Shanna and Vivianne the Vulva Puppet

While I have only visited Oregon once (in memory — I went there once before I turned one year old), I love it. It reminds me of my beautiful Colorado — the green-ness, the friendly people, the mom and pop shops next to chains. It’s just a great place.

After my Oregon trip, while speaking at Sex 2.0 in Seattle, I was lucky enough to meet the fabulous feminists/sex positive folk who own Our Enigma, a sexuality store in Salem, OR. The two of them were been kind enough have me in Salem so I can put on my How Many Licks? Adventures in Cunnilingus workshop. I love talking about and teaching about cunnilingus, and I’m sure you awesome folk in Portland love learning about it too. Plus, I’m bringing Vivianne (my vulva puppet), and she’s always good for a fun time!

Where?

Enigma

1326 State St

Salem, OR
Cost is $15 ($10 for students), which is great — you can buy them in store or call them up EDIT: You can also buy them online! . Only 30 seats are available! What are you waiting for?!?!
Hope to see you there…

Shanna Katz and her butt puppets

One of my favorite workshops to teach is What’s Up with the Butt — Anal 101. I’ll be teaching it tomorrow night in Tucson, Arizona, at the Fascinations store there. This class, however, is going to be extra super duper special. Why? In addition to talking about have to have safe, healthy and pleasurable anal sex, how to incorporate safer sex into anal play, and what sex toys are good for butt play, I’ll also be debuting my TWO new, anatomically correct butt puppets, as seen above. On the left is Andi the Anus, and the right shows Riley the Rectum. I love making sex education fun AND informational, and I’m sure that these puppets will certainly help (I also have Vivianne, my vulva puppet, and she always is in high demand). Anyways, this butt class is going to be fun and super awesome!

Time: 7pm

Cost: FREE (first 20 attendees get a $10 gift card to the store)

Where:

Fascinations

3658 E Speedway Blvd

Tucson, AZ 85716

(520) 322-0757

No RSVP needed, but seating is limited, so first come, first sat.

Also included are food, drinks, and a raffle!

I hope to see some of you all there.

Here is a video of one of my classes at Fascinations back in the beginning of August in Scottsdale, AZ, talking about G-spot play, female ejaculation, vulvar anatomy, and much more. From my vulva puppet Vivianne, to fabulous sex toys, to lots of laughing (both me and the students), this is a fun and educational video about the G-spot and all that it entails. Even if you know lots about g-spot play, female ejacuation and the anatomy of a vulva, I think that everyone can always learn SOMETHING from every workshop.

I hope you enjoy it!

Hey all –

It’s a few months old, but I finally found a recording of my June Anal 101 class (entitled “What’s Up with the Butt”) that is in pretty good shape. It’s before I got my anal puppet sadly (I’ll try and get a picture of that up shortly), but if you weren’t able to come to the class, or were, and want to learn more about posterior pleasure, rectal revelry, or good old fashioned butt sex, please watch it and enjoy! My hope is that you learn something, or at least get a good laugh or two at my expense.

Shanna Katz Full Spectrum Sexuality

July 15th Workshop

To all of you who are in the Denver Metro area; I invite you to my FREE workshop this Thursday at the  Fascinations in Arvada, CO, at 7pm. Again, it’s free to all who come, and every one who attends this workshop will get a $10 gift card (good in any of the stores, or online at Funlove.com , as well as food and drink, and an entry in a raffle to win gift cards and more.

We often talk about sex acts, but it’s rare that we sit down and talk about sexuality as a whole. Is it ok to masturbate in a relationship? Why exactly do we talk about “lube is love?” How do I introduce sex toys into my relationship? What if I’m not horny. All these are topics for discussion, as well as sex toy 101, info about materials, lubes and more.

Hope to see you there!

I’ll be in Seattle this weekend, at Sex 2.0 2010.

I was lucky enough to go last year in Washington, DC (thanks to a little help from a friend who hired me to edit her novel). This year, I’m going thanks to Fascinations, who is also a Gold Sponsor of the event.

Like last year, I’m speaking, but less last minute. I’m doing a workshop on The Intersections of Sexuality and Disability Saturday morning at 10am. The rest of the weekend, I’ll be attending sessions, speaking with people I’ve missed, connecting with new friends and contacts, and more.

In case you’d like to know about my class – here is the description:
This is part class, part support group, part community organizing that is geared towards people who identify as those with disabilities or as dis/abled , and their partners (dis/ability is self defined and can include cognitive, mental, and physical ability levels). This talk is very discussion based, and will cover topics such as coming out to your partner(s), how to discuss ability levels with friends, partners, family, etc, new things to try regarding sex (positions, meds, toys), correct terminology, negotiating sex play (including kink/BDSM play), and much more. Participants are encouraged to share suggestions, trade ideas, work on creating a community and more. Great for people of all ability levels (and their partners) who want to recognize themselves as sexual beings.
