Lunch and Learn
Upcoming dates:

• Toys for Santa, Dec 15th 12pm Central (Virtual).

A sexuality education ‘lunch and learn’ timed for the holiday, we will discuss erotic toys for men and/or people with a penis – options, purpose/function, and resources for additional information and purchasing. The use of adult toys by penis-havers is culturally taboo – we will examine and do our part to deconstruct this cultural norm.  The interrogating of cultural story (ie nonsense) is the overarching purpose of my/our sexuality education offerings.
If you have a penis, are intimate with  someone that has one, and/or enjoy learning about bodies in general, this workshop is for you.
Email ignitewellbeing.naperville@gmail.com to register. Size is limited and pre-registration is required 48hrs minimum in advance of the event (registration closes 2 days prior to the event). Event is $10/household, with sliding scale options (venmo @ignitewellbeing).
