Workshops

Knowledge is sexy, and talking nerdy has never been more fun! Our workshops cover many different aspects of sex, sexuality, health, and relationships.  In an effort to create a safe and non-judgmental environment, we ask that all workshop participants respect the opinions, boundaries, and experiences expressed by others.  If you have a great topic for a workshop, feel free to contact us with your ideas.

Directly after workshops, we give participants 10% off in-store purchases! The discount does not apply to books, magazines and commission items.

*Our workshop fees operate on a sliding scale basis.  However, if you would like to attend a workshop for which you can’t afford the fee, a further reduction is often possible.  Just contact us directly by phone or email to make arrangements.

**A quick note on safeR space: it is all of our responsibilities to create a safer space in which we actively engage in consensual and non-discriminatory behaviour.

Woher weiß ich, was ich will?

mit Joris Kern

Woher weiß ich beim Sex eigentlich, was ich will? Muss ich überhaupt etwas wollen? Muss ich das wissen? Und wenn ja: Kommuniziere ich das? Und wie? Gibt es einen Willen zum Wollen?

Wir werden uns mit verschiedenen Ebenen von Wollen beschäftigen und mit Wegen, mehr über unser Wollen herauszufinden. Was braucht unsere persönliches Wollen, unsere Lust und Begehren, um sich zu zeigen? Statt dem Dogma „Du musst wissen was du willst“ machen wir einen Raum auf, in dem Unsicherheit, Schüchternheit und Experimentieren genauso willkommen ist wie drängende Wünsche und lang gehegte Phantasien.

Joris gibt seit Jahren Workshops zu Sexualität mit dem Fokus auf Einvernehmlichkeit/ Konsens und hat ein großes Interesse daran Räume zu schaffen, in denen ein ehrlicher Austausch stattfinden kann. Das ist ihr ein wichtiges Anliegen und macht ihm viel Spaß.

Communicating Desire

with Kitty May

Good communication can help us and our lovers feel safer, sexier and more satisfied. How do we express our sexual desires and boundaries? How do we find out what our lovers want, need and enjoy?

Addressing these questions, this workshop aims to increase participants’ confidence in voicing their desires, and to develop core listening skills for lovers. It will help participants build communication skills for fulfilling, consensual sexual connections.

We’ll explore the meaning, and the erotic power, of enthusiastic consent, learn some tools and strategies for communication, and practice using them within the workshop.

Kitty is Other Nature’s Director of Education and Community outreach, as well as a freelance sex educator and counsellor in private practice. Her person-centred, participatory workshops are open and creative spaces that encourage participants to reflect, share and grow.
