Common Sex Taboos within a Mormon Marriage

Ticket Information

Registration per person: $35

Event Details

Natasha Helfer Parker, LCMFT and Alisha Worthington will broach common taboo sexual topics many LDS couples do not know how to discuss or bring up within their relationships.  There are many sexual messages found within the doctrine, culture and overall framework of Mormonism.  Although Mormonism offers a generally pro-sex stance often not found in religious traditions, many factors have gotten in the way of appropriate, normalizing and evidence-based sexual education within Mormon circles.  This presentation will focus on sexual topics that are either commonly interpreted in unhealthy ways or hold taboo status within many Mormon marriages due to the LDS sexual construct they find themselves in.  Subjects such as libido differences, oral sex, pornography, and body image will be addressed.  Both Natasha and Alisha have worked extensively with Mormon couples around issues of sexuality, intimacy, communication and education.

Due to logistics with the library, payments will not be able to be collected at the event.  Therefore, pre-registration is mandatory for attendance.  Number of seats are limited – so please make sure and register promptly if you’d like to guarantee your ability to attend.
