ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS:
The Situational Sexual Desire Assessment presented by Myisha Battle
Goals: Identify how context can increase or decrease sexual desire, noting individual differences amongst peers. Gain confidence discussing the conditions under which sexual desire is most present and when it is not.
How it works:
- Participants will complete a fun and thought-provoking assessment of how context affects their sexual desire.
- They will then discuss in small groups any patterns they have uncovered from their personal results.
- Finally, based on their findings, they will identify two additional situations that excite them and two additional contexts that hinder their sexual arousal.
The Art of Saying "No" presented by Dr. Ali Fogarty
Feeling free to say both YES and NO is fundamental for being empowered in all areas of our lives, including our sexual and romantic relationships. In fact, your YES is meaningless if you don’t have the full access to your NO. In this experiential workshop, you will discover that saying NO not only makes saying YES more fun, it leads to deeper intimacy and increased pleasure. Learn to feel comfortable saying NO and how to confidently ask for what you truly want! All exercises are optional and designed to have you feel safe and empowered, open to singles and couples and folks of all genders and sexual orientations are welcome.
Touch Me Like You Mean It presented by Dr. Yoni Alkan
Touch is super important. Yet we cast it aside in our everyday lives, and when we do have an intimate moment; we immediately equate touch to sex.In this workshop we will talk about how important touch is for us, discuss consent, and then explore different types of touch. This workshop will enhance the participants quality of touch, and will provide them with a toolbox of touch-types that they will always be able to go back to in order to keep things fresh.We will have exercises that the crowd is encouraged to try out between themselves. It is important to have someone you can practice with, otherwise you might miss out on the practical parts of the workshop, however no one has to participate if they don't want to.
Come learn to enhance your intimacy and boost each other's Oxytocin levels!
