Dr. Eli Sheff at Chattanooga Start Up Week

One City. Five Days. 100+ Events.png


I am excited about participating in Chattanooga’s Start Up Week. My first workshop on Monday, Crash Course in Design Thinking, will hopefully help with the redesign of this website. There are so many interesting workshops happening this week that there is no way I can go to everything that appeals to me, but for now I have my eye on making a podcast, low cost marketing, tips on how to negotiate, funding for small businesses, and the kombucha brewery tour.

Dr. Eli Sheff Excited to be Presenting at Endless Poly Summer


This will be my first time at Endless Poly Summer, and I am thrilled to be presenting at the lovely Abrams Creek Retreat Center in the West Virginia Countryside. Not only do I get to lounge in their creek and do some forest bathing, I get to learn from amazing people like authors Patricia Johnson and Mark Michaels, Tantra practitioner and osteopath Harold Kornylak, and resident grassroots poly big wigs Sarah Taub and Michael Rios. I will be presenting “Untangling LGBTQIAKOP,” “Polyamorous Parenting,” and “What Kids REALLY Think of their Poly Families.”

Sex Down South Conference Tons of Fun with Sexy Brains


This first year of the Sex Down South conference was FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Tons of fun, lots of new ideas, great people to chat with, and so many amazing sessions it was difficult to choose what amazing thing I got to learn next. Lucky for us, the organizers plan to do it again next October so start planning now to have your socks knocked off by all of the incredible presenters and attendees.

Some of the highlights:

Tristan Taormino talking about how to make open relationships work

Dinner with Ricci Levy from the Woodhull Alliance for Sexual Freedom

Meeting so many fun new people I can’t even name them all

Seeing some wonderful old friends I had not gotten to see in too long

The absolute best burlesque/spoken word combo I have ever seen

I can’t wait for SDS 2016! Hope to see you there…
