This Weekend! Building Meaningful Relationships


A LightHouse ‘Love and Intimacy’ Workshop Series

Are blind people naturally better in bed? Can blindness be sexy? Join the ‘Building Meaningful Relationships’ crew for a discussion of these and many other sex positive topics in our final workshop of the year, Sex: Questions and Answers.

When: Saturday, December 10, 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Where: LightHouse San Francisco Headquarters

In our two previous workshops we have explored the excitement of flirting, examined the possible pitfalls of dependence, and now we are hosting an A to Z discussion about sex in the blind community which promises to be our most inspiring topic to date!

Sex can be an exciting topic; however, we are aware that for some it can be an embarrassing topic as well. For this reason we will not require that workshop participants share anything personal with the group. Feel free to come, and simply listen. Adults 18 and over are invited to join us in creating a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space. The “Building Meaningful Relationships” workshop series is guided by blind professional therapists, counselors and psychologists; these workshops fill a much-requested need we hear from our community. And we expect to break some new ground!

Our first workshop installment, Flirting While Blind, sparked much enthusiasm and interest for more in-depth discussion and sharing of ideas to help us connect better with people who we want to get to know more intimately. The second workshop of the series, Navigating Love & Intimacy, focused on the ways in which disability and dependence can affect relationships. Now, for our final installment of the year, Sex: Questions and Answers, we will explore the areas of sex, gender, and culture. Visually impaired individuals, couples, and couples with mixed abilities are all encouraged to come and share their experiences, or just listen.

Whether this will be your first workshop or you are a returning participant, come and enjoy some refreshments, and enlightening conversation. Please RSVP by December 9 to Brandon Young at

This workshop is free of charge. Voluntary donations of $5.00 to $15.00 are encouraged for those who are able. We’ll see you there!
