The Sex Lectures - November 2018

Changing The Conversation 

The Most Important Thing are the Hardest to Talk About.

In these inspiring and connecting evenings, speakers with unique and cutting edge views on sexuality, relationships and love will share their ideas in pithy 12 minute talks.

Good Sex can offer both connection and pleasure. It’s human to be fascinated by sexuality, yet with the rise in divorce, Tinder and porn, we’re wondering how the current reality could move beyond #MeToo and Cosmo to a greater understanding of the power of sexuality for connection, creativity, awareness and pleasure. How can we let love enlighten us, and sex truly enliven us? 

Come and join us to begin a new conversation. These relaxed yet thought provoking evenings will include 6 talks and time to meet and mingle, seduce and flirt.

Take A Taste

Sex School for Grown Ups presents Take A Taste as a stand-alone experiential evening in its own right and also as a taster for those who want to go deeper, to the 3 day series Relaxing into Pleasure

To book: http://www.sacredlighttantra.com/buy-tickets/tickets-relaxingintopleasure/ and hit the option Take A Taste of Relaxed Pleasure


What does pleasure mean for you and how can you recognise it? How can you relax into a pleasurable encounter or relationship and stay aware of yourself?

Trust and Feel. Trust is a key issue in relaxed pleasure. Trust in ourselves and in our partner is vital to add to our enjoyment. As is learning to notice and feel what is pleasurable for us. Join Alison for a workshop that was one of the highlights of the Manchester Tantra Festival. Expanding our experience of sensual touch, we can learn to be aware of ourselves in the presence of another. This builds courage, sensual pleasure and connection.

In a gentle and enjoyable blend of Alison’s work in Tantra, sexological body work and conscious kink you’ll come to understand the joys of initiating for yourself, understand more about your pleasure, learn about sensual, nurturing and erotic touch, learn to focus attention in your own body, be more creative and courageous, have fun meeting others in short encounters. There will be space to discuss your fears and hopes as a human who simply wants to be open about the longing to feel connection and pleasure. Understanding why, how and then what. Being a sex geek is fun and confidence building. Curiosity and courage is all you need.

Taste of Taking £10 + £0.56 PayPal Fee. To book: http://www.sacredlighttantra.com/buy-tickets/tickets-relaxingintopleasure/

Relaxing Into Pleasure - Empowerment

Relaxing Into Pleasure - Empowerment

What does pleasure mean for you and how can you recognise it?  How can you relax into an pleasurable encounter or relationship and stay aware of yourself? 

Do you feel quite passive or nervous in the bedroom. Or do you start worrying about you’re getting it right?   Or do you put up with stuff because you think someone else wants it and you don’t know how to change things? Yet you know you need to. Or do you put pressure on a partner for a particular outcome because you think he or she wants it, when really it’s your ego or fear in charge?

Performance Anxiety is rife and natural but it might not be what you think it is. So it's time to explore what’s beyond it;

What might it be like to learn to feel more pleasure in your own body rather than worrying about someone else’s? What might it be like to be relaxed and creative? What might it be like to initiate the intimacy you want? What might it be like to know what’s possible?

After all if we can’t imagine it, we can't ask for it.

In this simple, profound work we explore about how we can relax more into pleasure rather than worry about performance.  How to understand more about how to move from 'Am I doing it Right?' to 'Am I Enjoying this? And what would make it even Better?’  

Illuminating what holds you back from expressing what you want, we ask how can you be slightly braver and slightly naughtier and a lot more relaxed?   With friendly collaborators you’ll stop focusing on 'over giving' and come back to honesty. Stopping being 'done to’ is powerful. Stopping being over focused on another's pleasure allows us all to feel freer, more confident and empowered. 

In a gentle and enjoyable way, you’ll come to understand the joys of initiating for yourself, understand more about your pleasure, learn about sensual, nurturing and erotic touch, learn to focus attention in your own body, be more creative and courageous, have fun meeting others in short encounters. There will be space to discuss your fears and hopes as a human who simply wants to be open about the longing to feel connection and pleasure.  Understanding why, how and then what. Being a sex geek is fun and confidence building. Curiosity and courage is all you need. 

