Relationships on Purpose

Sunday, October 13th — 7:30 pm — $25

Dr. Liz Powell

Are you tired of falling into relationships that don’t fit for you? Do you feel like you’re not getting your needs met by your partners? Learn how to stop feeling frustrated and start getting what you want and need from your relationships!

Most people when they date “end up” in their relationships. What if we consciously designed them instead? Instead of worrying that no one will ever “get” you, or that you’re doomed to failed relationships, this class by Dr. Liz will set you up with a “user manual” that will help any partner show up for you the way you want and need!

In this workshop, we’ll practice thinking about the factors that make for a strong relationship that’s the right fit for you. You’ll explore what commitment means to you and what commitments you’re making to your partners and yourself. In addition, you’ll get dedicated time to explore what your wants and needs look like in relationships, looking at factors like time, how you feel love, how you show love, and the nitty gritty of how relationships unfold.

Stop building your relationships without a blueprint — construct your relationships on purpose!

Dr. Liz believes that great sex can change the world. She’s a sex educator, coach and licensed psychologist (CA 27871) specializing in queer, kinky, and non-monogamous relationships. Dr. Liz has helped couples and singles become more confident in who they are and communicate more effectively with their partners. You can learn more about Dr. Liz and her work on her website.

10% Tuesdays for Bitch are back! Throughout the month of August, 10% of our sales on Tuesdays will go to the non-profit organization Bitch Media. Bitch’s mission is to encourage an engaged, thoughtful feminist response to mainstream media and popular culture.

We are big fans of Bitch. They’re an invaluable voice in the feminist discourse. We constantly find ourselves wanting to signal boost the stuff they publish — like their account of dildo innovation, their history of American sex ed films, their interview with the author of Big Big Love, their sex worker series “The H-Word,” their interview with sex diary purveyor Arianne Cohen, and their BDSM series “Thinking Kink.”

But it’s not just their blog that’s amazing; their print magazine, which has been in circulation since 1996, is still going strong. Bitch also hosts awesome events, fosters a community lending library at their headquarters in NE Portland, and publishes an array of fun podcasts for your listening pleasure. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute tidbits!

Whether you are a long-time devotee or a newbie to this awesome magazine and non-profit organization, you can now be a supporter and get some fabulous sex toys to boot. Drop by She Bop or shop online on any Tuesday in August to support Bitch!

Great Sex During Pregnancy, Postpartum, & Early Parenthood

Thursday, September 5th — 7:30 p.m. — $15

Are you a new parent puzzled by how and when to fit sex into your busy life? Expecting and wanting to know how to have great sex during pregnancy and/or postpartum? This workshop by educators Amory Jane and Jessie Fresh takes a fun, thoughtful, and realistic approach to staying physically intimate and emotionally connected through pregnancy, postpartum, and the first couple years of parenthood.

Amory Jane and Jessie Fresh will challenge traditional ideas about sex and kink for pregnant and postpartum bodies, go over positions that work well during all three trimesters, and share advice on how to have great sex through hormone changes, exhaustion, and new identities. We’ll also focus on postpartum healing, what to expect or prepare for after you or your partner have given birth, and how to communicate through so many major transitions. We’ll also answer any questions you may have, such as how to date each other again after becoming parents, where to have sex if you’re co-sleeping, and much much more!

AJ and Jessie hope to create an inclusive class for all kinds of people who may be going through major life, relationship, and body changes due to pregnancy hormones or becoming parents. This includes queer parents, people who are parents after adopting, sex after surrogacy or pregnancy loss, and “non-traditional” parents who may or may not be genetically related to offspring they are helping to raise.

Amory Jane is veteran sex educator and mother of a toddler, with a background in Couples & Family Therapy. Jessie Fresh is a licensed Erotic Coach who has over 13 years of experience in early childhood development, and who engineered a way to thrive in her sex life during postpartum. They are both passionate about supporting parents to have more love, connection, and joy in their lives.
