Do you want to explore role play and sexual fantasy with your lover, but don’t know where to start? Does the idea of dirty talk sound sexy, but you feel awkward even thinking about trying? Are you comfortable saying a few sexy words or sharing a sexy dream, but you want to take it to the next level?
Language and fantasy are immensely powerful tools for turning your partner on, asking for what you want, and in general, having really great sex. But we don’t have great models for what that actually looks like (I’m looking at you romantic movies and mainstream porn).
Kate and Louise are here to help. They both travel around the world teaching people how to communicate about sex, and in this workshop, they’ll be bringing their signature blend of humour and warmth to this topic.
They’ll offer practical tips for incorporating hot dirty talk into your routine while minimizing the awkwardness. They’ll give advice on how to explore sexual role playing without feeling like a costume party gone terribly wrong. You’ll leave the workshop with more words, more imagination, and more confidence to upgrade your sex life.
Our previous workshops with Louise and Kate have sold out, so don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the best!
All attendees will leave with a Nikki Darling goodie bag full of safer sex and pleasure samples as well as exclusive workshop discount vouchers. Nikki Darling will also have a pop up store at the event for you to browse our safer sex and pleasure product range.
Loop has an extensive drinks menu and light meals and snacks will be available (please feel free to enjoy dinner before or even during the workshop – Loop staff are experts at stealth-delivering pizza right to your seat!)
Note: There will be some opportunities for contributing to light whole-group discussion, but no required participation or interaction between participants.
