Workshop – Degendering the Queer Bed

with Albert and Frede

Dildos, strap-ons, butt plugs – sex toys can be used to experiment in sexual encounters. But do sex toys necessarily belong to queer sex? How can we, as non-cis folks, be empowered through our sexual experiences?

In our workshop we’ll talk about sex, norms and the possibility of making genderqueer sex even queerer. Together we want to reject genital simplifications and try to find possibilities to see genitalia and other body parts differently. We want you all to claim your sexual imaginary and desires far from cishet culture.

We’ll do that with lots of creativity and honest discussion! We want to create a cozy safe space for trans*/inter*/non-binary/gender non-conforming and questioning folks. Let’s re-write what we want sex to be for us!

Frede and Albert are both white, one of them is a migrant and one has a migrant background. They define themselves as (gender)queer: one as a non-binary, trans and transfemme, the other as neither* nor trans*. They are based between Berlin and Barcelona and have given several workshops for non-cis folks around Germany.

They will create an open space for people to talk about different topics. If you have any wishes or questions, please let them know and they will try to integrate them: forqueernessinbed@gmail.com

Workshop – Prostate Pleasure: An Introduction

There will also be a tea tasting of herbs connected with prostate health, and some sexy readings from Otter’s new transfeminist novel to inspire your imagination!

The workshop is open to anyone interested, with a focus on creating a safe and cozy atmosphere to discuss this most tender of subjects. Trans/non binary folks with prostates, and their partners, are particularly warmly invited.

Workshop – Embracing Jealousy

mit Inna Barinberg

Eifersucht ist ein Mysterium. Selten wird darüber geredet, noch seltener gehen wir in die Tiefe, entschlüsseln das komplizierte Geflecht und holen es von seinem furchteinflößenden Thron. In den meisten Ratgebern wird es zu einem negativen und ablehnenswerten „Gefühl“ abgestempelt. In der Folge fühlen sich die meisten Menschen schlecht und haben das Gefühl zu scheitern.

Nicht in diesem Workshop.

Indem wir entschlüsseln, was sich hinter Eifersucht verbirgt, können wir unseren Ängsten und Sorgen begegnen und sie angehen. Anstatt uns noch länger darüber zu ärgern, dass wir immer noch Eifersucht empfinden, können wir sie als Teil von uns akzeptieren und sie dementsprechend behandeln. Die positiven Aspekte von Eifersucht werden dabei ebenso eine Rolle spielen, wie diejenige, für die wir einen Umgang finden wollen.

Durch unterschiedliche Methoden, in Einzelarbeit und Gruppengesprächen, habt ihr die Möglichkeit Aspekte eurer Eifersucht kennenzulernen, euch auszutauschen – natürlich nur so viel wie ihr mögt und euch gut tut – und entwickelt durch das Wissen, was hinter Eifersucht steht, Hilfsmittel für einen Umgang damit.

Inna Barinberg hat jahrelange Erfahrung mit queeren und geöffneten Beziehungen, seit einiger Zeit schreibt sie nicht nur Beiträge zu dem Thema, sondern gibt auch Workshops. Sie legt besonders viel Wert auf einen bestärkenden und unterstützenden Ansatz.

Workshop – Introduction to Japanese Rope Bondage

with Ann Antidote – sold out!

This hands-on workshop is dedicated to getting you doing Japanese bondage (shibari), whether you’re an absolute beginner or already have some experience.

No matter what, you’ll learn some basic knots and techniques so that you can tie independently well after the workshop is over.

Diversity of all kinds is not only welcome in this workshop, but a fundamental part of it!

Workshop – Berühre dich: Ganzkörper-Masturbations-&-Inspirationsworkshop

mit Nino Mar Seliz

Beim Masturbieren bewegen sich Menschen häufig in gewohnten und konditionierten
Zonen, weil Sinn und Zweck meist eng verbunden ist mit Ziel und Leistung, z.B. „schnell
zum Orgasmus kommen“. Gleichzeitig kann auch Scham und tabuisiertes damit verbunden
und immer wieder Überwindung nötig sein, um in eine Art Masturbations-Praxis zu
kommen. Menschen greifen darin oft und gerne auf gewohnte Muster im Umgang mit
Emotionen, Bewegungen und Handgriffen zurück. Selbstliebe-Praxis braucht manchmal
jedoch gar kein konkretes Ziel, mit einer bestimmten Intention kann es sich aufregend
und erfüllend anfühlen.
In diesem Workshop wird es darum gehen, Neues auszuprobieren, heraus zu finden was du
brauchst, um in Verbindung mit dir und deinem Körper zu sein, eigene Muster zu
entdecken und offen zu werden für eine Ganzkörper-fokussiertere Art der Stimulation, z.B.
neue Lustorte am Körper finden, mit Atemvariationen und Einbeziehung von Stimme und
Bewegung den Körper in unterschiedlichen Zuständen erleben.
Dieser Workshop kann Vorbereitung für die eigene Masturbationspraxis und
Inspirationsort sein. Wir tauchen gemeinsam und jede Person für sich in die eigene
Körperwelt ein, ohne Nacktheit, lernen miteinander und mit dem umzugehen, was da ist.

Nino Mar Seliz ist somatisch-systemischer Körpernaut* und sexological bodyworker* kurz
vor der Zertifikation und möchte in diesem Workshop Menschen zu mehr ganzheitlichem
Masturbieren einladen und inspirieren.

Workshop – Ja-Sagen für Anfänger*innen und Fortgeschrittene

mit Joris Kern

In diesem Workshop geht es darum, das eigene Ja zu sich selbst, zur Lust und Sexualität im Besonderen und zum Leben allgemein zu feiern, zu erforschen und weiter zu entwickeln.

Dabei geht es um das freie Ja, also ein Ja, das in dem Bewusstsein entsteht, dass ein Nein genauso möglich ist und ein Teil von Ja-Sagen zu sich selbst sein kann. Ein Ja, das ein selbstbestimmtes Experimentieren und Erleben erlaubt und lustvoll werden lässt.

Zu entdecken gibt es verschiedene Arten von Ja, Wachstum und Klarheit, verschiedene Zugänge zu Freiheit und den Unterschied zwischen den Qualitäten von Zustimmen und Wünschen.

Ich, Joris Kern gebe seit Jahren Workshops zu Sexualität mit dem Fokus auf Konsens, meist in FLT(I)*-Räumen, gelegentlich auch für alle Geschlechter. Das macht mir großen Spaß und ist mir ein wichtiges Anliegen. Seit meiner Kindheit interessieren mich Freiräume im Spiel mit Geschlechterrollen.

Workshop – Poly How-To

with Inna Barinberg

Entering an open relationship can be challenging – or even chaotic! Equally, it’s a great opportunity to become more aware of what we appreciate about our relationships – and what we’d like to change. In this workshop, we’ll take a close look at both the thrills and challenges of open relationships.

We’ll focus on communication, boundaries and definitions: what is “sex” to you? How do you define a relationship? And what does it mean to be faithful? Exploring these tough-to-navigate areas, you’ll gain clarity about your own needs that can support your future decisions. There will also be space to include individual wishes, questions and needs throughout the evening.

With the chance to reflect individually and engage in group work, you’ll hear different perspectives and empower yourself and each other with Poly How-To for your open-relationship adventures

Open to everyone, regardless of experience.

Inna Barinberg has many years’ experience with queer and open relationships. For some time she has not only written articles on this topic, but also given workshops. Inna places particular importance on offering and empowering and supportive approach.
