You can be an incredibly romantic lover and partner, even if hearts and roses make you gag and you think you have the sentimentality of a rock. The truth is that real romance exists in as many forms as there are people who want to experience it—and the secret is that it’s extremely important to most of us in our intimate relationships. But can it be learned?

You’re in luck if romantic gestures are something you struggle with: YES, you can absolutely learn to be more romantic! Join sex and relationship educator Rebecca Rose Vassy for a workshop that will challenge your assumptions about what it means to be romantic and show you why it’s such a vital skill for anyone who wants a truly deep, meaningful connection with their partner(s).

Relationship Champ: Up Your Game as a Romantic Partner
Online Event
Thursday, September 15, 2022 from 7 PM – 9 PM
$40 (sliding scale available)

Being in a long-term relationship (married or not) can be HARD. Worse, no one ever really teaches us how to do it—we had to either hope we had good role models growing up, or we had to go looking for resources, and otherwise we just stumble through and do our best. Make up for lost time now by learning skills that will help you build and nurture partnerships that are fulfilling, deep, and based on friendship and joy.

Sex and relationship educator Rebecca Rose Vassy leads you through a series of interactive and reflective experiences in this workshop that will help you take an inventory of your strengths and weaknesses as a partner. From there, you’ll learn skills that will help you be a confident, reliable, and desirable partner.

Even if you feel like you have the conversational equivalent of two left feet, you can learn to start and carry on a conversation with just about anyone, anytime, anywhere.

This workshop is led by sex and relationship educator Rebecca Rose Vassy, who in her role as a popular local emcee and event host has built the skills to navigate even large and crowded rooms full of strangers with ease. She’ll share her strategies and techniques for talking to just about anyone.

Book Tamara to speak

Polyamory is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate partner.

As a certified sex therapist and psychotherapist, who has also made her own journey through the sexual exploration and acceptance, I am able to bring a unique perspective…

For a lay audience, I have offered classes called “Ask the Sex Therapist” where people can find out what they need to know about sexual functioning, BDSM, Sexual Orientation gender identity and ethical non-monogamy.

I have spoken at such events as the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit, AASECT, Greater Washington Society for Clinical Social Work, SSSS, Catalyst Con, Lotus Blooms and the University of Maryland

In the past I have given talks on: How to be a poly friendly therapist Ethics in psychotherapy
