Advanced Giving Touch & Receiving Pleasure – Sydney – April 2020
April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$50
Advanced Giving Touch and Receiving Pleasure
This workshop is for men who have attended previous workshops or retreats and feel they have gained experience of navigating touch within the safety of boundaries and consent. Within this workshop we will have more time to explore the dynamic of giving and receiving with longer sessions spent with partners.
Receiving touch from another can be a wonderful experience and is also essential to our physical and mental health. However so frequently we receive touch we don’t want or we don’t receive the touch that we do want. This workshop helps us to break out of these old and tiring patterns and step into a world of self-directed, consensual pleasure!
We will start the workshop with some time to relax and get to know each other, followed by a recap on the theory behind the dynamic of Giving and Receiving, before working with multiple partners over more extended periods of time.
The dynamics of ‘Receiving’ and ‘Giving’ will be explained in more detail, before moving into partnered touch sessions as a way of exploring these dynamics more experientially.
You will learn how to listen to what your body desires. You’ll have an opportunity to request your desires to your various partners and with their consent; you can experience the power of getting your desires met.
This is a personal development workshop. This will be a naked space and can involve full body touch.
You will need to be able to sit on the floor and touch a person for extended periods of time, so please be aware of any injuries that may affect these activities before booking.
In this workshop you will be working with multiple partners who will be chosen randomly on the night, unless you arrive at the workshop already in a partner.This workshop is NOT suitable for beginners.
