Knowing and Negotiating Your Boundaries as a Sex-Positive Professional

Taught by Reid Mihalko.

You can’t count on your clients and students to know their needs and boundaries. Learn to master setting the tone!

For those of us who consider ourselves sex-positive professionals, especially those of us who lead workshops or teach one-on-one session work, part of our job is role modeling great boundary setting, skillful negotiation, and compassionate communication with our participants.

For those of us whose “work” falls outside the box of convention and culturally approved vocations, it can be hard for us to figure out what our professional (and personal) boundaries might be. And for those of us whose activism and calling have us pushing the envelope of sex and intimacy, exploring where no one has gone before, sometimes we don’t know what our boundaries are until they’ve been crossed.

No matter what your line of work or offerings are, if you don’t know what works for you, how to communicate that well, and how to handle your own emotions, you could be in for some major trouble…

If you haven’t a clue what your boundaries are, if you “kinda know ‘em” but could use some more clarity, or if you know them but don’t know how to put them into words, the good news is: There are ways to figure all this out and hone your communication skills compasionately!
