Go F*** Yourself 
The Soul and Science of Cultivating a Mindful Self Pleasure Practice. 

There are few other human sexual behaviors that have such a legacy of fear and culturally/religiously/socially imposed story as masturbation does. It has been pathologized, demonized, punished and shamed in as many ways as we can imagine.

What if we began to engage self-pleasure as a means of directly imprinting pleasure into a brain that is biologically wired to overlook it? What if we began to create new neural pathways and brain structure by doing something we already do but with more focused attention and intention?

Part science lesson part ecstatic communal erotic activism, in this workshop you will learn how to compose your own personal erotic home practice, engage in a community self-pleasure practice as a way of challenging inherited taboos and shame around self-pleasure and re-inhabit abandoned parts of your body and authentic pleasure.

This is an opportunity to make love to your habits and then shift them consciously to something that is more deeply in service to your erotic sovereignty and bring it as a gift to the collective.
