Let's Talk About Sex

Friday 16th - Sunday 18th February
trans masc. & cis men
Hathersage, Derbyshire
Bookings go live at 7pm on Monday 4th December 2017


The Let’s Talk About Sex! retreat will explore sexual, playful, casual and committed relationships between people who were assigned female at birth and no longer identify that way (trans and/or non-binary) and cis men. We will be guided by experienced facilitators, with members of the TBA team on hand as well. Workshops will look at the dynamics and possibilities in trans masculine and cis male relationships of all configurations, as well as some of the unique issues and questions that each of you might have. 

You don’t need to bring a partner to this retreat, although you can if you wish. Your partner will also need to register and pay. 

Like all TBA retreats, this weekend will be rooted in the TBA principles of body positivity, sex and intimacy, and emotional well-being. It is open to anyone who self-identified as being on the trans masculine spectrum – eg. trans masculine, trans man, FTM, transgender man, transsexual man, genderqueer, non-binary, man with a trans history – and non-binary people who were afab (assigned female at birth – please see our FAQ and Inclusion and Language page for more information on this term, as well as others), and to cis men.
