You know the basics: your hand-mouth coordination is on point, you've timed your breathing to a T, and you have an A+ in anatomy. Now's your chance to take things up a notch!

Join She Bop educator Gretchen Leigh as she takes you through the ins and outs and ups and downs of advanced fellatio.

Come one come all, fellatio aficionados and enthusiasts -- this class is open to blow job givers and receivers of all genders and orientations. This class will include a live demo on a dildo; please feel free to bring a pen and paper if you'd like to take notes, or a toy from home if you'd like to practice as you learn!

Sexting Myself: How to Take Sexy, Sensual Selfies

Thursday, February 8th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

Uncover, explore, and celebrate your sexuality through the fun and sensual art of sexy self-portraiture. In this class for women and femmes, Ev'Yan Whitney — sexuality doula and erotic selfie-taker — will teach you all the tricks and tools you'll need to take bomb sensual selfies — not just for the pleasure and lustful gaze of your lover, but for your pleasure, for your gaze, as a way of acknowledging and expressing the erotic in you. You can't be what you can't see, and sexy selfies can show you your sexual radiance through your own eyes.

In Sexting Myself, you'll learn how to do the infamous "Mirror Selfie" and will be given a private, enclosed space in the shop for you to play with it. You'll also receive a digital guide packed with tips to help you with poses, playing with certain props, journal prompts, and even photo editing recommendations that you can use after the class is over. This class is open to women and femmes, both seasoned selfie-takers and total selfie novices. All you'll need is a smartphone that takes pictures.

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.

Wet & Wild: G-spot and Squirting Orgasms

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

Ancient societies called it Amrita, the nectar of the gods. Pop culture regularly debates whether it's urine. Whichever camp you fall in, squirting is a hot topic.

In this class, Stella Harris will cover internal and external anatomy with special emphasis on what is commonly known as the G-spot — but is becoming better understood as the clitourethrovaginal (CUV) complex. She'll talk about everything from sex toys to touch techniques you can try alone or with a partner to experience an internal orgasm, and ways you can increase your chances of squirting.

Just as essential as sexual skills, Stella will discuss how to become comfortable with your body and with your partner, and ways to talk about touch and exploration that will put everyone at ease.
