Safe Sex Script Makes Awkward Easy

chat-23713_1280This “script” is a good way to initiate a conversation about your sexual history and to ask someone else to share their sexual history with you.  Review your answers to the statements below. Practice saying them out loud in front of a mirror. Next, share this process with a friend or lover. Ideally, this is done prior to finding yourself in a sexually charged situation.

  1. “The last time I got tested for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s) was…”
  1. A. “The tests I had done were…”   B. “The results of those tests were…”

A Comprehensive STI Panel consists of: HIV, Syphilis (Rapid Plasma Reagin test), Oral Herpes (HSV-1), Genital Herpes (HSV-2), HPV, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. Female testing usually includes a Pap Smear and wet mount to check for other common vaginal infections.

  1. “My sexual orientation is…” (Straight, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Fluid…)
  1. “My relationship status is…” (Single. Dating. Living with a lover. Married. In an open relationship with one or more persons. Fluid bonded with one or more persons.)
  1. “My current relationship agreements that you need to be aware of are…”
  1. “My safer sex practices and/or boundaries are…”  
  1. “I use___________ to prevent unwanted pregnancies.”
  1. Share any risky activities you may have experienced since you were last tested.
  1. Then ask the other person, “How about you?”Listen closely to what they say and how they say it…  Ask questions, if you need clarification.
  1. If, after you both have shared your sexual histories you decide to engage in sex, take time to discuss what sexual activities you are open to at this time and what is off the menu. Share you desires, fears and “healthy boundaries.” Healthy boundaries are what you need to feel safe and stay open; they are dynamic and can expand as well as contract. Intimacy grows when you stay present, are authentic and communicate clearly using “I” statements.

The Art of Giving and Receiving

Saturday January 10th 4-8 PM in West Sedona

With a focus on healthy boundaries and clear communication, we will explore the various aspects underlying safe and conscious touch. I will be presenting a powerful model based on Dr. Betty Martin’s “Wheel of Consent.” Through a series of practices, we will begin to fine-tune our appreciation for the various modes of giving and receiving through touch. We will also explore how healthy boundaries can act as bridges for creating intimacy while supporting inner clarity. Open to men and women.At 7 pm we will close the circle and share a joyful potluck meal.

Please bring a water bottle and potluck dish to share. Also bring a blanket to lie on. Wear comfortable clothes and dress in layers.

Suggested donation: $20-30.

Women Healing Women February 2015

Reclaiming Our Sexual Radiance

A Transformational Weekend in Sedona, AZ

February 6-8   Begins Friday 7 PM – Ends Sunday 6 PM

Are you a woman who:

  • Feels frustrated, shutdown and out of touch with her joy and passion?
  • Is ready to give up putting other people’s needs and wants ahead of her own wellbeing?
  • Wants to radically transform her life and reclaim the goddess that is hidden within?

If your answer to any of these questions is “Yes,” this event is for you. Come and experience breakthroughs and discover how to tap into your radiant sexual energy and manifest more ease, intimacy and pleasure in your life.

“Cheryl and Crystal create a safe, inviting space for women to access more of their authentic selves beyond the facades, wounds and stories that can run our lives. Their combination of vulnerability and presence model the self-sovereignty that I came to the workshop to enhance in myself.  I was very moved by my emotional experience, but also left with concrete tools and concepts to keep practicing in my daily life.  I want every woman in my life to have the profound opportunity to uncover and develop her sensual, sexual radiance while being witnessed by her sisters, and this is what the Women Healing Women series offers.” Kelly Cole, Sedona, AZ

Early Bird Price: $247 ends January 31. Thereafter $297.
