About the event

**Class Overview:**

The "How to Relax During Sexy Time" class is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of anxiety and its impact on intimate moments, approached from a psychological perspective. The class will explore the root causes of anxiety, including past traumas, performance pressures, and societal expectations. Participants will gain insights into how these factors contribute to stress and tension during sexual experiences, thereby hindering relaxation and enjoyment. By examining the psychological underpinnings of anxiety, attendees will be better equipped to recognize and address the sources of their unease.

**Psychological Insights:**

Throughout the course, participants will delve into the mechanisms of anxiety, learning how it manifests in both the mind and body. The class will cover topics such as the fight-or-flight response, cognitive distortions, and the role of self-talk in perpetuating anxiety. By understanding these concepts, individuals will be able to identify their own anxiety triggers and patterns. The class will also discuss the importance of communication with partners, emphasizing how open dialogue can alleviate fears and foster a supportive environment. These psychological insights will empower participants to approach their intimate experiences with greater self-awareness and confidence.

**Concrete Strategies for Being Present:**

To help participants stay grounded and present-focused during intimate moments, the class will offer a range of practical strategies. Techniques such as mindfulness meditation, deep breathing exercises, and progressive muscle relaxation will be taught to reduce physiological arousal and promote a state of calm. The class will also introduce cognitive-behavioral techniques, such as challenging negative thoughts and reframing anxious thinking, to shift focus away from worries and towards the present experience. Additionally, participants will learn how to create a relaxing environment through sensory engagement and ritual practices, enhancing their ability to fully immerse themselves in the moment. By the end of the class, attendees will have a toolkit of effective methods to cultivate relaxation and enhance their sexual well-being.
