About the Workshops

The Art of Sexy (Miss Rosie Bitts)
Sexy is a state of being.It is the core of your personal power, what sets you on fire, what draws people to you. It is something that already resides within you and only needs space and safety to fully bloom. In The Art of Sexy, Rosie teaches from her heart what she has learned during her practice as a burlesque performer and teacher. She has coached hundreds of women and watched their 'sexy' blossom. Let go of old limiting beliefs, love your body and be the passionate, sexy woman you want to be.Join Rosie for a fun and inspirational full day class where you will let go of old ideas, start to truly love your body and redefine Sexy to include the Fabulousness that you already are.

Welcome to S&M: A Gentle Introduction (Jean Franzblau)
S&M (Sadism-Masochism)is one of the most misunderstood styles of sexual expression; this class provides a beginner's introduction from an experienced teacher in a safe and fun learning environment. Participants will be introduced to bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism and masochism with an emphasis on the philosophy of "safe, sane and consensual." There will be discussions, demonstrations and even opportunities to volunteer and participate. It's an unforgettable workshop that will cover a lot of ground.

Talking Dirty and Roleplay 101 (Tonya Jone Miller)
Would you like your actual sex life to be as hot as your fantasies? Have you or your lover ever pleaded, "talk dirty to me!" in the heat of passion? Is there a role-play you've wondered about but are too nervous to try? Learn the tricks of the trade from a professional actress and phone sex operator! Renowned aural courtesan Tonya Jone Miller uses basic acting theory and improv games to help you get past your self-judgment and into a creative, erotic headspace. Unlock your deepest desires and learn how to safely explore them in the realm of fantasy.

Sex & Creativity (Eleanor O'Brien)
We all have stories. We all feel arousal. We all have vivid imaginations!  What we often don't have in time or space or permission to explore those part of ourselves, to pay attention to what our sexuality has to tell us. Sex and Creativity is a workshop designed to facilitate creative expansion for artists of all kinds. Whether you are a writer, performer, or simply interested in tapping into greater creativity, this workshop will give you access to a rich vein of material.  Similar to the Artist Way, we will use different modalities to access the erotic imagination. Through writing exercises, games, and storytelling, you will discover the wealth of creativity you have inside of you, waiting to be unleashed!
