Whether it’s in the context of straight or queer sex, butt stuff is frequently shamed and looked down upon in the media, which sometimes views it as “emasculating” through its close-minded lens. But regardless of gender or sexuality, it is absolutely worth exploring! Hiding past all the shame are many delightful pathways to pleasure. And to help with that pleasure, many toys to make it much more fun.

This class with Aeryn Ayla will briefly touch on why anal sex is seen in a negative light and what we can do to help correct folks on how awesome it can be. Aeryn will discuss approaching the anus in a way that is gentle and forgiving for those who are new to it. She’ll chat about biology, techniques, and toys that can enhance your butt play. So come join us as we enter the back door and learn all about anal!
