Women & Hookup Culture: Why We're Asking the Wrong Questions. Many young women today are engaging in casual sexual activities with friends. Is this Risky? "Slutty"? or Liberating? What if we started asking new questions, that really got to the heart of sexual empowerment for young women...what does sex mean to you? What are your boundaries and do you know how to be comfortable speaking up for yourself? What motivates you towards sexual activity? What's your sexual style? Are you respectful of the person you're with, and will they be respectful to you in the morning? And can you think outside the box regarding your social programming around sexual activities? Dr. Jenn teaches basic mindfulness and awareness tools to help young women learn how to be authentic, safe, self-expressed, supportive to each other, and happy.

Beyond the Hashtag: Changing the Consent Conversation in a #MeToo Era (or Grab 'em by the WHAT?! Sex, Consent, & American Values). Sexual interactions in the United States are rife with misunderstandings and miscommunication around consent. This interactive lecture is based around a personal story of a sexual consent violation Dr. Jenn experienced recently. She discusses how and why sexual coercion is built into the fabric of so many sexual interactions, and how even folks who think they understand consent, often have only a superficial knowledge. She guides the audience through the experience of critical thinking, mindfulness, and compassion, and how cultivating these can help us all find our voice and respect for others. The goal is to shift from a campus culture of coercion, to a culture of consent.

Love My Body – How Do I Do That? We hear the message “Love Your Body,” but what does that really mean and how can we do that? Body image is a very complicated topic to address. This interactive lecture explores media depictions of bodies and the consumer culture around that, as well as gender socialization, components of body-image, what we can do to support each other. Dr. Jenn teaches practical skills to build a strong foundation for self-love physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. The focus is on women’s bodies, but the messages and skills are relevant to all.

Sexual Health for the 21st Century. What does it mean to live a sexually healthy life? This interactive lecture delves into the basic physical aspects of STDs/STIs and what is most important to know about symptoms. Then the program explores the “bigger picture” around sex and sexuality, including the varied reasons why people have sex, fears around sex, emotional factors, gender learnings, and sexual fun facts to keep things light and fun! Way beyond the physical aspects of sexual health, this lecture explores the mental, emotional, social, and spiritual components that get to the heart of sexual health.

Erotic Play: Making Intimacy Fun & Sexy. Exploring our erotic sides requires being creative, authentic, and open to intimacy. This interactive lecture brings this playful and creative perspective to eroticism and engages participants to think outside the box. Topics covered include using the senses in play, sex toys and lubricants, mental stimulation, emotional releasing, and mindful presence. A fun, lively, and memorable discussion! 

Mythbusting Sex! Sex is a complicated, taboo, and titillating topic, and because of its complexity, there are many myths that pass as truths. These myths create unrealistic expectations, or worse yet, leave students unprepared for the realities of sex. This presentation is serious mythbusting with a lot of humor thrown in. Dr. Jenn dispels the top 7 myths around sex. This lecture is an open discussion where basic misconceptions will be addressed and then participants can anonymously submit questions and have their personal questions and concerns addressed.

Mindfulness is the New Sexy. In definition, mindfulness sounds simple - be present in the moment and aware without judgment. However, in practice this can be a difficult skill to develop. The benefits, however, are endless! Dr. Jenn leads the audience through a new experience of mindfulness and their senses, and increases awareness about the power of this simple practice. Mindfulness is the key to changing harmful patterns, improving self-esteem, being present with an intimate partner, enjoying pleasure, and experiencing joy in everyday moments. This lecture not only improves sexual interactions, it improves lives overall!

Couples Intimacy Workshop: Sensuality & Mindfulness for Deeper Connection. It's common for couples in long-term relationships to lose their sense of intimacy and passion. Time, stress, kids, work, travel, sleep, and other competing demands take a toll on intimate connection and understanding. This highly interactive workshop guides couples through many activities designed to cultivate mindfulness, sensuality, communication, and appreciation. Couples leave with new tools and simple activities that can help them see each other through new eyes again.

For Women: Finding Your Voice & Authentic Expression. Many women are raised to keep quiet and prioritize the needs of others. While these characteristics can be valuable in some settings, they often hold women back from speaking their truths and taking care of themselves. This interactive lecture guides women through the topics of inspiration, balance, strength, gratitude, and mindfulness. With new, practical tools, women can start to give themselves permission to shift from self-doubt and insecurity, to living authentic and self-expressed lives.
