This workshop covers the basics of healthy, fun, safer sex for all bodies and all genders. Starting from a place of pleasure - rather than fear or shame - we’ll talk about basic human anatomy; safer sex practices; pregnancy prevention; and the risks of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and how to prevent them. Rooted in sex positivity, this workshop celebrates all bodies and orientations - queer or trans, cis or straight.  We’ll also learn how to communicate and center values of enthusiastic consent in ways that leave us, and our partners, feeling empowered and respected in our bodies and sexualities. We’ll examine the subtle and often invisible ways in which systems of oppression discourage many of us from holding boundaries, and why expressing our needs and desires can be hard to do. Through shared discussion and embodied exercises, participants will leave with tangible skills for identifying their wants and needs and communicating them to others.”
