Abundant Michael: Erotic

Time out for Tantra

Time out reviews some favorite tantra educators including three I have attended workshops at:

BEST Sacred Touch Workshop 3/27/10 2pm - 8:30pm

I have been to BEST events and they are a great way to give and get a lot of touch and improve your boundary setting skills. What a great way to celebrate Valentine's Weekend!
Experience the gift of giving and receiving sacred, caring touch in a safe and loving, supportive environment. This is an opportunity for boundary setting, practicing trust, overcoming body issues, or simply sharing terrific six-handed massage!
The Beings Enjoying Sacred Touch Workshop is the foundation experience from which the Wednesday Gatherings and Sandbox Explorations evolved. BEST WORKSHOPS ARE AN IDEAL FIRST-TIME EXPERIENCE IN THE WORLD OF SACRED TOUCH. 
When we are clear with ourselves about what we want and don't want, we are better able to embrace our completeness and create safety for ourselves in all situations. That work is exactly what the Beings Enjoying Sacred Touch Workshops are all about. BEST Workshops are your opportunity to give yourself the gift—and responsibility—of your power to say 'no' and to say 'yes' with clarity and conviction!  
BEST is about exploring the beauty and wonder of sacred touch. It's about giving and receiving touch for touch's sake. It's about making your own choices about what you want. It's about empowerment and responsibility, and most of all, joy and pleasure.

These workshops fill up quickly! The March 27 BEST Workshop is already a third full!
Co-led by David E. and Amy S.!

Wednesday Gathering in Rockville - Women’s Anatomy of Arousal 3/3/10

This Wednesday Sandbox gathering we are joined by sex educator extraordinar Sherri Winston (who you may have seen at Beltane) will be giving a presentation on "A Sneak Peek at Women’s Anatomy of Arousal". It will be juicy! Please RSVP here

She will give a mini-presentation and book signing drawn from Sherri Winston's acclaimed book, Women's Anatomy of Arousal: Secret Maps to Buried Pleasure. Learn about the female parts even gynecologists don't know about, and how to make them ecstatically happy! Discover how much you've been missing! Chat with the author and get a preview of her longer Thursday, class. Find out why sex educator Pat Parisi calls Sheri’s book "the best work about female sexuality I've ever read."


Sheri Winston is a medical professional, sexuality educator and author who is on a mission to transform our culture's attitudes about sex. Sherri is a certified nurse-midwife and gynecology nurse-practitioner. During her first two decades of clinical practice, Sheri Winston also taught Childbirth Education & WomanCraft, classes on pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and women's health issues. She expanded into sexuality education and began development of what has become her major work, the Wholistic Sexuality Curriculum.

She feels that life is for learning and believes that her current calling is to help transform our culture into one that celebrates sex as our vital life force, as a source of ecstasy, and as the glue and lubricant of delicious intimate relationships. She invites you to make your own journey to empowering yourself with information about your body, your potential and about Wholistic Sexuality!

The talk begins after dinner at 8pm.  I invite you to join us, though as always what ever choice you make you will be honored in.

Did you know that:

* Women have as much erectile equipment as men? * Most women aren't having as much pleasure as they could because they aren't using their entire "instrument?" * The whole truth about women's genital anatomy is incomplete and misunderstood, even by professionals?

There's more to the clitoris then meets the eye, and more to women's arousal than the clitoris. We're not just talking about the G-Spot here - there's an interconnected set of structures responsible for arousal and orgasm - much of which is absent or misunderstood in both how-to sex books and medical textbooks!

When you come to this fascinating class, you'll find out what's really down there and how to make it work better than you ever dreamed was possible!

You'll discover the largely unknown Female Erectile Network, a crucial part of a whole system responsible for arousal & orgasm.

You get an erotic art romp through history plus an delightfully illustrated overview of cultural ideas about female sexuality and how we came to suffer from "genital anatomy amnesia."

You'll get a super useful simple framework for really understanding feminine sexuality so you can appreciate how it operates and learn to really rev it up!

Whether you're a woman or a lover of women, this invaluable information will transform your sex life -- because knowing what's actually there enables you to reach your full pleasure potential (or help your partner do so).

You'll go home with:

* The secrets of female ejaculation * The joy of knowing how to help your partner achieve extraordinary ecstasy * Empowered sexuality, easier arousal, orgasmic abundance (easier, bigger, better, more, more, more ...)

All this and more awaits you once you know the maps of Women's Anatomy of Arousal!

Wednesday Gathering in Rockville - Erotic movement 2/24/10

This Wednesday Sandbox gathering we explore Erotic and Sensuous Movement with Jim Guzel.

Everybody moves - faster, slower, gracefully or not, sooner or later, we all move. Sometimes, we move for fun – eat something, play a favorite sport, dance, whatever. But for the majority of us, the most fun is when the movement involves our sexual energy.

Perhaps the movement is as simple as taking a deep breath followed by a sharp exhalation. Wiggling toes, thrusting hips, stalking like a tiger, slithering like a snake, maybe it is a dance, following the music as the drums pound into our guts. Maybe it’s just moving to our own increasing heartbeat. And it can be a lot of fun to move in response to another human being who has the same general idea in mind or body.

