Sunday, April 14th — 7:30 p.m. — $20

She helps her clients understand their unique arousal wiring so that they can experience magnetic attraction, sexual aliveness, and loving connection.

Sleek, subtle, and sexy in appearance, and sure to send a message to all who may see it. It comes in jet black and baby pink, to fit anyone’s style, and two different sizes! Who WOULDN’T want to sport one of these darling collars?

Tease and Please Set

Tease and Please Set

Who says you can’t have it all? The Tease and Please set, a collaboration by We-Vibe and Womanizer, certainly says otherwise. It includes the We-Vibe Sync, a rechargeable, wearable dual vibe that stimulates both the G-spot and the clitoris and can be worn while receiving vaginal penetration, and the Womanizer Premium, a rechargeable clitoral stimulator with 12 levels of intensity that uses pleasure flow technology to simulate a suction stimulation on the clitoris! Both come with two year warranties and incredible added features.

The We-Vibe Sync can connect to the We-Connect App, a free application that lets you pair your device to your lover’s We-Vibe. Once connected, you can control the We-Vibe from ANY distance (seriously, from different countries even), and set your own vibration patterns in fun creative ways, like setting your own vibration playlists! The Womanizer Premium comes with a smart silence feature, meaning it will only turn on when it’s in close contact with skin, so no loud, excess noise. And with a price point that saves you $100 off their retail prices, you are in for a sweet deal all around!

Its manta-ray shape isn’t just meant to be aesthetically pleasing, it also enhances the power of the motor and adds motion to the vibration. Not to mention its convenient ridges on the inside of the toy’s wings, meant to help evenly distribute lubricant.

Use the Manta as a solo stroker, either moving it up and down the shaft or holding it in place at the base or head of the penis, or as a couples’ toy, using it to essentially turn the penis into a vibrator or as an assistant for oral, simulating a deep-throat sensation. The Manta is fully waterproof and comes with 6 modes of intensity and 6 patterns, as well as a 2 year warranty. What’s not to love?

How To Be A Sex-Positive Healthcare Provider

Thursday, March 14th — 7:30 p.m. — $25

Evelin DackerSexuality is often disregarded when assessing our patient’s health and happiness. Our own personal values, lack of knowledge, and discomfort around talking about sex are barriers to obtaining a holistic understanding of our patients.

This class taught by Evelin Dacker, MD will help address and educate medical providers and healthcare professionals on becoming comfortable and successful in addressing the sexual concerns of our patients and provide tools to do so.

Evelin Dacker, MD is a sex-positive primary care doctor. She is board certified in Family Medicine and has a board certification in Holistic and Integrative Medicine, and a certification from the Institute for Functional Medicine. She specializes in Women’s Health, hormones, nutrition, and sexual healing.
