Sharing Stories About First-Time Sex: Open Communication with the Young People in our Lives — RSVP on Facebook

Thursday, May 19th — 7:30 p.m. — FREE

Join author Amber J. Keyser, editor of The V-Word: True Stories of First-Time Sex, and several of the women whose stories are featured in the book, for a frank conversation about first-times. They will read selections from The V-Word, talk about why they wrote the book, and discuss why it's important to talk to the young people in our lives about our own experiences.

For young people, the decision to have sex for the first time is often fraught with emotions ranging from excitement and desire to anxiety, guilt, and uncertainty. The V-Word contains honest and poignant essays by 17 women about losing their virginity. Equal parts funny, hot, cringe-worthy, and empowering, the collection reveals the diversity and reality of first-time sexual experiences — some exhilarating and some disappointing — through essays by trans, queer, and straight women. The book includes a discussion of media portrayals of teen sex and resources for both teens and parents. Read more about editor Amber J Keyser on her website.

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

Sunday, June 5th — 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.

Stella Harris is an author, educator, and coach who focuses on intimacy and connection. As a certified Intimacy Educator, she uses a variety of tools to guide and empower her clients and she teaches everything from pleasure anatomy, to communication skills, to kink and BDSM. She has presented classes for a variety of organizations including the Portland Leather Alliance, the Portland Academy of Sex Ed, Sex Positive Portland, and more, and has spoken at Portland State University, Reed College, and Pacific University. Stella is widely published in print and online, from erotic fiction to educational and lifestyle pieces on sex and kink.

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