Having trouble locating or experiencing the pleasures of the G-spot? We want to educate you on how exactly this erectile tissue may want to be approached, prove that it does indeed exist, as well as offer tips on how to experience that trick of all boudoir tricks: female ejaculation!

Happy Couples: science reveals their secrets

What makes a relationship happy?

Science offers valuable assistance in answering that. New research identifies the core behaviors common to happy couples.

Much of this information comes from remarkable laboratories configured as apartments where couples cohabit while observed by psychologists. After just a few hours experts can predict with a surprising degree of accuracy the couples who are happy and the ones headed for separation.

You can apply this knowledge to increase the happiness in your own relationship.

This seminar will outline the findings of this valuable area of research and give you ideas to improve your connection with your partner, such as:
* Regularly expressing appreciation
* Deliberately cultivating novelty in your relationship
* Responding to your partner’s “bids” for attention
* Forgiveness
* Non-sexual physical contact.

Vaginal Pain…It’s not in your head!

Do you experience pain with intercourse? It’s not in your head! Many women suffer from a common and often misunderstood vaginal pain condition called vulvar vestibulodynia, also know as vulvar vestibulitis syndrome or vulvodynia. Pain can be experienced with intercourse or other sexual contact. Some women also experience discomfort with tampon use, a medical exam, riding a bike, sitting, or wearing tight pants. You will leave this seminar informed about this condition - the causes, treatment and supports – enabling you to make informed decisions regarding your health care and sexuality. 1 1/2 hrs long

Turn Off Turn On

Most of us know what turns us on but not why it turns us on. We may know the body types we find attractive or that we like to have sex in hotels or with leather pants and spiked heels or with a fantasy going on in our minds eye but we may not understand the reasons for these preferences.

Join us this evening and shed some light on your understanding of the mysterious nature of arousal and the secret logic of sexual fantasies. This logic helps us accept the deeper levels of our own psyches and helps us to be less critical of our own or our partner’s choices in the sexual realm. This evening is for anybody who is curious about their sexuality choices or that of others. Concepts are based on a book by Dr. Michael J Bader and his Book called “Arousal”.

True Sex Stories

We rarely talk about our sexual lives.
Yet sexuality is such a rich part of our lives and we benefit in many ways when we can open up about it.

We will create a safe environment to do that.
Come and tell your sexual story and listen to those of others.
If you have it in written format (like many writers have) you are welcome to read it.

Sharing your secrets with other people who are doing the same can be a powerfully liberating experience. It can also save thousands in therapy!

We promise the evening will be educational, entertaining, and stirring!

Some stories maybe be positive and uplifting and others may be sad and painful. Our true sex stories include the whole range of sexual experience. 

Examples are:
- Losing your virginity at 58
- Selling panties on the web and meeting the guys who buy them
- A macho guy's first prostate stimulated orgasm
- Watching your parents get it on
- Becoming a sugar daddy and…
- …becoming his girl
- Living with a very short penis
- A first trip to the dungeon (not the one in a castle)
- Lovemaking as a religious or spiritual experience
- And more..!

Please attend only if you are willing to share about an event or two in your sexual history.

Tonight we delve back into the history of the pussy and gain understanding about the restrictive influences placed on it throughout time back to the middle ages.
