Five Ways To Say No

September 13, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm PDT

$15 – $25
Leah Carey

This class will be held LIVE online via Zoom — Zoom links are sent out 3 days prior and then again 1 hour prior to start time. The class will be partially recorded and available for a limited time shortly following the class. Registration deadline: 1 hour prior to class PST. No day-of cancellations.

In the sex-positive community, we say “if it isn’t a hell yes, it’s a hell no!” That’s great in theory, but what happens when someone is looking at you expectantly and waiting for an answer to their proposition?

If you falter, then torture yourself the next day for not saying no when you “should” have, you’re not alone. The problem isn’t you! Our culture gives us mixed messages about our ability and worthiness to say no, and we never have a chance to practice it in a non-pressured environment.

In this class with Leah Carey, we’ll practice saying a confident “no.” By the end of the class, you will have experience saying “no” in a variety of different contexts, from “hell no!” to “I don’t have energy for that right now.”

Our time together will include:

  • Group discussion about why saying “no” is difficult
  • Tips and practice with different types of “no” you might want to say
  • On-the-spot coaching so you can see the skills in action

Come join us in a fun, participatory session where saying “no” will be joyful and hearing “no” will be music to your ears.

Leah Carey is a Sex and Intimacy coach and host of the podcast “Good Girls Talk About Sex.” Her superpower is radical empathy. When you work with Leah, she reflects your true sexual nature back to you without judgment, so you can see yourself without shame. She works with individuals and couples eager to explore new avenues of their sexuality and fulfill their greatest desires, like: diving back into the dating pool after a long time away, having first-time queer experiences, investigating consensual non-monogamy, or learning how to communicate about kink.

We partner with Bloom Community, a queer + sex-positive social and dating app! Follow She Bop on Bloom to see our upcoming events and connect with the community.
