How to be okay being a slut.

7:00 PM19:00

How to be okay being a slut.

Ever been called a slut because you like to have sex, a lot, with different people? Or worse, have you ever felt like a slut and shameful about it? Or have you simply wondered what it would be like to be more promiscuous? If you answered yes, then join us for a conversation about what it means to live a life of sluttery while also maintaining your sense of self-worth and dignity.

This conversation is for those who engage in or are curious about living a promiscuous lifestyle free from shame and guilt. We will discuss how one can live an ethically balanced and happy life while also being what society calls "slutty." We will address issues of social stigma around hookups and one night stands, different ways of mitigating risk associated with promiscuity, and explore fun fantasies about what it's like to be a slut and reclaim the term as a positive affirmation of our enjoyment of sex rather then simply a pejorative label for promiscuous people. RSVP to this conversation HERE

This Conversation Series will be facilitated by Munirah Alam, LPC, CACII, counselor with the Denver Colorado AIDS Project, on August 18. Join us and RSVP if you plan to attend.

Sexploration: A Three-Session Conversation

SEXPLORATION: A THREE-SESSION CONVERSATION

Wednesdays- June 10th, 17th, and 24th 2015 
7PM -9PM at Hooked on Colfax Coffee and Booze (Colfax at Steele) 
 

Back by popular demand, and bigger and more intimate than before! In this three part conversation series, this closed group will explore the idea of “sexploration.” How might we explore sex and sexual expression in a way that promotes personal growth? Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves such as self-confidence, fears, or shyness that prevent us from enjoying our next level of sexual enjoyment.

As sexual beings, what might it mean to embrace our unique sexual identities and curiosities? Are there things you’ve always wanted to try but have never done? Together we’ll learn about “sexploration” and how it might be used to step more fully into who you are.

 The Details:

  • This will be a 3 part series- attendance to all three will be required.
  • Dates are Wednesdays, June 10th,17th, and 24th from 7PM-9 PM at Hooked on Colfax
  • This is a closed conversation, meaning confidentiality and trust will be built by not having new participants each week. It will be the same facilitators and participants each week.

This conversation series will be facilitated by Shannon Sprung, MA, LPC  and Anna Gibson, Doctoral Trainee. This will be a closed group, meaning attendance will be required at all three meetings.  RSVP to this conversation HERE

Sexploration Part 2: Sexpression

Sexploration Part 2: Sexpression  

As a part two to last month’s conversation series, this month we will look at the idea of “Sexpression.” What is sexual expression? How do you know when you are exercising your sexual expression in a way that is fulfilling or freeing for you? Much like how we express ourselves with more than just our voices, sexual expression is composed of much more than simply the act of having sex. What aspects of sexual expression have you never thought of and might want to consider? What is a form of sexual expression that has made you move forward in your growth as a sexual being? Together we’ll learn about “sexpression” and what it might mean for your path of sexploration.  
 
This conversation series will be facilitated by Muni Alam, MA, LPC and Anna Gibson, Psy.D candidate, counselors with the Denver Colorado AIDS Project. Join us and RSVP by signing up here.  Space is limited.  Please forward this email to others who may be interested in attending this conversation.

This conversation is open to any and all gay and bisexual men, and community members having a sincere, positive, personal interest in the discussion topic, and who agree to keep confidential what is discussed at the conversation. The intention of this conversation and all conversations is to bring awareness without judgment to the topics discussed, with the outcomes being increased awareness, enrichment, and connection.

Having the Other Sex Conversation:
The meaning of Getting It On


We may talk about STDs and condoms, but what about the other sex conversation?  Do we talk about what sex means to us? What is the kind of meaning you give to sex?  What is it going to mean to you to have sex?  Does sex create expectation?

Can we get on the same page sexually?
 
This conversation is inspired by Dr. Steve Bearman’s video about having the other sex conversation
