Please plan your travel to be on time. South street is extremely busy on the weekends and parking is limited. If you are taking an Uber/Lyft, consider being dropped off on 3rd or 4th street and walking 1 block to Sexploratorium.

No day-of refunds will be given. Please call or email if you cannot attend a class.

 Accessibility note: We recognize that not every willing participant can access our third floor classroom. If you would like to attend a class but have accessibility needs, or if you need an ASL or tactile interpreter, please email with 10 days notice, and we will make every attempt to relocate and / or provide interpretation.


Since 1996, Passion 101 Classes have been offered weekly at Fetishes BoutiqueAphrodite Gallery and now at Sexploratorium as well as at regional and national conventions.

 Presentations can be scheduled at your community organization, private party or student club by appointment. Remote presentations require a minimum of two students, but private one-on-one consultations can be scheduled in the 3rd floor Community Room of our store located at 317 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147.

 Course topics can be tailored to meet the needs of students by request. Students are encouraged to provide feedback via surveys distributed during each class.

Current curricula focus on four major areas of sexuality:

  • Anatomy/Physiology/ Sexual technique
  • Relationships/ Psychology/Communication
  • Psychosexual Fantasy/ Fetish/ BDSM technique
  • Erotic Fine Arts /Performance/Exercise

 Some individual classes that fall under these categories are offered for specific audiences: i.e. women only, couples only, queer/transgender-identified only etc. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, our classes are open to everyone.

Our presenters do not act as sexworkers or surrogates: We will coach you on techniques and strategies for a better sex life, but we won’t play the game for you or with you.


Check our upcoming course schedule of workshops scheduled at Sexploratorium and other locations in Philadelphia.
