Upcoming Workshop Topics

​​​​​​​​​​

2 May 2017 - Age and Sexuality


"No one under [...]"   "No one over [...]"


Whether unspoken or expressed, a lot of gay men have an age range for men that they would consider engaging with sexually or romantically.  The boundaries of this age range are sometimes flexible, but online apps facilitate cut-off points, so that men outside the age range just simply stop existing for them online.


Whether one is looking for a daddy, or for youth or only for something in the middle, the purpose of this workshop is to explore what makes us focus on sexual or romantic partners of a certain age, what do we hope it will say about us if we engage with this age group, and what stops us from engaging with gay men from age groups that we don't usually go for.


 

16 May 2017 - 'Non-sober' Sex


​Whether it's sex after a couple of drinks, a spliff, other drugs or chemsex, 'non-sober sex' can sometimes be a lot of fun, and often satisfies our transgressive urges and our fantasies to be sexual in an uninhibited way.


But things get problematic when we can only be sexual, or engage with others sexually, by being drunk or high.


The purpose of this workshop is to explore how we each relate to alcohol or drugs in our sexual lives, and what is uncomfortable about the sexual encounter that sometimes makes us prefer not being fully present.
