Communication in the Bedroom: Asking For What You Want — FULL — email info@sheboptheshop.com w/ name & number to be put on waitlist

Wednesday, September 30th — 7:30 p.m. — $15

Stella HarrisKnowing 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.

Stella Harris is an author, educator, and coach who focuses on intimacy and connection.

Stella hopes to build a world where everyone has the tools and confidence to explore their sexuality safely and free of shame.





Pleasure, Power, and Pain: An Introduction to BDSM

Sunday, October 18th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

BDSM — whips, chains, and lots of black leather, right? Well... sometimes! But the world of kink and BDSM covers so much more, from a little rough sex to the opportunity to explore your personal boundaries, both emotional and physical.

If you've been curious about something you've read, or turned on by a scene in a movie that's a little rougher than the usual fare, this class is for you! You'll learn how to use those amazing toys and have the chance to see what they feel like. We'll also be discussing role play, power dynamics, and resources for finding the local BDSM community.

Bring your fantasies, your questions, and your curiosity and get ready for a hot evening!

Mapping the Vulva: Anatomy, Communication, Touch, & Pleasure

Wednesday, October 28th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

There is so much confusion surrounding vulvas that it's become a pop-culture joke, from Orange is the New Black to Gay Men Draw Vaginas — where even the title is inaccurate. 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.

Even More Pleasure, Power, and Pain: Expanding Your BDSM Experiences

Sunday, November 1st — 7:30 p.m. — $20

Do you have a basic understanding of BDSM play? Perhaps you've read some of the how-to manuals, own some kinky toys, took a class or two, or have explored some sexy role play in the bedroom. Where do you go from here?

In this class, you'll learn skills to help you build hot, intense scenes no matter what you're into. We'll cover how to take some of the BDSM basics a bit farther, plus learn some edgier types of play such as CBT, nipple/breast torment, and orgasm control. There will also be a discussion of public play -- how to get invited to a party, what to expect, good etiquette, and more!

Be ready to try things out (optional, but so much fun!), ask questions, and share your experiences!
