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. As the #MeToo movement, gender concerns, and the diversification of relationship and sexual styles become more prominent in our culture, it is important that we become more aware of how to navigate these changes. 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. She is also the C.E.O of Sex Positive Portland and teaches classes on how to communicate with sexual partners (see timeforthetalk.com), sexually transmitted infections without shame, and personal boundaries and Consent.

If you are a healthcare practitioner, let us know in the notes when you sign up for this class so we can make sure we can supply you with a bag of discount coupons and lube samples to share with your patients!

How to Be a Sex-Positive Medical Provider

Wednesday, April 25th — 7:30 p.m. — $15

Hunter RileyDo you work in healthcare and wish you had more resources for patients who have sex and relationship questions? Do you sometimes feel embarrassed talking to patients about their sex lives? Sex is a quality of life issue for most people, and knowing how to discuss the subject with patients is key — whether it’s someone needing a dilator set, a lubricant that doesn’t cause irritation, information on kink, etc.

In this informative class, Hunter Riley will go over how healthcare providers can help their patients feel more comfortable talking about sex, sexuality, relationships, gender and more. Small independent sex shops like She Bop can offer the support and guidance that so many people crave, but due to time constraints, aren’t always able to offer training programs for providers themselves. This workshop is geared specifically toward those in healthcare and helping professions.

We will talk about:

  • How prepared and comfortable do you feel right now to address client issues surrounding sexuality?
  • What biases or beliefs do you hold regarding sexuality, and how can you address them?
  • How do sex shops play a role in supporting people with their relationship and sex questions and challenges?

Hunter Riley is a sex educator, speaker and social media maven and manages the medical outreach program at Self Serve Toys in Albuquerque. She has presented and trained with different organizations including university hospitals, med schools, mental health provider conferences, nursing conferences, sexual assault nurse examiners, and more.

If you are a health care practitioner, let us know in the notes when you sign up for this class so we can make sure we can supply you with a bag of discount coupons and lube samples to share with your patients!
