This workshop is going to challenge your attraction patterns by making a space for bodies to explore pleasure beyond identities. As trans people we have experienced the power of letting go of fixed ideas about (sexual) attraction. We invite you to play with: what happens if you let go of the idea of “having sex” and instead focus on experiencing pleasure with somebody? Can you find yourself being attracted to people and bodies that you didn't expect to be attracted to?

The workshop is structured in the form of ritualistic play in couples and groups, which leads us out of our everyday patterns. Nudity and arousal is welcomed but not expected. Everyone can participate in their own way. Please bring a towel or sheet.
