Eroticizing Consent / Andrea Zanin

What do you want? Do you believe you deserve to get it? Do you know how to tell someone what you want, and what you don’t, and why, and how? What are your boundaries, and where do they come from? If you don’t know them, how do you go about figuring them out? And most of all, how do you make this process sweet and sexy rather than scary and frustrating? We’ll start with these questions and take it from there! Come join us for an interactive workshop where you’ll learn tons of tips and tricks on how to enjoy the sometimes intimidating business of communication in our intimate and sexual relationships. Expect plenty of discussion, handy diagrams, five-step processes and introspective exercises. A thought-provoking experience is guaranteed!

Andrea Zanin, a.k.a. Sex Geek, pretty much writes and talks about sex all the time unless she’s eating, sleeping or having it. She lives in Toronto and is an organizer, educator and writer within the queer, polyamory and BDSM/leather communities, as well as being an active trans ally. She frequently speaks about alternative sexuality for universities, colleges, sex shops, community groups and conferences in Canada, the States and internationally.
