Mapping the Vulva: Licking, Touching, Teasing, & Talking

Wednesday, August 14th — 7:30 p.m. — $25

Stella HarrisThere is so much confusion surrounding vulvas that it’s become a pop-culture joke. Unfortunately, the joke is on us. With vulvas being a place of mystery (and worse, a source of shame), our ability to receive pleasure from this area of the body can be extremely diminished. This class will dispel misinformation and teach you all about the vulva — from anatomy to styles of touch. In addition to the external genitalia, we’ll also discuss the vagina, the G-spot, and the underlying anatomical structures.

With a focus on intimacy and connection, this class will cover styles of communication that will set both the giver and the receiver of touch at ease and give you tools to communicate your desires. There is a whole world of pleasure available if giver and receiver are willing to learn how to relax, open up, to touch and receive touch.

Using visual aids, sex toys, and vulva models, we’ll discuss everything from hand sex to oral sex as well as the use of toys — and ways to combine all three.

Tied Up, Now What?

Wednesday, July 17th — 7:30 p.m. — $25

Stella HarrisRope bondage has a huge appeal, but people often ask “what happens next?” This class by Stella Harris answers that question. We’ll cover ways to make rope the whole point of your scene, as well as ways to use rope to facilitate other kinds of play, like impact, pressure points, sensation, and yes, even sex.

Stella’s rope play has a focus on intimacy and connection, and she uses rope as a tool to facilitate those goals, rather than for its own sake. This class won’t be showing you any new knots or ties, instead it will use whatever rope skills you already have and build from there. Don’t worry if you only know the basics; even dragging rope sensually across the skin counts as rope play.

Bring some rope and a practice partner and be ready to participate in exercises — you may wish to bring a yoga mat or blanket, too.

Wet & Wild: G-spot and Squirting Orgasms

Stella HarrisWednesday, May 1st — 7:30 p.m. — $25

Ancient societies called it Amrita, the nectar of the gods. Pop culture regularly debates whether it’s urine. Whichever camp you fall in, squirting is a hot topic.

In this class, Stella Harris will cover internal and external anatomy with special emphasis on what is commonly known as the G-spot — but is becoming better understood as the clitourethrovaginal (CUV) complex. She’ll talk about everything from sex toys to touch techniques you can try alone or with a partner to experience an internal orgasm, and ways you can increase your chances of squirting.

Just as essential as sexual skills, Stella will discuss how to become comfortable with your body and with your partner, and ways to talk about touch and exploration that will put everyone at ease.

Wednesday, March 6th — 7:30 p.m. — $25

stella-harris-ropeDoes the idea of restraint turn you on? Do you want to learn the building blocks of rope bondage? In this class, Stella Harris will teach you basic safety along with the single column tie, double column tie, and a simple chest harness. With these fundamentals you will be able to improvise and create many different bondage positions and hot scenarios. You’ll also learn ways to use rope to build intimacy and connection while you’re tying, and tricks to help you build confidence as a beginner.

It’s ideal if you attend this class with a practice partner (please note that the $20 registration is per person), but folks who come alone may be able to pair off with other students, and most of these ties can also be practiced solo. Please bring rope if you have it, but some practice rope will be available. Absolute beginners are encouraged to attend!
