Porn company holds sex workshops with live demos
More bang for your buck?
Are you a visual learner? Then perhaps you'll appreciate this.
Kink.com, a San Francisco-based pornography company, is offering sexual education classes that include live demonstrations with porn stars.
With the goal of "empowering people to explore their sexuality," the workshops offer everything from "bedroom bondage" to "fetish and fellatio."

The classes are being held in San Francisco’s historic Armory building, which the company purchased in 2006. Rain DeGrey, a porn star-turned-instructor, explains the general syllabus of each class:
"They have to sit through a lecture before we get to the good stuff. We do techniques, physical response and have a question-and-answer period before moving on to the demonstrations."

The Dec. 22 class is titled, "Remedial Ropes: Bedroom Bondage w/Stefanos and Shay." The workshop description explains:
"This is the perfect class for you if your bondage skills begin and end with tying your shoes."
Kink.com's Sexuality Workshop Series boasts that it's on a mission to "demystify and celebrate alternative sexualities."
If the classes sound alienating, you might be surprised to know that some of them have already sold out. Mike Stabile, a spokesman for Kink, told The Huffington Post:
"The workshop series helps us educate people who are interested in exploring their sexuality, but may not know where to start. We bring in experts and create a safe space for people to learn, ask questions and talk about sex frankly and without judgment."
DeGrey says the workshop attendees vary in demographic:
"They're young and old, married and single, men and women, gay and straight," she said. "We get a lot of people who are newbies, who are really curious about the scene."
What do you think of these workshops? Could they be valuable, or are they just plain vulgar?
