The Sex Expert webinar series
June 8, 2018, 12 noon (PST)

Interactive webinar with Pamela Madsen and Dan Powers, CSB on Why Consent is Complicated

Read More

What if part of your fantasy and arousal comes from a place of submission and play? Or, what if you consented at first and then something just does not feel right? And, how to have these important conversations around sex and consent, and still keep the spark of spontaneity and fun?

A pioneer in fertility and sex advocacy, Pamela Madsen is the founder of Back to the Body: Sensuous Retreats for Women. Before taking on female sexuality full-time, Pamela was the first Executive Director of The American Fertility Association. She is a fearless advocate for women’s health and integrated sexuality who leverages her raw honesty and well-informed wit to help strip the stigma from female desire and body image.

At the age of 40, Dan Powers was introduced to the Western version of the tantric arts through Charles Muir and the Source School of Tantra Yoga. That introduction began his quest for knowledge about all things related to a more intimate expression of sex and sexuality. Being an engineer, Dan sought to learn other grounded approaches to sexuality and gain an understanding of the inner working from the perspective of how bodies function. After years of study, the result of his quest is a comprehensive knowledge about sex, sexuality and relating from a wide variety of disciplines and traditions including Quodoushka, Sky Dancing Tantra, Human Awareness Institute (HAI), Lafayette Morehouse, Body Electric, One Taste, and many more. He shares his knowledge with his clients and the wider community through his company Beyond the Bedroom asking them to explore what is possible so they can decide what works best for them and their relationships.

Resourcing from a wide range of body/mind/spirit techniques from the East, and his history teaching Kundalini Yoga, Meditation and Gay tantra workshops, Brent’s friendly and humorous approach combines ancient wisdom with an understanding of the urgency and hopelessness facing many gay meth users in recovery.

Learning Objectives:

    • Summarize the potential uses of tantra for gay men in recovery
    • Describe or show how meth affects reward pathways, dopamine, and the nervous system
    • Give examples of interventions including eye-gazing with predetermined or spontaneous volunteer, clothed non-sexual partner positions to build intimacy, and energy circulation.

Brent Horning has been exploring and practicing the healing arts since he moved to Los Angeles from Michigan in 2001. He gained extensive somatic awareness through his 13 years as a certified massage therapist. He holds a certification as a Kundalini Yoga and Meditation instructor since 2007, specializing in gong sound therapy and the yogic teachings of sacred sexuality. He earned his certification as a drug and alcohol addiction at UCLA Extension and after completing his supervised internship and state exam, he registered with CCAPP (California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals) He is currently working towards his Masters degree in Psychology.
