  • Private Venue Near Jack London Square Oakland, CA, 94607 United States (map)

Get tickets here

Most of us are not taught how to connect with our own bodies and discover our capacity for pleasure, which is essential for having nourishing sexual experiences with ourselves and with others. But you don’t have to struggle alone. Join sex educator duo, Dr. Alison Ash and Euphemia Russell as we discover how to cultivate your pleasure. Discover how empowering it can be to understand your body and cultivate your desire and pleasure on your own! In this workshop, you will:

  • Practice embodiment skills so you can get out of your head and into your body, where pleasure lives

  • Explore your wants, needs, desires, boundaries and what turns you on

  • Learn how to romance yourself and use senses and sensations to expand your pleasure

  • Discover how to navigate the three biggest killers of desire: shame, pressure, and stress

  • Understand what it means to create safety in the body so you can surrender into pleasure

Cultivating Your Pleasure: Level 1 is the offering we both wish we’d experienced long ago, and is full of supported exploration, science based tools and techniques, and take-home exercises that will support you in translating your self focused skills into Maximizing Pleasure Together: Level 2.

Euphemia is a trained and endorsed Australian Pleasure Educator who currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. They bring science, body awareness, self regulation, and communication tools together to teach people to explore and enjoy their bodies. Euphemia’s work is admired and followed for their innate ability to teach in a supported, pleasurable, and accessible way. Their approach and facilitation style is practical, disarmingly dorky, and thoughtful.
