The Pleasure Chest, boutique de adultos en Los Ángeles y Fun Factory, el fabricante de juguetes alemanes, han unido esfuerzos para presentar “¡Sexo, Lo Básico!” un taller de educación sexual para adultos en español, el cual se impartirá el 5 de diciembre en su local de West Hollywood.

El director de Desarrollo de Negocios, Memo Vega comenta: “!Estamos emocionados de formar parte de esta iniciativa ya que Estados Unidos es el cuarto país de habla hispana en todo el mundo! Esta es una gran oportunidad para llegar a un segmento importante y poco atendido de la comunidad en Los Ángeles. Además suele ser un grupo demográfico tímido al hablar sobre sexo. Al tener estos talleres en español y en un ambiente divertido y positivo como The Pleasure Chest, podemos promover mejores relaciones y comunicación, fomentando así una actitud saludable hacia el sexo.”

El taller “¡Sexo, Lo Básico!” cubrirá el uso de juguetes para adultos y como integrarlos para aumentar la intimidad sexual. Otros temas que también se cubrirán será condones, lubricantes, practicas de sexo seguro y consejos para juego entre pareja o individual. El taller se llevara acabo el miércoles 5 de diciembre de 8 pm a 10 pm. La entrada es gratuita.
