In his third and fourth workshop at xplore Don Esteban will be assisted by Felix Ruckert. They will combine the practices of Anal (or Vaginal Massage) with flogging. Both practice are about opening, expansion and surrender. They provide empowerment by letting go of control. Very enlightening on both a physical and metaphysical level. Come and enjoy!

In this workshop we will play in trio constellations, one person being the protagonist that is flogged and massaged by two others. You can come to this workshop already as a trio, but you can also attend as a couple or single person. We will then ask you to form trios with other participants.
