Not that you are not already having great sex, because I would never assume such things, but like anything else, there is always room for improvement, or at least some fresh perspective. The late 60’s and 70′ saw a sexual awakening, revolutionizing the way society viewed and talked about sex, but has it become so mainstream, so overly sexualized and sensationalized today that it’s lost all meaning?

Whether you are single or in a relationship, let’s be honest, we all want to have great sex, and while it obviously feels good physically, it’s easy to forget just how inherently intertwined our sexuality and emotional well-being really are. Getting physical with someone should be about more than just getting off, but also revitalizing the body and mind.

Sex is primal. It’s powerful. Sex is, dare I say, magical – A fact that is quickly starting to get lost in an age replete with dick pics and instant porn. There is something to be said about deeper emotional connection that makes sex a real source of pleasure, vitality and ecstasy, without the shame, fear or guilt we’re culturally conditioned to associate with it.

Now that I have your attention with the topic of sex, I can tell you where to learn how to have more rewarding sex in Montreal. For the first-time in Canada, the 14th North American ISTA Conference on Sexuality and Consciousness offers a 3-day opportunity to learn about all things sex, sexuality, love and relationships from international leaders and professionals of the industry.

Keynote topics range from: “Building the Field of Love”, “Redefining the Masculine and Feminine For a New Paradigm”, to “Transforming Sexual Shame to Personal Power”, “Sex, Magic, and “Polyamory”.
