SEX Conversations is a new monthly discussion group in Stroud.

Organisers say the aim is to discuss what is still a taboo subject for many.

Eva Karia, who is running the group, said: "We will talk about relationships, pleasure, consent, loneliness, connection and more.

"It could be many things but it won’t be boring."

The first session is on Thursday, July 11 at Atelier Stroud at 19A Lower Street, Stroud - gather at 6.45pm for the discussion which will run from 7pm to 9.30pm.

"Come and share or come and just listen," added Eva

"All bodies welcome, all ages above 18, all sexual orientations, all genders, all ethnicities, all faiths or no faith.

"Come if you are single or married or poly or whether you are celibate, have never had sex or have lots of it.

"You are all invited. The space will be held safely yet bravely."

The first half of the evening will give everyone the opportunity to share in a group of their gender - women, men and non-binary people will have their own space to connect.

Later the aim is to gather and share together.

Organisers stress that there is no pressure to talk, many attendees will just want to listen.

Tickets are £8, to book and for further information go to

Events will run once a month on a Thursday evening.

A session on August 29 will be specifically dedicated to the LGBTQI+ community.
