The Anatomy of Pleasure: What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class with ScrewSmart

ATTENTION: DUE TO LACK OF ENROLLMENT & INCLEMENT WEATHER, THIS EVENING’S CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELED.

*With a special focus on MASTURBATION in honor of May being National Masturbation Month!

The human body is an amazing tangle of nerves and erogenous zones there for the taking, yet our delicious ability to give and receive pleasure is usually the first thing skipped over in health class.  But not for long!  Come explore the inner and outer workings of the body’s pleasure centers and learn how to maximize your enjoyment.  Get the most out of your body’s tingly bits!

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!

There will be activities, take home exercises, and plenty of Q&A time. You’ll learn useful strategies to make the most of your sex life and relationship. Let this be your jumping off point in your adventures in hot monogamy! This class is designed for couples of every gender and orientation.
