When she was first approached by a local sensuality group to lead a discussion on bedroom etiquette, MoxieintheCity.net creator Christan Marashio seized the opportunity.
“Since MoxieintheCity’s foundation is based on effective communication and accountability, we saw this as an additional channel to use to spread that message.”
MoxieintheCity.net, in the last 18 months, has held intimacy enhancement workshops in 5 cities including New York, Boston, DC, Chicago and Philadelphia. Classes are 90 minutes each, revolve around various bedroom skills and are presented to groups of men and women (separately) and couples. Instructors are qualified educators such as Playgirl columnist Jamye Waxman and Kinsey Institute alum Emily Nagoski.
Make no mistake, these classes are not about titillation. STD prevention and human anatomy are also discussed.
“These classes are about identifying your needs and learning how to communicate them to your partner. We don’t just talk about the physical aspects of intimacy, either. We touch on emotional issues that arise as well. The real power behind these classes is that students are getting together and sharing their concerns with other men or women. The advice that gets exchanged amongst the group is just as valuable as the information taught by the instructors. Students leave feeling more secure knowing they aren’t the only one dealing with specific performance anxieties.”
