The Role of Personality and Relationships in Creating Optimal Sexuality
Emily deAyala, PhD, LPC, LMFT
AASECT Certified Sex Therapist
Humans have the unique ability to take sex to a higher level, yet many people feel like sex is another item on the to-do list, or worse, like there is something wrong with how their bodies respond. How can we transform sex into something that is not just functional, but pleasurable for the mind, body, and soul? In this workshop, backed up by original empirical research, participants will discover what ingredients create the recipe for truly optimal erotic connection.
