The Erotic Explorations for Men workshop offers you the opportunity to gain new erotic knowledge and awareness as you practice and explore techniques for full-body pleasure, intimacy and empowerment.
Join other friendly, adventurous gay and bisexual men for a fresh, somatic, up-to-date, and hands on approach to sex education, conscious eroticism, body awareness and pleasure.
The workshop involves nudity and sharing full body and erotic touch with other men.
Somatic learning sessions include erotic and body-based practices that weave together your heart and genitals while offering ways to become more emotionally connected to yourself and your partners.
“A truly remarkable experience! This was my first time as any type of workshop like this and I was somewhat anxious at the beginning. I felt welcome and very comfortable. I look forward to future sessions. THANK YOU MARK!”
The atmosphere is one of clear communication, heartfelt listening, with supportive guidelines that promote creativity and safe, sane and consensual behavior.
As you acquire new knowledge and practice new skills, the session may sometimes feel challenging and sometimes blissful.
Sessions will include a variety of pleasurable, intimate and transformative practices that individuals, couples, and groups can enjoy when sexually aroused and when not. Such practices (often referred to as orgasmic yoga) include breathing, hypnotic trance, movement, mindful touch, sensate focus, meditation, savoring, sound, body awareness, working with intention and energy medicine. Hygienic practices are followed for touch and bodywork.
When practiced regularly over time, these practices can change your life.
Since each month’s session features a slightly different theme and focus some sessions will emphasize certain practices more than others.
Within a structured format, part or most of the session will include rotations of randomly assigned pairs or triads for practice, pleasure and fun learning. Different parts of the session will give you varying amounts of choice in structuring your own experience.
Participants will interact with the group in respectful, accepting, playful ways that emphasizes heartfelt communication.

On the rare occasion there is a low turnout, you’ll receive more indepth personal attention and guidance from the facilitator.
Participants are expected to equally take part in the giving and receiving of all activities as this offers you the most profound learning.
Participants are expected to offer nonjudgmental acceptance and to share respectful full body touch with all the other participants. .
