Enter a wonderland of delights where every touch sensation you can imagine (and even a few beyond your wildest dreams) are laid out for you to explore. Let Ted and Monique, two of the most sensual beings on the planet, guide you on a journey where your fingers do the talking. Accept our invitation to expand your capacity of pleasure and sensation. We will include a wide array of touch options from intimate to mundane, including feathers, furs, sound, breath, glass, leather, steel, stone, a few surprises, and whatever you might bring. We will explore both touching and being touched for your own pleasure, taking turns to fully focus on giving and then on receiving touch. You'll have the opportunity to practice asking for the exact touch that you are craving in any moment. We will dive into sensations: hot wax/cold ice and play with blindfolds to experience what it's like to be touched when a sense is taken away. We will also explore movement as Ted leads us through some fun solo and partnered movements, and Monique helps you move from your deepest desires, playing follow the leader, and flirting with your body. This event is all about sensations, we are going to take people on a journey of touch from breath to rose petals, feathers, earth, air, fire, water touch, to paired touch, a full three hours guiding the attendees through touch of self, touch of others, being touched by spirit…We will weave an exquisite tapestry of delight as we experience a myriad of physical sensations.
