Taormino to Talk at Smitten Kitten

MINNEAPOLIS — Author/director/lecturer Tristan Taormino will return to the Smitten Kitten in Minneapolis next week to conduct a workshop, "Anal Pleasure 201." The workshop is a followup to last June's "Anal Sex 101."

The workshop will further delve into the world of anal play, looking at penetration techniques, positions, toys, and safer-sex practices. The workshop is part of an extended schedule of workshops that the Smitten Kitten has hosted this fall, including topics such as Masturbation for Couples and Trans Health and Sexuality.

Taormino is the author of "The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women," and executive producer of the Vivid-Ed line of instructional DVDs. Her website is PuckerUp.com.
