      An Introduction to Ethical Hook-Ups

      Escort Georgie Wolf shares the secrets to a successful sex life. A crash-course in ethical techniques for creating connection, ensuring consent, and having incredible sex.

      Nowadays, hook-up culture is bigger than ever. Online dating gives us access to thousands of potential partners at the touch - or swipe - of a button. But many of us still aren't getting exactly what we want. Stories of disrespect and disappointment are common. ‘An Introduction to Ethical Hook-Ups’ is a crash course in better casual sex, with straightforward skills for finding the right partners, making genuine connections, and negotiating sexual encounters that leave everyone better off.

      This hookup workshop is designed for people of all ages and genders. It's a practical and sex-positive approach to having great sex. Questions answered include:

      • Can casual sex be good for us?
      • How do I flirt without being creepy?
      • What's the easiest way to make friends with a new date?
      • How do I ensure consent without feeling awkward?
      • Is it okay to walk away after a one-night stand?

      Georgie Wolf (from Curious Creatures and The Art of the Hook-Up) is an Aussie escort, writer, and educator with a mission: to help others lead more successful sex lives.

      TICKETS, LOGISTICS, LATE POLICY
      Tickets are released in ‘rounds’, where ‘round one’ tickets are cheaper, to encourage you to book in early. There is no other difference between the ‘rounds’ of tickets.
      Tickets range in price from $75 to $125, per person.

      It is never possible to buy tickets on the door, nor by paying with cash. See our FAQ for more information on this: https://www.curiouscreatures.biz/faq.html

      Unless otherwise stated, workshops start at the advertised time, and doors will be locked ten minutes later. This is because late arrivals interrupt the dynamic of the group, and will miss crucial safety information.
