Human sexuality is usually taught as it relates to neurotypical humans in heteronormative relationships. This is only useful if you want to write romance plots for the CW.
How do things like Depression, Anxiety, ADHD and other mental neurodivergencies impact sexuality? How can people with atypical brains participate in sexual, kinky, or other “non-traditional” relationships?
There will be a introduction and basic explanation of the more common types of neurodivergence and a brief overview regarding the evolutionary theories behind them. Afterward, the class will discuss particular scenarios involving negotiation, aftercare, boundaries, and other factors for neurodivergent, atypical presenting kinksters, and any allistic folx.
This class will have the option for online participation via Menimeter. Participants may wish to use a tablet or computer to ask questions and contribute suggestions. (This is not required.)
A list of resources and links will be made available to attendees.
