Getting the Sex You Want: Disclosure, Exposure, and Erotic Communication

June 5, 2015 @ 5:40 pm - 7:00 pm


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) not only their trans status, history, or body but also other aspects of who they are (disability, self-image concerns, HIV status, etc.)   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 activities that explore communication techniques to getting the safe, consensual, and hot sex you are seeking.  Due to the conversational nature and activities of this workshop, seating is limited to 60 participants (so come early!).
