Voicing Your Desires (A Squirm Workshop with Kels & Tess)

April 3 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm PDT

$15 – $25

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 recorded and available for a limited time shortly following the class. Registration deadline: 1 hour prior to class Pacific. No day-of cancellations.

In this workshop, Kels & Tess from Squirm (Portland locals!) will help you craft your unique and specific answers to the question, “What are you into?” Together, we cover topics such as types of touch, moods and styles, settings, kinks, fantasies vs desires, and toys and props. We will focus not only on the words that you can use in describing preferences to a partner, but also provide you with prompts and exercises to continue discovering what you are into as your sexuality evolves.

What we will cover:

-Why this question is difficult (but important!)

-Components to crafting your unique answers

-Putting words to your overall desires as well as specific in-the-moment preferences

-Tips for communicating your desires with a partner

Squirm is an adult sex education platform that focuses on healthy sexual communication. From casual sex to committed relationships, the ability to express your sexual needs and desires leads to better, more satisfying experiences. Tess and Kels do this through approachable and inclusive offerings, such as workshops, an audio course, and their signature conversation deck, Nookie.

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.
