Explore the erotic possibilities of the darker shades of sex, including playing with power dynamics and taboos. This three-part series offers stimulating information as well as group discussion and non-sexual exercises to help you discover new territory for your sexual expression. Each session will build on the previous and will cultivate an atmosphere of safety and acceptance, in which participants can illuminate their relationship to themes of power, pleasure, play, kinks, and sexual healing. While some participants may have read the book “Fifty Shades of Grey”, that is not a pre-requisite for taking this class.

August 15th, 7-9pm – Erotic Potential of Power
The exploration of power dynamics, such as domination and submission, can be extremely arousing, playful, healing and can provide a great forum for personal expression. In this session, we will create a safe space to start looking at our inner world and fantasies around sexual power and taboos through a combination of journaling, non-sexual group activities, and discussion. Optional homework will be suggested.

August 22nd, 7-9pm – Turn-ons, Turn-offs, and Creating Safety
In week two, we will dive more deeply into our personal story and consider archetypes and role-playing possibilities through teachings, group discussion, and non-sexual exercises. We’ll discuss ways to make it safe to explore this edgy territory with a partner, including how to make agreements, the importance of consent, the use of safe words, and “checking in”. Optional homework will be suggested.

August 29th, 7-9pm – Emerging and Engaging
Week three will be a powerful opportunity to reflect, integrate, and go deeper with the information, experiences and homework from sessions one and two. We will engage with specific tools to bring light and free expression to all that we have uncovered to illuminate the treasures of your shadow.
