Time For An Orgy

Jarkko Partanen & Julius Elo

SUN 11:00-13:30

Last year’s “Time for an Orgy” returns!

 

In this workshop we focus on an orgy! Elo and Partanen will prepare the mind and the body to take in the complexity and pleasure of an orgy. Through the exercises, we look at intimacy, presence, nudity, and touch in the sphere of an orgy. The workshop offers a safe setting to examine impulses in a situation where many desires and wishes are present. Even though the workshop has the scope of an orgy, this is not a promise of sex.

 

How to tune into an orgy? How to approach another person? How to navigate in an orgy? How to surrender to pleasure? How to take care of one's own boundaries and those of others?

 

The workshop is open to all genders and orientations, and fits both beginners and more experienced participants. You can arrive alone or with a partner. We work with touch and nudity, respecting the boundaries of each participant. The exercises are done in pairs and groups. Participants are advised to arrive with an open mind.

This workshop is held in Finnish/English

What happens in the workshop?

There is a clear form to the workshop. We proceed to the orgy through exercises. The preliminary tasks shift from looking to touching and from partner work to functioning in a complex group situation.

For whom is the workshop?

Anyone interested in orgies, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. The participants are asked to relate flexibly to the diversity of genders and sexualities.

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

Bring a towel to put on the floor. Dress in a way that you feel comfortable. You can also bring toys of your own.  

Is there nudity in the workshop?

Undressing is a part of the workshop. You can take off as much or as little clothing as you are comfortable with.
