Passion 101 Classes @ Sexploratorium

The mission of PASSION 101 Classes is to provide interactive, educational, and entertaining learning experiences that enhance the abilities of individuals, couples, and other intimately acquainted persons to better understand sexual techniques, improve the dynamics of relationships/intimacy, practice useful methods of sexual communication, maintain and improve spiritual/physical/sexual health, and to develop an appreciation of diverse sexual expression.



PASSION 101 Classes are being conducted online for the forseeable future until further notice.


Doors Open/Start Time Policy:

The event space opens for classes/events 15 minutes before the listed start time. (ex: doors at 6:45pm, class starts at 7:00pm.) Doors to the event space close 15 minutes after class begins.

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.

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. 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 participants by request. Participants are encouraged to provide feedback via surveys distributed during each class.

Current curricula focus on four major areas of sexuality:

  • Anatomy/Physiology and 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/trans only etc. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, our classes are open to everyone.

Our presenters are there to educate and do not perform sexual activities on participants during class. If a participant arrives to class dressed inappropriately or does not respect the intention of the space, they will be asked to leave.


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