7 Erotic Nights, a course in intimacy and pleasure, guides you and a partner through a series of activities to learn new ways to talk, touch and play together. The course consist of seven 2-hour sessions done once a week for 7 weeks, where you enjoy gentle, hands-on encounters that teach the building blocks of lasting intimacy. The exercises, short and sweet, simple and profound, more sensual than sexual, invite you to reconnect in a relaxed pleasure. One man said, “I discovered a new continent.”
7 Erotic Nights gives you get the best of two worlds—you play in the privacy of your home and you study as part of a group of 7 other couples (some from around the world!). Charla facilitates periodic group check ins by phone conferencing, where you learn from the teacher and other couples who voice their insights, challenges and successes (anonymously if desired). Students say being part of a group is fun and motivating, “You do your homework, but just as much learning (and fun) happens when the whole group gets together to talk about their homework experiences.” Another graduate said, “Doing it with a group kept us going and made for a richer experience.”
Charla begins the course with a Welcome Call to the group where she outlines the adventure ahead. For the next 7 weeks, once a week, you receive her short instructional video that preps you for the juiciness of the next erotic night, along with a short written guide. Yummy. Charla monitors a private 7 Erotic Nights Facebook Group during the course where couples post questions, comments, highlights and receive daily inspiration.
At the end of the course you are invited to join other 7 Erotic Nights graduates for a weekend retreat (additional tuition) where Charla takes your skills to a new level in a group setting. The retreats, spring and fall at lovely resort locations, let you celebrate your achievements in conscious community and further your journey into intimacy.

Day Workshop with Charla
Next Date TBA, Central Austin, $85/person or $160 w/ a friend
Mmm, that glorious moment when we are giving (or getting) exactly the touch that feels good on our body! Sometimes we find that “sweet spot” spontaneously, but more often, we find it through clear communication and feedback.
How many of us say “yes” to things we don’t actually want out of guilt or a fear of losing connection? Learn through structured, sweet activities to offer and request touch, negotiate the touch you want, and give verbal feedback on the touch you receive.
Practice good erotic communication skills that make you feel safe, relaxed, and sensual. Participants often remark, “I could feel more. I didn’t have to worry about guessing or getting it right. Everything slowed down.” Expressing clear boundaries makes your playing field bigger…and more exciting!
In this workshop, you will expand your erotic self awareness, trust, and expression. Anxiety about performance melts away and a natural curiosity emerges. Activities are sensual, not sexual. Couples may choose to practice together; Singles are welcome. Email Charla for location

What others say:
I learned more in a couple hours than in ten years of marriage. Robert, 37
I’m 54 years old and you can read all you want, you can talk to other men all you want, but hearing it from two expert women and practicing the strokes makes all the difference. John
I learned so much about how to talk with my lover about the touch I want. I learned that I can get what I want and feel connected to him at the same time. Charla’s a master at making hard things to talk about seem easy. I’m so thankful. Ashley

Men are naturally capable of multiple, whole body orgasms and prolonged waves of bliss…just as women are. Learn to massage his ‘hidden cock’ and find new ways to open a man’s profound capacity for of internal and external orgasmic joy. Men and Women, come to this class if you desire to honor and touch the male body to encourage his deep surrender, emotional release and spiritual connection.
Certified Sexological Bodyworker, Charla Hathaway, and best-selling author of Erotic Massage: Sensual Touch for Deep Pleasure and Extended Arousal (available in nine languages), demonstrates on a live male model how to give a man a full body, sensual massage. She covers male anatomy, how to prepare a man for “receiving” deep bodywork, full body strokes, genital massage, and external and internal prostate massage. Participants do not massage each other (like in her Intro to Couples Tantra Loving class). You are invited (your choice) to try the strokes on the model.
Many men have not experienced massage without feeling pressure to perform or “give back.” Often men have not learned to experience the sensual journey instead of focusing on a destination. Many have yet to discover the pleasure of perineum and prostate exploration. A man receiving this kind of massage may enjoy extended Erotic Trance States and heightened potency, pleasure, and health–including prostate health.
Students are amazed at how comfortable they feel in the company of others learning such sensitive material. You will drop a sense of shame, separation and isolation around the body, and begin to enjoy, within a community of fellow seekers, an authentic and sacred connection to the body erotic.
