Kink 101
Have you heard about kink or BDSM? Are you interested in learning the basics? This workshop helps to introduce youth (my definitions is 14-29) to BDSM + Kink in a workshop  in a safe, non judgemental environment. While this is directed towards a younger-ish audience, if you are older and would like to request this, this is also friendly to older audiences as well!

Not Your High School’s Sex Ed
Teacher! What’s consent?

That’s a question that probably wanted to be ask or never was asked. Period. This presentation, which is usually taught in a classroom setting, even after class hours will give people who HATED their high school’s sex education a chance to relearn again. On top of that, unlike most sexual education programs in the United States, it’s…LGBTQ FRIENDLY! Currently working on making it also disability friendly.

First presented at SUNY-Fredonia, it’s going to make another appearance at the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. If your college/college aged group is interested, please let me know.

Count Me In : Ableism in QTPOC.LGBTQ+ Spaces
In this workshop, I will use my personal experiences as well the art of dialogue to have an open discussion about ableism and to allow folks to unpack normalized, but not okay behaviors they have perpetuated in safer spaces.

Some of the terms that will be discussed will be : ableism, disability, and microaggressions. The experiences of LGBTQ+ people of color will be prioratized, but white queer and trans folks as well as allies to the LGBTQ+ community can come as well. Usually takes around 2 hours to complete. Can be less.

Because of it’s origin, sometimes it will say QTPOC. However, LGBTQ+ is now the default, unless the audience in question will be mostly QTPoC.

When Open Love isn’t Open Enough
What is polyamory or non-monogamy? What does that mean if you’re not only new to this, but also not…white? In this workshop, folks will learn basic definitions of those terms, discuss the effects of the lack of QTPoC visibility in such spaces, & develop support systems for QTPoC in these spaces.

Whips and Chains Excite Me Too : Kink and Disability
As folks may know, I’m disabled. On top of that, I’m also a sex educator who is kinky. This presentation, which will make it’s debut at the Disability Intersectionality Summit next month will be talking about the intersections of that. On top of that, I’ll also use my experience as a Black, queer and nonbinary kinkster to get down to business and further discuss my intersections with my disability and how exclusive kink can be to folks like me.

Kink and Disability (the Interactive workshop version of the previous presentation)

Workshops/Presentations Currently in Progress of Creation!

From Push It to How Many Licks : Black Feminine Sexuality from late 80s to Early 2000s
This presentation (geared towards Black people, but can be for anyone) is going to explore some artists who came out to the hip hop & dancehall scene back when it was a “man’s world” to be raunchy. That being said, these studies are presumbaly cis women, but when I’m discussing recent artists as well.

What About the Walker : Hooking Up While Disabled
Tinder. Okcupid. Plenty of Fish.

What do they have in common? Folks use them for relationships, but also for hook ups. The biggest shocker is that disabled people are also on these apps! Not only that but some of them  want to get laid. This workshop talks about hook up etiquette when disabled & how to address ableism at spots where hooks up have the potential to happen.  This also will demystify the myth of the “sexless, sex free, sex repulsed cripple” in an environment where it will be safe to unpack.

Mental Health & Sexuality Part 1: Sexual & Mental Health 101
Sexuality can be a taboo topic. So is discussing mental health disparities.

What we need to talk about : how both go hand in hand. In the “Mental health and Sexuality” series, a variety of topics will be discussed ranging from unpacking trauma to discussing the importance of having mental health being discussed as an intersectional issue.

Sexual & Mental Health 101 is a workshop that introduces participants to terminology that providers (and even loved ones) might use to describe oneself. In turn, this workshop will also discuss the importance of linking sexuality with mental health and discuss possible solutions in which sexuality and mental health can be unified together without leaving anyone in the dark. Despite this being titled Part 1, this series can be done in different orders.

Mental Health & Sexuality  Part 2 : Navigating Trauma
Sexuality can be a taboo topic. So is discussing mental health disparities.

What we need to talk about : how both go hand in hand. In the “Mental health and Sexuality” series, a variety of topics will be discussed ranging from unpacking trauma to discussing the importance of having mental health being discussed as an intersectional issue.

Navigating Trauma is a workshop that works on providing a safe space of discussing what sexuality is, how aspects of sexuality can change after dealing with a variety forms of trauma, and what it means to reclaim and understand that mental health can have a different effect on different people.
