Below is a list of workshops and classes that Jo offers in public venues.

Strap-on Basics For Any Hole

So many choices for harnesses and dildos….how do you choose? What do you do with it when you get it home? How do you position yourselves to hit the right spots, regardless of your height, flexibility, or strength? What does it mean for your gender, sexual orientation, dominance, or submission to want to fuck with or be fucked by a strap-on? These questions and any that you have will be addressed in this class.

Pegging: Strapping it On and Bending Him Over

So many choices for harnesses and dildos….how do you choose? What do you do with it when you get it home? How do you position yourselves to hit the right spots, regardless of your height, flexibility, or strength? What does it mean for your gender, sexual orientation, dominance, or submission to want to fuck with or be fucked by a strap-on? What unique emotional and physical challenges are faced by women bending men over and men being bent over by women? These questions and any that you have will be addressed in this class.

Strapping on and Getting Off

Strapping on a cock and fucking someone can be sooooo much fun and super sexy that it doesn’t even matter to you whether you have an orgasm from it, but physical pleasure and orgasms can definitely be a bonus! In this workshop, we check out the variations in harnesses and dildos that enable some people to pop as strap-on tops. Fully clothed but with your participation required, our primary focus will be to test out different positions, movements, visualizations, breathwork, and kegel exercises. We’ll also discuss fucking with your psychic cock. Although some people have an easy time of it, I’m teaching this class from the perspective of someone whose first time having an orgasm from fucking with my strap-on was via breathwork and visualization, after trying tons of different toys and techniques for many years without any orgasms.

Anal 101: Pain-Free Butt Play

Despite popular misconceptions (and possibly your prior experiences), anal play does not have to hurt. In this class, you will learn about safety, hygiene, and using various types of lube, toys, tongues, communication, fingers, and cocks so you can engage in pain-free and pleasurable anal play. I’ll also address anal mindfulness and techniques for prostate and g-spot stimulation via the ass. I welcome all genders and orientations, whether or not you are power exchange inclined, to join me with your questions, apprehensions, excitement, and curiosity.

Penetrating the Taboo of Talking About Uranus

Curious about anal play but have a hard time talking about it with partners or, well, anybody? Shy when it comes to communicating about butt sex and want to gently explore the taboo of talking openly about it? Probe the inner recesses of your conversational skills and discover techniques that ease the way for you and your partners to discuss a backdoor approach to sensuality. In this participation-required workshop, we will use a speed-dating-ish format so that each person has brief, one-on-one conversations with every other participant about topics I provide. The topics will encourage us to talk about different ass-pects of our personal thoughts, feelings, and experiences with our rear ends. Clothing stays on, but we may shed an inhibition or two.

Playing with Prostates

Prostates are awesome…do you have one or know someone who does? Want to learn how to play with one to have/give as much pleasure as possible? Jo has played with nearly a thousand prostates, encountering a wide spectrum of responses to a variety of prostate stimulation techniques. This workshop will give you the information to practice at home and detailed insight into the various options of prostate toys. All gender expressions, sexual orientations, and D/s roles respected and welcome, as are singles, couples, or any relationship configuration.

The Art and Science of Hand Jobs

Even for people adept at handling cocks and balls with their mouths or other holes, the prospect of manually handling cocks and balls for pleasure or pain can be scary or intimidating. Sure, you can just use lots of lube and stroke the cock up and down to make it squirt, avoiding the balls and any maneuvers that might possibly look like it could hurt…. but an artful handjob can be so much more than that. Combining cock and ball “torture” techniques and toys with my experience and experimentation with at least a thousand cocks, cut and uncut, this workshop will give you the knowledge and confidence to give a deliciously tantalizing hand job, working your partner into a frenzy instead of on the fast track directly to orgasm. Whether you choose to call it “cock and ball torture,” “tease and denial,” or just “allowing your partner to lie back and savor your handiwork,” they will be appreciative of what you learn in this class.

Vaginal Fisting From Top To Bottom

I am an enthusiastic fan of fisting, both as a top and a bottom! I share my intimate knowledge of vaginal fisting to dispel common fisting myths and provide you with tools to have mind-blowing fisting experiences, regardless of whether you’re the fister or fistee. People interested in providing awesome fisting will see me demonstrate a variety of approaches to get a hand inside, things to do with the hand once it is safely ensconced within the vagina, how to retrieve the hand, as well as safety and lube considerations. More interested in learning how to take a fist? I will show you what is involved in working towards being more easily fisted by hands of any size and talk about the most important things you need to do to make fisting possible and enjoyable while playing, including communication strategies that transcend Dom/sub roles.

