(Saturday) 20:00 - 21:30





Event Details

Folx living with chronic pain routinely confront normative ideas about sexuality as our bodies cannot, struggle to – or simply don’t want to – adhere to politics of sexual desirability.

Examples of this include physical aesthetics & physical ability, including sexual activities, positions, stamina, endurance, etc. It’s so valid and common to have a complex relationship to sexuality, which can be amplified by pain.

This workshop is for folx who experience chronic pain, our partners & our allies to explore those complexities.

Almond’s intention for this workshop is to hold space for the exploration of chronic pain at the intersection of sexuality & intimacy – in our own bodies and in the bodies of people we love. We will arrive in gentle embodiment with poetry. We will chat about disability justice, decentering normative sex practices, expanding ideas of climax & moving through difficult emotions we may experience about our bodies and our sexuality.

We will share strategies and turn-ons. I will guide you in a short erotic self-pleasure practice. And we will end with some journaling. It will be filled with deep respect for all of the ways we each arrive at sexuality within this common thread of chronic pain.


This event is part of the “About: Sexual Identities” Conference and can be purchased as a single ticket or be part of the day ticket or full conference ticket.
