Smarter Sex with Leah and Tom

Sat, Jan 19 from 6pm - 9pm

This event has passed.

We've all been through sex ed of some kind, but for many of us, some pretty important topics were left out. While condoms and other barriers are very important, they won't exactly help you keep your flogger clean. So what is a kinkster to do when faced with smarter sex and kink practices? Leah and Tom will give you direct answers and debunk myths about STDs/STIs, bloodborne pathogens, and how to keep your sex toys clean and ready for use - something your partners are sure to appreciate. We promise to make this much less awkward than your parents and teachers did.

Tom will supply the use of his autoclave for your glass and metal toys. Please bring them in a plastic ziploc bag, and Tom will run them through the autoclave during the workshop. They will be sterilized and ready to take home by the end. There is a $4.00 fee per each item you bring.


No late entry will be allowed due to the safety information in this class. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start of class.

Open to all 18+

Attendance is limited to 30 people.
