For those who don’t follow me on Facebook or Twitter, I recently had some of my sex tips published, along side sex educators Megan Andelloux and Sadie Allison, in the November issue of Cosmo.

Unfortunately, that issue is already off shelves. Luckily, a friend scanned her copy for me, so if you’d like to check out some of our ideas on how to please your partner (let’s be real – this is Cosmo…so how to please a man) with your mouth, outside of “give him a blow job,” you can click on the pictures below. If you want to check out other Cosmo tips, check out their sex advice section. You can also read my sexuality advice column over at Out Front Colorado.

Hey Folks!

I’ll be in San Diego April 28th-May 1st, and have some open slots for one on one, two on one, three on one, etc sex coaching and counseling sessions, as well as invididual or group classes and workshops. Go ahead and contact me to let me know if you’d be interested in booking me while I’m in town, and we’ll get everything set up. Both counseling/coaching and workshops are on a sliding scale to be accessible for everyone!

Hey folks!

Now that I am back in Denver and getting a little bit more settled, I wanted to let you know that I am now offering my services in Denver, the surrounding areas, and even Colorado Springs, Ft. Collins, Greeley, Pueblo and more as needed!

What kind of services do I offer?

Sex Coaching and Relationship Counseling

What does this mean? All relationships need communication, and whether you and your partner(s) have been together two weeks, two years or two decades, sometimes it can help to have someone to listen, give advice and assign fun homework. Your relationship doesn’t have to be rocky to come see me. Couples (and triads, groups, etc) have seen me about everything from trying new sexual activities, adding more romance, getting back in the sexual groove after years together/after having kids/after illness, exploring orientations or other aspects of sexuality, reigniting that spark, looking into swinging/non-monogamy, etc. This is certainly not an exhaustive list!

Perhaps you’re currently single, or in a relationship and would like to see me one on one. Also completely fine! We’ll talk about flirting skills, exploring your sexuality, being open to new experiences, figuring out what it is that you’re actually looking for, working through past relationships/trauma and more.

I am open to talking with people (18+) about the spectrum of sexuality, relationships and sexual activity. I’m kink friendly, poly friendly, LGBTQ inclusive/friendly, and am non-judgmental. If I don’t have the answer(s) or ability to help, I’m happy to research for you, or refer you to someone I think better for helping you out. All of this is done on a sliding scale; please pay what you can afford to help me continue to be able to provide these services to people of all financial levels. Just contact me to schedule a time. Not in CO? I’m happy to provide these services over Skype as well.

Private Classes

Want to thrill your friends with a blow job class? Interesting in hosting a pussy love party? Want to share the experience of learning about sex toys with friends and loved ones? All of this can happen if you book me for a private class. Any and all of my workshops, kink classes and college presentations are available for private classes, and I’m always happy to create new ones as well. Whether it is just you and your lover, or a gals night in, or queer brunch, or the monthly munch for your group, I’m excited to share my take on sexuality with you and yours. Please contact me about scheduling such an event! I also do sex-positive sex toy parties with only body-friendly toys.

Looking forward to meeting you and exploring the huge spectrum of sexuality together!

Vaginal Fisting for One and All (NEW)
Monday, September 27,
6-8 pm
$25 in advance, $30 at the door

Fisting is one of those words that makes people say “ooooh!” Sometimes, it’s an “I’m so excited about that” way, and other times it’s more of a “you want me to put WHAT in my WHERE?” response. If you’re curious about fisting, come learn from an expert. Shanna Katz will explain vaginal fisting is (and what it isn’t), how to introduce it into your relationships, what you need to think about in regards to safety, why lube is so important and more. Everyone can use a helping hand when it comes to fisting, so come one, come all, and really get to understand the amazing ins and outs of vaginal fisting.

To register for this workshop, please visit http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/112656

Right Foot Red, Left Hand Lube: Sex Positions for Everyone (NEW)
Tuesday, September 28,
6-8 pm
$25 in advance, $30 at the door

Forget the Kama Sutra and Tantra. Leave your sex swing at home. Shanna Katz is here to tell you all about sex positions that anyone can do; no fancy hardware or spiritual revelations needed. We’ll talk about everything from Missionary to Froggy Style, Reverse Cowgirl to the Sneaky Vampire. Want a threesome? Got positions for that. Have arthritis? We’ve got positions for that. Ready to integrate sex toys into the bedroom (or shower, or car)? Check. Bring your favorite position in mind, and be ready to try out new positions (with clothes on) as we sex-plore our way through the endless types of positions available to us. Open to singles, couples and more-somes, and people of all gender and orientations.

Ain’t Nothing but a G-Thing: G-Spot Play!

Ain't nothing but a G-thing class

This Thursday (August 5th), I’m teaching a free class in Scottsdale, AZ for Fascinations on G-spot play. It’ll include some talk on the anatomy of the G-spot (what it is, where it is, and of course, Viviane the Vulv Puppet), how we can find, stimulate and play with the G-spot, and even a little bit on female ejaculation. Whether you’re a newbie or a Grafenberg Spot Guru, this class promises to be fun and informative for everyone.

Ain't Nothing but a G-thing

Plus, the first twenty people who show up get a FREE $10 gift card to Fascinations. Add to that food, drinks and raffle, and what more could you want out of sex education? 18+ only please. Store is accessible.

Hope to see you there!

Smartballs Teneo Duo

As you may have seen from some of my reviews (or heard in some of my classes), I’m a big proponent of everyone with a vagina/hole/cunt/pussy/va-jay-jay or whatever you’d like to call it, being the proud owner of a pair of kegel exercise balls.

Why? Because unless you’re very good and regimented about sitting (or lying) around each day, squeezing your PC muscles multiple times, you probably could use a little help working out your pelvic floor muscles. Kegel balls are great for this, because they work while you move around; if you’re running errands, heading across campus, wheeling down the block, etc, the smaller balls inside the bigger balls rumble/vibrate a little, helping your body work out the muscles, even if you aren’t conscious of doing it. It’s working them out without even having to think about it.

How can they help? Strong PC muscles (aka, kegel muscles or pelvic floor muscles) can make orgasms easier to achieve, make them stronger, longer, and more intense, can help the owner of said muscles get in better touch with their own body, can make labor easier, and recovery from birth quicker, as well as prevent incontinence as you get older. See, balls can be a great thing!

Top three suggestions?

If you’re a newbie, start with the Smartballs Teneo Uno. It’s just one ball (rather than 2), so it’s an easier start, and less intimidating. As you get better and better, and stronger and stronger, you can move to the Teneo Duo.

If you’re trying to stay on the more affordable end of things, check out the Couture‘s line of kegel balls called “Couture Eclipse.”  Still body friendly, and a bit lighter on the wallet, these can be a good option.

Want something with a bit of texture to it? I’d suggest looking at Ophoria’s K-Balls Textured (although these are also available in a smooth option for those who prefer). Not everyone loves the texture, but those who do, swear by it!

As a note, remember these are NOT anus-safe, and should not be used in the back door!
