Disclosure, Exposure and Getting the Sex You Want

June 13, 2014 @ 5:40 pm - 7:00 pm

Description: 

Getting the sex you want often starts with being able to express what you want — verbally or non-verbally.  Many people are concerned about how to disclose (or not disclose) their trans status, history, or body and how to successfully navigate consent-based sexual interactions.  Figuring out strategies about what to tell, who to tell, how to tell, how much to tell, when to tell, if to tell can be challenging and sometimes daunting.  In this workshop, the facilitators will  guide discussion on ways to communicate about our bodies and desires that will lead to the outcome of getting the safe, consensual, and hot sex you are seeking.  Communication techniques will be shared that explore a variety of aspects of sexuality and sexual consent.
