A Brown Bag Presentation

Exploring the Depths of Sexual Desire

Most myths about sexual desire leave people feeling broken and ashamed. We are flooded with messages in our society that tell us what we should want, whom we should want, and how we should want them. Desire is a complex experience, always changing, shrinking or expanding. Frequently it is painful or scary when our experiences don’t align with what we’re told is “normal.”

This Brown Bag presentation is designed for you to better know your desire. I will debunk the myths surrounding it. Experiential exercises allow you to gain new insights into how you relate to yourself. I will teach from The Dual-Control Model to improve your understanding of what increases and decreases your desires. We'll explore how context and your past have impacted your judgments and feelings of shame. Come join me in an exploration of the depths of our sexual desire!


• Understand how the breaks in your sexual desire occur
• Learn how your sexual desire is accelerated
• Describe the influences of context on sexual desire
