About the event
Sex can be awkward. Relationships are challenging. Communication gets confusing. We’re here to help...
Welcome to the fundamentals of sex: the sex ed you wish you’d had! This time there’s no awkward biology teacher, and we actually get to talk about what matters: what turns us on and off, our fantasies, our fears.
Despite our differences, let’s come together to learn that all of us are “normal”.
Join us for a our workshop where we unlearn all the sex-negative scripts we've grown up with and rebuild a healthy, fun and judgement free relationship with sex!
Over the course of the weekend you'll learn how to become your very own sexual expert:
- Be more confident in your own body and sexuality
- Discover your turn on's and off's
- How to give and receive sexual pleasure
- Identify your unique relationship style and how to communicate that your current or potential partner(s)
- Learn holistic techniques to access your sexuality and eroticism
- Grow your communication, connection and boundary skills
- Explore new orgasm techniques
- Expand your sexuality, including: sex toys, fantasies, porn, kinks and fetishes
- Empowerment to make better, more well-informed decisions about your body and relationships (yass!)
This course is open to all ages, genders, sexualities, bodies and humans!
Judgement and harrasment of any kind will not be tolerated.
Meet our Sexperts:
Alejandra Welsh Peña (The Founder - she/her)
Alejandra is a Sex Educator (ISEE, ACET) with a background in Psychology. She believes that sexual wellness and pleasure is a basic human right and her life's mission is to create a more empowered and shame-free world where everyone can be their own sexual expert!
Growing up internationally from South East Asia to the Middle East, South America to Europe, Alejandra identifies as a Third Culture Kid (TCK). In short, this means she was brought up on the values and culture of her parents whilst also embracing the wildly different cultures of the countries she lived in; thus creating her very own third culture.
She was brought up around many different cultures, languages, traditions, races and classes. Nothing has been more eye-opening and enriching than truly being a nomad of the world.
However one global common denominator was always been the topic of sex. Sex was a taboo and pleasure was never part of the conversation. Slut shaming went unnoticed and 'boys shouldn't cry' was the norm. Unfortunately, this still seems to be the case today, no matter where in the world you were brought up.
Feeling underwhelmed & frustrated with the lack of empowering and inclusive sex education, Alejandra decided to quit her job in 2019 and has been working to provide the world with comprehensive and holistic sex education which is culturally relevant and scientifically backed. Her mission is to immerse you in a world of sex and body-positive art, music, literature and culture so that sex no longer has to be taboo.
MJ Sohal (Word Domme - Pronouns are a work in progress)
MJ is an ex primary school teacher who left teaching to explore education as a vehicle for wider social change. She is a writer who is currently training with the Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology. Passionate about many things, including mental health, intersectional feminisim and veganism, pleasure-centred sex and kink education is top of her list. She is a self-confessed cat lady (zero shame), has type 1 diabetes, and classifies her current approach to relationships as somewhere between solo poly and relationship anarchy. She is currently on a gender identity journey, exploring how she/ they pronouns feel.
Nadja Keulen (The Creative One - she/they)
Nadja is a recent design graduate specialising in ‘design & de-stigmatisation’. She wrote her thesis on the evolution of the female sex toy industry and sits at the intersection between queer, fem and sex tech. She is passionate about ‘design for change’ especially in these areas. Growing up with no sex education as well as having to navigate through her own gender and sexuality, really pushed her passion in this field. Now, she owns way too many (yet never enough!) vulva books and sexual decorations. Her work continuously seeks to smash taboos, educate and normalise talk around sex
