FREE Entry

Susana Mayer, PhD, clinical sexologist and the founder/host of the Erotic Literary Salon since 2008, will speak about one’s “Personal Path to Pleasure.” A phrase she coined about a person’s fluid pattern and style of creating sexual pleasure with an ever-changing body – together with a partner or solo.

She’ll explain “outercourse”, a non-goal-oriented style of sexual expression, which challenges the typical genitally focused approach to sexual satisfaction. Come find out how viewing your sexuality with what the Buddhist’s call “fresh eyes” has the power to transform your physical expression of intimacy.

Attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions anonymously and have them answered by other attendees and Susana.

“Take Your Pleasure Seriously” a quote from furniture designer Charles Eames, is the essence of Susana’s “Ageless Sex Philosophy” – the physical expression of intimacy taking into consideration emotional needs, aging bodies, and health challenges. Making certain all people involved in the relationship are having their needs met.

Attendees will be able to purchase Susana’s new book, Does Sex Have an Expiration Date? Rethinking Low Libido for Women (aged 35-105) and the Men Who Love Them: A Guide to Developing Your Ageless Sex Life.
