Everybody's Doing It: Talking About Sex and Disability

It's a persistant myth that good sex should be spontaneous and should involve (at least!) one party member hanging upside down with their legs wrapped around their ears. At Venus Envy we know that everyone and anyone can have hot sex, regardless of abilities, shapes, sizes, colours, gender, orientation, etc. In this workshop we will outline ways in which folks who experience pain, or altered mobility and/or sensation, can spice up their sex life using toys and position accessories.
