Iron Giant Loft
Have you run into roadblocks on your way to your heart’s desire? Has it been challenging to consistently find people (and sex!) of quality? What if it could be fun and easy to find the pleasure, flirtation, and affection you crave?
Intimacy coaches and sexuality facilitators Alex S. Morgan and Monique Darling will pull out our tool kits and show you how to navigate flirting with more joy and less stress. We’ve helped hundreds of singles, couples, and moresomes of all genders and orientations get the love they want; come take a peek at our map and learn how to make your own journey easier and more fun!
- How to pull in what you want and drop what you don’t
- When you should say yes to no, say no to maybe, and answer a “yes” with action
- How to figure out exactly what you need—and learn the formula that makes asking for it easier
By the end of this class, you will:
- Discover the invitation that takes the stress out of flirting
- Uncover what makes you authentically attractive to others
- Know the three things you need to identify to overcome self-sabotaging attractions
- Practice techniques you can use to flirt—and date—for sexual compatibility
- Learn what a no really means for you, and how to make both hearing it and saying it less awkward
You’ll have an opportunity to practice the flirting and negotiation skills we’ll cover today—think of it as “lab time”—and will leave with a new set of tools to make your dating life and your sexual journey both easier and more fun.
Next, let Alex and Monique help you learn how to empower your sensual conscious touch. Explore the tactile language of stimulating arousal, that touches the deepest part of our soul.
This experiential laboratory will include breathing and chakra balancing meditation, and playful, non-sexual massage. We’ll guide you through an odyssey of touch, that lets you explore the four elements, on/through each other.
First you will go on a journey using the most intimate form of touch, our breath. We’ll be introducing an ancient ritual where you will explore each other’s bodies, magnifying your connection physically, energetically, and spiritually. Then, align your chakras through touch, breath, connection, and shared intent.
Next comes earth touch, as you ground, and recenter, massage, nurture, hold, BE with one another…
Followed by fire, as you invigorate, entice, awaken, arouse, “heat” up yourself and your partner…
Cooling down with water touch, fluid, soft, caressing, gentle, swaying, following, gliding.
With each element, drop even deeper into your embodied bliss state as you learn to touch for YOUR pleasure, as you get to practice asking for the specific types of touch your body is craving/imagining at any moment.
Finally Alex and Monique, being two massage enthusiasts, will lead you through some simple massage techniques for neck, hands, and feet and even throw in some of our own unique “black belt” tools that will leave your partner breathless and asking for more.
Bring a partner or come solo and be paired up with practice partners for the event so you can take these skills home and wow your lover!
Bring a water bottle and a curious, open mind. Wear comfy clothes that you can move around in. Please come without scented products so all attendees can fully engage.
