Self-Love Saturday: Re-Imagining Sex, Pleasure, & Intimacy
October 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This workshop is intended to encourage participants to reflect upon their current understandings around sex, pleasure and intimacy–and explore where those messages and narratives came from. After intentional discussion and activity-based reflection, participants will have an opportunity to offer insights and words of advice to their younger (perhaps sexual) selves.
Attendees will be entered into a raffle to win a Sensual Self Box, full of quirk and fun! Join Sam Casanova for an intimacy-based workshop rooted in storytelling and intentional dialogue. As Black folks, we deserve sexual & intimate experiences that make us feel good and make us feel safe.
