Empowering Women’s Relationships and Sex Lives through Community
Date: Feb. 19, Tuesday
Location: 928 Broadway, Suite 1002, 10th floor (btw 21st and 22nd St)
Tickets: $25 (only 12 spots total), http://skl.sh/V6bTD6
Who: This workshop is for women looking for a community of women to provide emotional support while going through the ups and downs of their relationships and sex lives.
What: A safe, nonjudgmental space to share our struggles and frustrations about our relationships and/or sex lives amongst a group of female peers.
Why: Because we are reenergized when we get to share and connect with other women. Because we need something to offset the isolation and self-blame from society’s harsh and oppressive messages.
How: Through paired listening and structured group sharing we gain and give support, as well as receive suggestions. Where we originally had given up hope, we come back recharged and emerge hopeful with renewed perspective ready to jump back in.
Q: “What if I already have a group of girlfriends?”
A: Some of us have an awesome community already. Maybe some of you just moved here. It’s hard to keep girlfriends after college, or people go off and get married and have kids. Everyone’s busy. Or maybe you don’t feel comfortable sharing these things because you know each other so well. Sometimes it feels much easier to talk with strangers about private, intimate things. The structured paired listening time is also really helpful.
Q: “How will this actually help improve my relationship?”
A: Most of us are pretty isolated with issues around our relationships, nevermind sex lives. We need to talk with other women, and realize we’re not the only ones with these issues. Emotional support is crucial. We can learn from each other, get ideas and suggestions, vent. After releasing our frustrations, we can gain strength and confidence in ourselves through these brief but safe connections and go back to our relationships with renewed perspective, energy, and hope.
Q: “How will this help my sex life? I just want some sex tips!”
A: OK, let’s say you learn some amazing, awesome sex tips. However, when you go to try it out, you still can’t relax into it. You still need to cross your own emotional bridge and learn how to open up, be vulnerable, and really trust the other person. That’s an emotional journey. Improving our sex lives and orgasms is more than just some quick sex tips. It’s about trust, communication, feeling powerful and emboldened, being vulnerable and letting go. And that is a spiritual path. That has nothing to do with quick, “easy,” external fixes.
