Consensuality Workshop: Experientials that Challenge and Expand Awareness

Consensuality is an amalgamation of the words Consent and Sensuality. Consensuality emphasizes relationship enhancement and focuses on improving verbal and non-verbal skills for navigating the challenges and opportunities of sensual, intimate and vulnerable interactions. We will also increase our mindful awareness of our own needs and limits and the ability to effectively express them, while simultaneously increasing our awareness of the needs and limits of others. We challenge you to examine the many intimate and powerful nuances of advanced consent through a unique blend of experiential exercises. Join Mark Sisti, PhD and Sarah Levinson of Creative Relating, and sex therapist Rachel Klechevsky, LMSW in manifesting cutting-edge consent dialogue into powerful interpersonal connections. Let’s use consent to enhance sensuality.

A sampling of workshop topics:

Explore nuances of advanced consent (non-verbal consent, consent over time, revoking consent)

Improve your awareness of moments of choice, agency and responsibility

Enhance your ability to be emotionally courageous and vulnerable

Explore aftercare: social ruptures, transgressions and compassionate repair

Apply consent skills while enhancing intimacy without a chilling effect

Utilize consent with greater awareness of privilege, equity and inclusivity

Participants & Content:

This workshop is appropriate for individuals, couples, and moresomes. It is intended for those who are open to exploring the edges of their comfort zones. To maximize deeper experiential learning, there will be exercises where participants may choose limited nonsexual contact. There will be alternative exercises available. The event will include the use of sexual language. The event is clothed. The workshop begins at 10:00 AM, with a one-hour lunch break from 1-2pm (participants are welcome to bring lunch and eat in the workshop space), and ends at 5 PM.

Safe Space:

The workshop will take place at the ” Center for Remembering and Sharing”, a safe, quiet, community space for contemplation and sharing. Our workshop room is a large private space with a hard floor and yoga mats. Many exercises will take place seated on the floor but chairs are also available. You are welcome to bring your favorite backjack or meditation cushion. Confidentiality: Anything shared in the room stays in the room.

How To Please A Woman: An Introduction (Squirting Tutorial Included)

The female body is intricate, complex, and beautiful. Every vulva is different, like a snowflake. While there is no “one size fits all” techniques when it comes to pleasing a vulva owner there are many tried and true techniques, tips and tricks to use like an explorer on an expedition.

Expect a refresher on female anatomy in the different states of arousal using live models for demonstration.

How to please a woman is about more than just physical touch. Learn the art of communication when it comes to making a lover feel safe, comfortable and valued. Take inventory on their responses to understand what type of approach and touch is best suited for them.

Instructors Aaron and Lola Jean will teach various hand manipulation as well as oral techniques that can be well applied to any type of penetration or external stimulation.

Watch out for the Splash Zone! Aaron and Lola Jean will each demonstrate techniques for squirting and cover the mechanics and physical sensation from both perspectives of the receiver and the giver. Squirting is a two-way street, after all.

This class is a WATCH & LEARN. Please note this is not a hands-on class and attendees will be asked to stay clothed for the entirety of the lesson. If you are interested in more hands-on classes or private tactical lessons, please consult Aaron and Lola Jean on group class or private options.

**We recognize not all humans with vulvas identify as women, nor do all those who identify as women have a vulva. All lessons of touch are applicable to any human body.

Curious Fox Holiday Soirée

IMPORTANT: You MUST reserve your seat at our private registration page.

Please register each guest separately at tickettailor.com/events/curiousfox/215219 Thank you!!

———————————–
Curious Fox is a community for those who challenge the status quo when it comes to love, sex, and relationships.

Each month we tackle a theme with a brave set of panelists answering the various questions we throw at them. We do a lot of work: we listen, we get curious, we learn, we share, we grow. But every now and then we take a break, skip the work and jump straight into socializing (our favorite part!) Our Holiday event is going to be one of those events, filled with fun connections and enticing conversation.

Wherever you are in your exploration, you are welcome. We will provide some fun icebreakers to ignite connections with other curious folks. Get ready to share in conversation with like-minded people and make some new friends in our intimate event space.

Curious Fox Social is dedicated to diversity in every way: gender, race, age, orientation, neurology, ability, ideology… We’d love to see everyone represented. No promises, no pressure.

Doors open at 7:30pm. We will provide hors d’oeuvres and cozy cocktails, and we encourage you to bring your own drinks to share as well.

Photos are okay with consent from all parties.

Join us for our Summer Soirée on Wednesday, December 12th at 7:30 pm at New Women Space.

*New Women’s Space is wheelchair accessible*

DDD Friday PlayGroup 4:00pm

The PlayGroup gatherings are our more exclusive, capacity controlled and gender-balanced play parties. Smaller in size than most of the evening soirees, the PlayGroups are more intimate and, while the members that attend can be quite social, tend to focus a bit more on one-to-one play. These primarily daytime events allow participants to enjoy play at their own pace – a quick work break or a leisurely afternoon/early evening – while everyone who attends these sessions leaves both satisfied and with the anticipation of returning.
The Friday afternoon session cover is $60 for couples, $150 for single men, and goes from 4pm – 6:30pm, giving everyone a chance to wind down after work, no matter what side of “9-5” you are on!
