This one goes out to all trans feminine folks, be they you and/or your sweetheart(s)! For far too long, the sexual experiences of trans women and AMAB nonbinary people have been represented as tragic and bleak, but this class is here to reinvigorate our collective curiosity!
Join Aria Carpenter in a workshop that explores trans feminine wellness and pleasure, driven by personal and community-sourced knowledge. Whether you're pre-op, post-op, non-op, on hormones, or not, this class will be the perfect place to get vibrator recommendations, anatomical knowledge, pleasure techniques, and resources. In the absence of conventional wisdom on our bodies and pleasure, we must be ready to share what knowledge we have with one another; so be prepared for a conversation where attendees are encouraged to steer the direction of discussion based on their needs and curiosity!
Aria Carpenter (she/her/hers) has been working as a sex educator for over three years. In that time, she has dedicated herself to nothing more passionately than the representation of trans feminine bodies in sex positive spaces. She seeks to cast a celebratory light on otherwise tragic representations of the sexual experiences of people like her, breaking away from dead-end genital dichotomies to acknowledge the vast albeit marginalized wisdom that already exists within her community. Aria dreams of a day when cisnormativity doesn't define sex positive spaces; when a freshly-out trans girl can walk into a self-proclaimed women's sex shop and feel seen, rather than alienated or out of place.
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.
