Creating Your Pleasure Toolbox: A Sexual Health & Wellness Writing Session
June 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
With PRIDE month at hand, allgo is excited to bring you some opportunities to explore and be playful as we celebrate our vibrant queer selves and community. In this workshop participants will create a pleasure tool box using expressive writing to communicate your desires and identify what gives you pleasure. What are you looking for in a partner? What are your ideal sexual encounters? Using short writing exercises you will discover new ways to nurture and sustain your sexual health and wellness and uncover who you are and what you want in this moment now.
