Valentine's Day 2024 with CMA
Activities from February 11–18

The Art and Science of Sexual Attraction

February 15, 7:00–8:45 PM

Spice up your Valentine’s Day with a deep dive into the non-verbal ways we communicate and interpret sexual desire in our relationships. Bring curiosity and an open mind as we explore this phenomenon through an interactive gallery experience followed by a workshop led by Dr. Meghna Mahambrey, founder of SPARK Relationship + Sexual Wellness. Couples of all gender and sexual identities are warmly welcome.

Topics for the workshop will include:

• Reflection on verbal and non-verbal ways we directly communicate sexual attraction to our partners.

• Discovering verbal and non-verbal ways we subtly express sexual attraction to our partners, whether intentional or not.

• Exploring potential misunderstandings and blind spots that can result from ambiguous flirtations.

• Brainstorming creative ways to harness this information and show up more comfortably and confidently in our romantic relationships.

Tickets are $80 for member couples and $90 for nonmember couples. Registration also includes general admission to CMA galleries, a glass of wine, and sweet treat for each registrant.
