From Finn Deerhart - Organizer of events for the Erotic Exploration Meetup
"When it comes to relationships, I believe that many of us are working against strong conditioning and faulty templates. I believe that we need help in addressing the challenges that we face in relationships. As we release blame and get really honest with ourselves, healing can occur. Transformation requires patience, practice, and a holistic understanding of the individual and relational challenges that you may be facing. As we uncover our personal truths, we also contribute to the collective healing for us all. I bring 14 years combined experience in social anthropology, wellness coaching, spiritual counseling, sex and intimacy coaching, and personal development to my client and couples practice"
Balancing Love & Lust is a learnable artform. You don’t have to settle for one or the other.

This 4-part online Zoom workshop will begin on Wednesday, August 12th, and will continue for the next three Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm Pacific Standard Time (August 12, 19, 26, September 2). This particular Elements of Desire series has been designed for male-identified queer beings in relationships–boyfriends, partners, fuck-buddies, and poly-pods.
In this series, you will discover a specific set of skills that build upon each other and can be experienced in layers. These skills are useful to discover how expanding our sexual ranges in-and-out of our relationships can help us have hotter sex and greater intimacy at the same time. Think of practicing these Elements like playing scales, so that you can then play chords, so that you can compose beautiful music that emanates from the core of your being.
This practice is an essential process that will deepen your capacity to connect and enjoy hot sex that feels truly authentic– whether you are monogamous, open, poly, questioning, etc.

Each week’s workshop will include a range of group-process, instruction, and embodied exercises.
