The Fine Art of Prostate Massage
The prostate is an often-mysterious part of human anatomy. It can also be a source of intense pleasure. As part of the male reproductive system, it is vital to health. When included as part of the sexual arousal cycle, and as part of the arouse-release cycle, it is a source of pleasure. We'll consider the whole picture: Where is the prostate located? What does it do? Do women have a prostate gland? How can we learn to enjoy it? What sorts of toys are needed to stimulate the prostate? Is it icky to play with? Is it dangerous to play with? What sorts of problems might we experience? What does getting a prostate massage feel like?
If you have had doubts or fears about the prostate, this is your chance to overcome that hesitation. If you have tried it before but haven't really "gotten" it, this will help you get there. Bring an open mind and any toys you like. If you want to be coached through giving a massage, this is your chance. This is planned as a hands-on workshop, and in addition to demonstrations, you will have the chance to learn by doing. Both singles (wanting either to give or receive) and partnered pairs are encouraged to attend.
Move the Body!
Come together for a dance movement that will fill your soul and energize your entire body. This workshop is an invitation to dance your erotic and sensual soul. Dance with self, with other, with all. Open yourself to a whirled of sensuous delight as we all lift our hearts and bodies together. Taking our cue from the energy of Five Rhythms, we take a journey that unleashes our inner self through movement, and builds sexual energy through this movement. There is no requirement for body shape, condition, or age. You need only be open to any movement that you choose and define, and have FUN doing it. We will build our energy together through movement and dance! Some touch with other participants is possible but is entirely optional.
Kamindara: Shirodara through an Erotic Lens
Shirodara, a composite Sanskrit term that breaks down into ’shiro’ or head and ‘dhara’ or flow, is a long honored method to relax the mind and body. Warm oil (the ‘flow’ - stream of oil) is focused generally in the third eye area, and a slow spiral movement offers a path to deep relaxation. The power of this method may open the recipient up to a multilevel experience that invites the entire body to enjoy a deep, relaxing pleasure.
Come discover a new approach, Kamindara, or Erotic or loving flow. Using a similar modality, the recipient is opened to their own sense of erotic flow throughout the entire body. This practice focuses on the individual and is an opportunity to experience the power of pure receiving.
The practice involves streaming warmed oil over the body as a whole, with specific focal areas, including the chakras. This workshop will first offer a short introduction, followed by a complete demonstration. As time allows, workshop participants may have the chance to experience this profoundly relaxing erotic flow. If you think you might want to partake, please note that it gets messy! Plan on a bringing a sheet and a towel, and allow some time afterward to clean up!
