THIS CLASS WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR JANUARY!
If you’ve read erotica—or even a sexy scene in a novel—you know the charge that can come from the written word. But how do you find the inspiration for erotic writing—and what can you do to set it apart from everything else that’s already out there? You’ll learn how to write orgasms and pen dirty talk while avoiding common pitfalls. Whether you want a naughty story to share with your partner, or you have goals of publication, this class will jump-start your juices, creative and otherwise.
Olivia Glass is the author of Five Stages of Grief (Fleshbot Fiction, 2013). Her work has also appeared in Filament Magazine, Bend Over Magazine, The Paris Review Daily, and Best Women’s Erotica 2012, from Cleis Press.

Thousands of people perform massage with and without training in a variety of settings. The BDSM scene is one place where massage can be taken to a variety of levels beyond the vanilla world’s. If you’re looking for a class that will describe different types of massage, this class is not for you. The objectives of this class are to educate you about how to perform effective massage without experiencing too much stress or fatigue and how to give the greatest benefit to the lucky recipient of your massage. Body mechanics; proper use of hands, elbows, and forearms; and important focus areas to reap the greatest benefits from massage will be discussed. When you leave this class, you will be able to give longer and more frequent massages that have people begging for more, and who doesn’t like begging?
Dr. Lynk is a creatively entertaining sadist with fetishes for knives, the workings of the human body, maintaining constant motion when teaching a class, and being the community human repairman. His classes are derived from his work and training as a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). You can expect his classes to include a twist of pain (ok, maybe a little more than a twist), a dash of random facts, and a ton of information. Do not be alarmed if he takes off his shirt for no apparent reason or uses a variety of audience members and random objects as props during class. This is just how he operates. Dr. Lynk hopes that you will not only be entertained by his presentations and antics but will also come away with a great deal of knowledge. Of course, he would have never found the scene or started presenting without the influence of his incredible life partner, Ever.

ScrewSmart is a sex education collaborative formed to promote both individual and community sexual heath and satisfaction. Based in Philadelphia, it was founded in 2009 by three sex positive queer women who met while working towards human sexuality education masters. They came together with the goal of providing information and resources to a diverse adult audience. ScrewSmart aims to facilitate a collective community dialogue that supports sexual exploration and health. They do this by providing educational workshops, hosting sex positive community events, and advocating freedom of expression for sexual minorities. ScrewSmart works to build spaces where they can share our love for each other as friends and professionals while inspiring others to be engaged and informed sexual adventurers!
