Long-time readers of Casual Sex Project know there’s huge variety of casual sex scenarios. And that people have a wide range of reactions to hookups. It’s enough to scare some people away from casual sex entirely. Others have no problem with hookups and multiple casual sex partners. Perhaps not all casual sex encounters are equally harmful (or beneficial) and not all people are equally sensitive to these harmful (or beneficial) effects.
We at CSP believe it is imperative that people arm themselves with the right information and skills, backed by #LegitSexScience, to make smarter decisions about casual sex. Everyone deserves a healthy and authentic sex life, where they feel empowered and self-expressed. So, how do you know what kind of hookup is right for you?
Fortunately for us, Dr. Zhana Vrangalova, creator of CSP, has spent 10 years studying casual sex– stifting through scientific studies and hookup stories–to learn the secrets to healthy hookups. She enlisted the help of sex-hacker/sex-educator Kenneth Play to create a comprehensive and interactive workshop that will help you make sense of your sexuality, find out if casual sex is right for you, and learn how to do it like a pro.
In this evidence-based workshop, Dr Zhana, a sex researcher who studies hookups among young people, will help you determine whether you’re the right kind of person to hook up, and if you decide to engage in it, how to do it in a way that keeps both partners happy and healthy.
So how do you get all of this insider knowledge on how to have healthy hookups? Come to LA next week! Dr Zhana is leading TWO Hooking Up Healthy workshops to share her science-based secrets to smarter, better hookups.
First, catch her at the Sexual Health Expo (SHE) on Sunday January 17 at 4:30. SHE is a weekend full of awesome sex-positive community building with workshops, speakers, and opportunities for discussion. “SHE delivers a crash course in understanding modern sexual relationships with must-attend workshops and captivating intimacy product showcases — all with the chic backdrop of its stylish venues.” Basically, all the fun of a sex-conference with the added bonus of meeting Dr. Zhana and learning casual sex tips!
SHE takes place at Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City January 16 & 17. You can get 2-for-1 tickets (good for both days) using code DRZHANA here.
The second workshop will take place on January 21 at 8 pm at The Pleasure Chest Los Angeles (we love Pleasure Chest, they’re a sponsor of this blog). This one is totally FREE. Seating is limited so be sure to arrive early. You can RSVP on Facebook here.
The Hooking Up Healthy workshop is for all genders and orientations. Whether you engage in casual sex, contemplate doing it, or feel peer-pressured into it, you will learn something!
