Curious are you? Come experience a taste of kinky at our Sensation Play Party, where experienced facilitators will help you uncover hidden and not so hidden places in the recesses of your desire.

Before we get started, kids, there will be a short class by teachers Charlie Glickman, PhD, and Gabriella Cordova on kink etiquette, boundary setting, and other useful information (if you don’t pass the test you will be sent to the corner of the room where you will be suitably disciplined.) We will help you ascertain, if you are a top, bottom, or switch (but you probably already have a suspicion!)

Next, you will be introduced to our various tasting stations where you can go and try out things you’ve, always fantasized about or that you simply can’t get enough of. After that we will turn you lose to play on your own, under the watchful eyes of our Kinky Angels. For this part you can opt to stay with your partner(s) or be paired up, your choice.
Menu of Sensations (blindfolded or not, your choice)

• Tied up
• Tickled
• Hair play (soft to hard)
• Massage (gentle to savage)
• Fur, gloves, spikes, brushes, scarves, metal
• Sensory deprivation
• Tastes

If you are experienced, and want to be one of the givers or if you would like to serve as an Angel, contact Gabriella (503-750-2323).

Come in costume or bring something sexy to slip into; toplesness is very okay at this event.
Special note: If you identify as a straight male, we ask that you come with a female counterpart, otherwise, be prepared to simply observe.

Sex-Positivity- Understand it, Love it, Live it!
January 19, 2-4 pm
At the Lotus Heart Center, 4124 N. Mississippi Avenue, Portland, OR
$15 in advance, $20 at the door
Get tickets here.

Sex-positivity is a term that gets used a lot, but what does it really mean? What does it look like, and what can we do with it? There’s a lot to unpack, which means we have a lot of different ways to work with it. Charlie Glickman PhD has been exploring these questions for over twenty years and he’ll guide you through the tangle. Gabriella Cordova has been actively redefining and guiding the sex-positive movement in Portland through the creation of such events as ErosFest, Sex at Dawn at the Bagdad Theater, and Sex-Positive Portland, the Meetup group. And she has been fervently spreading the gospel through her nonprofit by the same name, to cities far and wide.

~ An way of thinking?
~ A movement?
~ A revolution?
~ How does sex-negativity affect me, and why is sex positivity important?

Together, through presentation and guided discussion, we’ll examine some of the negative ideas towards sex that shape personal and cultural attitudes, examine what sex-positivity is, explore some useful tools for integrating sex-positivity into our work (for therapists, physicians, social workers, parents), and talk about the limits of sex-positivity as a concept. The more you understand what sex-positivity means to you, the more easily you can open to it, talk about, and live it. Whether you’re new to the idea or you’ve been working with it for years, come get some new ways to talk about sexuality and sex-positivity!

Watch and Learn as Real Sex Educators Go Head To Head and Reveal Their Best Bedroom Moves…

What better way to learn about practical sex education that you can actually use than to watch four sex educators literally go head to head?

Let’s face it, sex is one of the few things we’re not allowed to learn by watching others. You go to a fancy dinner. You don’t know which spoon to use. You watch to see what spoon everyone else uses… But don’t know what to do how in the bedroom, or want to add a few tricks to your repertoire? No such luck!
Until now…

Tonight’s Iron Slut Sex Educators:
Monique Darling
VS.
Lawrence Lanoff

Sabrina Morgan

(maybe a surprise or two)

Location:The address is above. You’ll receive the suite number when you register.

Show up to this Rated-R and NC-17 workshop designed to empower adults around their sex lives and get folks smiling!

Show up to this fun-filled, 3 hour workshop and learn:
* What sex educators do under the covers and how
* Their best tips and tricks (and probably not the kind you read about in Cosmo)
* Their favorite, black belt sexy-sexy time moves!
* And much, much more…

\We can’t promise you badly dubbed voice-overs or high-jinx dramma like television’s Iron Chef, but we can promise you some down-to-earth, applicable sex and relationship education. The only theme ingredient is education!

Iron Slut is a wealth of sex geekery and informative experience that you don’t want to miss.
If you were a big fan of “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours” as a kid, or you always wished there was a reality show called “Shagging With the Stars,” then this workshop might be for you. Tell your friends. Bring a date. Bring a note book, too, while you’re at it!

Because of this workshop’s explicit and frank nature and live demonstrations, no one under 18 admitted. Please try to arrive on time.
