Event Details

Time to upgrade some of the most important kink and life skills!

The general idea of consent and boundaries is often portrayed to be as simple as offering someone a cup of tea. However, in reality, it is much more nuanced and complicated, especially when considering our intersectionalities, different contexts, and power structures. And then what? Holding boundaries also sounds rather easy but how do you know what your boundaries are and how can you hold them with grace and without making them into walls that cut you off? And how do you negotiate your play and other events when life is messy and emotions are involved?

Caritia will guide and support participants in solo, paired, and group exercises to get to grips with what consent, boundaries, and negotiation means to you, how it can be understood, and applied in everyday situations, and the mindsets that can open you up to more playful interactions with others. Let’s dive in, get messy and acknowledge the dimensions.

The workshop aims to get to know yourself and your boundaries more deeply.

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 proactively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.

If you cannot afford the ticket price (even the solidarity price), please send us a message. We will find a way.

Caritia

About Caritia: lives as an LGBTQAI+, gender-fluid, BiPoC (assigned female at birth) individual. Walking a path with invisible disabilities and the living challenges which accompany that life. Educator, creative and ongoing work in process, whose advocacy for establishing boundaries is as strong as the desire to love with truth and honesty. On a quiet mission to destigmatise difference and return power to each individual. Using the language of kink to the point of geeky excitement. Caritia’s fascination with the root/the body stems from a longing too deeply ‘listen’ to (her) body holistically, from the inside out.caritia@karada-house.de
