Poly and Pegging and Pleasure, Oh My!

Coming in with a late post this week, but for good reason. There’s been a lot going on in Sex Coach Shannon’s world.

First up: a review of October’s Happy Kitten Pleasure School weekend of classes.

A Dip in the Pool at Pleasure School

Prive is an upscale, private community space for lifestyle couples in New Orleans. Within the walls of Prive, you can find The Portal, a fully outfitted rentable BDSM space for day- or overnight-stays.

Happy Kitten Pleasure School classes take place in The Portal, and are followed by a dip in the clothing-optional pool afterward. At least, that’s what happens if all the students aren’t too drawn to the pool to head to class.

Polyamory Panel

My first visit to Prive was on Saturday, where I was invited at the last minute to assist with a Polyamory Panel for one of the Pleasure School’s classes. The panel would take place at the pool (no getting wet required), and be a little more casual than the usual classroom-style session in The Portal.

And casual it was. With all but our keynote speaker lounging in the pool, we discussed everything from attachment styles to the various sources of jealousy, to gatekeeping in polyamory, safety at play parties, and some experiences Black partygoers have navigated in these spaces.

The atmosphere was calm and welcoming, and helped me look forward to my class the next day.

Pegging in The Portal

Pegging was the second of three Sunday classes happening at The Portal this weekend. I arrived just as the previous class on Impact Play was coming to an end, which made for lovely conversation.

My class was small but adventurous, and included people with very different reasons for attending. From beginner tips to ideas for pegging veterans, we talked about making anal sex safe and fun, which toys were best for what, and how to make putting harnesses on look sexy instead of awkward.

All in all, it was a great success! I’m looking forward to even more classes in the future. The Pleasure School’s next weekend will in late November.

Looking Ahead…

My client sessions are slowly but surely filling my calendar, and I couldn’t be more excited! If you could use a private coaching session, head on over to my booking page or contact me with any questions about whether coaching is right for you.

I’ve been active on Reddit over the last week, answering questions about bed death, mismatched libidos, anal douching, and copulatory vocalizations. I’m planning to turn some of these helpful, upvoted comments into articles on Medium, so follow me on either site if you’d like!

Welp, it’s been quite a Monday, and I’m ready for bed. See you next week, and stay sexy. ❤
