Ethereal Embrace July 9th at 9pm

Ethereal Embrace invites you to explore intimacy and connection without a physical focus.

Who: CSPC Members and Invited Guests Only
Cost: Member Price: $15, Guest Price: $25
When: Every 3 months on the 2nd Thursday, 9pm – 12:30am
Where: Main Space

Ethereal Embrace invites you to step outside the box, share your mind and emotions with another, and explore ways to cultivate intimacy that aren’t physically focused. In particular, we challenge you to set aside sex, physical pain, and cuddles for an evening, experimenting instead with other ways to develop and express closeness with another person. Whether that’s sharing a dream with a stranger, or being forbidden to speak on a leash by your Master’s side – or anything in between – we’d love to see what connects your minds and hearts, when you’re not connecting your bodies.

Welcome new Facility Manager, Atom Kahn

We’d like to introduce everyone to our new Facility Manager, Atom Kahn. Everyone, Atom. Atom, everyone. Many of you may already know Atom, as he’s been in Seattle for nearly 10 years and a member of the CSPC the entire time. He actually moved to Seattle because of the marvelous sex-positive vibe we’ve got at the Center, which he could​​​​n’t help but notice while exhibiting his art in SEAF in 2006.

Since moving to Seattle and joining the Center, Atom has volunteered his time at the Center off and on over the years, doing whatever needed doing. Now he is happy to be able to bring his specific skills and experience to serve the facility and membership of the CSPC in an even bigger way. He’ll be around the center a lot from now on, and he welcomes you to take advantage of his open-door attitude and either drop by or email to say hello, coordinate your event or repair, or ask him what he’s working on to submit to SEAF next year!

The Facility Manager is responsible for maintaining the physical building and grounds, overseeing upkeep of equipment, ordering and stocking supplies, and coordinating and supervising special projects around the site. It takes a lot of effort to make sure that the space is ready for events, but we’re confident that Atom is up to the task!

As always, if you have comments or notice something that needs repair or restocking, please email Facilities@theCSPC.org or Building@theCSPC.org.  ​

17371259522_a00ef83e3f_b16752735183_d7fd2e01e5_bSexploration is coming up July 11 and 12 and this year it is two full days of workshops, experiments, and opportunities!

Sexploration is a weekend adventure held annually in July featuring 13 workshops, a party each night, a “Kink Laboratory” for experimentation, and numerous social opportunities to meet and mingle with other like-minded explorers.

Discover All Day, Play All Night – Spend Saturday or the whole weekend choosing among 3 carefully crafted educational tracks. Discussions, demonstrations and hands-on sessions will be followed by sexy play parties where you can put your new skills into practice.

Joining the Center? 

As a way to celebrate the expansion of this amazing event, we are offering a special ticket for two for the whole weekend plus your first year of membership dues to the CSPC for $245. This is a $35 savings compared to purchasing 2 single tickets, on top of the 50% discount on the dues when you become a CSPC member at Sexploration!

Can’t spend the whole weekend with us? You can purchase a Saturday-only ticket and still take advantage of nine workshops, the Kinky Laboratory, and a “play” party to practice your new skills.

Already a CSPC member?

We have specially priced tickets for you, too! You can look through the pricing and detailed information about the event here. Tickets can be purchased online via StrangerTickets.com or in person during open Library hours.

Cancelled: Paradise

Due to some unfortunate circumstances Paradise 2015 will not be happening this year. At this moment, we are exploring options for 2016 and plan on having a great event next year.

Have you already scheduled your vacation or were planning to be in Seattle for Paradise this year?  While we are sad to not be offering our kinky campout for 2015, we still plan to offer an exciting event that week.  August 4th-9th mark your calendars for a Kinky and Sexy themed Staycation at the CSPC.  Stay tuned for event details.

Jean Franzblau

Jean Franzblau and I met at Sex Geek Summer Camp last summer. (You can check out a camp pic here.) I had the pleasure of interviewing her about her vist to Seattle next weekend to perform her show and present a workshop for The Foundation for Sex Postive Culture. I hope you enjoy it and I’d love to see you at the show. ~~Celia

I know we met in a very special situation. Let me just ask this, what’s your favorite way to be introduced?

Jean: My background is corporate training. Things changed radically for me a couple of years ago when I was feeling disappointed and broken about my sexuality. I began putting my full attention to reclaiming and healing this beautiful part of life. My name is Jean Franzblau, I am a coach and workshop leader. My company is Sexual Esteem with Jean.
