Sensuality Class – Week 1 – Part 1

As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, The Welcomed Consensus asked me to participate in their six-week online sensuality course, and review it here.  I’m quite honored to have such an opportunity, and am thrilled to be able to share my experiences with you.  I’ll write several posts in the next few weeks on the class, and here’s the first!

 

This class is constructed in a very similar way to other online classes I’ve taken.  There’s a conference call for instruction, but the call is recorded, so if you’re unable to attend the scheduled time, you’ll still be able to get the information.  Exercises and assignments are delivered online.  Discussion boards offer places to share thoughts and ask questions, and I’m sure that over the six-week course, the students will also get to know one another and develop friendships.

Upon first glance, it seems as though The Welcomed Consensus works diligently to ensure the utmost comfort and respect of their students, which is fantastic, considering the broad range of comfort levels each person has with her/his own sensuality.  The fact that the course is offered online means that students have an even higher sense of privacy, can study at home, and are allowed a certain anonymity, which may foster the desire to break down some walls that a live class wouldn’t necessarily allow so easily.

The teleconference model of delivering lecture materials allows for students to ask questions, gain clarification, and participate in discussion, and since it’s recorded, students can go back and re-listen to the lectures.  Bonus!  Expansion of comprehension with the ability to maintain that comprehension via repetition is one of the most positive aspects to online classes, and I love it!  Students can listen again and again to re-hear something they may not completely understand at first, or go over an activity then re-listen to the corresponding section of the lecture to ensure they’re on track.  It’s wonderful!

One of the things I love, right off the bat, about this course is that the instructor, Susan, explicitly states that the course is “descriptive, not prescriptive,” meaning that they don’t pretend to be able to fix your sex life, they don’t claim to be able to tell you exactly what to do to increase the sensuality in your life, and they don’t put on a one-size-fits-all charade.  The course, so far, seems to be more about guided self-exploration and discovery, allowing students to come to their own conclusions that fit into their individual lives.  To quote the lecture, “We’re going to approach the study of sensuality by combining intellectual understanding with suggestions for actual techniques and exercises, because if you have these concepts, then you can go home and do them.”  Simple concept.  Complicated actualization.  Mad props to The Welcomed Consensus for tackling such a feat!

Rather than being focused on any sort of dysfunction, and taking their students from the idea that something is wrong to “normal,” they focus on the mentality that wherever you are in your sensual exploration is “good” and through the course, you can get to “better.”  It sounds a lot like the ever-so-difficult-for-perfectionists-but-much-more-fulfilling life model of striving for progress, rather than perfection.  (Although by their definition, there’s nothing wrong with any of us.  We’re all already perfect.)  Awesome!

About kelijackson

We’ve been taught for so long that our bodies are sinful. “Down there” is dirty. Sexual conversation is whispered, if discussed at all. Questions go unanswered. Negative perceptions remain uncorrected. Misconceptions run wild in the minds of women, men couples in our culture. That’s where we come in! We’re here to help shed the lies you’ve heard and grown to believe about your body, your sensuality, your sexuality, and intimacy within two of your most precious relationships: that with your partner, and perhaps more importantly, that with yourself. “We?” That’s right! I lead an international team of Passion Consultants called The Orgasm Factory. We are a movement of women, joining forces to help enhance the intimacy in those precious relationships all across the US and Canada. Do yourself a favor and ask yourself these questions: What would you do with an extra $1,000 a month? What if you could earn that extra $1,000 each month working an average of just one evening each week? What if that work consisted of having a blast, partying with other women, and helping to enhance their intimacy? What if, within your network of co-workers, you felt supported, encouraged, and were recognized for your accomplishments? What if you partnered with a company that rewarded you with BONUS CASH, luxury vacations, a company-paid car, and a ton of other prizes? What if your part-time job (or new career) consisted of making new friends and helping them to reach their goals and make their dreams come true? That’s what I do! That’s what I help my team to do! And you can join our team! I’ll personally train you, you’ll get training and support from our team, and you’ll have access to the incredible training opportunities Passion Parties Corporate provides for us! (I’ve had two training sessions with Dr. Drew! Corporate offers us the absolute BEST training imaginable!) So, CALL ME! (No. Seriously. Call me. You DEFINITELY want in on this.) I’ll help you get started, and I’ll be there for you every step of the way. I’ll have faith in you until you have faith in yourself. If you’re not sure, that’s ok. We can talk about it. I’ll answer all of your questions and give you all the information you want. If, after that, you’re still not sure, book a party and get all of the fabulous Hostess Rewards we offer, just for getting a few friends together and letting me or one of my team members show you what we’re all about! You’ll not only receive the benefits of being one of our hostesses, you’ll also have the opportunity to look at the business from inside the party. Then, we’ll talk again and see if it’s a good fit! Our mothers and grandmothers didn’t necessarily teach us everything we need to know about sex, and we certainly didn’t learn enough in school. When you host your own Passion Party, one of my team members or I will teach you and your friends how to discover the joy of enhancing the intimacy in those precious relationships! We’ll show you some of our absolute best products, from the mild to the wild, and help you find exactly what you need the most. All consultations are confidential, to ensure that everyone is comfortable. Your secrets will remain your secrets. You’ll laugh! You’ll learn! You’ll have a one-of-a-kind shopportunity to bring Passion to life! View all posts by kelijackson

      Thank you so much! It’s a pretty interesting course, so far, and I anticipate it getting more intense as the six weeks go on. Hopefully, by sharing my experiences, others will be encouraged to participate in this class, or something similar, and expand their understanding of themselves and their own sensuality!
