Gmfa’s sex course tours the uk in August


GMFA, the gay men’s health charity, today announced that its popular Sex Course will be touring the UK this August, bringing better sex to a city near you. GMFA will run the free one-day course in 12 cities across the UK to help men improve their sex life and gain a better understanding of how their body works.

Matthew Hodson, Head of Programmes at GMFA, says: “This is real sex education designed specifically for gay men – the kind many of us wished we’d had but didn’t get in school. It’s fun, informal and educational, providing lots of practical advice on how the mouth, cock, balls and arse work.”

The course includes hints and tips on making sex both safer and more enjoyable and will help you to explore what you want from your sex life in a non-threatening, non-judgmental and fun way. It covers a broad range of topics, including putting a condom on properly, how to use sex toys and practical tips for oral sex.

GMFA first ran its Sex Course in London in 2003 and, by popular demand, extended it nationwide in 2007. This year’s courses will be run by both GMFA and trainers from local gay charities and healthcare services including: The Armistead Project, The Eddystone Trust, Healthy Gay Nottingham, The Lesbian and Gay Foundation, MESMAC North East, The Sheffield Centre for HIV & Sexual Health, Southampton Gay Community Health Service, Terrence Higgins Trust, and Yorkshire MESMAC.

Matthew adds: “The demand for this course is always high and I think that’s because there is a real need for this type of sex education across the UK. Through this course, our aim is for gay men to become better informed about sex and sexual practices, allowing them to be more confident and to make healthier choices.”

All of GMFA’s courses and workshops are free of charge to participants but places are limited and must be booked in advance. To book a place, go to or call 020 7738 3712.
