    Let's Talk About Sex

    Saturdays, Feb 3 + 10, 2:00 - 6:00 pm

    Remember your first conversation about sex as a young person? Did it go something like, Don’t do it or you will get pregnant, Wait until marriage, or perhaps a mention of the birds and the bees?

    What if you had received a more comprehensive education about sex as you moved through adolescence?

    How would your sexual journey have unfolded had you been given the tools to explore your sexuality free of shame and with the support of your most trusted educators - your parents?

    We invite you to join Amy Baldwin and Gina Lepore for a radical approach to sex education. Become an ally for your teenagers as they learn about their sexuality. In this 2-class intensive for parents and young teens (ages 11-14), we will break through the intimidating conversations around sexual health and pleasure.

    These classes will give you the tools to work through your own fears with the intention of becoming your teen’s most trusted resource. The following three classes are for parents and teens. The material will be age-appropriate, and covered with sensitivity for varying preferences, orientations, perspectives, and levels of experience. Classes will include insightful lectures, fun exercises, and opportunity for discussion within a safe container.

    Topics include (but are not limited to):

    • How to talk to your kids about sex
    • Creating self love/self worth/self-esteem
    • Being a positive role model for healthy relationships
    • Embracing/accepting vulnerability
    • Learning to love your body
    • Eradicating shame around pleasure
    • Boundaries, negotiation, and consent
    • Safer sex practices
    • Strengthening communication skills
    • Dating and healthy relationships

    This is a special opportunity to deepen your connection with your teen while paving the way for a future of healthy and safe choices.

    Breaks with snacks included!

    Registration: $120 per parent/child (members 20% off). Sibling Rate: $30
