Become a Sexual Communication Superhero! with Kate McCombs
You could know all the advanced sexual techniques in the world, but without good communication, those techniques are like a computer without a battery — sophisticated, but not practical. Humans vary in what they enjoy sexually, and the only way we can truly know what someone enjoys is by communicating openly with them.

For many people, talking about sex at all can be difficult – especially with the people with whom they’re having it. Learning to talk & listen about sexuality are key adult skills, but there are few opportunities for people to learn how to do them well.

In this workshop, Kate will show you how to develop your sexual communication superpowers so you have the tools to ask for what you want and learn what delights your partner(s).

Ultimately, her work is about helping people feel more comfortable talking about sex and feelings.

To that end, she writes articles and facilitates workshops on how to build amazing relationships. You can find out more about Kate at KateMcCombs.com

Sex After 50 - Yes, Yes, Yes with Walker Thornton
Forget the hype, forget the naysayers—sex for older adults can be just as good, if not better, than when you were in your 20s and 30s. It’s a myth that older adults don’t have sex. Research shows older adults have active sex lives, feel a great sense of well-being, and engage in a wide range of sexual behavior.

Living a sexually fulfilling life is as simple as expanding your definition of sex and being willing to engage in conversations with your sexual partners about what you want in sexual relationships. The presentation will cover how to increase or sustain sexual desire as you age, accommodations for dealing with age-related challenges and sexy tips to spice up your sex life.

Tantra for Beginners with Reid Mihalko
Do you wish there was more than just the hump, grunt, and grind of conventional sex? You’ve probably heard of Tantra, but think that kind of stuff is only for Sting, yoga instructors or porn stars. Perhaps you’ve read a book on the Kama Sutra or talked to someone about sacred sexuality, but it was too “woo-woo” and new age-y for your sensibilities. What if we told you mind blowing, ecstatic sex was not only possible, but learnable and didn’t have to set off your “new age” alarms? Join sex and relationship educator Reid Mihalko for a fun, light-hearted romp into the world of sacred sexuality. Explore enhanced lovemaking techniques, communication skills for deepening intimacy, and breathing techniques to increase your arousal and sexual stamina.

Dominance & Submission: Hot Fiction, Hotter Facts with Mollena Williams

  • Physical, Mental, and Emotional Safety

Casual sex gets a bad rap. It is often accused of being harmful for your physical, mental, and relational health.

The Myth of Sexual Dysfunctions with Dr. Chris Donaghue
Sexual dysfunctions don’t exist. These diagnoses are attempts to pathologize diversity and standardize sexual functioning. Most issues are not about dysfunction and pathology but instead misunderstandings about sex and anatomy. This workshop will explore how there is no “normal;” normal is not the goal. And how culture, psychology, and media do their best to hold this “normal” as the template for healthy sexual functioning. The goal is for individuals to learn to accept operating differently sexually, with variations and issues to be expected. Most sexual dysfunctions are not due to disorder or the failure of some part of the body but are failures to perform sex in a way that is socially acceptable or desirable.
Dr. Chris Donaghue is a doctor of Clinical Sexology and Human Sexuality, trained in Clinical Psychology. He is a licensed clinical therapist and a certified sex therapist, specializing in individual and couples sex and marital therapy, as well as sexual compulsivity, sexual anorexia, sexual dysfunctions, and non-traditional sexuality, identities, and relationships. He also runs healthy sexuality therapy groups.

Dr. Donaghue is a member of the American Association of Sex Counselors, Educators, and Therapists (AASECT) and the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS). Chris is one of only 400 individuals who completed the extra training to receive his CST Credentials.

Dr. Donaghue is nationally recognized as a sex and relationship expert, appearing on WE’s “Sex Box,” Logo TV’s “Bad Sex,” and Dr. Drew’s “Lifechangers.” He has been featured in Newsweek, CNN, OWN, and National Geographic. His first book, “Sex Outside the Lines: Authentic Sexuality in a Sexually Dysfunctional Culture” is available now.
