Come learn and play with Lucie Fielding (therapist, sex educator, and author of Trans Sex), and sex educator Jamie Joy in an explorative and engaging workshop on gender-affirming eroticism and trans sex. Whether you identify as gender expansive or play with someone who does, this space is for you! Learn how to find "gender-pleasure" in your body; how to approach your body and those of your partners with an open mind; and tools to help you experience your body as the magical polymorphously perverse playground of wonder it can be! Topics will include: language, communication & negotiation, trans-specific techniques, toy demos, de-centering genitalia, kink/BDSM, dating & cruising, and more! Plus plenty of time for Q&A.
This workshop is open to folks of all genders, sexualities, and experience levels.
Lucie Fielding, PhD, MA, LMHCA, Resident in Counseling (she/they) is a white, neurodivergent, queer, trans misogyny affected (TMA) femme, and a therapist practicing in Virginia and Washington (on Monacan lands and unceded Duwamish territory, respectively). They specialize in sex therapy, kink-knowledgeable therapy, 2SLGBTQIA-knowledgeable therapy, sex work-affirming therapy; and they work from narrative, imaginal, and somatic frameworks that honor the (intergenerational) wisdom of the body, promote community-care, and support empowered embodied eroticism. She holds an MA in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute (2018) and a PhD in French from Northwestern University (2008), specializing in erotic literature. Their background in literature attunes them to the ways that cultural scripts inscribe themselves on our bodies and inform our embodied erotic lives. In addition to being a therapist, Lucie is a sex educator who has facilitated workshops for a range of groups, organizations, universities, and agencies. They are the author of Trans Sex: Clinical Approaches to Trans Sexualities and Erotic Embodiments (2021), which was awarded an AASECT Book Award in 2022 (Sexuality Professionals Category) and named a finalist for a 2022 Lambda Literary Award (Lammy) in the Transgender-Nonfiction category.
