Bodysex is a process designed to help women understand their bodies and sexuality better. The rituals practiced in Bodysex Workshops are designed to support women as they connect to their bodies, heal shame, and move fully into pleasure. To embrace the full capacity of pleasure, women need to understand basic sexual anatomy, find the parts that bring us to orgasm, and claim our bodies for our own pleasure.

 

Women have the most sophisticated sex organ on the planet, capable of endless pleasure. The clitoris is evergreen. It never ages and women can have orgasms until the end of life. It’s never too late to begin.

Bodysex rituals are learned in an environment of compassion and support. All women in a Bodysex circle are equal. Participants share their own experiences first person. The workshop facilitator serves the group by holding the space and introducing the rituals. Every woman heals herself through the Bodysex rituals, sharing in the circle, and self-pleasure. The intimacy that is inherent in Bodysex often creates a feeling of sisterhood among those who have shared this space together. Pleasure exists for every woman and those with whom she chooses to share it.

FAQ

Why participate in a Bodysex Workshop?

Many women/vulva-owners have been raised to feel shameful about their genitals and sexual desires. Our physical self-worth and pleasure are controlled by social norms that deny our birthright to feeling good about our bodies, having satisfying orgasms, and owning our sexuality. Bodysex is designed to heal shame, enhance self-esteem, and enrich

our orgasms.

Why are workshops done in the nude?

A negative body image is very common among women in our society. We don’t see a range of real body types in television, movies and media. Nudity in the Bodysex circle allows us to see a range of normal bodies. When we are able to spend time in our bodies without clothing, we literally become more comfortable in our own skin. Your registration and attendance at a Bodysex Workshop indicates that you consent to participate in the nude.

Who may attend Bodysex Workshops?

Adult women/vulva-havers of any age or sexual orientation are welcome. As long as you have a vulva/vagina, Bodysex is for you.


Can I attend if I’m pregnant? Of course!
What about if I’m post-menopausal? Absolutely!

What if I have my period?

No problem. You can use a tampon, menstrual cup, or a piece of natural sea sponge during Genital Show & Tell and Erotic Recess. Some women even choose to free bleed onto a towel. Bleeding is a natural part of being a woman and there is no shame in it.

What if I have a yeast, bladder, or other infection?

No problem. You are welcome to participate. Just use some over-the-counter or other treatment before attending. Every participant has their own supplies and equipment so you will not be sharing.

What if I can't orgasm?

If you orgasm, great. If you don't, that's ok too. Orgasm is NOT the goal. We're here to heal body shame, overcome sexual guilt and experience true sisterhood. There's no agenda and no expectations.

What should I bring?

Everything that you need for the workshop, including water and snacks, will be provided. However, feel free to bring anything special that you might want, such as a preferred snack food or a favorite sex toy. If you have your own Magic Wand and Betty’s Barbell, feel free to bring them as well.

Can I keep the Magic Wand and Betty’s Barbell?

Can I bring my own Betty’s Barbell and wand?

Yes. If you've already purchased Betty’s Barbell and the Magic Wand, you can bring them with you to the workshop.

Can I bring something to eat?
