About the event

Navigate the holiday season with resilience and grace in the Sexploratorium's empowering class, "Surviving the Holidays: Resisting Shame."

Does the thought of family gatherings already fill you with dread, anticipating the shame others may attempt to impose upon you during the holidays? Join us for an insightful journey into self-preservation and empowerment, where our experienced instructors will guide you through strategies to resist and overcome the weight of external judgments. This class is a safe haven for those seeking to navigate family dynamics with confidence, setting boundaries, and reclaiming control over their own narrative during the holiday festivities.

Discover tools to bolster your emotional well-being, engage in open discussions about family expectations, and cultivate resilience to avoid succumbing to the shame that others may project onto you. At the Sexploratorium, we understand the challenges the holiday season can pose, and we're here to provide you with a supportive community and practical skills to ensure you not only survive but thrive during this time of the year. Take charge of your holiday experience and embark on a journey toward a shame-free celebration that reflects your authentic self.

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!

About the Instructor:  Fawn O’Breitzman has been a college professor for over 20 years. She specializes in issues of Sex and Gender and presents at conferences all around the country. She does inclusion training for businesses and has worked with everyone from hospitals to construction yards to help companies make sure they are providing the best and most respectful care to their clients. She was raised primarily Catholic to a father who had studied to be a priest and an aunt who became a mother-superior, so she also knows a great deal about guilt and shame.

Spaces are limited, so reserve your spot now.  Our classes are research-based and educational, but are not meant to replace expert medical advice or care.  All of our classes are for people 18 years of age and older.
