Sexual Intelligence: A New View of Sexual Function & Satisfaction

  • 4107 Charlotte Ave Nashville, TN, 37209 United States (map)

Workshop description:

Thursday, July 23, 2015 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

What do most people say they want from sex? Some combination of pleasure and closeness. But that’s NOT what most people focus on during sex.

Instead, most people focus on how they look, smell, and sound; what they imagine their partner is thinking; ignoring distracting thoughts & feelings; and most of all, their performance. And that leads exactly to what so many people are afraid of: sexual “dysfunctions” like erection, orgasm, or desire problems. Using an honest, down-to-earth approach that’s both valuable and entertaining, Marty will present an alternative: Sexual Intelligence. After all, sex is much more than an activity—it’s an idea.

Participants will gain:

1. New ways to focus on what brings intimacy and pleasure during sexual interactions;

2. Insight into how each person constructs their own sexual beliefs and limitations--and how to change or expand these.

A certificate of attendance is available.
