About the Event
STARS Talk is a framework for having a safer sex conversation. It covers the 5 essential elements to co-create consensual and conscious intimate encounters: Sexual health, Turn-on’s, Avoids, Relationship Intentions and a Safer sex container.
Most of us have never really considered saying what we want, what turns us on, or the meaning of sex to a potential partner. Since it is something we may have never done, it can feel foreign or awkward at first (but so does getting naked with someone!)
When entering into a new intimate relationship, it is essential that you understand and can speak your STARS.
Nothing makes this easier than Practice.
In this workshop, we will go through each element, how to create your own STARS talk, and practice in an informal way.
Each element will be discussed, then people will be put into small groups to practice sharing.
Meet others, learn from them and help each other create a new language to use in dating.

What people have said about this workshop:
"I was a little terrified about what to expect-how was I going to speak about what turns me on in front of complete strangers? Instead it was liberating and informative. Fun too!"
"I have done this workshop over 3 times and everytime I do it, I learn more about myself. "
"Practicing STARS in this way first seemed prescriptive, but once we got started, I was able to gain so much from just talking out loud. STARS has completely changed the way I approach sex and relationships."
