Embodied Talks | 29 June | Sex-Positive Sex-Ed

n this first-ever workshop, we invite every person with an interest in sex and their health to come along to have their brains filled with something valuable.

Embodiment Rope Space is a welcoming and safe(r) space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community and allies. We practice rope communally and host occasional workshops for upskilling the community. Rope is never safe, there are only ways to do it more safely.

About the Workshop
Adult sex education is essential for promoting sexual health, enhancing relationships, and empowering personal choices by providing accurate, evidence-based information. It helps correct misinformation, supports diverse sexualities, and improves mental health by addressing issues like consent, sexual dysfunction, and body image concerns. Additionally, it plays a crucial role in reducing sexual violence and adapting to life changes such as pregnancy and aging. By encouraging open dialogue, adult sex education reduces stigma and enables individuals to make informed decisions about their sexual well-being.

For Who?
This workshop is aimed at any person, regardless of gender, sexuality or relationship orientation, who would like to know more about their own or their partner’s bodies within a sex-positive framework.

What to Expect
This will be an AMA (ask me anything) formatted workshop focussed on discussion and sharing of information!

Our starting discussion will be aimed at getting to grips with applied human anatomy before expanding into how we can use this knowledge to increase fun and pleasure with ourselves or others. We will also begin to delve into the concept of sexual safety – that is ensuring we are safe from harm, and infections as well as understanding fertility. Understanding our own bodies and how to protect them is the platform from which all the fun can take place!

The atmosphere will be one of non-judgemental learning and facilitation of discussion where we can all learn safely. There will be no beating around the bush here! Come armed with any burning questions (or questions about things you may have caught at the ‘burn.)

Some topics to be covered:

  • Family planning
  • STI testing
  • Period sex
  • Anal sex
  • Pap smears
  • Lube
  • Vaccines, and more.

Attendees are encouraged to submit anonymous questions to be discussed on the evening when purchasing their tickets. This is a required field on the ticket form, but if you would prefer to bring your questions in person, simply fill in N/A when purchasing your ticket.
