In the indoor swimming pool, we will explore playing with water, going to new depths of power exchange. We will discuss, demonstrate and try out the possibilities of different types of submersion. This will be played with on a spectrum from sensual to scary. Deliberately invoking fear impulses through a type of play that triggers our survival instincts and allows us to access our most base and primal emotions.
Hosts include a trained lifeguard / swimming teacher. Number of participants will be strictly limited in order to hold the space safely. Please be aware this type of play is not for everyone and take care of yourself by considering carefully whether it would be comfortable for you to attend. There will be parts of the workshop where people will be being held underwater by someone else and their bodies may instinctively struggle, even if they are having an incredibly fun and sexy time.
