      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 course 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?

      Facilitator: Georgie Wolf

      LOGISTICS
      LATE POLICY: 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.
      TICKETS ON DOOR?: All workshop tickets must be pre-purchased online, before the event. It is never possible to pay cash at the door; you will be turned away. More info at https://www.curiouscreatures.biz/faq.html

      TICKETS
      Our 'rounds' of tickets are really simple: they're all the same, except that some of them are cheaper, to encourage you to book in early (because it makes a huge difference to us in terms of planning).
      Round One tickets are similar to 'early bird' tickets, and make up almost half of all ticket sales.
      Round Two tickets, slightly more expensive than Round One, also make up almost half of all ticket sales.
      Round Three tickets are generally only there once we're close to being sold out, but can squeeze in a late-comer or two.

      If you're feeling generous, you can buy whatever ticket feels right, but in general, folks buy the cheapest ones available.

      For this workshop, tickets range in price from $75 to $125, per person.
