Would You attend these if Eden Held them?

I was thinking about how much I really DON'T know (lol) and how awesome it would be to have Eden host some sort of "Seminar" or class/workshop for the community on a few things. I posted these thoughts to the community planning thread, so I am hoping that they take these things into consideration. However, I wanted to see just how many of you would be also interested in attending some of these, or if I am just weird (lol). Since being on Edenfantasys, I have learned so much and theres so many things that I see on the site, everyday, that I feel like I just HAVE to learn more about. Of course, I could always just go google these things, but I think it would be MUCH more fun to have some sort of workshop where we could all converse and throw out different questions/answers and really get into a discussion about these things. Someone else may have a question/concern about this stuff that you didn't think about, You never know! So, I have listed a few topics that I think would make for great workshops. Let me know what you think about this idea (or if Eden already does this sort of thing-Im still new to the workshop thing and I've only seen stuff that pertains to how to navigate/work the site etc).
Answers (private voting - your screen name will NOT appear in the results):
"Gender Association" (Explination of what it means to be Ciswoman/Trans/Gay/etc)
10
"Fetish 101" (Explination of different fetishes, How to choose products for you, Is this the fetish for you, etc) Each class would focus on one fetish at a time.

Other? Post below if you can think of anything

That'd be really cool! I think I'd be too embarrassed to attend anything, but still xD

Even though the specific ideas you listed do not apply to me, I love the general idea of workshops. There's always something to learn.

I would attend them, for not only the information but also to meet the community.

I love this idea too, I really hope that they implement this idea. I really want to learn more about the different genders and "types" of sexual preferences. I think that these workshops would definitely help us to write better reviews too! If you know more about certain genders or "preferences", then you can add that info into your reviews saying stuff like "Such and Such so and so could really benefit from this or it could be used as this and this for this sort of situation". So if we are more in tune and knowledgeable of others and their situations, we can suggest it for them. I think these would really help improve our reviews too Even if you're not interested in perusing that sort of fetish or lifestyle.

If you guys like this idea, please make sure to go to the "Community Planning thread" and let EF know. I posted it on there and if you respond to my post, telling them that this is something you'd like to see....They just might implement it

Heres the link to that thread: link Bottom of first page

I think a Toy Safety seminar or info page would be good. Like why such and such materials are "safer", what kinds of lube you can use with what toys/condoms/whatever, etc.

It will be common knowledge for most, but it might be good for newbies if it was all in one spot.

I said no, I wouldn't attend - but that's mostly because I don't know who would give most of those seminars. I mean, a lot of us could teach a class on material safety, but the more complicated issues of gender and sexuality... I mean will Eden contact doctors, psychiatrists, etc. to run these things? Those aren't just topics that can be well covered and explained by your layperson off the street.

It's a good idea in theory, but Eden is pretty much a sex toy shop. So they focus on selling sex toys. They do have interviews with people/experts in the field sometimes, and you could always ask those folks any questions you have.

I think that this is a great idea as well! This would definitely help a lot of folks. I think that it could even help me! Even us "old timers" need a good brush up course sometimes on certain things.

Exactly. I definitely agree with you. There are quite a few of our members here that are nurses, sex therapists and such. I think that those folks, if so inclined, would be a great resource and excellent to teach on those topics. I think those that are most qualified (or at least those that have done their research and contacted such professionals) would be best.

I really like this idea and I think that I would join in on some of these. You know way more about this stuff than I do, and most of the time I am coming to you for advice or information for the reviews. I would love to be able to do things like that on my own though and have more information given to me about certain things and fetishes and stuff. I think that it would allow us to be more well rounded and might even find some more things that we're into. Stuff that maybe we were intimidated by to start with.

This sounds like a really great idea, and I would definitely support it. However, as I can't drive I probably wouldn't attend - I'd be too embarassed to ask my friends for a ride!

I know, right!? I'd love to learn more about certain fetishes. Maybe have even a branch off that and do one fetish per week per workshop or something.

The workshops are held online humblepie Errr, I think they are at least lol. As I understand it, they hold workshops in the forums and have it posted to the calendar at the top of the forums home page. Correct me if I am wrong, anyone?
