How to Be a Sex-Positive Medical Provider
Wednesday, April 25th — 7:30 p.m. — $15
Do you work in healthcare and wish you had more resources for patients who have sex and relationship questions? Do you sometimes feel embarrassed talking to patients about their sex lives? Sex is a quality of life issue for most people, and knowing how to discuss the subject with patients is key — whether it’s someone needing a dilator set, a lubricant that doesn’t cause irritation, information on kink, etc.
In this informative class, Hunter Riley will go over how healthcare providers can help their patients feel more comfortable talking about sex, sexuality, relationships, gender and more. Small independent sex shops like She Bop can offer the support and guidance that so many people crave, but due to time constraints, aren’t always able to offer training programs for providers themselves. This workshop is geared specifically toward those in healthcare and helping professions.
We will talk about:
- How prepared and comfortable do you feel right now to address client issues surrounding sexuality?
- What biases or beliefs do you hold regarding sexuality, and how can you address them?
- How do sex shops play a role in supporting people with their relationship and sex questions and challenges?
Hunter Riley is a sex educator, speaker and social media maven and manages the medical outreach program at Self Serve Toys in Albuquerque. She has presented and trained with different organizations including university hospitals, med schools, mental health provider conferences, nursing conferences, sexual assault nurse examiners, and more.