These Sunday sessions will be clothes on to allow focus, safety and deeper relaxation into feeling. 

Creativity: The Wheel. How to feel. What to want? Why be willing? Who’s it for? What’s possible? Sensual Touch skills for the Terrified. Trust in yourself and others. How to be clear. 

Sexuality: The Joys of Taking. Admitting you want it. Why No is a welcome change of direction not rejection. Courage to be you in all your desires, vulnerability and fun. 

Empowerment:  Let’s Play. The Joys of Allowing.  Be surprised and relax. For the confused at heart this is an intro to simple kink, building clarity and erotic charge. Explore your erotic leadership skills with kindness.

Thursday Lates at The Whitworth: Art, Intimacy, Sexuality, Consent

This free, open workshop brings together Art Historian Sara Riccardi and Intimacy Coach Alison Pilling in an exchange on how art has historically engaged with issues of intimacy and sexuality and its relevancy today.

Sara Riccardi will respond to the Whitworth Collection with a talk that questions the role of art in representing themes of love, desire, sex and consent.

In a practical workshop, Alison Pilling will discuss the latest ideas around consent and touch in the sex education community and invites you to consider how you can develop consenting, satisfying relationships. Alison has trained with the leading pioneering sex educators in the world and will share practical tips on creating meaningful connections.

If you’re fascinated and slightly confused by relationships and curious about what art offers to guide us through, this evening promises a thought-provoking experience.

Women's Drop in Class - Bringing Consent to Life

Have you wondered if there’s more than you’re experiencing?

Would you like more confidence and knowledge about the possibilities for pleasure in Sex?  

Want to reignite your interest in yourself and your relationships? 

The Wheel of Consent is taking the world by storm and we hear and read a lot about Consent after #Me Too. How does this affect you and how can we make this matter in our lives and bedrooms and create the experiences we want?

Feeling pleasure, which is through your skin, is missing from most of the agenda which is focused on prevention rather than pleasure. This gathering allows us to learn more about what's possible for Women's sensuality and touch.

This women only, drop in evening includes talks and exercises about what it is that women are missing and wanting. Many of us haven’t experienced great touch and this class will help you understand more about understanding and feeling touch that is for you.

it’s a standalone and as an introduction to a safely held, women only 5-week exploration of what pleasure could mean for you.  In these light-hearted and informative classes,  you'll understand more about what’s possible. It's an invitation to get out of your head and in to your body.  You'll learn new skills and ideas so you can create more pleasure and sensuality in your life.

Are you enjoying Dating or do you need some inspiration and freshness to your approach?

Do you long for a date that’s meaningful, connected and enjoyable which leaves you feeling affirmed and joyful, even if it doesn’t go further than one evening?

If your dates are non existent, boring or disappointing and you want to be a part of something slow not speedy, accepting rather than competing, and somewhere where you’ll learn new tips and ideas in the company of kind, intelligent people, come and join Tantra teacher Annabel Newfield and Sexpert and Tantric Realist Alison Pilling for a light hearted fun loving Valentines evening.

The Genius Between Your Legs

Y*ni Pu*sy, V*lva Cu*t..whatever your choice of word did you know there’s power and wisdom and creative genius between your legs and what’ more she speaks!  Words of love and longing, wisdom and wildness, sadness and sassiness and if we simply listen pure kindness will pour forth. 

With a gentle and playful way in through words, movement and art we can coax, encourage and listen to her story..and we’ll make art with her words. 

Join artist and creative genius Heidi Chadwick and Tantric Realist and artist Alison Pilling in a loving day, devoted to finding your authentic artistic expression in the realm of exploring your sensuality and sexuality, body and voice. 

By the end of the day weaving through a tender and deepening and possibly surprisingly irreverent journey, you’ll have produced a meaningful and beautiful piece of personal sacred Yoni art.
