Event Details


There is something extraordinarily powerful in feeling and playing with consensual and voluntary pain. Why would a person want to feel pain? Why would another love to give it to someone else? How is pain and the processing of it changed depending on the context and relation it is put into?

In the workshop, Mamana will go into a deep deep deep dive into all things pain and pain play. Together we will trace the history of pain play, and go through the details of what pain actually is, how it is produced and interpreted in the brain and how it is influenced by personal, biological, social, and other contextual factors you can play with. We will go into the details of why people like to give and receive pain, how you can process it, which typical impact play instruments are helpful in inducing a certain kind of painful sensation.

In short, this class will fry your brain with nerdy knowledge and allow you to think about your interest in pain play on a whole new level. Come for the facts, stay for the soul searching of why sadomasochism is fucking delicious.
