About the Event
Everyone has experienced having a “noisy brain” during sex at one point or another, and for some, it’s a constant challenge, especially for those who have ADHD or anxiety. For some people staying in the moment during sex isn’t as simple as just trying harder to focus, and the usual suggestions of mindfulness and meditation don’t work for everyone. We spend most of our days working on our ability to multitask, and when we can’t turn that off during sex we consider it a problem at best and a personal failure at worst. This presentation will cover a bit about how ADHD, anxious, and noisy brains work and how they can impact sex.
We’ll discuss some specific challenges noisy brains can pose during sex and, most importantly, practical tips for having great sex no matter how noisy your brain is. Audience interaction will also be encouraged, but not required, through an open discussion of what participants often find distracting during sex, what other tips and tricks work for them, and an opportunity to ask questions.
