Sexual Myth Busting with JoEllen Notte and Elle Chase

Thursday, August 20, 2015 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
$30 admission
Tickets can be purchased in-store or online!

Whether in movies, locker rooms or from people who swear that all their other partners did it – everyone’s been exposed to some form of sexual urban legend. Stop wondering “how?”, “why?” or “do people really do that?!!” and let sex educators Elle Chase and JoEllen Notte answer all of your burning bedroom questions. In this workshop find out the truth about some of the things you’ve heard “everyone’s” doing and get the facts on the how to make some stuff that sounds impossible or unenjoyable a bit more realistic and fun. We’ll tell you what’s real, what’s not, how to enjoy things you never thought you could, and why it’s okay if things just aren’t realistic for you (hint: the phrase “cup of tea” will be used). This interactive workshop will include plenty of time for questions and the option to ask them anonymously.

Please is thrilled to have JoEllen and Elle premier their first collaborative workshop at our store! For more information about our lovely instructors, read their bios here. Drinks will be served at the beginning of the event, and there will be time afterwards for private shopping, where JoEllen and Elle can offer advice and help select products.
