SEX FOR SURVIVORS:
Embodied Sexuality for Survivors of Sexual Violence with Sophia Chase
At The Tool Shed, 2427 N Murray Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53211
When you’re a survivor of sexual assault or abuse, feeling safe and in control of your body can be challenging. This workshop focuses on embodiment, being present during sex, and sexual empowerment in your solo and partnered sex life. We’ll be talking about triggers, one of the key hurdles in the bedroom after abuse, ways to lessen their presence and tools confront them head-on.
