Body Beautiful: Sexual Power for Different Bodies

Presenter: Sarah Sloane

Almost nobody has a model’s body, yet sometimes, we feel shame or guilt when our bodies don’t look, act, or feel like the folks we see in the media (not to mention porn!). Instead of focusing on how our bodies aren’t like theirs (whether because of size, age, race, mobility, or strength), let’s talk about how to have the best sex of our lives in the bodies that we live (and love!) in. We’ll cover how we look at our bodies, explore our strengths, and come up with ways to make sex (solo or partnered) even sexier, more pleasurable, and more authentic!
