Sexual Communication Weekend

Sexual Communication Weekend
at The Essex Resort and Spa

Columbus Day Weekend: October 11-14, 2013



Sex Therapist Laurie Watson offers a long weekend for couples designed to deepen their sexual communication and erotic experience with each other. Three full days to finally talk about and enrich your most intimate physical expression of love for each other in a safely guided format.






During the peak leaf season in Vermont, our luxury weekend will be at The Essex Resort and Spa, whose mission is to afford every guest a wide variety of resort experiences complemented by exceptional customer service.

Building on their unique standing as one of the country’s only Culinary Resorts, their gourmet food is the cornerstone of their offerings.

Founded in 1989, The Essex Resort & Spa is an 18-acre property located just outside of Burlington, with 120 inviting rooms, two restaurants, a full-service Spa, Salon & Fitness Center, indoor and outdoor pools, and three public teaching kitchens in their Cook Academy.
