Talking About Relationships, Desire, Sex, Sexuality

  • Nov 22, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • Home of Tracey Ziegler

Here is an opportunity to get answers to your questions about what happens in relationships: why desire sometimes wanes and even about those kinky things in 50 Shades of Grey. If you have questions about getting back into the dating world or how to navigate online dating then this is the event for you!

Event details:

5:30PM-6:00PM: Socialize, gets some snacks and beverages

6:00PM-8:00PM: Discussion

Feel free to stay after the discussion for a bit for more socializing and laughter.  My home is open to you!
This is not a kid friendly event, but it is fine to invite your adult men and women friends/relatives..

    Certainly one of the more informative and provoking discussions I have been part of, even though I feel we never ventured much beyond relatively "safe" subject matter. Fantasy sex, recovering from an affair, and changes to one's sexuality due to a physically altering event are a just a few that come to mind for another time. As a"life coach" on the subject matter Jay has great insight into a basic human need. Thanks to everyone for the candid discussion, and to Tracy (and Tom) for hosting this gathering.

    It was informative and fun! I learned that I need to turn on the "alpha male" or it won't get done.

      Thanks for coming and participating. It was enlightening.

    Sorry, I can't make it. I broke my toe, and it's painful to walk on. Just got out of urgent care 1 hr ago. Enjoy the discussion.

      Oh no! Sorry to hear. Take it easy and enjoy your weekend.

      November 22, 2013

    • Tracey Z.

      Bummer about the toe, we had a lively discussion.

      November 23, 2013

  • Tracey Z.

    We had a really full house and a great conversation. Always enlightening.

    And please pass along my appreciation to the women in the other group...

    What a great Meetup! Like the first time I met Jay, open to discussing anything and everything. Very informative and clear and even though we were outnumbered 2-1 the men that attended were comfortable and open. Thanks Tracey (and Tom).

    I'll be late... My headlights went out so I'm taking care of it. Will be there as soon as I can! I have dark chocolate covered almonds and red wine as an offering.... :)

    November 22, 2013

    • John C

      Oh Man, we REALLY needed dark chocolate!! I hope it'll last until the next event (already in the planning stage).

      November 22, 2013

  • Natalie

    Not going to make it :(
    Both headlights are out and can't drive. Waiting for a ride. Have fun!

    Hey, can we conference call in for this one? :-P

      Or maybe even a live telecast stream. This event looks like it will be very beneficial to a lot of people. Have a great time, y'all!

    I took myself off the waiting list because I can't make last-minute arrangements. But I'd like to attend a session like this one if you offer it again. Enjoy, everyone!

      November 20, 2013

      Safe travels!

    This should be an enlightening experience, a opportunity to ask Jay that eternal question "What do women want?" I'll be there around 5:45 P.M. with a bottle or two of wine in hand.

    November 16, 2013

    • John C

      Add chocolate with the wine and you've answered your own question....

    • Andrew B.

      Freud gave up on that question.

      November 19, 2013

  • Lori L.

    I'll bring some sort of appetizer. Maybe egg bites.

    I'll bring some fresh veggies and dip.

  • Deb

    I'll bring a cheese tray and cracker.

    November 17, 2013

    • Deb

      that's correct, just the one very large cracker, I'm expected the discussion will result in its multiplication to feed the masses:)

    This sounds comfy and interesting. I'm sure I can learn something here.

    November 18, 2013

  • Tracey Z.

    It would be awesome if everyone could bring something small to share - snacks, wine, beverage of some sort. I'd appreciate it. Now that I'm working again I do not have the same amount of time to put together a great spread.

    November 17, 2013

  • Marilyn

    This sounds really interesting, but I work till 5:15 and may not be able to make it even by 6:00. Hope you can host at another time and start a bit later, perhaps. I may sign up anyway and try for a mad dash.

    November 7, 2013

    • Tracey Z.

      I'm sure I'll do this again, but not sure I'll be able to host it a lot later. I'd say sign up and get here when you can.

    Sounds so great but I will not be able to make it on a Friday night..

    November 7, 2013

  • Lane

    I wish i could attend but i will be out of town...any chance you will be hosting this again?

    November 7, 2013

    • Tracey Z.

      I'd say it's likely ;-)

      November 7, 2013

  • george b.

    Can u schedule another, out of town that day

    November 7, 2013

    • Tracey Z.

      This is the second time I've had Jay come to my house for this talk. It is so interesting! I'd be comfortable saying I'd do it again in a few months.

      November 7, 2013

  • John C

    For those of you who don't know Jay, he spoke to the group a few months back and was very open and easy to understand even though there were a few folks who had trouble framing their questions. This should be a great meeting.

    Tracy, can we bring anything? Snackies, beverages, ???

    November 7, 2013

    • Tracey Z.

      It would be awesome if you'd bring snacks and beverages. I'll have some iced tea and usually have a couple bottles of wine too.
