Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Vagina – Doña dei Cuori

After years of attempting to keep her professional world and burlesque world separate, Cat (Doña) confronted a provocative question: Can women be simultaneously credible, influential and sexual? Debunk critical myths about female sexuality and rewrite what it means to be sexy. Discover how female sexuality is enhances your creativity, consciousness, and confidence. Join Cat to get out of your head, into your vagina. Learn what leadership, love and life look like from female perspective when we embrace our sexuality.

Let’s Get Physical – Evilyn Sin Claire

We have become numb to joy and pleasure of our physical bodies. Rather than celebrating, delighting and relishing in our corporeal nature, we criticize, suppress and shame the vessels in which we live. Join Laura Rose to restore your connection and relationship to your physical body. Practice listening to your somatic cues. Reconnecting to your body can help you revive desire and feel powerful during sex. We’re going to move and groove as we journey deep into our bodies. Surrender to your wild nature and learn to adore your body again.

Divine Feminine Sacred Sexual Healing – Lady Tatas

Since the beginning of time, feminine sexuality has been demonized across cultures. What is sacred, has been named and shamed as profane. It’s time to reclaim that power and heal generations past, present and future through healing ourselves and honoring our sacred sexuality. Join Kiki to explore the relationship between personal power, healing, and sacred sexuality. Connect with what you desire. Through movement, meditation, and mantra we will learn how to harness and transform sexual energy into creative, healing energy.

Giving Oral: Your Voice, Your Power – Diva le Déviant & Sailor St. Claire

What does your sexual power have to do with using your voice, speaking your truth, and having an impact in any conversation? Sexual power is about using your mind and your mouth to create a group experience in which your audience is receptive. Great poets, emcees, and speakers know: your words, tone, verbal or nonverbal body language, pacing, and precision all serve to ignite passion. Learn how your sexual power and your voice work together to make you influential.

Summit Description

Everywhere you look, you find statistics on the plight of women. From the arts, media and education, to corporations and the boudoir, women are struggling to be valued and acknowledged for their unique strengths. It is time to change the conversation.

What would make a difference in your life to help you feel more confident, joyful and passionate? How would it impact your work, relationships and art if you did? When you think about feeling powerful and sexy on your terms, on a scale of 1-10:
– how open are you to receiving pleasure?
– how accepting and loving are you of your body?
– how energized and creative do you feel on a day to day basis?
– how many of your fantasies are you willing to ask for?
– how much does your sexuality enhance your work?

Participants can expect to walk away with:

  • An increase in their self-acceptance, self-trust and self-love.
  • An authentic and personalized definition of sexy.
  • A stronger sense of connection and clearer communication with your physical body.
  • A deeper understanding of how your thoughts, feelings, body and spirit work together to help you heal, thrive and live an abundantly sensual life.
  • Exercises, tips and strategies to intensify your joy, desire, pleasure, confidence and expressed personal power.

Who is Masters of Sexy for…

The woman who’s spent thousands of dollars trying to feel sexy…

The woman who has spent thousands of dollars trying to feel sexy – little black dresses from Nordstrom’s rack, lingerie, mascara, cellulite cream, waxing, hot yoga and skinny girl vodka tonics. You’ve used harsh chemicals, had painful treatments, and perhaps considered surgery…all to feel sexy. You’re good at performing sexy. But you don’t feel free. And you intuitively know you could be feeling more pleasure. You’re strongly considering burning your Spanx for real this time.

The woman who sees through society’s bullshit…

The well-read, socially responsible person who sees through the veils of society. You’re starting to give less fucks about doing things “the right way,” and you want to have a more provocative conversation about femininity, sexuality and personal power. You are masterful at taking care of others, at home, at work and among your friends. You like to experiment. You’ve been to Babeland. You’ve been wanting to take a pole dancing class, or get boudoir photography. Why? Because it is finally time to treat yourself.

The woman who likes to dare greatly…

The heroine who reads Brene Brown and wants to dare greatly and bravely. You don’t buy what the media sells and tells you is sexy. You want to reclaim your sexiness, vitality and confidence on your terms. You want your most authentic self to be in the driver seat. You know what else you read? Erotic novels. And you’re not afraid to recommend one to a friend in need.

The woman who loves her independence…

The independent woman who is generally content. By all accounts, you’re successful and the boss of your life. You’ve got your favorite restaurants, furniture, art. But you have this gut feeling that there might be something more: an elusive wild freedom, deep intimacy, euphoric sex, and abundant pleasure. You’re not even sure if that’s possible. We’re here to tell you, it is. Our Masters of Sexy want to show you how to deconstruct the way you’ve been told to be sexy, and build your own brand of sexy.

The artist who wants to challenge the patriarchy…

The dancer, painter, singer, writer and creator who knows there are few things more political than the female body. You want to deepen connection and intimacy with your audience, take a stand against body-shaming, and help people heal from the wounds of misogyny. Art is your activism, your personal therapy, and your gift. You want to use it to make personal, social and political transformational change.

We live in a society that is sex-negative and sex-shaming especially as it relates to the oppression, repression and ownership of the female body. This is why we hold workshops like Masters of Sexy – because there are limited safe spaces for women to explore sexuality/gender as it relates to their art, work, relationships and lives.

We aim to provide a sex-positive, intimate and provocative dialogue about how the arts are a form of activism and transformational change, not only for the stage but for our lives. This is part of our core values as artists and as a business. We believe in art as a vehicle for social change, and education as a pedagogy for social justice and peace.

In our art and in our lives we take a stand for LBGTQ and female-identifying artists whose bodies and sexual identities are criticized, minimized, commodified, objectified, molested and told to be invisible. Our workshops are about becoming more whole, healthy and happy human beings through the arts.

Our mission is to celebrate the human experience through smart, sexy, entertaining education. The Masters of Sexy Summit vision is to change the conversation women are having about how their sex and gender impact their lives … To one where people exalt and celebrate the biological, emotional, cognitive, sexual and spiritual attributes of women and the feminine.
