Great Sex without Penetration

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
7733 Santa Monica Blvd
West Hollywood, CA 90046 United States

Let’s get one misconception out of the way. Sex without penetration is still sex. Real sex. Hot sex. The idea that only penetrative sex constitutes “real sex” limits our creativity and our satisfaction. There are many reasons that penetrative sex might be off the table, but that leaves us with a smorgasbord of delectable options. Get new ideas for what we can do instead to express ourselves sexually, arouse ourselves and each other, share intimacy, and enjoy orgasms. Learn how to talk to a partner about sexual limitations and possibilities and how to negotiate more satisfying sexual expression. Free workshop!

12 Steps to Sexy Aging – Starting Now

12 Steps to Sexy Aging – Starting Now! Do you plan to get old? I hope you do, because the alternative to getting old is dying young, and who wants that? You’ve seen elders who radiate sexy zest, send sly signals, frequent sex shops and leave with a bounce in their step and a bag full of goodies. You’ve also met or heard stories about seniors who proclaim they’re done with sex, no longer interested, or who unintentionally let sex fall by the wayside until it’s too late to get it back. What can you do now to make sure you keep sex alive as you age? What are the secrets to staying sexually vibrant through the decades ahead? In this presentation, you’ll learn what you can do starting now, whether you’re 25 or 55 or any age at all, to invest in your future sexuality. You’ll learn practical tips, communication skills, and attitude adjustments to enrich your sex life lifelong – partnered or solo – despite what the aging process throws your way. This presentation is part of CatalystCon, a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality Los Angeles Marriott Airport Hotel, 5855 West Century Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045.

Invisible Seniors: Older-Age Sexuality as a Human Right

Thursday, August 2, 2018 @ 8:00 am - Sunday, August 5, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
5000 Seminary Rd
Alexandria, VA 22311 United States

The older we get, the more invisible we become as sexual beings. Researchers ask us the wrong questions – or don’t ask us at all! Our doctors dismiss us. Our society defines us by our wrinkles and chronology and assumes we are asexual. As sex educators and activists, it’s not enough to understand the problems – we must come together to be part of the solution. This interactive workshop will show us how to do that. This presentation is part of Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Summit
