A TurnOn is an event in which facilitators lead the group through 3 communication games designed to help participants bridge the gap between mindfulness and sexuality, have greater intimacy and connection in their lives, and open to a deeper sexuality.
You play at whatever level feels comfortable to you. You don't have to do anything you don't want to, or answer any questions you don't want to answer. You'll have fun. You'll get real. It's the bomb.
TurnOn is the introductory event created by OneTaste, the sexual wellness organization leading the Slow Sex Movement, as seen in the New York Times.
Come with an open mind and open heart. What comes up might surprise you! Let's turn on!
Regular admission is $20 per person. Valentine's Day special can only be purchased online and is not available at the door.
Valid for entrance to the museum on Thursday, February 14th. Museum hours on Thursdays are 11am - 10pm. Last entry 1 hour before closing.

Come discover your new favorite yoga class. This movement workshop, taught by sexologist and yoga instructor Sonjia Kenya, combines aspects of yoga and chakra-awakening strategies to provide a sacred, safe place where learners are guided through postures and techniques that encourage connecting with their inner sensual self.

Tea & Sex: Masculinity In Crisis?
Wednesday, February 20th
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Tea & Sex is a roundtable discussion in which participants can explore a variety of topics related to human sexuality. This month, we explore evolving masculinity, toxic masculinity, and the response to Gilette's "We Believe" ad encouraging men to become better men.
According to Jack Myers, author of "The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty-First Century," young men are angry, discouraged, and struggle with the shift away from the "thousands of years of history that defined what it meant to be a real man: to be strong; to be a provider; to be in authority; to be the ultimate decision maker; and to be economically, educationally, physically and politically dominant."
Does he have a point? A relatively short time ago, a man could buy a house, a car, and support his wife and children on his salary alone. With the current economic landscape, this is no longer a reality. Now, forty percent of families' primary breadwinner are women. Additionally, women are outpacing men in terms of educational achievement, as women are earning 60% of higher education degrees.
Myers believes that we need to create a new model of masculinity, and proposes that in order to do so we as a society need to be more supportive of paternity leave, stay-at-home dads, and men entering traditionally “feminine” careers. We also need media portrayals of men as responsible, competent, and caring husbands and fathers, instead of men as idiots, misogynists, or guys who lack commitment in relationships.
So, is masculinity in crisis? What does it mean to be a "real man?" Do we need a collective reimagining of masculinity? If so, what should it look like? What do men need in order to feel good about themselves? Is part of the problem that men have always defined themselves in relation to women, instead of independent of them? This and more will be discussed. Come join us!
