MODERN PATH WORKSHOP TOUCH POLICY
As a sex positive organization there are times that our workshops will include touch and/or other forms of physical demonstration.

 Workshops that include touch or other forms of physical  demonstration will be clearly identified on the workshop sales page. This content is provided as a means for you to engage in informed consent prior to registering for the workshop.  

 This workshop centers topics that encompass sex, sexuality, intimacy, sensuality, and pleasure.  
This workshop includes Demonstrations: 

Demonstrations will be conducted by the facilitator, assistant, or pre-negotiated guest speaker who is not an attendee of the workshop.

Demonstrations will only occur in support of workshop objectives, classroom concepts, and related techniques.  

Demonstrations will first be displayed by the instructor and their assistant when applicable for the class to witness so that they may engage in reasonably informed consent related to the hands-on learning activity.  

Examples of a demonstration may include, but not limited to:

Attendees may be taught how to give each other hand massages as an experiential way to practice negotiating boundaries. Attendees may be taught how to hold or touch a partner in ways that feel supportive, intimate or erotic but not sexual. Attendees may be taught non-genital somatic breathe and/or touch exercises to enhance communication and boundaries around concepts of pleasure.  

This workshop includes touch.

All facilitators, assistants, and attendees agree there will be no exposure or touch of the genitals, buttocks, anus, or breast/chest tissue. These body parts will be covered by clothing at all times.  

Touch of any other body parts of the facilitators, assistants, and attendees will be for the purpose of education and demonstration with the express goal of integrating classroom concepts and meeting workshop objectives via negotiated boundaries and agreements.

Participants will not be able to avoid witnessing the facilitator and their assistant engage in touch. All touch between the facilitator and their assistant will have been pre-negotiated prior to the beginning of the workshop. This includes workshops where consent and communication are part of the workshop learning objectives.  

All negotiations between attendees must occur within the workshop, regardless of any agreements, understandings, or “relationship norms” attendees may have with other attendees outside of the workshop.  

Participants will have the ability to determine their own degree of skin exposure and touch within the boundaries stated above when skin exposure and touch are relevant to the workshop learning objectives. This includes opting out of skin exposure and/or touch at any time and learning via observation instead of hands-on practice. Specifically, a decline for touch is always an option that is supported and honored.

The workshop facilitator and/or assistant will not touch workshop attendees. Touch of attendees will be limited to touch by other attendees.  

The facilitator will be present in the room during all touch activities.  

There is a wide range of  risks and benefits to participating in the workshop as presented by the instructor. There is no way for Modern Path or its team members to be able to foresee all of the potential risks and benefits. We encourage you to determine your own level of comfort based on the environment, instructor, other participants, and your general state of being on the day of the workshop.
