Sexuality & Relationships Educator Brain Trust

February 13, 2018 – 7 PM Central Time (US) – Workshopping Your Workshop – Ways to refine new classes & build confidence

We can run our presentations through at home, in front of a mirror, for hours on end – but it doesn’t actually prepare us for delivering our material in front of learners! Let’s talk about how we can prep for our workshops, both informally (through conversations & short presentations) and formally (in front of friends, peers, and learners, too!). We’ll cover outlining the “evolution” of the workshop, delivery methods, and using feedback & “lessons learned” to bring our workshops into alignment with our goals. (You can register here!)

March 13, 2018 – 7 PM Central Time (US) – Working the ‘Net – How to network your skills & find learning communities

“I have a great class – but where can I teach it?” Sound familiar? Probably so! Many educators – of all experience levels – are challenged when it comes to finding people to teach, and places to offer their classes; generally, people figure it out through a combination of trial & error and sheer bullheaded persistence. Want to skip over some of that chaos? We’ll talk about ways to connect with potential students and connect with venues, working collaboratively with other educators to build our opportunities, and thinking outside of the box to come up with fun ways to share our knowledge with other!


Group Coaching (offered through Plot Twist Coaching

February 21: “Ditch the Cant’s & Should’s” – Challenging the blocks that hold us back from success

How often do we think to ourselves  “Oh, I can’t do that” or “I shouldn’t even try”? As much as we’d like to point to outside factors that keep us from moving forward or succeeding, the reality for many of us is that the internal struggle with our own fears and worries is at the core of our lack of movement. In this month’s coaching session, we’ll talk about the things that we feel hold us back, why they are actually potential stepping stones for our growth – and we’ll even use some fresh tools to help us dismantle the “yeah, but…” voice in our heads.
Group coaching sessions offer both dial-in and video conference access, have a very limited number of spots, and include post-class worksheets, exercises & a recording of each session that is available only to participants. Additionally, attendees who choose to join next month’s call will get the Early Bird special – a 30 minute follow up session just prior to the main call time, to let you check in, ask questions, and share your wins with each other!

March 21 – 7 PM Central Time – “Trigger Unhappy” – Mindfulness techniques to understand – and recover from – the moments that take us down

(For more information & to join a group coaching session, please visit my Group Coaching page at Plot Twist Coaching!)

Just wanted to say thank you for your beginner’s class on poly. I think sometimes people feel they ‘know’ the basics w/o ever having ever actually gone to a class on it. IMO they miss out on a lot of great fundamental ideas ???? Personally, I found it very informative and helpful in more clearly defining my own ideas on poly.

– Poly Class Participant

Thanks for the informative advice on where to spank women properly.  Wonderful work on the presentations, and thanks for helping me test out my new paddle!

– Rough Body Play Event Participant

Excellent presentation – the presenter was informative, engaging, warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable. Great! Learned a lot.

The presenter was fantastic – very good at mixing personal info / experience with generalized info / experience.

I attended your fisting seminar at the Beyond Leather event, and i just had to thank you for a very entertaining and informative seminar. I even had an opportunity last night to share some of what i learned. So thank you.

– Fisting Class Participant

For myself as a mental health professional, this was a complete paradigm shift for me!

–  Beyond the Boxes Attendee

Hi Sarah, I was in your class about how to meet people at conventions. As you already know because we chatted briefly, I took your advice and it worked. I had wanted to ask this person to play with me and [my partner] but I was afraid of rejection. Thank you for taking that fear away from me. After all, if someone isn’t interested, the world wont end :-). Thank you for giving me confidence. Now, we have a new play partner. 

– Convention Class Participant

It was wonderful meeting you yesterday. Thank you for sharing you experience and wisdom with all of us. I now believe in Santa Claus, but have tangible evidence that I have a G-Spot ([my partner] and I went on a hunting expedition the other night and were victorious in our quest). So…I say again, “THANK YOU!!” 

– G Spot Class Participant

Sarah is a really great presenter. The workshop participants gave her excellent reviews and got a lot out of the class. Plus, she’s very easy to work with.

There are a few reasons we’ve continued to bring Sarah back:

First, she’s just a fabulous educator. She’s always eager to teach on what –we- feel is important, and while she is a ‘rock star’ in the world of kink, there is NO rock star personality there. Her classes are always well prepared, well attended, and well regarded. She’s also very visible when not teaching, working with new folks who had questions, old folks who had questions, and every one in between.

The second is equally as important to me, and it’s her ability to dive in and help wherever her assistance might be needed. She jumps in capably when help is needed and that can be golden.

I’d highly recommend her, and not just because she’s cute.

Very knowledgeable & professional presentation of difficult & controversial subject matter.

Sarah did a terrific job – very smooth, information-dense, accessible/friendly.

–  Co-Presenter

Working with Ms. Sloane was fantastic. She was engaging and funny, while still very effective at conveying important information, such as the precise chemicals in lubricants and how they can interact with sex toys and each other. Too often presenters sacrifice content for the sake of appealing to their audience and seeming humorous, but Sarah Sloane was able to strike a balance between extremes. Her experience, both personally and professionally, really seems to enrich her presentations, and her focus on personal empowerment (regardless of workshop topic) makes her presentations very positive and enriching. On the organizational side, she was very easy to work with, and was very available when it came to discussing arrangements for her visit and presentation.

When I need an educator who is reliable, humorous, and consistently packs a classroom, I turn to Sarah Sloane.   Her down-to earth nature is really appealing to my attendees, and her teaching style holds the interest of both the new and seasoned practitioner.  As an event organizer, I find her delightfully easy to work with.  Sarah always goes the extra mile to make sure that the event is a success, and it shows in the end result.

–  Event Organizer

We’ve been poly and kinky for years and consider ourselves well informed and experienced, but we still learned much from Sarah’s presentations.  She is clear, entertaining and well informed with the latest information.  Thank you Sarah!
