Exploring your sexual desires and fantasies can be amazingly fun, with lots of opportunities to create hot, sexy times with someone new or a familiar lover.  But there are also lots of ways things can go wrong, especially when alcohol or the altered state of arousal kicks in.  It’s easy to go further than you or your partner(s) want, which can cause some serious backlash.

The challenge is in navigating consent, boundaries, and touch without letting it kill the mood.  When you can tune into your own desires and boundaries, pay attention to those of a potential partner, and get to the overlap of everyone’s “oh, yes,” that’s when you get the reward.

These are important skills that people of any gender need when navigating sexual situations.  It’s more than saying the right words.  It takes place on a physical, somatic level and your body won't lie about it. Rather than ignoring your gut feelings, it's the skill of listening to what you truly desire, moment by moment.  It lets you drop deeper into the pleasure and it lets you build more passion, and it makes it easier to find the places where you both get what you want.  The safer you and your partner feel, the higher you can fly.

Sounds great, right?  But it's not always easy to do, especially in a world that doesn't give us the tools to make it happen.  Charlie Glickman is a somatic sex educator and a sex and relationship coach. He'll lead you through a series of fully-clothed non-sexual exercises to help you discover some easy ways to bring embodied consent into your sex life.  You'll learn:

  • How to create an effective invitation for sex
  • Ways to tune into your felt sense of consent so you can track where your desires are
  • Tools for letting your partner know that you value and honor their pleasure and consent
  • What you can do to keep things in the "oh, yes" zone
  • What to do when missteps happen

Come find out what you can do to make your sexy times hotter, juicier, and more passionate!

These tools will work for any sexual activity, including BDSM and kink, and can be used by people of all genders and sexual orientations.  You're welcome to come with a partner, a friend, or solo.
