The COVID-19 pandemic must be taken seriously. As much as I love working with college students in-person, it simply isn’t safe or feasible for large groups to meet, pass around bottles of lube, and learn together. Luckily, technology still allows us to learn together, even from a safe distance! I’ve taught online sex ed workshops since well before the pandemic began, so I’m pretty experienced in online teaching.

Here’s how I work to make online workshops as engaging as possible:

Privacy-First Approach

Whether your students are on-campus or learning from home, their privacy is my priority. I use a secure webinar software, and only my video will be turned on throughout the workshop.

  • No student video or audio
  • Opportunity for anonymous Q&A before the workshop
  • Students can use chosen names to display in chat

Easy-to-Join Webinars

Joining a webinar shouldn’t be a 15-minute process complete with downloads and account creation. For maximum engagement, it needs to be as simple as possible. The webinar tools that I use doesn’t require students to download anything at all — just click the link, enter the password, and you’re in!

  • No downloads needed
  • Password-protected (with easy-to-type passwords)

Hybrid Education

There are many reasons why you might want to take a hybrid approach to your virtual sex ed workshop. Maybe you have students who are living on-campus, and you want them to engage with your office or organization. Or, maybe you just want to amp up the incentive to attend. Either way, I offer some low-contact ways that you can engage your students (without me needing to come to your campus).

  • Pre-packaged and sanitized packs of barrier methods, lube, and pamphlets mailed to your office and for you to distribute to RSVPd attendees
  • Ability to run a virtual raffle for attending; I’ll handle all prize distribution and shipping

Engaging from Start to Finish

Anyone who has ever attended a webinar knows that they’re usually pretty boring. But sex ed shouldn’t be boring! I work hard to engage my students from before the event ever begins.

  • Customized pre-webinar Spotify playlist to get your campus excited for the event
  • The opportunity to ask anonymous questions beforehand
  • Live-chat available throughout
  • Use of demo items/models, diagrams, and activities in addition to my info-packed presentations

Learning After the Workshop

Depending on who your students are, it might be more difficult for you to get students to attend virtual events. No worries — you’ll receive a recording of your event that you and your students will have access to for two weeks after the workshop, so even people who can’t attend live can still learn.

  • Resources, worksheets, and guides delivered to your students after the event
  • Two week access to the workshop recording
  • I’ll publish the long-form responses to selected anonymous questions

Simple Advertising

You’ve got enough on your hands as you work to safely engage students during the pandemic, so I’ll take care of the bulk of the advertising for you. I’ll send you everything you need; all you need to do is send, post, or print!

  • Custom social media images for your event, sized for each platform
  • A PDF flyer for on-campus circulation
  • Full descriptions of the event, plus answers to common student questions about online sex ed

The Workshops

Ready to make online learning magic? All of my in-person workshops are able to be conducted online, and by special request, I’m making some extras available, too! As always, customized workshops are available based on your institution’s needs and desires. Combine two workshops or propose a topic that isn’t listed here. If it isn’t one of my specialty areas, I’ll refer you to another skilled educator who can accommodate your request.

Pleasure in the Pandemic

This workshop is designed for the specific moment that we’re in. Student groups requested it, so I’m making it widely available for booking.

If we’re meant to be keeping a safe distance from other people, is it still possible to have sex right now? And if so, how? In this two-hour workshop we’ll dive into sexual safety and how it’s changed during the pandemic, what types of sex are safe/risky, and how students can protect themselves and their communities while still pursuing their pleasure. We’ll cover:

  • Sexual health and safety
  • How to talk about boundaries
  • What types of sex are safest
  • How to reduce risk during less-safe sex acts
  • How pandemic precautions can help us be better in bed

Wait, You Want to Do What?! How to Make Talking About Sex Less Awkward and More Fun

Talking about sex makes most of us pretty uncomfortable. Especially when it comes to talking openly and honestly about our sexual desires. In this 90-minute workshop, we’ll unpack some common communication snafus to help you feel less weird talking about sex. We’ll cover:

  • Why it’s so hard to talk about sex
  • How to find your sex talk language
  • How to navigate vulnerability
  • What to do when your wants aren’t matching up
How to Have Shame-Free Sex

Shame takes up so much space in our lives. It’s greedy, crowding out pleasure, connection, authenticity, and vulnerability. It wants their seats at your table. That’s especially true when it comes to sex and relationships. The shame that we’ve been taught to feel through inadequate and harmful sex education, messages from our faith leaders and families, and the media we consume isn’t natural. It’s taught, nourished, and engrained. In this 90-minute workshop, we’ll cover:

  • The truth about shame and sex
  • How you can begin untangling shame from your life
  • Communication techniques for self-advocacy
  • How to cope when shame makes a surprise appearance
Queer Sex 101

*This workshop is open to people of all genders and sexual orientations.

What types of barrier methods should two people with vulvas use? What do you do with a foreskin? Does liking _________ mean that I’m _________?

Mainstream sex ed probably hasn’t answered the questions you have about having sex as a queer (or questioning) person, but that’s all going to change in this workshop. In this two-hour workshop, we’ll cover:

  • What you need to know about sexual health and wellness for queer and trans olks
  • Where to find the sexual tools and toys that bring you euphoria
  • How to let go of sexual scripts and define pleasure for yourself
Supporting Survivors

The conversation about survivorship and sexual trauma is bigger than ever before. But despite our conversations about sexual violence, we aren’t talking about one essential component – how we support survivors on their journey through recovery. In this 90-minute workshop, we’ll discuss real ways to support survivors on their healing journeys. We’ll cover:

  • What to say (and what not to say)
  • Common post-traumatic experiences
  • What it means to be a supportive person
  • Troubleshooting common difficult reactions

Reclaiming Pleasure After Violence

One of the most common issues that survivors of sexual violence experience are changes in desire and anxiety around sex. But despite the prevalence of these struggles, we rarely talk about how we can cope with them – or that they’re issues at all. In this two-hour workshop, we’ll cover:

  • Some of the most common experiences that survivors of sexual violence
  • How we can healthily cope
  • What reclaiming your sexuality after trauma can look (and feel) like.
For Pleasure’s Sake: How to Have Sex that Feels Good

There are a lot of reasons why people have sex, but fundamentally, people have sex because they want to feel good. So why are we taught to feel ashamed of our sexual desires and pleasure?

In this workshop, we’ll tackle:

  • sexual shame
  • consent and communication
  • toy safety and other pleasure basics
  • and how you can safely explore your desires — on your own or with partners!
