The Topic is: Sexual Medicine: When to Consult, Collaborate, and Refer by Aleece Fosnight, PA, CSC
This presentation will address the definition of sexual medicine and the various professionals who compose the sexual medical team, such as: physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists, pelvic floor specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse educators, and genetic counselors. We will address sexual health conditions that would benefit from consultation, collaboration, and referrals. Collaboration requires mutual trust, respect, and a clear flow of communication back and forth, utilizing ethical guidelines, which can vary in the healthcare world versus therapy. Additionally, we will discuss an example of how collaboration might look, as well as application of methods, with a sexual medicine team and overall sexual health team.
1. Define sexual medicine and its role in the sexual health team.
2. Building relationships and collaboration with sexual medicine clinicians
3. Identifying when to consult and refer to sexual medicine

There are a lot of people out there that kind of suck at being about actually say what you need. Maybe it's hard to even figure out what it is that you need! Are you one of them? Do you tend to date these people or are you partnered with one? Maybe you've already had sex and maybe you haven't, but you still haven't actually TALKED about it. Do you come from really different backgrounds and it's hard to bridge the gap? How do you break open that conversation of "this works for me" or "that really turns me off". How do you introduce a kink to someone who might not be into that sort of thing? What if you've got some body image stuff that you really hate to talk about but it can make intimacy go all sorts of wrong if it doesn't get acknowledged? What is THAT THING that is so hard for you to say?
Lucky for you we, here at V&V, revel in talking about really awkward stuff. We would love to break it down with you and give you some tips on how to have that tricky conversation.
If you're brave, bring a first date. We promise not to put you on the spot.
Host: Heather Edwards, pelvic PT, Sex Counselor, Founder of V&V
Location: The Block Off Biltmore
Relationships take many varied forms, and they have throughout history. This idea of one monogamous relationship for 50+ years is a relatively new thing, yet it gets placed on a pedestal. Would you like to learn about the bigger picture of what relationships can look like? Join us for a talk that will cover consentual nonmonogamy, polyamory, open relationship, "monogamish" relationships, jealously, attachment, and all off that gritty stuff that makes us human.
Panelists: Jamie Brazell, M.Ed., LMFT, CST, Jenny Shealy, LCSW, and Taylor Johnson
Host: Aleece Fosnight, PA-C, CSC, CSE
This event is FREE! $5 minimum at the Champagne Bar.
