While transgender rights are making huge strides globally at present, most sexual health and pleasure resources for adults still reference “male” and “female” sexuality in ways that link genitals with gender experience. Transgender men, women, and non-binary individuals–as well as our partners–are often left out of sexuality workshops, in part because educators aren’t sure how to best address our needs without alienating a general audience.

Over the course of the past three years, recently transitioned sex educator Alex S. Morgan has treated North America as their lab, testing different approaches, terminology, and methods of increasing accessibility for trans, non-binary, and questioning seekers of adult sex education (as well as their partners).

In a society that often does its best to divorce trans people from their bodies and reinforces the message that trans people are unworthy of love, treating trans bodies as real and desirable, and trans pleasure as important and worth discussing, is a revolutionary act. From best practices in choosing inclusive language to adapting exercises to reduce the odds of triggering dysphoria, Alex will share what’s worked across North America.