Chill The Fuck Out….With Your Ass

I had been so fixated on anal pleasure for the past decade that it never occurred to me to explore anal massage for relaxation, until I learned a technique called “pelvic release massage” that blows my mind each time I give or receive one. Massaging the anal sphincters like regular muscles releases the huge amounts of physical and emotional tension you’ve been carrying around down there. Once inside, if a finger gently touches the non-prostate/g-spot side of the ass for a few minutes, you get very relaxed and loopy quickly, a really nifty way to hack your nervous system. In that same region of your ass, lower back pain and sciatica can be massaged away, reaching muscles that are almost impossible to massage from the outside of your body. It is also possible to stretch someone’s hips and entire pelvic floor from the inside of their ass. Even if the giver doesn’t have much massage experience, they can tangibly feel their partner’s tension release in an intimate way that enhances trust, communication, empathy, and connection. This workshop will explain the process and benefits of giving and/or receiving a pelvic release massage. Not required: anal experience, an interest in anal play for erotic purposes, or a partner; arousal and orgasm are not the objectives of pelvic release massage.

Dildo Demolition Derby

Want to see what happens when you dip a silicone dildo in silicone lube…..for science? See what happens when sex educators decide to be really naughty and break sex toy taboos! We’ll be dropping glass dildos, using our teeth while giving blow jobs (to dildos), using the “wrong” lube for dildos made out of a variety of materials by a variety of companies, and engaging in, um, sword fighting. We will bring plenty of dildos but also BYODildo that is ready for demolition.

How to Handle A Big Dick

The bigger the better, right? That’s what everyone says in public, but behind closed doors, receptive partners often express a preference for more manageable, non-porn sized cocks and those endowed with large cocks often complain that it is tough for them to find partners who can really handle it. Being turned on by big cocks doesn’t mean you necessarily know how to wield or get fucked by them. In this class, I discuss anatomy, positions, and techniques to help you stroke, suck, and get fucked by big dicks without pain or discomfort. I also address strategies for the person wielding the big dick (strapped on or otherwise) to have penetrative sex without worrying about hurting their partner or having to hold back.

Sex Toys for Male Pleasure: Not Just Your Butt

There are lots of fun toys for men and not all of them involve putting things in their butts! Learn about different brands, materials, and styles of cock rings (vibrating or not), jerk off toys (fleshlight, sleeves, tenga eggs), harnesses for men to strap-on, cock extenders, ball stretchers, electro-toys, and urethral insertables. On the back end, learn about prostate massagers, butt plugs, dildos, and other insertables. Don’t forget men’s nipples! My focus is on toys for male pleasure, including toys that look like they would be painful but just feel good to some people, whether for self pleasure or for their partners to use on them.

Guided Tour of Your Vagina

Wonder whether your front hole is “normal”, what a particular bit of skin is that you have on your vagina but haven’t seen on others, or why certain types of pussy stimulation don’t really do much for you or are painful? Concerned that your front hole doesn’t get wet enough or gets too wet? Want to learn all about your vulva / vagina and how your unique anatomical structure affect your personal pleasure and health? Or maybe you think you know everything about your cunt’s anatomy and all of its happy spots? Do you know how to stimulate the legs of your clitoris, the role of your vestibular bulbs, where you have the highest concentration of para-urethral glands, how/where/when your uterus moves, the exact location of your urethral opening, and that you have as much erectile tissue as a person with a penis does? Do you know whether your perineal sponge or anterior fornix enjoy stimulation? Whether you have spent hours gazing at your vagina in the mirror / on camera or your front hole is a total mystery to you, attend this workshop for a guided tour of your vagina. The intention of this workshop is for people with vaginas, but vagina lovers of all genders are welcome and respected.

Using Breath and Visualization To Heal Ourselves

Do you have former erogenous zones that have lost sensation, are numb to touch, or make you want to jump out of your own skin? If you have lost/diminished sensation in parts of your body for whatever reason, come learn practical tools to use on yourself to (re)establish pathways to enhanced sensation and pleasure. With minimal new age or spiritual language, we will practice breath and guided visualization techniques, without incorporating touch, aware that our challenge will be to continue individually in our daily lives.

