The Atlanta Objectivist Society’s Mini-Conference ATLSOCon is coming up in just a couple of days and I’m really excited to be going again and presenting not only a class during ATLSOCon proper, but also a special workshop on practical sexual techniques (no, it’s not an orgy). If you haven’t already registered, you should get on it as a lot of classes are already full!
This year I’m again going to offer copies of my lectures for sale as papers after the conference to help pay for my travel expenses. I know that I ask for money a lot, but if it weren’t for one donor, Erosophia would run in the red and doing all this fun stuff that adds value to your life isn’t free. This year I’m offering pdf copies of my Sexual Attraction and Fantasy class for $10 before the conference ends and $12 after and copies of my Practical Sexuality workshop for $13 before and $17 after. Of course, you can also donate more and that’ll make me really happy and help keep Erosophia going. You can send a PayPal payment to Jason(at)JasonStotts.com, send me an Amazon gift card to the same address, donate via the donate button on the right sidebar on Erosophia, or contact me for more options. If you want to donate some money but think that I’m asking for too much, let me know and maybe we can work out something.
In case you don’t recall what classes I’m giving, here are their descriptions:
Sexual Attraction and Fantasy: A Philosophical Exploration
What causes sexual attraction? Is it simply a physical response to a person’s body or is there something more going on? In this talk, I will delve into the deeper nature of sexual attractions and examine the cognitive element of sexual attraction and how it can enhance or destroy attractions. Further, we will look at the role of fantasy both by itself and its role in sexual attraction. Through this, we shall come to see that sexual attraction is more than merely a physical response and is, in fact, a robust phenomenon that ties together much more of ourselves than is commonly thought.
Practical Sexuality Workshop
Join your fellow conference attendees in a workshop on practical sexual skills hosted by Jason Stotts, author of Erosophia (one of the top 100 sex blogs of 2011). The workshop will be in three parts. The first part is an in-depth inquiry into anal eroticism, including anal sex and prostate play. The second part is all about orgasms, both male and female, including orgasmic edge play (also called extended orgasms or massive orgasms) and orgasm denial. The third part will be open Q&A where the floor will be opened to questions from attendees who can either ask questions there or submit them in advance if they’re not comfortable asking in front of the group. The workshop will be interactive and participation is encouraged. Price: $10 per person.
The workshop is obviously adult oriented in nature and no one under 18 will be permitted to attend. The workshop is open to singles, couples, poly-groups, and everyone of any orientation.
If you’re a regular reader and you’re going to be in Atlanta, introduce yourself and let me know. I love meeting new people and I’m always open to talking about sex.
