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.

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

Thursday, July 2nd — 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!

Let's Play with Rope Tonight!: A Friendly Introduction to Bondage

Sunday, July 26th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

Are you intrigued by the idea of tying someone up and having your way with them, or perhaps being restrained while someone does delightfully kinky things to you? Well, this class is designed to be a friendly first step towards that goal!

This class will cover the many hot ways bondage can be used (it's not just about dominance, folks!), address safety concerns, and teach three simple and functional ties. We will then experiment with creative ways of applying these basic techniques to put people in a variety of compromising positions. Handouts and online video links will be distributed to help remind you of key skills when you get home.

Please come wearing comfortable clothes that you can move around in. You may want to come with a practice partner, but it isn't necessary (please note that the $20 registration is per person). People of all genders and orientations are very welcome.

Chris is a happy, sex-positive perv who has been grinning his way through the kink scene for about eight years. He helps organize CockCircus, Seattle's only public BDSM party for men, and enjoys evangelizing about the many virtues of bondage.
