Want crazy hot sex without committing to hours and hours in the bedroom? So does Brooke Christian, founder of Flirty Girl. As a busy mom and a crazed entrepreneur, she has mastered the art of enjoying amazingly hot, orgasmic sex with limited time and resources. Come discover her secrets for steaming up your bedroom in just FIVE simple steps. Minimal effort. Maximum payoff. Guaranteed.
This workshop will discuss family planning as well as sex pre-, during, and post-conception. So often, couples get lost in the emotional rollercoaster of trying to conceive, and as a result, sex can often become regimented, routine, scheduled, and for conception purposes only. It takes the fun out of the TTC process! We will go over strategies to deal with restoring fun to the conception process, as well as discuss conception options for LGBTQ+ couples. We will also talk about sex after having children, and how challenging it can be to find time for sex and connection with your partner, as well as suggested solutions for these challenges.
Despite common tropes about desexualized fat characters and how bigger people are portrayed in the media, people of size have sex too! Like, really really good sex. But it does come with its fair share of complications. In this workshop, we will go over consent, vocab, positions, products, and all the best ways to pleasure yourself and your partner(s) during your sexploration! Don't consider your self fat, big, curvy, chubby? No problem! Come learn how to please your plus size partner! All people welcome!
Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime live crossover taping of two of the most popular indie sex podcast in the biz.

Why Are People Into That?! is a podcast from queer writer Tina Horn that explores and explains all kinds of kinks from spanking to sexting. For the first time, they're teaming up for twice the sexual liberation! Join both hosts after for book signings at the Pleasure Chest booth.

Forget the hype, forget the naysayers—sex for older adults can be just as good, if not better, than when you were in your 20s and 30s. It’s a myth that older adults don’t have sex. Research shows older adults have active sex lives, feel a great sense of well-being, and engage in a wide range of sexual behavior.
Living a sexually fulfilling life is as simple as expanding your definition of sex and being willing to engage in conversations with your sexual partners about what you want in sexual relationships. The presentation will cover how to increase or sustain sexual desire as you age, accommodations for dealing with age-related challenges and sexy tips to spice up your sex life.
This fun, hands-on, “bodies-on” and informative seminar covers the dangers of conventional condoms, lubricants, and non-medical grade sex toys. Learning how sex can be safer and more fun using vegan and organic brands as well as what ingredients should never, ever enter the “precious petals”. The fun really takes off with a live demo of our top selling Liberator sex pillows and shapes. Learn how to take your sex life to new depths with angles that make sex more comfortable for one, two, or three people at a time!
Looking to make your sex a little naughty? Let our Sex Specialists bring you into the wonderful world of erotic spanking and roleplay. We’ll show you how to combine spanking with sex in a fun and consensual way. This workshop is perfect if you’re feeling curious, need help getting started, or just want to fine-tune your technique.
Professional erotica author and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of over 60 anthologies such as Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 and 2, Come Again: Sex Toy Erotica, and The Big Book of Orgasms, will take you through the ins and outs of modern erotic writing, from getting started, finding your voice, and incorporating your surroundings, pop culture, and personal experiences into your stories to crafting a range of characters and settings and submitting your work. In this supportive, welcoming workshop environment, you’ll learn how to write vividly about everyday scenarios as well as outlandish fantasies, and make them fit for particular publications in the thriving erotica market. This workshop will address the recent boom in erotica inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey, provide examples of well written erotica, and will include multiple writing exercises. You’ll be given a handout listing major markets and further reading suggestions. No previous writing experience required. Please bring laptop or pen and paper.

Women are a deep pool of pleasure and Ducky Doolittle is here to teach you how to swim.

This class is open to all women and lovers of women.
In this workshop, no topic on taking it up the ass is taboo. Learn why a warm-up is important before anal exercise, why lube is your butt’s BFF, and how building comfort and trust with your partner can dispel common concerns such as pain or cleanliness. We’ll show you our favorite toys, how to use them solo or with a partner, cover the perks of having a prostate, anal G-Spot stimulation, and toy and partner safety.
