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.
