Hey Los Angeles! We have a special addition to our October workshop schedule. This coming Sunday, the inimitable Megan Andelloux will be teaching her class on male pleasure, Gentlemen, Start Your Engines.

Want to increase your horsepower? Tired of the everyday romp in the bedroom (either solo or with a friend)? Curious about toys for boys? Whether you are just starting out in the world of pleasing a man in bed or have had years of experience, there are always a few new tricks that can be learned. Discover the ins and outs of the male sexual anatomy and response, learn how to practice safer sex in a sexy fashion, experiment with genital massage techniques (in a socially appropriate manner), get the rundown on deep-throating and much, much more!

Gentlemen, Start Your Engines will be held at our Los Angeles store on Sunday, October 20th, 4-6pm. As always, this workshop is free, and we recommend arriving a little early to secure your spot.

Poly-Curious 101 with Reid Mihalko and Allison Moon
Tuesday, October 15th @ 8-10pm FREE!

Are you curious about polyamory but don’t know where to start? Reid Mihalko and Allison Moon will take you through the different ways you can make non-monogamous relationship work. You’ll learn how to negotiate your boundaries, navigate common poly pitfalls, and embrace jealousy as an asset. Show up with questions and leave with confidence!

Blowjobs & Beyond with Reid Mihalko
Wednesday, October 16th @ 8-10pm FREE!

Want to have him squirming in his seat? Reid Mihalko will show you how to use your mouth, hands, and more to give mind-blowing blowjobs. He’ll cover male anatomy, tips and tricks, how to conquer your gag reflex, his signature “slow jerk” technique, plus other sexy secrets that are sure to have your partner begging for more.

MichaelsJohnsonTantraPMIntroduction to Tantra with Patricia Johnson and Mark Michaels
Wednesday, October 23rd @ 8-10pm FREE!

Tantra uses sexual energy for consciousness expansion. In other words you can think whatever thoughts, use whatever implements, and be with whomever you wish, as long as that gets you into a highly charged erotic state. This is where the magic can begin to happen. Join Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, authors of “Great Sex Made Simple,” for an honest discussion in which they will dispel some of the popular myths surrounding this ancient tradition. You will learn that elements of Tantric philosophy and practice can be easily applied to our modern lives in ways that do more than simply improve our sexual experiences. This class is for all relationship styles, configurations and gender identities. Singles are welcome.