Let’s Talk About Lube

Wouldn’t it be awesome if there were a lube that stays slippery forever, washes off skin and sheets easily, doesn’t disrupt the delicate balance of sensitive vaginal ecosystems, doesn’t irritate sensitive mucous membranes, feels cushiony for anal sex, feels unobtrusive for vaginal sex, stays where you put it, is compatible with toys of any material, doesn’t get sticky, tastes good…or at least not bad, reduces friction enough but not too much, is easy to apply one handed, is easy to transport via airplane, is conductive for electro-stim play, you only need to use a little bit of it at a time, isn’t obscenely expensive, and can be used with latex and non-latex barriers or without barriers? A sex-geek’s dream come true! Too bad most lubricants available only meet some but not all of these criteria at a time, making them well suited to only a subset of our lubricant needs. Let’s talk about our favorite lubes, what sex acts and anatomy configurations they’re more or less useful for, and hopefully find a lube or lubes that meets a wider range of your or your partners’ needs.

Below is a list of workshops and classes that Jo offers in private venues.

Strap-on Basics For Any Hole

So many choices for harnesses and dildos….how do you choose? What do you do with it when you get it home?

Our primary focus will be to test out different positions, movements, visualizations, breathwork, and kegel exercises. We’ll also discuss fucking with your psychic cock.

Anal Aerobics

Have you studied Anal 101 and wished it had a hands-on lab session? Want company or guidance while you play with your own or a partner’s ass? Bring an ass, your favorite lubes, and any toys you want to try out/in for this hands-on anal exploration. We will take a guided tour of the various anal pleasure and relaxation pathways, with time to leisurely focus on external sensations with fingers and vibrators as well as internal sensations with fingers, vibrators, dildos, and plugs of all shapes, whether stimulating the prostate/g-spot or not, thrusting or keeping it in, and orgasmic or otherwise. Let’s expand or create your anal play repertoire. Anal explorers of all levels are welcome and toys will be available for sampling, but participation is definitely required.

Prostate Play and Practicum

Prostates are awesome…do you have one or know someone who does? Want to learn how to play with one to have/give as much pleasure as possible? As a formerly full-time ass-fucker, Jo has played with nearly a thousand prostates, encountering a wide spectrum of responses to a variety of prostate stimulation techniques. This hands on (or hands in, to be more accurate) workshop will give you both the information to practice at home and the opportunity to test out techniques and toys here. All gender expressions, sexual orientations, and D/s roles respected and welcome, as are singles, couples, threesomes, foursomes, and moresomes.

Even if the giver doesn’t have much massage experience, they can tangibly feel their partner’s tension release in an intimate way that enhances trust, communication, empathy, and connection. This workshop will guide you through giving and/or receiving a pelvic release massage. Anal experience or a partner are not required; arousal and orgasm are not the objective. Participation encouraged.

Anal Probing for Humans

First, we upload a buttload of information into your brain about anal anatomy, safety, hygiene, and various types of anus friendly lubricants. Second, we all use one finger to romance our anal sphincters or those of a partner, waiting for our finger to get sucked in without pain. Third, we try a variety of movements for the finger in the butt and optionally add another finger. Fourth, prober and probee optionally swap roles. This workshop is for humans of all genders and D/s roles. It is a gentle introduction to anal play, especially well suited to novices, humans who have previously had painful anal experiences, and those who are worried about hurting their partner’s butthole.

The Art and Science of Hand Jobs

Sure, you can just use lots of lube and stroke the cock up and down to make it squirt, avoiding the balls and any maneuvers that might possibly look like it could hurt…. but an artful handjob can be so much more than that.

People of any gender(s) with front holes, however you refer to yours, are welcome and respected.

Vagina Dialogues

Your vagina is a special fucking snowflake, right? Does yours do magic tricks or is mysteriously inconsistent? Would you describe your vagina as persnickety, finicky, picky, sensitive, insensitive, numb, baffling, fussy, responsive, orgasmic, easy-to-operate, porn-tastic, patient, accepting, drippy, leaking, accommodating, ideal, quirky, confusing, masculine, misunderstood, disconnected, stinky, feminine, grounded, centered, healthy, strong, flexible, tasty, delightful, or any combination of these descriptions? Want to talk about it? Even in the kink and queer communities, I sometimes feel as if there is an expectation for vaginas to function a certain way with everything else pathologized or dismissed. Let’s create a safe space for people of any gender(s) with front holes to discuss their trials and tribulations as well as their triumphs.

