This course will be an exploration of pleasure as a physical, emotional, sexual, socio-cultural, spiritual and political framework. It will delve into pleasure skills that our culture has denied us access to or that we may not have had the opportunity to explore for ourselves. We will deconstruct various mythos and false binaries surrounding sexual pleasure (ie: pleasure / pain and giving / receiving), explore factors both that create barriers to pleasure and that enhance pleasure, and discover various ways in which pleasure can be a catalyst to individual, interpersonal and collective healing.
This course will not be covering physiological pleasure and response, nor will it delve very deeply into how orgasm works. Instead, we will discuss and unpack the characteristics of pleasure and work to develop the skills for creating a definition of pleasure for ourselves and for helping our clients/students/etc. to do the same.
This course is meant to be inclusive and so topics will be discussed using gender-inclusive language and collective accessibility will be addressed and discussed throughout.