Often we get hung up in some way about doing this kind of movement. Injuries, age, taboos, bad body image, all prevent us to being less than we might be. I’m a portrait photographer and I wasn’t long into following that career path before I discovered, wonder of wonders, that people look their best when they are turned on. I’ve added many tricks to my bag since then and all those tricks are designed to do one thing, turn people on so that their beauty shines. Along the way, people have lots of fun and discover that they are capable of doing a lot more with their bodies than they previously thought. I’d like to share the movement portion of that experience with you.

Please come prepared to move - dress or undress accordingly. Three piece suits or birthday suits will all work if you let it. Just ask my clients. Be careful with the flowing sorts of clothing and props. You may be rolling around on the floor a bit and the costuming could tangle you up. Actually that can be a good bit of fun, too. But just know in advance that you may be exploring some light, self-imposed bondage if you do go that route.

Jim Guzel is the owner/operator of Aphrodite Photography in Washington, DC. www.AphroditePhoto.com He is also the DC area promoter of a variety of conscious and improvisational dance events, including Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms, Toni Bergins’ JourneyDance and Amy Mattison’s Ecstatic Dance. For longer than he would care to admit, Jim has been pushing his own boundaries and those of anyone who is crazy enough to hang out with him. With surprising frequency, he is also paid to do the same for clients.

The movement begins after dinner at 8pm.  I invite you to join us, though as always what ever choice you make you will be honored in.

Real Doll for grown ups

The Real Doll is no barbie - weighing in at 75 lbs, costing $6k+ and being a full sized sex toy it is different on many counts. But men (and some women) like to play witht them, pose them for photos and buy clothes and accessories for them. Salon asks if the men who own Real Dolls are sick or normal. Perhaps they are just lonely people who like to cuddle at night - not so different from sleeping with a full length pillow. Or in other cases they are porn artists in need of a completely posable model. Finally Nevre sends in a reporter to go all the way with a Real Doll and tell us about his experience (a laugh out loud story in my opinion!)

Wednesday Gathering in Rockville - Dessert on me celebration 1/27/10

This Wednesday Sandbox gathering we celebrate Leonard birthday Sandbox style by doing dessert on me. After dinner Leonard will lay on a table and be covered with dessert topings, fruit, cream and chocolate then who ever wants to can eat dessert off him. A sensuous and yummy experience. (The shower is available after for clean up)

If you want to celebrate your birthday or some other special event this way just let me know and we can arrange it! You chose how much clothing to wear (swim suit or birthday suit are suggested attire and what kind of desserts you want putting on you).

The dessert begins after dinner at 8pm.  I invite you to join us, though as always what ever choice you make you will be honored in.

Dark Odyssey Winter Fire 2010

This a great sex positive event in DC - covers sacred sexuality, BDSM, transgender, poly and more. I have been to many Dark Odyssey event and I highly recommend it. It has sessions on sacred sexuality, BDSM, transgender, tantra, poly. Plus there are several play spaces - a sex play room, very well equipped dungeon and parties. All the people I have met there have been respectiveful and open. It is like going to an erotic candy store but if you don't like certain favors no one is going to force you to try them. And you will not be judged if all you like to do is suck on large mints and nothing else. Many Sandboxer have been to past DO events, so it is likely you will see some people you know. You might think of it as Beltane in a hotel.

Wednesday Gathering in Rockville - Erotic kissing, nibbling and biting 10/28/09

This Wednesday Sandbox gathering we learn about erotic kissing, nibbling and biting. What turns you on, how to do it and safety tips. There’s nothing quite like a great kiss, but add some spice to your liplock with a little sensual biting and it becomes much more than a kiss; it becomes a tantalizing and irresistible weapon of master seduction. Great lovers know the secrets of sensual biting, and now you can know them too. Adhere to the simple directions and tips below and have your lover aching for you tonight!


Some ideas on where to nibble and bite:

  • The nipples of course, are number one when it comes to sensual nibbling. Mixed in with plenty of kissing and licking, sensual biting is incredibly arousing.
  • The neck, in front, on the side and the back is probably one of the most sensual places for biting on both men and women’s bodies.
  • The inside of one’s thighs is a favorite as a place for sensual biting.
  • In the peak of a heated moment, being bitten on the shoulder can be highly erotic, but it is better reserved for gentle kisses until things get really hot. Try this from behind for a super sexy sensation.
  • The inside of the elbow and wrist are rarely paid attention to sensually, but they are extremely sensitive and sexy places for a nibble.
  • The hip is an extremely erogenous zone, and it's great for kissing, touching, and also sensual biting. Near the hip bone and down toward the crease where your lover’s leg begins are the places where you should concentrate your efforts.
  • The back and inside of the knees are another great place for sensual nibbling.

(From article Sensual Biting by Brettani Shannon on Lovingyou.com)


The playshop begins after dinner at 8pm.  I invite you to join us, though as always what ever choice you make you will be honored in.
