Do you feel pain during or after sex? Have you struggled to enjoy intimacy or avoided talking with your partner about your pain? You might feel alone, but there are literally millions of people across the country who understand what you’re going through! Unfortunately, many people believe that they can’t enjoy sex due to their condition, and often folks will disregard their own needs in the bedroom or forgo sex altogether. If you or someone you love lives with endometriosis, pelvic myalgia, vaginismus, or regular pain during/after sex, this class is for you. We’ll explore how to confidently communicate your needs, how to expand your sexual horizons, and we’ll dive into the best tips, toys, and tricks for building the vibrant sex life you deserve!

Elle Hurley is a public speaker, author, and nonprofit fundraiser dedicated to fighting for folks living with chronic conditions. She contributes to the Endometriosis Foundation of America and has engaged communities across Oregon through her work with organizations like PERIOD, the Valley AIDS Information Project, and the Hemophilia Foundation of Oregon. She is passionate about sex education and public health and knows first-hand what can happen when people feel disempowered to speak up about their pain. She loves to share her story, and she’s excited to hear yours, too!

We’re offering 2 free class spots to folks with financial need; please fill out this form if you are interested. Two people will be chosen randomly and contacted at least 2 weeks prior to class to confirm.
