No matter how satisfying sex is, or how good we are at it, there are recurring periods when we feel a bit stuck, or plateaued, or mundane. This is natural. All living beings are programmed by their DNA to be attracted to novelty. So, when we are in a state of lowered sexual novelty, there is something we can do. We can Switch! People, on average, have a preference towards being dominant, or submissive. In other words, we usually slide comfortably into one, or the other. It takes a bit of extra effort, or is nearly impossible to, play the other role. The other role might feel scary, awkward, unnatural, or simply uncomfortable. And, we may not really know why. The why will be an important part of this class! We will create a safe space to explore what comes up, when we contemplate being the initiator, giver, and dominator, instead of a receiver, and vice versa. And then, once we have embraced the idea, how do we make it happen? How would we really want to play it out? And how would we make that request of a partner. Lucky you! Ace Cuddle Party, Play Party, and Puja leader, Monique Darling, will be on hand to lead us in exercises that will give us a chance to practice those negotiations. For this class, the role of Top and Bottom, Dom and Sub, or Giver and Receiver, is not gender specific. We will discuss the possibilities of, and differences between male and female switching. That will certainly include female use of toys and strap ons, and male anal penetration. Why does it feel good enough to women with strap ons, that they can orgasm from it? Why does stimulation of the male prostate feel so good? Come to this class to find out! Come and get a taste of some new ways to make your sex play novel. Love Exchange is $30 per person, or $50 per pair Please RSVP HERE: About your Facilitators: Monique Darling, workshop facilitator extraordinaire has led over 800 workshops in the past 5 years.