Using Breath and Visualization To Heal Ourselves

Do you have former erogenous zones that have lost sensation, are numb to touch, or make you want to jump out of your own skin? If you have lost/diminished sensation in parts of your body for whatever reason, come learn practical tools to use on yourself to (re)establish pathways to enhanced sensation and pleasure. With minimal new age or spiritual language, we will practice breath and guided visualization techniques, without incorporating touch, aware that our challenge will be to continue individually in our daily lives.

A sex-geek’s dream come true! Too bad most lubricants available only meet some but not all of these criteria at a time, making them well suited to only a subset of our lubricant needs. Let’s talk about our favorite lubes, what sex acts and anatomy configurations they’re more or less useful for, and hopefully find a lube or lubes that meets a wider range of your or your partners’ needs.

Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Sex Ed

Come pick Jo’s brain! She has two demo bottoms, one with a penis and one with a vulva. There is a table covered in sex toys and safer sex supplies. What do you want to see or learn about? Should Jo use her hands, mouth, vagina, ass, or a sex toy? Where should she use it? She negotiates consent with the selected demo bottom(s) and starts to use what you selected on/in where you selected. Jo does something that makes the demo bottom start quivering and shaking but you’re not sure what Jo did. In this workshop, you are invited to ask Jo questions and direct the scene to maximize its benefit to you. Bring your questions about sexual skills you would like to acquire or know more about (note: BDSM skills are not the focus of this workshop).

Dildo Demolition Derby

Want to see what happens when you dip a silicone dildo in silicone lube…..for science? See what happens when sex educators decide to be really naughty and break sex toy taboos! We’ll be dropping glass dildos, using our teeth while giving blow jobs (to dildos), using the “wrong” lube for dildos made out of a variety of materials by a variety of companies, and engaging in, um, sword fighting. We will bring plenty of dildos but also BYODildo that is ready for demolition.

Sex Toy Tasting Party

Don’t you hate buying an expensive toy, being all excited to get it home so that you can try it out, and then having it totally not work for your anatomy or preferences? Strap-on Jo does! The upsides is that she now has a fairly extensive collection of fancy shmancy vibrators, dildos, and anal toys that you can try out (with barriers of course) so you can avoid expensive toy disappointment syndrome! Jo will be your sex toy tasting sommelier, available to help you decide, based on your past experiences and anatomy, which toys you are most likely to enjoy using or having used on you during this party.

Erotic Massage Party

We bring the massage tables, you bring the happy endings. Want to practice or show off your erotic massage skills? Want to oh-so-generously volunteer your body for practice? Want to exchange erotic massages with that person you’ve been trying to find time to play with? Give or receive an internal and/or external massage while surrounded by the deep breathing, moans, and groans of pleasure from the other partygoers.

Erotic Trance Dance

Let’s put on blindfolds and dance to get ourselves hard and wet without the distraction of seeing each other or being seen. We will dance and breathe and masturbate – touching only ourselves – feeding off the sounds of the music and our orgasmic moaning, the feel of our own writhing bodies, and the smell of our sex. As our conscious brain turns off, we experience erotic trance. Get out of your head and dance your way to full body orgasm at the tantra-friendly-but-optional Erotic Trance Dance. Participation Required.

Anal Aerobics: Anal Play Participatory Workshop For All Anal Adventurers

 

Have you studied Anal 101 and wished it had a hands-on lab session? Want company or guidance while you play with your own or a partner’s ass? Let’s expand or create your anal play repertoire! Learn safe, pain-free approaches to progressive relaxation of anal sphincters, whether your interest is emotional growth, health benefits, full body relaxation, developing a connection with your anus, or sexual pleasure. (Potential health benefits include relief from pain due to hemorrhoids, lower back pain, tight hips, and sciatica.) Bring an ass, your favorite lubes, and any toys you want to try out/in for this hands-on anal exploration.

We’ll begin by sharing different ass-pects of our personal thoughts, feelings, and experiences with our rear ends. We will practice conversational techniques that ease the way for you and your partners to discuss a backdoor approach to sensuality.

Next, I get you ready for getting your gloves wet by talking about safety, lube options, and the variety of available sex toys, including an awesome selection from nJoy. Then, I will take you on a guided tour of the various anal pleasure and relaxation pathways, with time to leisurely focus on external sensations with massage from fingers and vibrators as well as internal sensations with fingers, vibrators, dildos, and plugs of all shapes. We will stimulate the prostate/g-spot and other yummy bits while paying attention to breath and staying present in our bodies throughout.

Anal explorers of all levels, genders, orientations, races, ethnicities, abilities, ages, body shapes, body sizes, and relationship configurations are welcome. People who have a problem with that are not.
