Sex workshops? Color us puritan; even the more adventurous among us might prefer taking the remedial class behind closed doors to learning black-belt moves in front of smirking strangers (though they give new meaning to “getting up in front of the class”). But there are some seminars that specialize in information, not just titillation, and Babeland still offers the best in town. This year, the Soho branch introduced Transgender(ED) Sex, a low-key and thoughtful workshop that emphasized open communication and inventive new uses for all the basic sex toys. It was a niche that had to be filled, so to speak, and Babeland made everyone and everybody feel empowered.
