We-Talk Workshop Series

A space to amplify Black voices in the sexual wellness community

We-Vibe is happy to present We-Talk – a free sex education workshop series focused on the importance of amplifying Black voices among the conversations of women’s sexual health, consent, trauma, gender-based systems, pleasure, boundaries and more.

The We-Talk Series features Black educators, sexperts, and public figures providing expertise within their respective fields. All events are free and open to anyone with a desire to learn.

Our goal is to provide a space to begin larger conversations and create storytelling opportunities that can reach – and ultimately help – millions.

Description

You've taught your kids to ask before giving hugs and that they're the boss of their own bodies. You've talked to your teens about the importance of enthusiastic consent and everyone in your home is clear that no always means no.

Now what? In this workshop, we'll explore how to have family conversations about the nuances of consent including:

  • Explaining to children why even though they're the boss, sometimes adults will make body-choices for them.
  • The importance of teaching kids how to respond to body language, non-verbal cues, and other more subtle forms of communication.
  • Talking to teens about what the role that curiosity, exploration, and even uncertainty may play in consensual sex.
  • What consent looks and sounds like in long-term sexual relationships.
  • How racism, misogyny, ableism, and other systems of oppression influence people's relationships to consent.

Description

As amazing as your partner might be at sexually satisfying you, no one knows your body like you do. You know what speed, how much pressure, and when to focus on that exact spot that makes your toes curl. And the same goes for your partner. Often, masturbating is something we do in private, but this act of pleasuring yourself can be an intimate experience to share. Together we will:

  • Learn about anatomy, tips, and tricks for self-pleasuring.
  • Explore the stages of arousing your erotic self.
  • Create a sensual and intimate performance to share with your partner.
