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 this one-day workshop, Mamana will guide participants slowly into the world of playing with giving and receiving pain (switching is possible but you can get deeper if you stay in your role). Not only will we explore how pain play works and what to take care of when engaging in pain play. We will also go into more depth about what your individual desires are, what kinds of pain and headspaces you are seeking and how to get there and back in a safe-ish way. This workshop will cover a lot of practical aspects but we will emphasis intentions, modes and actual play. You can approach this class from an S/M, D/s, or neutral perspective, meaning you do not need to identify as a sadist or masochist to engage in pain play. Your reasons can but do not have to include any kind of power dynamic, either.

The class will be held in a trauma-informed, accessible way. We will make any and all adjustments you need and want and find very individual ways of play for everyone involved.

And: there will be aftercare cookies and chocolates.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid, queer, intersex, asexual, aromantic, agender.

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgement to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
