Penis to Prostate: A guide to internal and external pleasure

May 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


No one in our society has it easy when it comes to sex. Harmful ideas about the way sex and bodies should work can build shame and embarrassment for anyone who thinks they operate outside the mainstream porn example. For men/masculine identified people the emphasis on performance and “doing” can create a great deal of stress and anxiety. We will discuss communication techniques and ways to create intimacy that don’t require an erection along with ways to relax, slow down, and enjoy a range of sensations without being goal oriented or rushing to a finish line.

Not everyone who has a penis or prostate is masculine identified. We’ll discuss ways to learn what language your partner likes to use around their body and we’ll touch on the experience of people who take hormones.

This class will be part lecture with visual aids and part live demonstration. You will learn styles of touch for the penis along with anal and prostate play.

This class will include a live demo.
