Sunday, May 3rd — 7:30 p.m. — $20

A growing number of people are exploring alternatives to monogamy, through swinging, polyamory, and other types of open relationships. If you or someone you know are one of those people, this might be the workshop for you!

Whether you are curious about opening up, already enjoying polyamory and wanting to do it even better, or facing obstacles in your non-monogamous relationship, AJ will help walk you through the challenges and benefits of ethical non-monogamy. She will discuss different styles of open relationships, talk about how to deal with common issues such as jealousy, resentment, time management, miscommunication, and New Relationship Energy (NRE), and will offer tips on dating/meeting new people, navigating different relationship structures and hierarchies, and coming out poly.

In this interactive workshop, AJ will guide participants through exercises that help them negotiate agreements/boundaries, design their own ideal open relationships, and practice nonviolent communication for deeper, more fulfilling connections. There will also be the option to hear about real-life triumphs and tribulations of other non-mono people in addition to learning how to find and build community. This is a 2-hour class.

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!

Keeping the Fire Alive: Satisfying and Sustainable Sex

Thursday, June 4th — 7:30 p.m. — $15

The number one reason that couples seek sex therapy is because sex has slowed or stopped altogether and it makes them question the viability of their primary long-term relationship. And while changing patterns in sexual dynamics can take time, it is far from hopeless! Most couples are in fact able to find great satisfaction again in their sexual relationships with the right tools.

By taking our own sexual inventories, exploring our interests and preferences, assessing areas of strength and areas for growth, and learning new ways to communicate our needs with our partners, we can create a new narrative in our sexual story. In this class we will explore why sex changes over time in partnerships, why it matters, what you can do about it, and how to keep fun, interesting, fulfilling and sustainable over time.

Alyssa Siegel is a licensed professional counselor in Portland, OR. In her private practice she works with individuals and couples specializing in sex and sexuality, relationships, and personal identity development. She is a contributing author for the book Your Brain on Sex: How Smarter Sex Can Change Your Life, and a columnist for Psychology Tomorrow Magazine, an online periodical that explores cutting edge ideas and practices in psychology, sexuality, and art.
