Beyond the Bedroom is dedicated to providing quality information and education on relationship and intimacy skills to an audience eager for learning and greater depth in their lives. We work diligently to create an environment of safety where such topics can be discussed with leaders in the field of topics covered at Beyond the Bedroom. We invite singles and couples to attend workshops that will expand their ability to connect with their current or future partners.
The safety and comfort of our audience is always on our mind. While we do seek to expand and broaden horizons, we realize the importance of the right environment in which to do so. We do not allow nudity at our events, although the presentations might include nudity or partial nudity in the class materials for educational purposes only. Beyond the Bedroom does teach about sex and sexuality which includes teaching about how our bodies function. Most of our classes are have some audience participation, but it is not required to attend.
Beyond the Bedroom was started as a cooperative effort between Loving More, a not-for-profit advocacy group supporting polyamorous families and relationships, and the Advocates and Educators for Sexual Awareness (AESA). The purpose of Beyond the Bedroom is to provide fact-based relationship and intimacy education to adults. Due to the immediate and easy access to pornography, too many adults receive most, if not all, of their learning about sex and intimacy by watching porn. Beyond the Bedroom strives to re-educate those whose only learning comes from these channels. We at Beyond the Bedroom believe the better and more informed we are, the better, safer and healthier decisions we make for ourselves and our partnerships.

Most marriage counselors have limited training in the area of sex and sexuality; many such degrees require only 10-hours of sex education.
Our goal is to teach our audience relationship and intimacy skills which may be used to save or deepen existing relationships and better prepare our unattached attendees for
