Every Melbourne woman and her dog has heard of Ladies of Leisure.
The celebratory and collaborative community publishes zines, runs workshops and parties, creates films, makes and sells a range of cool merch, while also providing up-and-comers the tools to pursue their dreams.
Cute as, right?
What’s even cuter is their newest workshop project: LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX, BABY!
In collaboration with accredited Sexuality Educator Eupehmia Russell, the seminars will be covering topics such as gender, identity, communication, masturbation and sexual health.
They aim to educate and empower through knowledge and understanding, all in an inclusive, relaxed and non-judgemental environment (we've heard rumours of a bar).
LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX, BABY! is a three-week, entry-level course about both learning and, perhaps more importantly, un-learning about sex. And while course knowledge is designed to be built up over three weeks, participants are welcome to come to any and all classes.
So enough rambling from us, here are the deets:
1 Walker Street, Northcote
Maximum 25 people per class
Single class: $30
Three-class pass: $80
Ladies of Leisure are committed to providing a safe space, suitable for EVERYONE. Basically, they're the informative older sister you may or may not have had.
They will also be donating 10% of all profits to Minus18, who provide essential support and mentorship to LGBTI youth.
Tickets are available in both a three-class pass and single class entry via EventBrite.
