Deep, Delicious Vanilla


We talk a lot about being creative and explorative and experiencing new things sexually, but this time we’re going to revel in all that is wonderful about vanilla sex. This is the kind of sex that is really comfortable and perhaps well-practiced. It’s like ordering your favorite dish because you know how much you’re going to enjoy it… Every. Single. Time. And like kink, what’s “vanilla” is different for everyone!

We’ll talk about what it is that sex does for relationships and dive into attachment and intimacy. We’ll also talk about some of the things, both emotional and physical, that can be barriers and what to do about them. We’ll even talk about what we know about more structured sexual relationships (kink and BDSM) and how understanding structure and power can help you understand what’s going on in your sexual relationship (regardless of if you’re pushing limits or just sticking with “the usual”).

This is going to apply to darn near everyone. Bring your friends. Bring your date. It might open your eyes to how make that scoop of vanilla even sweeter.
