Workshops & Events

Workshop Information
Most of our events are open to everybody. However, some are designated for particular groups. If an event description says "women only" or "men only," anyone who identifies with that gender is welcome to attend. Events for couples do not require you to be romantic or sexual partners, but you do need to attend as a pair. So if you have a close friend you want to come with, feel free!

For paid workshops, pre-registration is required. Some of our classes fill up quickly and pre-registration will guarantee your seat as well as let the presenter know how many attendees to expect.

You can click the link in the workshop description or call us at 415-345-0400 to register. We are unable to honor refunds unless you give us up to 48 hours notice that you are unable to attend. Some of our presenters come from out of town and we need to guarantee fees.

Every attendee at a Good Vibrations class or special event will be eligible to win in a special Good Vibrations gift card giveaway! Hear more details at the event you attend.

The history of the vibrator is a fascinating one, and Good Vibrations gladly sheds light on the unlikely origins of its industry. The electric vibrator had its inception in 1869 with the invention of a steam-powered massager, patented by an American doctor. This device was designed as a medical tool for treating what was called "hysteria," or "female disorders." Within 20 years a British doctor followed up with a more portable battery-operated model; by 1900, dozens of styles of electric vibrators, just like those in our exhibit, were available to the discriminating medical professional.

Please Note: The Antique Vibrator Museum is part of Good Vibrations, and it may be closed from time to time to accommodate classes, book signings, special parties, and staff trainings, as well as private tours and press events focused on the museum itself. If you wish to visit the museum, please phone us to confirm that none of these occasional closures will affect your enjoyment of the antique vibrator collection when you come by to view it. Thank you for your understanding!

Sometimes we feel disconnected from the experience of pleasure. Sometimes life gets in the way of us experiencing the deepest forms of pleasure. What is holding you back from experiencing pleasure and desire in your daily life? How can you rekindle flames of desire that might be smothered right now? What are the things that make you feel most alive? How can you work to bring those aspects of your life into greater alignment with how you live on a day-to-day basis? Water, and therefore, flow, lives in the second chakra, the home of our sexuality, our sensual selves, our desire. When we get stuck in our attachments, we dam the flow of pleasure in our lives. In this workshop with Sexual Empowerment expert and Woman On Fire author Amy Jo Goddard we will use movement, meditation, reflection and group exercises to “unstuck” ourselves, create clarity about how to churn the butters of deliciousness in our lives, and open the second chakra to embrace pleasure and desire in a new way.

In times of terror, sexuality and desire can seem frivolous. At these times, it can feel safer to close rather than to open. Audre Lorde warned us of the dangers of "fear[ing] the yes within ourselves." When we claim our messy, gorgeous erotic selves, we are more able to recognize joy in our lives, connect to community, and are less likely to fall prey to the politics of fear and division. In this workshop with Jen Cross we'll write fantasy and longing, body and hope, and co-create space in which to celebrate the power of desire in resisting cynicism and despair. This is a space for folks of all genders and all orientations, single or partnered, and open to folks of all writing abilities! Just bring your favorite notebook and writing implement, and your most open mind.

A widely-anthologized erotica writer and co-editor (with Dr. Carol Queen and Amy Butcher), of the award-winning Sex Still Spoken Here: An Erotic Reading Circle Anthology, Jen Cross has also been facilitating erotic writing workshops for 15 years. Her first single-author book, Writing Ourselves Whole: Using the Power of your Own Creativity to Heal and Recover from Sexual Violence, is forthcoming from Mango Media this summer. www.writingourselveswhole.org.
