This is a full day workshop, where you will learn how to give and receive what we call an Erotic Play Massage. The massage is based on techniques of touch and communication from the school of sexological bodywork and is created to explore pleasure, trust, connection and joy for everyone involved.
We will explore what it means to treat the whole body as a pleasure organ and how it feels in our bodies when we consciously shift our awareness from fixity to fluidity. We believe that the exploration of pleasure is closely related to play, humor and joy and we will explore how to add a playful tone to our connections, where we at the same time can hold the vulnerability of each other.
We will explore how safety and trust is essential for our nervous system to open up for any kind of pleasurable touch and how basic communication can be established to create the right framework for giving and receiving a massage that is co created and connected to everyone involved.
What you will learn in this workshop
That communication is sexy. Basic tools to create a safe container for consent.
Techniques on how to touch another body and that slowness is the key to feel more. We will also include genital touch as a part of the teaching. Full nakedness and genital touch is optional and welcomed for participation.
A queer introduction to language of pleasure in bodies and gentials.
That play and pleasure goes hand in hand. Basic tools for opening the body up for playfulness.
How to treat the whole body as a pleasure organ.
Introduction to the nervous system and how to consciously play with breath in arousal and relaxation.
How we will pair up
We will be doing many different verbal and embodied exercises during the day. In this way we get to know each other in the group and create trust.
You can come alone or as a couple who want to work together doing the massage. Participants who come alone will be paired randomly, with no consideration of gender.
Three parts to the workshop
Introductions, group agreements and games for consent and boundaries.
Trust and intuition games and techniques on how to touch and play with breath and the nervous system.
How to get undressed in public (nudity optional) and the playful erotic massage exchange.
