For verification purposes you are considered to be “fully vaccinated” two weeks after completing the second dose of a two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two weeks after receiving the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
For this event, due to the constantly evolving situation, we will be monitoring local case counts and guidelines to determine our masking requirements closer to the event date.

Sexual Attitude Reassessment (SAR) is a process-oriented, reflexive group experience that promotes participants' awareness of their attitudes toward sexuality.
Join sexologist and co-founder of San Francisco’s Center for Sex & Culture Carol Queen for a unique in-person SAR workshop exploring a range of practices to enhance your therapeutic or counseling work.
Dr. Queen’s SAR offers an opportunity to examine and question your attitudes, values, and beliefs regarding a variety of sexual practices. Participants tackle guilt, shame, and bias around topics of pornography, body image, fantasy, gender, masculine/feminine stereotypes, kink, non-monogamy, polyamory, and more. This experiential workshop allows participants to explore their personal, emotional responses in pairs and small groups. Participants also engage with visual media and listen to guest speakers.
This SAR includes exposure to sexually explicit material. No one will ever be forced to look at material if it goes against personal values to do so. Everyone is encouraged to participate in discussions— whether they have viewed the material or not.
