Event Details

Sexual identities are not fixed in any way. They change and transform and evolve constantly….

We might identify as top or bottom or switch or slut or asexual or stone or bi or pan or queer or lesbian or kinky or straight or gay or poly or femme or butch or non of the above „boxes“.

How do class and the way we grew up (in poverty/ middle class / rich and all the places in between) come into play?

During the first part of the workshop, we will talk about topics of class and other social positionings like geography or race as they intersect with one another. This happens with a focus on how our sexual identities are shaped by them. It is not meant as a discussion but rather personal storytelling and active listening. Participants who want to share are asked to talk about their own experiences.

The second part of the workshop is about shame and pride and how we feel them in our bodies. This being a trauma-aware approach, we will start with a guided meditation that helps us ground and sense our bodies. We will find an anchor that keeps us centered and from there explore a tiny little bit of what shame can feel like in our bodies.

It is possible to only take part in the 1st part of the session and to skip the 2nd part – or to watch it later!

Emma Steel (she/her)

Emma Steel spends a lot of time in her garden and by the Havel river. More than a decade and a half of working as a pro Domme and four years of working as a trauma therapist have been the beautiful flip side of her own healing trip, being held by others (also by the more-than-humans). More and more the imaginary binaries of those roles dissolve. She identifies as slut, queer, femme, cis, white, child of a working class mother and a middle class father, witch, forever student, dysfunctional family trauma survivor, recovering activist, sex worker, artist
