relationship with your body and sexuality or someone who enjoys having sex with the curviest among us, this workshop is for you and anyone else who wants to become more body-positive and fat-positive in their approach to sex/sexuality.

This workshop will give you tools to start developing a fat-positive mindset both in and out of the bedroom. We'll work together to tear down myths around sex that confine sensuality to smaller bodies, discuss strategies for cultivating a fat positive relationship with your body and the bodies of others, and talk through in-the-moment tactics for navigating the uniqueness of fat bodies in sexual interactions. You'll also walk away from this workshop with a list of products, equipment, and positions for enhancing fat sex. The goal of this workshop is to change the conversation around fat sex and embrace a diversity of bodies in all their fabulous fleshiness.

Hailey Otis is a scholar, activist, and speaker whose work focuses on fat positivity and representations of fat bodies within the body positive movement. She has a Master's degree in Communication from Colorado State University and grounds her work in intersectional feminism, sex positivity, and radical fat liberation. Hailey — a self-identified "fatty" herself — is committed to liberating fat folks from the shackles of shame, stigma, and diet culture by cultivating spaces for fat positivity.

Mapping the Vulva: Licking, Touching, Teasing, & Talking

Wednesday, June 10th — 5:30 p.m. PST — $15-25

This class will be held online via Zoom — you'll receive an email with access information two days prior to the event, or shortly after sign-up if you register within 48 hours of class. Registration deadline: 12 p.m. PST on the day of class.

There is so much confusion surrounding vulvas that it's become a pop-culture joke. Unfortunately, the joke is on us. With vulvas being a place of mystery (and worse, a source of shame), our ability to receive pleasure from this area of the body can be extremely diminished. This class will dispel misinformation and teach you all about the vulva — from anatomy to styles of touch. In addition to the external genitalia, we'll also discuss the vagina, the G-spot, and the underlying anatomical structures.

With a focus on intimacy and connection, this class will cover styles of communication that will set both the giver and the receiver of touch at ease and give you tools to communicate your desires. There is a whole world of pleasure available if giver and receiver are willing to learn how to relax, open up, to touch and receive touch.

Using visual aids, sex toys, and vulva models, we’ll discuss everything from hand sex to oral sex as well as the use of toys — and ways to combine all three.
