About the event

Pain is a barrier but not a roadblock to pleasure. Don't let chronic pain close the door on sexuality! Learn the skills to help yourself and others navigate the experience and maximize your pleasure. 

Are you a healthcare professional looking to provide more compassionate, informed care to your patients or clients?  Do you want to deepen your understanding of intimate relationships and sexual health for individuals facing chronic pain or illness? Are you someone who deals with chronic pain and wants to get more out of their sex life? 

What to Expect:

Expert Guidance: Taught by experts in sexual health and psychology, our class offers invaluable insights, strategies, and practical knowledge.

Inclusivity: This course promotes inclusivity and empathy by including an intersectional discussion of the multiple other identities that can intersect with a chronic pain or illness diagnosis.

Real-World Scenarios: Dive into real-world case studies and discussions of challenges individuals face, addressing the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of intimacy.

Evidence-Based Insights: Explore the latest research, treatment options, and therapeutic techniques to empower your patients or clients.

Continuing Education Credits: We can provide a paper or electronic certificate of completion.

We’re Denver’s home for research-based, shame-free, embodied, and inclusive sex education.  Everything you should have learned in high school and more.  We believe sex education should be pleasure-focused and accessible to all!
