Designer Relationships: A New Paradigm

Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, co-authors of Designer Relationships, say we’re in the middle of a second sexual revolution. Marriage equality is the law of the land. Transgender issues are out of the closet. The next frontier, they believe, is the very nature of the contemporary relationship itself—specifically, the “monogamy mandate” is being challenged.In their new book, Michaels and Johnson debunk some widely accepted relationship myths and offer a new paradigm that emphasizes mutuality, a collaborative mindset, empathy, and transparency. Monogamy, they insist, is just one of many valid relationship structures. By thinking outside the monogamous-nonmonogamous box we free ourselves to create partnerships based on our own circumstances, sexualities, understandings and agreements.

Designer relationships can encompass:
– people who bond emotionally but not sexually
– people who agree to be non-exclusive
– happily single people who have occasional lovers or friends with benefits
– multiple partner configurations where long-term bonds exist among all or some
– partnerships in which people are kinky and that make room to explore kink
– couples who consciously choose to be monogamous

It’s this last point that captures the central message of Designer Relationships and showcases the book’s relevance to almost everyone. When we courageously choose the way of loving that’s right for us, rather than defaulting to society’s expectations, we’re happier, healthier, and equipped to create intimacy with the partner or partners who enrich our lives, challenge us, and help us grow.

Demystifying – and Then REmystifying – the Vagina

Hi. My name is Tony, and I have a penis. That means that I know less about vaginas than half of the world’s population. That being said, I have learned one or two things in my… travels that I think are important/cool/esoteric enough to share. This is NOT a “Pussy 101” class. I’ll cover the basics briefly, but that sort of information is very easy to obtain elsewhere, ideally from someone born with a vagina. This class is all about creative ways one can stimulate the Holiest of Holes, typically resulting in really, really good orgasms. Here’s the breakdown:

PART 1: WHAT EVERYONE DAMN WELL NEEDS TO KNOW BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TO, AROUND, OR NEAR A VAGINA.

If you wanna get into her, you gotta get her into you

PART 2: FISTING, BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU JUST WANT TO PRETEND SHE’S A VENTRILOQUIST DUMMY.

You wanna put what, where?!

PART 3: AIN’T NOTHIN BUT A G-SPOT THING.

How the hell does she stay hydrated? I’m glad I brought an umbrella.

PART 4: LOOK MOM, NO HANDS!

Dude, is your girl having a seizure over there? Nah, I just told her to cum. She’s pretty obedient. That’s right. I will cover some “arousal 101” stuff that is always useful and often neglected, then dive straight into the basics of fisting, and then demonstrate what the g-spot is and how to stimulate it. I wasn’t joking (much) about the umbrella. This is the stuff that causes some women to squirt a high pressure jet of love all over the place. Finally, we will get a little arcane and I’ll demonstrate my method for training a woman to cum on command. It’s part luck, part magic, part hypnosis, part pavlovian conditioning, and all awesome.

Liberator’s Black Label Series is a great way to create your very own intensely erotic scenes. Our products are very soft for those new to kink or experienced to be able to get rough together safely.

Intro to Play Parties

My name is Marla and I’m a local sexuality educator and co-founder of the Sex Down South Conference. The Sexual Liberation Collective is an intentional collaboration of folks who are passionate about sexual liberation and healing for all people. We see sexual liberation as a human right and our bodies and desires as sacred. Believing in the possibility of healing for all people, including ourselves, we strive to be a collective that prioritizes people of color, trans* and gender non-conforming people, people of working class backgrounds, all body shapes, sizes and abilities, sex workers, and women. The SLC provides sexual liberators with support, advice, and accountability on their personal and professional projects, and provides education and healing to larger communities through facilitating workshops, skillshares, and healing circles. Since its inception in 2013, the SLC has presented at numerous conferences around the country, including Creating Change, Unity Through Diversity, and The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit.

Intro to Play Parties

Would you like to know more about consent-based, sex-positive play parties? Have you ever thought about hosting your own? Come to this 101 workshop to learn the basics of attending and hosting sex parties and leave with a practical tool kit of best practices from the Sexual Liberators’ Collective to get you started. This workshop aims to get folks trained up on how to be sexy & safe as attendees and hosts of play parties, and reduce isolation by creating more people in the South with the knowledge to gather queer and kinky folks for responsible play.
