Class: Awesome Boundaries

This is Sex Positive Portland's AWESOME BOUNDARIES class for Empowerment, Safety, and Really Good Sex!

Okay, let's admit it, at one time or another we've all said yes when we wanted to say no, no when we wanted to say yes, and maybe when we really didn't mean it. Also, at one time or another, we've pushed someone's boundaries, invaded their personal space, went in for a hug or some other kind of touch without waiting, accepted a lukewarm yes when we knew they didn't mean it. Right?!?

Most of us have! How did it leave us feeling sometimes? Angry at ourself and/or the other person, guilt ridden, pissed off, remorseful? Why do we do it? Because neither culture nor family of origin may have taught us any better. In fact, they often taught us how to go against our own boundaries in order to please others (if they taught us about boundaries at all), to push for what we wanted (a "real man" would go for it, wouldn't they?), how to be nice and not make waves (a "good girl" would not raise her voice or cause a scene).

We'll take the time to explore how we got to where we are today with boundaries, and how each of us can get to a better place in how we set and receive boundaries.
