Ever wonder what all those letters stood for? Now you can find out! Learn about the basics of kink play, the difference between a whip, a flogger and a paddle, and what it means to be in a 24-7 relationship. Understand the differences between fantasy (like 50 Shades of Grey) and how to turn those thoughts into your own sexy reality, and how to bring up a little kink action in the bedroom to your partner. Whether you’re looking to join the local scene or just to add some spice into the bedroom, this is a great overview for anyone.

Plus, thanks to the amazing Crystal Delights, I’ll be giving away a glass toy with a Swavorski crystal base to one lucky attendee. Hope to see you there!

Hey folks!

This coming Thursday is special. Not only is it my half birthday (hurray to me!), but I’m also putting on a FREE Strap On 101 workshop at the Aurora, CO Fascinations store. It’s at 7pm at Fascinations 2680 S. Havana St, Aurora, CO, and is open to EVERYONE 18+. Strap On Sex can be enjoyed by people of all genders, orientations, sexes, ability levels, etc. Plus, free snacks, and a raffle for gift cards and toys at the end. The first 10 people to attend each get a $10 gift card.

Come learn all about the joys and pleasures of strapping it on. Discuss the pros and cons of different kinds of harnesses (ever wonder what the difference is between a g-string and a dual strap?), learn how to properly inset cocks and dildos into the rings, and contemplate a plethora of positions. This class is open to singles, couples and more-somes of all sexes and genders (we’ll cover pegging too, as well as using harnesses for cuckolding). Never used a harness before? That’s fine – we’ll start with the basics. Plus, everyone will get to try on harnesses with toys to get a feel for the different styles, as well as figure out what works best for them if they so choose. Come ready to play!

See you there!

This week brings me back to my homeland; Colorado!

The title is a bit deciving — while I will be spending a good deal of my time in Denver, I’ll also be heading down to Colorado Springs tonight to do a Sex Toy 101 event at Colorado College, and check out our new Fascinations store that just opened in Colorado Springs.

Thursday the 14th is a busy day, starting with a 7am interview/talk show with Lewis and Floorwax on the Fox. Please tune in! Then, Thursday night at 7pm is a 100% FREE sex ed workshop at the Aurora Fascinations. It’s call What’s Up with the Butt? Anal 101 and is great for everyone who is interested in anal sex, whether they’ve tried it or not, regardless of gender, orientation, etc. It’s going to be super fun! Plus, the first 20 people to show up get $10 gift cards for Fascinations, and everyone gets refreshments and the chance to enter a raffle for toys, gift cards and more! It’ll be at 2680 S. Havana Ave in Aurora, 7pm.

Friday, I’m doing a private all staff training for the Colorado Fascinations employees, checking out a venue for my wedding next fall, attending a friend’s wedding, and then rocking out at the Skull FUK (Fetish und Kink) party at the RACK Room.

Saturday, I’m planning to hang out with my best friend, and hopefully do a shoot for GoodDykePorn.

If you’re in Colorado, I’d love to see you while I’m out there. And if you’re interested in having me come speak at a campus/store/center/dungeon near you, please contact me!

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!
