Good sluts are safe sluts. Safety is a basic aspect of ethical, responsible conduct and an essential part of keeping things sustainable. You want to have exciting, connected, juicy sex that doesn't endanger your health, doesn't land anyone in hospital and doesn't require complex psychological after care.
This workshop will explore physical and emotional safety in sex: risks in sexual encounters, conceptual tools to think about risk and health, steps you can take to protect yourself and others, testing regimes for STIs, the basics of good emotional boundaries and Q&A.
