Presented by AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, Rhiannon Beauregard, MA, LMFT-S, CST, S-PSB in conjunction with Synthetic Surrogates, purveyors of sex therapy companion dolls.

When the average person thinks of a sex doll, what images come to mind? Seedy, lonely men; pornography; socially inept individuals incapable of having a relationship? Allow us to change your mind by presenting on how life size sex dolls can be VERY significant and safe companions for developing intimacy and enhancing pleasure. We will walk you through this innovative sexual health tool that will change the way you think about sex dolls and the people who benefit from them.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: name three instances of stigma or myths that exist around life size sex dolls; describe three ways individuals and relationships can develop intimacy and enhance pleasure with a sex doll; discriminate whether a life size sex doll would be a good tool to have in their work with their clients and why.
