Get ready, bitches, cause I'm finally coming back to Chicago!
Most of you know that I haven't been back to Chicago in about 10 years, but will always consider myself a Chicagoan.
*Back story: grew up in Winnetka, Illinois and graduated from New Trier High School in 1989. My family moved away from the area when I graduated from college in 1993, so it's not like I have any direct family members living there anymore. Well, that is kinda a lie because my husband's dad and step mom live there part time, but they aren't exactly my biggest fans nor the warmest people in the world*

I was really excited to receive a birthday invitation from one of my high school friends and figured it was as good as time as any to get back there since I have really been missing Chicago. I'm also thrilled that I am able to fit in a sexuality workshop during the same visit.
I'm sincerely hoping to catch up with many of my friends and would be super thrilled and amused if any of you decide to attend my workshop titled "Oh Yeah! Right There!" on Thursday, May 5, 2011 at 8pm at Early to Bed.
So I'm putting the call out to all of my old friends, lovers, and frenemies to come check me out**. Maybe you have a perverse curiosity to see how different I look from when you knew me back in the day, or maybe you just really want to see me talk for over an hour about human sexuality, pleasure anatomy, and awesome sex toys. I'll even spring for the first round of drinks if you are an old friend and want to hang out with me after the workshop...what more can you ask for?
Wanna join me? Early to Bed is located at 5232 N. Sheridan Road and you can call 773-271-1219 to register for the workshop.
Here is more information on the event:
"We are super excited to be able to bring you this fun & informative workshop from Catherine Toyooka.
The majority of us are unfamiliar, bewildered, and uncomfortable with our sexual anatomy. It is no wonder considering most of us don’t even get that information from our own doctors.
This interactive workshop uses diagrams, puppets, and photos to help demystify the confusion surrounding both male and female pleasure anatomy. Topics covered include the sexual response cycle, orgasms, the g spot, the p spot, and anal sex.
Participants will also be introduced to how sex toys can enhance both solo and partnered lovemaking.
This workshop is $25 ($20 students/low income). Sign up yourself and a friend/lover for only $45! Folks of all genders and orientations welcome.
Reservations are required. Register by calling us at 773-271-1219 or on our website here. Feel free to email us at workshops(at)early2bed(dot)com with any questions. This Workshop is held at Early to Bed, 5232 N. Sheridan Rd. in Chicago.
Reaching thousands of people each year, Catherine has been a featured sexuality speaker and sex educator at many prestigious locations including Stanford University, Stanford Medical Hospital, UCSF Medical Hospital, UC Berkeley, Planned Parenthood, The San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and the Ryan White National Youth HIV Conference.

Catherine is a sought after media consultant, professional development speaker, and a sexuality speaker and sex educator. Catherine is also a dating coach and sex coach who improves the lives of busy professionals living in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond."
**The 2011 me has definitely gained weight since high school, is a much nicer person, and my breasts have grown exponentially.
