Enhanced With Age: The Golden Years of Sex | with Vincent James Mauro (a sex therapist in training)
Just like wine, sex too gets better with age!
(However, also like wine, some people just don't know how to serve it properly)
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée Conti Grand Cru is red wine that cost tens of thousands of dollars, you wouldn't put it in a red solo cup and pair it with Netflix and pizza would you? So why let your sophisticated and experienced sense of sexuality and sensual enjoyment lie dormant?
Sex may require different preparations and attitudes then before, but even with physical challenges, sexual enjoyment is possible if you have an open mind.
Join us to learn some new and exciting tricks to revamp or add to your sex life.
If you have any questions or topics you'd like covered, please email them to Vincent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4th Tuesday Open House | Tues., April 23rd, 11:30am-1pm | Lunch provided
