Sexuality Salon Workshop Offerings
Each workshop is designed to delve deep into a specific topic about healthy human sexuality for opportunities to learn, grow, and share about oneself. At workshops there will be a varied approach depending on the needs of the group. There could be a combination of these elements: group discussion, personal reflection, activities (group, partnered, or personal), media, worksheets, gentle body movement. Please connect with Tanille if you have any further questions or inspirations!

Get cozy with nourishing yourself! In this workshop we explore how pleasure, shame, comfort, history, society, habits, porn, and challenge come into our self pleasure rituals. Then we imagined on how we could expand ourselves further into pleasure.
