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.  ​

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.

We will not be holding a staycation event this year.

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.

Getting Out of a Rut, Guest blog by Adam and Eve

It’s perfectly normal throughout a long-term relationship to find yourself in somewhat of a sexual rut. After getting to know one another’s bodies, all of your likes and dislikes, it can be easy to fall into a routine in bed. Luckily, this problem is one that’s actually fun to fix. Spicing up your sex life will not only rejuvenate you and your partner’s sex drive, but it will leave you feeling more sexually satisfied and allow the two of you to be closer than ever.
