Hit Me Up Academy:

Trauma-Informed Kink & Play

Has unresolved trauma or old attachment wounds come up through your ENM and kink journey?

If so, you are not alone. ENM commonly brings up jealousy and insecurities as we open up our relationships, explore multiple partners, and expand our kinky boundaries.

Whether you want to feel more daring & confident in the bedroom, secure in your relationships, and embody lots of self-love – this workshop is for you.

You’ll Learn:

  • How your nervous system reacts in different emotional and sexual interactions, so that you can speak up for your needs in and out of the bedroom.

  • Neuroscience-backed, body-based exercises to help you feel safe with more intimacy, love, and kink without as much jealousy, fear, or sabotage.

  • Specific movements to help you relax, surrender, and enjoy deeper levels of pleasure with your partner(s). We'll practice these together during the workshop, so that you can also apply them in various ENM and kink situations at home.

Format: This is a “therapy style” workshop where you’ll be safely & gently guided to enhance your ENM relationship & kink-related experiences, on the spot, through body-based interactions with your co-participants. We'll have a safe space to discuss feelings and challenges that come up through these practices. You'll take away important relationship skills that you can continue at home and out in the world.

Who to Attend: All gender identities and relationship types (singles, solo poly, couples, polycules, and more) are welcome. Whether you're at the beginning of your ENM/kink journey, or much further along, you are invited to join.

What to Wear: Wear what makes you feel comfortable.
