Fun Little Sex Games (online vsn for couples, all orientations) in Melbourne
1 Albert Rd
This online workshop presents a series of fun little games and activities to support exploration of your sexuality and cultivate playful communication with a partner. ‘Couples’, in this context, means any two people who are in a touch-based relationship. Why fumble around with intimate contact and hope for the best, when you could be having exactly what you want, at precisely the level you want it? Join us for a gradually deepening series of little games and activities that can easily be used as ongoing practices. Over three+ hours you will learn how to recognise what you want, understand your boundaries, communicate all of this to a partner, get better at dropping fully into giving or receiving mode, and - finally! - embed consent and negotiation into your sex-life in a way that reflects your brand of sexy. This is achieved through a variety of exercises, some with touch, and some without. Both partners will need to be in the same room, with enough space to sit, stand, and lie down, and be free from distractions.

Couples of any gender or sexual orientation. WHO NOT FOR: Couples that are unable to be in the same room and engage in simple touch activities due to physical isolation.

Touch exercises that teach boundary-setting and communication. Touch exercises that teach different styles of touch. Eye-gazing and breathing. WILL THERE BE PAIR WORK? Yes. Lots. Please note, you only ever work to a level thats right for you, from cautious to delicious! You may also sit out of any exercise that is not right for you. HOW WILL PAIRING BE DONE? For this ‘couples’ version of this workshop, you will only be doing exercises with the person next to you - no small-group ‘breakout’ rooms. NUDITY: No nudity on screen. You will have total privacy during exercises to do as you wish, however there is no requirement or expectation that you will get naked. SEXUAL CONTENT: The workshop is primarily about sexuality and sexual expression. However, all exercises can be done in a non-sexual way.

CAMERAS: All exercises involving touch are done in complete privacy, without your video or microphone. Some discussion activities are done with your video on, but your microphone off. HEADPHONES & MICROPHONES: Microphone quality is not important. TWO PEOPLE PER LAPTOP?: Yes, you are welcome to share a device for this workshop. ROOM: A reasonably quiet room, free from distractions, is needed. TIMING AND BREAKS: We recognise that Zoom has its advantages, but can be tiring. We include more breaks, accordingly. LATE POLICY: Workshops will be locked to new entrants a few minutes after the advertised start time, otherwise the workshop becomes confusing for you and other participants. TICKETS Our rounds of tickets are really simple: theyre all the same, except that some of them are cheaper, to encourage you to book in early (because it makes a huge difference to us in terms of planning). Round One tickets are similar to early bird tickets, and make up almost half of all ticket sales. Round Two tickets, slightly more expensive than Round One, also make up almost half of all ticket sales. Round Three tickets are generally only there once were close to being sold out, but can squeeze in a late-comer or two. If youre feeling generous, you can buy whatever ticket feels right, but in general, folks buy the cheapest ones available. For this workshop, tickets range in price from $55 to $85, per person.
