This workshop explores definitions of sex and sexuality and encourages participants to broaden their understanding of each beyond gendered, heteronormtaive, penetration and performance-focused social scripts. Grace guides participants through opening up these definitions towards a more inclusive, pleasure-focused view of sex and sexuality. She also teases out sex positivity and shame and how influential both can be in a person’s sex life. Many ‘norms’ and ‘should’s around sex are brought to the surface and tackled with empathy and kindness, helping participants feel more informed and empowered to create sexual experiences that they truly want, rather than what they think they should have. Embracing true sex positivity and dismantling shame = the best sex ever!

As with all of Grace’s events, this interactive workshop can be adapted to be delivered as a talk, and can be tailored to various age groups and knowledge levels. Get in touch today with any questions or to make a booking! Please scroll down for a testimonial from the NUI Galway Psychological Society.

Testimonials
“Grace gave a fantastic workshop for us on sex positivity as part of SHAG week. She created a safe and encouraging learning environment throughout the workshop and covered important topics in a relatable and accessible way. Furthermore, Grace was very communicative and helpful in the run-up to the event. The workshop was engaging and enlightening and I would highly recommend Grace’s workshops to others”. – Eva, NUIG Psychological Society.

“Grace provided such a fantastic workshop tailored so well the needs of students. Everything provided within  both workshops were educational, informative and relevant to the student population currently. Above all else Grace ensured there was a high level of respect in creating a safe space for all members to ask any questions. I would most certainly recommend both Sex on Screen and the Best Sex Ever workshops to all students” Saoirse Mulvihill VP for Welfare TUS Students Union.

“I believe workshops like yours are essential, I wish I had had this kind of sex ed and sex positive information when growing up; thankfully now as an adult I can still enjoy, participate and learn about all of this through wonderful workshops like today’s. Also loved how everything was as gender-neutral as possible and how kind you were explaining different topics, it completely felt like a safe space”. – Participant, Best Sex Ever Workshop hosted by UCC Student’s Union.

“Grace’s workshop was such a safe and inclusive space for all. Her openness around discussing everybody’s needs, regardless of their gender, sexual preferences, or ability made the workshop such an enjoyable and informative space to be. She also went above and beyond to make sure that she answered all of the questions that students had submitted to her in a way that really helped to destigmatise conversations surrounding sex! We will definitely be getting Grace back in the future for SHAG Week!” Alannah O’Connor, Welfare Officer, UCC Students’ Union 2022/23.

This service is fully limited to Sexuality Education. All advice is given in an honest manner and as guidance only. By using this service, you agree that you make your own decisions, relying solely on your discretion; any use you make of such answers, advice or services is at your own risk and ‘Grace Alice Sexuality Educator’ cannot be held responsible or be liable for any damages or losses resulting from your reliance on such answers or advice.

What is a peer-to-peer support session?

Firstly, let us start with what the session is not! I am not a practicing sex therapist, sexologist, medical professional, psychotherapist, psychologist, counsellor, or mental health professional. Therefore, I do not provide medical advice (although I may recommend that you seek guidance from a medical professional if appropriate) or a therapy service.

Sex & Relationships Education is a separate field to these professions, and I employ my own unique approach based on my qualifications, training, and experience. I hold an undergraduate degree in Occupational Therapy and a Masters degree in Health Promotion. I have over six years experience working as a Sex & Relationships Educator and have undergone continuous professional development and training. I also studied empathy education as a UNESCO scholar, which informs my approach. Details of my qualifications and training are available on my LinkedIn page – please see the ‘About’ page also!

Within a session, I offer a confidential and safe space for discussion of various issues relating to relationships and sexuality. I strive for a relaxed, informal vibe, where you can chat about something that you have been struggling with. I can offer a friendly and non-judgemental listening ear, suggestions on how you can approach your own personal situation, general information on the related topic(s) and details of relevant professionals, support services and organisations (usually in a follow-up email). I can accommodate sessions relating to many topics relating to relationships and sexuality – including but not limited to body image, sexual communication, consent and boundaries, protection, anatomy, vaginismus, porn, STIs and STI stigma, healthy and unhealthy relationships, gender and sexuality, pleasure, arousal, desire, infidelity, break-ups, dating, and more.  I want my clients to feel relaxed, comfortable, and free to talk without fear or shame, like they would with a very close friend!

Please note that the session must be paid for in full at least 24 hours prior to the session, using the payment method and details I will provide to you in an email. If you do not have PayPal, we can arrange another form of payment (Revolut or bank transfer – please factor in the extra time it will take you to set up an account if needed or the possible delay in bank transfers, this may slightly affect the scheduling of your session).

Am I guaranteed to have a session?

Imay choose not to do a session with you if I feel that I am unable to offer support or education relating to your situation. I will contact you to let you know if I have decided that my service is not a good fit for you, and I will offer some suggestions regarding more suitable professionals/organisations/services to contact.

Although we may chat about lots of different things during a session, if someone has clearly not been truthful in the booking form about the topic area that want to discuss and appear to have an ulterior motive in booking the session, I may choose to end the session. The same rule applies to a situation where someone is clearly not who they have stated they are in the booking form. 

I cannot offer sessions to anyone under the age of 18 years. I may choose to ask you to present a copy of a valid form of I.D. if I feel that confirmation of age is needed. Requesting to book a session indicates that you are aged 18 years or over, and that you are being truthful in disclosing your age.

If I feel that someone is being disrespectful, offensive, or inappropriate, and I feel uncomfortable, I may choose to end the session. I may also end the session if I believe that it is being recorded.

Is it all confidential?

Y

es! Confidentiality is essential to a service like this and I will do everything in my power on my end to protect it.

Here is what I will do on my end; I will abide by GDPR guidelines and make every effort to keep all personal information relating to sessions safe. Booking requests and emails with a form attached/included will be retained for no more than 1 year. The form may be printed, and I may take notes before, during and after the session either by hand or typed. Forms, notes, and USB key will all be stored in a locked file safe in my home office. All forms and notes (hard and soft copies) will be deleted and/or destroyed after one year.  I will send you a Zoom Meeting ID and password before the session using the email address you have given me. I will use headphones and will be alone in a private space during all sessions. All  records of calls and video calls will be deleted after one year.

Please be mindful of what you choose to share within the session. I have an obligation to break confidentiality and report to Tusla and/or the Gardaí any disclosures of child abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse and other crimes.

Here is what you must do on your end! You must not screenshot, record and/or distribute any part of your session. It is also your responsibility to protect your privacy as much as you like on your end. This may include keeping your phone password-protected, using a non-identifiable email address that does not include your name, deleting correspondence, making sure you have a private space for your session where you will not be interrupted or overheard, etc.
