Vulvarama Wonderland

Stella Topaz

11.00am - 12.30pm Small Room

Exploring the wonderland of vulvas; for people of all bodies. Come on a vulva wonderland tour; an opportunity to look, learn and explore with peer collaborators who offer a guided tour for the greater good! Be introduced to a wonderful variety of vulvas, meet a cervix or two, and ask questions and share information freely, with a focus on erotic anatomy, pleasure and bodily experiences related to vulvas. We can all benefit from better understandings of our own and each other’s erotic anatomies, whatever the body we inhabit.

 

This workshop is all about respectful, inquisitive, consensual exploration related to vulvas. For people with a vulva: there will be opportunities to explore your own vulva – through breathing and awareness, sound and movement, touch and sensation, using a mirror, and maybe a speculum. You might choose some, none, or all of these.

 

You might choose to explore solo, or invite someone to form a pair or small group with you, to collaborate together. Your choice, your pace.

For people without a vulva: after the whole--‐group activities, you may be invited to join a pair or smaller group by people with a vulva, or you may be asked to join activities with the facilitators during that time.

 

The focus is on providing a lovely space for people with vulvas to freely explore, and for people without vulvas to participate in consensual, collaborative ways.

Come to the Vulvarama Wonderland!

A Womb For Every Body

Jennifer Lee

1.45pm - 3.15pm Big Room

Unless you are a bird or a reptile reading this, chances are you entered this world via a womb. It is a physical place of immense capability and scientific wonder that houses, nurtures and nourishes human beings before massaging them out into the world. 

 

But the physical dimension of the womb is just the beginning. The womb is also an intangible place of power and potentiality, a place of creativity and unmanifested magic that goes beyond gender and physical body make-up. Far from being exclusive to those in female bodies, the mystery, power and blinding wisdom of the womb space can be accessed by Every Body. 

 

Imagine living life and making love from a place of void-like originality, where each step, each touch, each interaction with ourselves and each other, comes from a place of innocent newness, free from pre-conceived expectations or outcomes. This potential for aliveness and radical creativity in life and eroticism is waiting to be unlocked.

 

Come play with us in this experiential workshop where we will tickle the surface of the boundless and bountiful landscape of a Womb for Every Body.

Love The Skin Your In

Rebecca Rose
3.30pm - 5.30pm Small Room

This workshop is about how we love ourselves and what that really means. When we think of touching ourselves, we generally assume it's a sexual kind of touch, but we touch ourselves frequently, every day, with little or no conscious thought. This workshop will look at a different way of touching ourselves, which is somwhere in between those 2. It's a more conscious, thoughtful and nurturing way of touching our bodies. The kind we might like from others, for example, when we feel like a hug.

What might you get out of this workshop?

•       A greater sense of your own value

•       Insight into why other people's touch can sometimes feel irky and what might be behind that

•       Tools that will help you honour and nurture your own needs in an ongoing manner

•       A sense of playfulness and fun around all the ways loving yourself can look

•       Insights from experiences that others may share
