From the ins and outs of anatomy, to the basics of blow jobs and eating out…and the intricacies of anal to a 101 of kink and what it is, this is a class about pleasure. Sexual Pleasure.

We’ll talk about butts, penises, vulvas and more (and yes, of course the puppets will be there!). We’ll talk sex toys. We’ll talk communication skills, and tips and techniques for sexual activities.

It gets better: 100% of the proceeds will be split between the Center for Sex Positive Culture Colorado and the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health.

Invite everyone!

Shanna Katz, M.Ed, ACS is a queer kinky disabled feisty femme board certified sexologist, sexuality educator and professional pervert. From topics like vaginal fisting to non-monogamy, and oral sex to how sexuality and dis/ability intersect, she talks, writes and teaches about the huge spectrum of sexuality, both from personal and professional perspectives. She’s using her Master’s of Sexuality Education to provide accessible, open-source sex education to people around the country. For more info, please visit her sexuality education site, www.ShannaKatz.com. Questions about the class? Please email shannakatz@gmail.com

***Note: I am aware this is on Erev Rosh Hashannah. However, that is when I was able to get the space donated for free by the generous Dangerous Theater. Ergo, that is when it will be. My apologies if that interferes with your high holy day plans, and I don’t blame you if you’ll be at Schul instead!***

Hey folks of Colorado –

Colorado Youth Matter (an awesome non-profit advocating for evidence based sex education inclusion in schools) is creating (through a partnership with Advocates for Youth) a Youth Advocacy Council. Now, they’re looking for people ages 15-22, so whether you fall in that range, or know a passionate person who does, and if you or they have a passion for inclusive sex education, now is the time to apply! You’ll get a stipend, plus a trip to a national AFY meeting, the opportunity to work on creating change, and much more. The info is below. Ready, set,…..check it out!

Shanna

Colorado Youth Matter in partnership with Advocates for Youth is searching for passionate youth and young adult activists from across Colorado to be part of a brand new Youth Advocacy Council!

The Colorado Youth Advocacy Council will be composed of 10 dynamic young people (ages 15-22) from around the state who will work together to advocate for comprehensive and inclusive sex education programs and policies in Colorado. Council members will take a grassroots approach to mobilizing communities around comprehensive sex education, social and reproductive justice, and other related policy issues by engaging communities to create opportunities that empower youth and their families to make healthy and informed decisions regarding their reproductive and sexual health.

Please pass this information and application on to all youth and young adults who you believe would be great activists to promote sexual and reproductive health. Feel free to pass this information along to others as well, as they may know someone who would be best for the job!

Click here to download an application or contact Joey at jtorres@coloradoyouthmatter.org with any questions. The deadline to apply is August 1, but applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.

Thank you,
