Pegging

Klara Lotte & Peter Banki

SAT 18:00-20:30

Pegging is a sexual practice where one person penetrates another person in the ass with a strap-on dildo.

While pegging usually refers to a woman performing anal sex on a man, in this

workshop all genders may participate in all roles. It can be good for someone with a penis to wear a strap-on with a dildo, as for some with a vagina as for everybody. Advice columnist Dan Savage wrote that he believes all men should try pegging at least once, as it may introduce them to a new enjoyable sexual activity and illuminate them to the receiver's perspective in sex.

This workshop is held in English

What happens in the workshop?
First we will do Joe Kramer’s Anal Breathing together, then there will be an intimate, slow performance of pegging. Then there will be a sharing, answers and questions about pegging and the performance. After the discussion there will be an opportunity to try pegging yourself (both from an active or passive perspective). All activity is consensual. There is no obligation to do anything.
 

For whom is the workshop?

This workshop is for the curious and brave of all genders and orientations.

Will I need to bring something, is there a dress code, how do I prepare?

Please bring your strap-on and harness, if you have one. There is no particular dress code. However, if you like, you might like to wear a special outfit to have the experience, for example, something in drag.

Please bring what you may need for safer sex (gloves, condoms and lube), although the festival will have some materials on hand.

Finally, we recommend that in preparation for this workshop you do Joe Kramer’s Anal Breathing exercises.

Is there nudity in the workshop?

This is a clothing optional workshop.

Klara Lotte is an artiste, a furniture-trainer, an art-therapist, an editor of a book about the possibilities and limits of forgiveness, based in Berlin.
 

Klara loves to question, explore and practice the connections and possibilities of humans and objects, dance, sex and language, society, sex and love, plants, animals and Eros, to name a few. As for example in her thesis about the emerging notion of comfort and its consequences for the furniture and the social and love life in the 18th century in France or in performing in Felix Ruckert's "Farm".


She believes that 4 factors are extremely important for how we experience ourselves and what surrounds us, including persons we meet, see or hear. Our past, where we come from, the last 5 seconds or our childhood. Our expectation, how we think the world and the people, for example the people we love, are and might react. Our motivation, what drives us, our vision or aim in this moment of our life. And our attention, where our experience is directed in any moment, for example while sitting in a bus, towards a book we are reading or towards signs of violence in urban spaces. Changing one of those 4 can completely change our reality. Like changing our expectation concerning the shape of the clitoris.

Peter Kimberly Banki, Ph.D founded the School of Really Good Sex in 2015. Prior to that he curated Xplore - Festival of the Art of Lust in Sydney from 2011-2013. He says: “when you are intimate with someone, you see who they are. And that’s when it’s really exciting.  Much more than their competence or whatever, it’s their being. Sex opens up and shows you a being at their most open and vulnerable, whatever their role.”

 

Peter has an extensive background in Iyengar yoga, dance and the martial arts (Capoeira Angola). His somatic and movement practice forms the basis of his work in the sex-positive field.

 

Peter has also been a scholar and teacher of European philosophy and literature for much of his adult life. Philosophers such as Friedrich Nietzsche and Georges Bataille, Anne Dufourmantelle, Avital Ronell and Jean-Luc Nancy have most inspired him in his thinking about sexuality and eroticism. He holds a Ph.D in German studies from New York University (September, 2009). His book The Forgiveness To Come:  the Holocaust and the Hyper-Ethical came out recently with Fordham University Press. He is currently affiliated with the Philosophy Research Initiative at Western Sydney University. Articles about Peter's work on The Festival of Really Good Sex have been featured in many news outlets, including The Guardian, Archer Magazine, ABC Radio National and news.com. He has also been interviewed about the Festival of Death and Dying, which he also founded and directs, on ABC Radio and the Sydney Morning Herald. His work on apology and forgiveness has been featured on 2SER and on the philosophers’ zone on ABC Radio National.
