What’s it all about?

This class is all about pleasure! Sex educator Kate McCombs will teach you the ins and outs of your pleasure anatomy and physiology so you can maximise pleasure in your sex life.

Rather than the reproductive focus most of us learned in school, Kate’s style of grown-up sex ed focuses on the feel-good aspects of sex, regardless of sexual orientation or relationship status. With plenty of laughs, and examples of nerdy sex trivia, Kate will offer some useful strategies for how to make the most out of your sexual response.

What will we cover?

  • The importance of pleasure and benefits of masturbation
  • How to pleasure the whole clitoris (not just the part on the outside!)
  • Male anatomy, including how to find and stimulate the prostate
  • Demystifying the G-spot and female ejaculation
  • How to make using safer sex methods erotic and pleasurable
  • Sex toy basics and things to consider when getting one
