Renaming Desire: Trans/Non-Trans Sex Revisited

 

 

 

 

The Joys of Toys!

Thursday, February 5th — 7:30 p.m. — $15

 

Join She Bop's very own AJ (aka Amory Jane) for an evening of education and fun. Ever wandered around a sex toy shop and wondered "what the heck is that?" Never fear, AJ will answer those burning (in a good way) questions and then some!

 

In this class you will learn how sex toys originated and have advanced throughout history. AJ will explain the different types of toys, what they are used for and what they are made from, including vibrators, dildos, kegel exercisers, anal toys, toys for BDSM and more. Of course, don't forget one of the most important things of all... yes, that would be lube! AJ will go over the different types of lube, as well as the ingredients to be aware of when selecting the best product for you. She will also address how to clean and store your toys so that you can enjoy them for as long as possible.

 

Additionally, just in time for Valentine’s Day, AJ will give pointers on how to select a toy or gift for someone else!

 

As a special bonus, class attendees get 10% off their purchases in She Bop the night of the Joys of Toys class!

 

This workshop is open to all genders and sexual appetites!

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

Thursday, February 19th — 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, March 1st — 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 fee is per person). People of all genders and orientations are very welcome.

Renaming Desire: Trans/Non-Trans Sex Revisited

Thursday, April 23rd — 7:30 p.m. — $20

 

Even in 2015 the notion of sex between trans and non-trans people strikes fear and curiosity in many queer people. For trans people, how to come out and express one’s desire and physical/mental make up to a non-trans person remains a monumental hurdle. For non-trans people, how to acknowledge, accept and engage in a mutual sexual attraction with a trans person and risk rejection from various communities remains a hurdle. Within those concerns lie the issues of exoticization, race, class, and plain old sexual mechanics!

 

Our goals in this workshop are to provide an open atmosphere for people to address these issues, as well as to look at the state of sex-positivity in the queer movement. We encourage people to attend, learn, and go away from the workshop having gained insight into how to have responsible, meaningful and FUN sex!
