Kinky Massage (9:30-11am)

An invitation to engage in a research into how ‘therapeutic’ massage and bodywork techniques can interplay with BDSM practices and mutually inform and inspire one another.

In Traditional (Western and non-Western) bodywork modalities experiencing erotic pleasure or arousal while giving or receiving bodywork is disallowed, something to hide or mitigate and is even considered shameful or unethical (on the part of the practitioner). A client might enjoy receiving firmer and more intense touch, but references to masochism are hardly ever made.

On the other hand, forms of massage dubbed as ‘erotic’ focus heavily on genitals, neglecting other parts of the body.

Kinky Massage is an invitation to release these inhibitions by allowing (mutual) pleasure, pain, muscular and emotional release and relaxation come together in a playful dance of giving and receiving.

Sexobatics with Jonno Katz (9:30-11am)

Imagine acroyoga as a dance where our boundaries are open and flexible. This workshop will explore simple partner acrobatic positions and how we can kink them up. Get ready to get nude as well as to play with your beautiful genitals which are very often underestimated in acroyoga.  This workshop requires presence, trust, surrender, playfulness and communication. We will investigate touch and how to direct another person’s body in space.

This workshop is open to all genders, sexual preferences and skill levels and equally suitable for those participating alone or with a partner.

Thresholds and Lust with Peter Banki, Ph.D (11:30-1pm)

The proximity to death is not necessarily negative, it can be that which gives us the feeling of being most alive. Death touches us not simply as “a fact of life”, but also as a fantasmatic object of desire. Many people, consciously or unconsciously, search for limit-experiences for the intensity and thrill of being on the threshold of something that gives them the feeling of being close to death.
In this workshop, we’ll explore how certain erotic practices encroach the fantasmatic thresholds of death and dying. You’ll be given the opportunity to try them.  All activity will be safe, consensual and risk aware.

Sex Toys with Ira Zev (11:30-1pm)

When is the caress of your hand, the intimacy of genitals, penetrating eye contact, or the slap of buttocks, not enough? When in a relationship do you bring something else out… and what is the thing you bring? What objects are fun in sex play, and why? Is it for extra sensation, sensation deprivation, power play, or something else? A household item?  Dress up? Sex toys?

Let’s surprise each other by bringing something we like, something that may be outside the box…..!

Join us to have a laugh, do some games, and explore what makes objects a nice adjunct to human touch in sex play.

Bring along one of your favorite sex objects! Or bring them all!

Liquid Love: Bodygliding with Nuru (2:30-4:00pm)

In this  workshop we will experience what it is to slide over, around and on top of each other with massage oil. Liquid Love is a collective experience exploring the sensuality of flowing skin to skin contact. We will begin with dry massage in small groups with your chosen partner or partners. And then once the warm, fine, neutral oil is on your skin, you will have the option of moving in a sea together with others.

This workshop is a sensual, but not sexual experience. Genital touch is not encouraged. Everyone is invited to respect their own rhythm and limits to touch and nudity.

We invite you to move and allow yourself to be moved without intentions or sexual orientation. Releasing our usual desire to take action on erotic sensations and thoughts we invite you to be present with them and to relax into the energetic flow of the bodies around you. This is a place where you can love and be loved in an impersonal and unbound manner and above all a place to super charge your soul.

It is important to us to create a safe, trusting, and responsible environment where you can feel comfortable in the presence of other people in the group.

Permission For Pleasure with Morgana (2:30-4pm)

Learning how to give yourself permission to experience pleasure is a process many of us struggle with. Morgana Muses has been documenting her own journey from repressed, celibate housewife to award winning ethical pornographer at the tender age of 48 since 2012. This workshop will feature a selection of her erotic films which document her sexual exploration and feature an introduction and Q&A at the end of the screening.

Since 2012, at the age of 48 Morgana Muses has been busting taboos, breaking down traditions and titillating audiences with her brand of cheeky, irreverent erotica, Morgana came from a repressive, suburban life as a sexless housewife, until at 48 she decided to reinvent herself as a pornographer and begin to reclaim her sexuality. She has won multiple awards for her work, including best fetish film at the 2017 Toronto International Porn Film Fesitival and Heartthrob Of The Year at the Feminist Porn Awards in 2015.

Erotic Literature with Sarah Roffey (4:30-6pm)

Words can be powerful in wooing lovers, in love letters and during erotic and sexual encounters. Literature and poetry have for centuries and continue to play a role in relationships, to excite, entice, tease and penetrate minds and bodies. Have you ever become aroused by an email or a phrase uttered by someone? What kinds of words or literature turn you on? What would you love a lover to whisper into your ear or breathe into your mouth?

In this workshop, we will explore reading erotic poetry and literature to one another, exploring words with our minds and our bodies. Where do we feel a certain phrase in our bodies? What tone of voice excites us. What kind of writing do we enjoy listening to and hearing from others? What do certain kinds of touch feel like when alongside certain words? You will also be invited to explore your own erotic writing. Bring your imagination!

“Who taught you to write in blood on my back? Who taught you to use your hands as branding irons? You have scored your name into my shoulders, referenced me with your mark. The pads of your fingers have become printing blocks, you tap a message on to my skin, tap meaning into my body.”

Jeanette Winterson

Carnal Witchcraft with Bianca Wolff (4:30-6pm)

Desire is the primal energy, and that energy is erotic: the attraction of lover to beloved, of planet to star, the lust of electron for proton. Love is the glue that holds the world together.” 
― StarhawkThe Spiral Dance: A Rebirth of the Ancient Religions of the Great Goddess


Our overculture entangles and shames our sexual selves. We are too much of this, not enough of that…Our true sexuality is buried under layers of ‘taboo’. Desires become rejected or remain unknown. How may we become whole? How may we lift the veil of mystery?

Our subconscious holds these hidden truths. It is the deep soil, fecund with inspiration and the hotbed for personal growth. I invite you to journey into the deep strata of your inner, hidden sexual self. Disinter that which seems forbidden, shamed or forlorn. 

You will be given magical tools, to actualize what you reclaim. This is the work of witchcraft, for the world needs your whole, unabashed sexuality.
