First Thursday Discussions 7:00 pm
First Thursday Discussions @ Gallery Erato
May 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Pan Eros Foundation is pleased to create space for people to meet, talk, and share conversation and ideas. Each month, Pan Eros will host a discussion at Gallery Erato with a different topic to encourage the sharing of ideas and to create and expand communities. Pan Eros means “all love” and we support participants in cultivating and celebrating their sexuality. To support this mission, our monthly discussion topics will range among the educational and artistic realms.   Our goal in hosting these meetings is to grow a community that has rich conversations about sexuality. By fostering open discussions, we hope to end the stigma around sex and sexuality so that people may live more authentically and happily. Each month’s topic and host will be announced as they are confirmed. All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, and religions are welcome and celebrated. Kindness and a willingness to respect another point of view are expected.

Our fabulous rope practice and discussion group for men and folks who have lived experience as men returns to Gallery Erato in Seattle. Facilitated in the loosest way possible by @knotkin and @visiblerestraint. Neither a workshop nor a play party, but learning does happen, play does happen – and nudity is perfectly fine.

This is a quarterly event. It happens the third Wednesday of the second month of every quarter. Proof of vaccination required for attendance. (A photo of your vaccination card is acceptable.) No registration is needed for this event but no late entries are allowed. Doors will be locked at 7:30pm. This event is for men and those who have lived experience as men.

Have you thought about including hypnosis in your kink or sex life? Infinitely adaptable, you can use hypnosis to enhance arousal, do bondage without restraints, build fear play and mindf*ck scenes, strengthen D/s training, increase relaxation for sensual scenes, and much more! Doors open for the Hypnokink Enthusiasts’ Group at 1pm, and we start our programming at 1:15pm with introductions, icebreaker activities, and demos.

Body Awareness for Better Sex @ Gallery Erato
Smitty Buckler, the educator for this workshop, has received a wonderful and unexpected educational opportunity this summer, and will sadly have to postpone this class. We are working hard to reschedule for later this summer or fall, so please keep an eye on the calendar or sign up for our newsletter. We should have a new date soon. So sorry for the inconvenience. Best, Pan Eros Education Team     Even if you have body dysmorphia (and/or gender identity disorder), it is possible to attune to your inner energetic channels and enjoy sex more. Even if you have a great relationship with your body, you will still take away from this workshop. We will utilize different movement modalities, including yoga and dance, to explore our bodies in new ways that help increase neuroplasticity and improve interpersonal neurobiology. But no experience is required. Please come as you are – able bodied or disabled by our ableist society; cis, trans and/or some other gender; heterosexual, queer and/or other sexualities are all welcome here. Sex worker(?), you too deserve a chance to love and accept your body and are more than welcome. The instructor has experience with all of these marginalized bodies. Purchase tickets here!   No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time. Water available. Please bring your own cup or bottle. Open to all 18+ All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.
