Feb 9: Body Heat Writing Workshop

Posted in Events

Let’s write about sex! Erotic writing workshop led by the Body Heat femme posse

Ever read through a sexy short story and thought, “I could do that!” This writing workshop is for anyone who’s ever considered writing erotic stories or writing about sex, or who’d like to get more comfortable doing so! No previous writing experience is necessary.

We each need safe space in which to be our whole erotic selves — to delve into the fantasies and imaginings that we’ve learned or been told don’t “go with” our public sexual identities. In this workshop we’ll celebrate and struggle with the fullness of our erotic expression.

In this 2-hour class, you’ll have the chance to try your hand at some explicit erotic writing. We’ll write in response to exercises designed to tap into different aspects of our sexual selves: memory, fantasy, gender, experience, relationship with the body, and more.

Previous participants have found writing about desire to be transformative, feeling that the work they’ve done has opened up and changed not only their relationship with their erotic selves, but with many other aspects of their lives as well. Don’t be surprised if you find, as have previous participants, that you’re more comfortable discussing your own sexual desires after practicing writing about fictional sex! Bring your notebooks or laptops and your most open mind.
