Sex & Love in the Age of Trump (New York)

  • Bustle 315 Park Avenue South, 11th Floor New York City USA (map)

**Capacity is limited to 30 attendees**

Since the election, have you struggled to feel safe with and rely on your partner? Have you felt frustrated, angry, and disappointed when they *just didn’t get it* (even though you’ve explained it a million times)? Have you struggled to have, never mind enjoy, sex? You aren’t alone.

Join Passion by Kait & Ladies Get Paid for 90 minutes of shared reality, support, & self-empowerment. In this facilitated discussion, you’ll gain the knowledge, skills, & tools to navigate sex and love in these tumultuous and often terrifying times. Early bird closes at 9am on August 1st.

Key takeaways:

  • Decide how to delegate your energy between your relationship & your resistance
  • Explain why so many couples are struggling with physical & emotional intimacy since the election
  • Understand how knowing yourself & your partner better can help your sex life & relationship thrive in this challenging time
  • Practice simple acts of resistance that you can use in your relationship
  • Embody your pleasure as part of the resistance 

About the instructor:
Kait Scalisi, MPH is an acclaimed sex educator for women who crave a sex life that’s as intimate, exciting, & fulfilling as the rest of their relationship - while feeling totally comfortable, and without twisting themselves into a pretzel or spending hours a day on intimacy-building activities. Her background in neuroscience and public health, combined with her experience living and loving as a person with disabilities, helps her provide a fully realized perspective of what it takes to keep the spark alive – no matter what life brings.

About our partner:
We'll also be joined by CYCLES + SEX, an ecosystem of education and tools that highlight the interconnectedness of our sexual, menstrual, hormonal and reproductive health to empower people and their bodies, who will provide local resources for women.

About our host:
Bustle is an online publication that's for and by women who are moving as fast as you are. They deliver everything you want to know, see, and read right now because you’re passionate about making a difference, making connections, and, more than anything else, making your mark.



Do you allow men?
Sorry, not at this event. We do welcome cis women, trans women, and non-binary/gender nonconforming folks.

I cant find childcare.
No problem - bring the kids! Feminism can never start too young.

The ticket price is too much for me right now.
Email us and we'll figure it out.
