How can we approach the big ominous terms in kink and intimacy?

In the vast field of kink, sexuality, and intimacy we encounter them on almost every step. Nothing seems to be able to hide from them; if we meet them, they are often the reason for heated debates and absolutistic claims about their meaning. They are the big terms for relating to each other and many seem to be convinced that their meaning is obvious. But what is behind terms like pain, shame, sex, identity, and alike?
In this workshop, Barkas and Addie present a hands-on discussion of what deconstruction means and what a productive deconstruction of several big terms of the rope and kink world could look like. There will be exercises but not necessarily with ropes.
