SOAK UP THE SUN HOST - Emmanuel Avellanet is a Licensed Massage Therapist and sex educator. He is very excited to be co-hosting Soak up the Sun - (Cuando Calienta el Sol). He will be providing massage services throughout the weekend, and also offering a workshop called "An Introduction to Non-Monogamy". As a sex educator, Emmanuel seeks to build a safe environment where people can have candid and meaningful dialogue around uncomfortable topics.The goal of this workshop is to identify and break down barriers that prevent us from being our most authentic selves by examining how our individual needs fit into the constructs of romantic love, friendship, and sex. During the workshop, Emmanuel will facilitate a conversation on non-monogamy focusing on common terminology, mutual respect, and an atmosphere of openness. Whether you are monogamous, polyamorous, have other beliefs about relationships, or are just curious to know more, we can all come together to share experiences and learn from each other. Emmanuel looks forward to sharing these experiences and connecting more deeply with this wonderful community.
