What types of play are we drawn to, and why? How do we build the practical and emotional skills we need to go there? What risks do we want to take, and how do we assess them and manage them?

5 (Dirty, Little) Secrets from the Science of Sex
With Emily Nagoski, PhD
We all know that pretty much everything mainstream culture has to say about sex is a lie; everything from whom we're "supposed" to have sex with to what we're "supposed" to do in bed and how often, all of it is bullshit. Well, it turns out the "lie" goes even deeper than that: it goes all the way to the very nature of pleasure in the brain. The last ten years of sex research have revolutionized our understanding sex, so that everything we thought we knew about sexual arousal, desire, and pleasure... has been turned on its head. This workshop is an empowering crash course in the new sex research and how you can use it to maximize your sexual potential and map out more of your sexual landscape. Please bring your thinking cap. Everyone looks sexy in a thinking cap!

Check out Emily's New York Times best selling book Come As You Are: The surprising new science that will transform your sex life.
