Blurbage: Annie Sprinkle traveled the world to learn new and ancient lovemaking techniques. Now she wants to share with you her favorite of all the techniques she learned—“ecstasy breathing” (based on the Fire Breath Orgasm). It’s a sexual healing session, a chakra enema, and a mind expanding shamanic journey all rolled into one yummy pleasurable experience. This sexual healing technique can enhance your sex life.  We will also discuss “energy orgasms”, and explore ways to have them. Annie will also show her film, Amazing World of Orgasm.

Dress in loose comfortable clothing (which stays on). Bring a soft mat or a blanket to lay on as you’ll be doing some breathing. This workshop is for anyone interested in the art of making love—alone or with a partner(s). Great for pre-orgasmic women/transsexuals and celibates too! Annie creates a safe, supportive, gentle atmosphere.  For beginners to advanced, everyone welcome.

This is a 4 ½ hour class, with a one hour film screening of my movie Amazing World of Orgasm. 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM. ENROLL IN THIS CLASS

MOSEX Manhattan, NY

 Five adult film stars from the “Golden Age of Porn”: Veronica Hart, Gloria Leonard, Candida Royalle, Veronica Vera and Annie Sprinkle were the original "Sex and the City" girls. Turning to one another for the support they needed to navigate their way through life in blue movies, these dynamic women created “Club 90” in 1983, forming a bond that would continue for thirty years. They went on to pursue their personal goals, and in the process, blazed new trails in the fields of human sexuality, women’s empowerment, erotic expression, and free speech. Come get a taste of the good old days when NYC was America’s sex film capital, movies were shot on 35mm film, and Times Square was x-rated! Most of all come share the laughs, the drama and the intimate stories of this controversial support group. This rare reunion promises to be candid, informative and electric! Sponsored with Distribpix Inc./Video-X-Pix, Feminists For Free Expression, and Lisa Vandever’s CineKink.
