The New Sex Ed
"If you're brazen enough for striptease, you're definitely suited for something a little naughtier. Besides being a hotpost for all things G-spot, adult toy store Good Vibrations (308-A Harvard Street, Brookline, 6.17.264.4400; www.goodvibes.com) can rock your workld with its roster of how-to classes. Sex educators, therapists, and good-time gurus serve as instructors for seminars such as "Getting the Sex You Want (and Not the Sex You Don't)", "Doing It Right: Sex Tips for Howw to Please a Woman," and "Intro to Spanking." Shy types may be helped by a flirting workshop taught by psychotherapist Elena Pellegrino; the more adventurous should find classes from certified sex educator Megan Andelloux incredibly stimulating."I am not a lecture girl; things are interactive," says Andelloux, who instructs on everything fromtop to -- ahem -- bottom. "I try to incorporate all different learning styles. No matter where I go, no matter where I teach, people still ask the same questions. There is a huge disconnect between the worlds of medical sexuality and pleasure sexuality. My classes marry the two."
The classes at Good Vibrations are fantastic for either individuals or couples who want to pick up some tricks, and though many are about what's going on below the belt, be not afraid: you're not walking into an episode of Real Sex or onto the set of a porno. The classes are, well, classy. And come on -- besides the Internet, where else can you learn about "Aromatherapy for Romance" or "Back Door Lovin'"? Sitting home along and surfing for sex tips is no fun, kittens. Good Vibrations educational director Charlie Glickman is constantly introducing new classes into the rotation, so you'll never be bored. (Though with topics like these, how could you be?) Check out the store's Web site for schedules; most classes are $10 to $25, and many of the instructors are available for private instruction for you wallflowers.
