Sex & Cannabis

Thursday, November 30th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

Class attendees must be 21+ to attend this event.

With the legalization of cannabis on the West Coast, more and more folks are exploring how this popular plant may affect their sex lives. From decreasing chronic pain, to increasing sensitivity and arousal, to helping with relaxation and body image, using cannabis has helped many people enhance their sexual experiences.

You don't have to be a stoner to attend this class, or even need to smoke. Cannabis comes in many forms: concentrates, tinctures, edibles, flowers and topicals (including cannabis lubricant, such as the one made by Luminous Botanicals!). Amory Jane, M.A. is here to break it all down; in this workshop, she'll share the current research on cannabis use, talk about differences between THC and CBD, and offer advice on which strains may work best for certain sexual issues. She will also help you figure out which cannabis products and methods of consumption (if any) might be a good fit for you and/or a partner, and she will dive into the real pros and cons of combining cannabis and sex.

Bonus! Free lube samples will be available to each class participant on the night of class!

Rope Bondage 201

Wednesday, February 21st — 7:30 p.m. — $20

You've taken the Introduction to Rope Bondage class and/or you've already learned the single column tie, double column tie, and basic chest harness. So, now what? It's time to level up! In this 201 rope class Stella will show you how to put those ties together to create positions such as the hogtie and shrimp tie, and other positions that can be used for kink and sex. We'll also dive deeper into rope handling, building intimacy and connection, and how to create a full scene with rope. We'll demo these positions and techniques and give you time to practice them yourself.

Since these ties are more complex and intimate, you'll get the most out of this class if you attend with a practice partner (please note that the $20 registration is per person), but folks who come alone may be able to pair off with other students. Please bring rope if you have it, but some practice rope will be available. Also, please bring a yoga mat and/or blanket because we'll be on the floor for this class.
