Finding Your Kinks: Exploring Your Erotic Template presented by Angie Gunn LCSW CST

Exploring the depths or your erotic self, while exciting, can be scary and unnerving. In our attempt to find and maximize pleasure and connection, we can also confront parts of self which challenge our ideas about identity, community, and belonging.

What does it mean that you like that certain kind of play? How does your fetish inform who you are and how others perceive you? Where did these arousal patterns arise and can they be integrated into your life in a supportive way?

In this workshop we will discuss some of the methods of exploring eroticism, how to do so in a psychologically healthy and edifying way, to find your optimal path. This will be discussion based, but also include sexological concepts and up to date research on arousal and eroticism.
