Emily Nagoski – How To Create Lasting Sexual Connections

Live in Conversation in London

Join one of the world’s leading voices in sexual wellness, Emily Nagoski, for her long-awaited return to How To Academy and to the subject of her New York Times bestseller Come As You Are.

‘Emily Nagoski is a national treasure – helping us all understand how to finally build true, joyful, confident sex lives.’ – Glennon Doyle

It’s been almost ten years since Emily Nagoski, a Kinsey-educated sex educator, wrote Come As You Are, the New York Times bestseller Ian Kerner calls “a masterclass in the science of sex.” Based on revolutionary new research about women’s sexuality, readers were thirsty to learn the secrets of a joy-filled sex life, and welcomed a feminist sex educator with a relatable, curious, shame-free approach.

Plot twist: Soon after that book’s success, Emily Nagoski was a sex educator/bestselling-author whose sex life evaporated. She joins us live on stage in conversation with therapist Dr Sara Nasserzadeh to tell us what she did about it. Using her own story of sexual disconnection and reconnection as a jumping off point, she will address the number one topic people ask her about: desire.

Most of us struggle at some point to maintain a sexual connection with our partner/s or spouse. And many of us are given not-very-good advice on what to do about it – or advice that may work for some but backfires for many, leaving us feeling a bit broken. In this live, In Conversation event Emily and Sara will show us that a good sex life is not determined by the outside world, but is co-created within a relationship. They will share how to overcome the obstacles, both cultural and physiological, between us and the pleasure our bodies are capable of.
