Are you looking for a place that is held with integrity, that is inclusive and welcoming, yet where you can play with your sexy fantasies, kinky desires, and tantric meditations – or just come for an organic cup of tea and chocolate?
Don’t look any further. This is a Temple Night, or the Red Play Party as created by Exploring Deeper: a day of sensual, luscious exploration in an all-embracing environment of like-minded people!
This day includes opportunities to:
. take part in a different workshop each time by amazing facilitators (e.g. bondage, energy sex, neo-tentric practices, kinky explorations, etc.)
. practice impeccable consent and play with the B-SMART tool for safer intimacy
. experience your Inner Navigation System and how it tells you what (not) to do
. have an amazing evening out, dress up, flirt, dance, cuddle, massage, play – ar whatever suits your mood. We are equally friendly towards vanilla, tantric and kïnky folks, the sexy $luts and the shy ones, the introverts and the extravagance.
. get to know amazing like-minded people in the best way! We usually host a very diverse crowd that is of mixed ages, gender, experience levels, and backgrounds.
MOST IMPORTANT NOTES -> READ THIS FIRST!
➤ This event is a wonderful first play party to go to, ánd we recommend at least some experience in sex-positive spaces. You should be comfortable (though absolutely not obliged to participate in – on the contrary) with nudity and explicit action in the space. Experience with workshops related to tantra, kink, touch, cuddles, etc will do (email/pm Wilrieke if you are not sure whether this is for you now).
➤ Be aware that these spaces zoom in on your ease & challenges. You need to be comfortable with that.
➤ We will send you an email with practical information a few days before the event. make sure to sign up with your most used email address (when you have unsubscribed from our newsletter, our emails can’t reach you).
This is an event covering the afternoon ánd evening. During the afternoon there’s a workshop given by Wilrieke Sophia. The evening consists of a freeflow play party where you can design your own sweet, sexy, or other experience, maybe inspired by the wide range of toys and tools we provide (sponsored by the amazing Tailboneshop!).
FOR WHO IS THIS EVENT?
This event welcomes folks from all walks of life. We are LGBTQIIA+ informed (Wilrieke and most of their team identify as such), slut-friendly, trauma-informed, and non-monogamy informed. White folks are overrepresented in our team and life experiences are colored through that lens. We do come from different social backgrounds and have different life experiences when it comes to health, wealth, neurodiversity, gender, sexual orientation, etc.
We welcome people with specific needs as much as able-bodied folks. Feel free to reach out if you have specific needs that you wish to share with us.
WHAT THE DAY LOOKS LIKE
The doors open half an hour before the starting time. Make sure to be on time! Once we have started we cannot let latecomers in!
During the opening circle, Wilrieke will welcome you all. We will start with exercises to land, get to know each other, and learn to notice what our desires and boundaries are today (the more often you do these exercises, the better you get at them!). The afternoon workshop is explained in more detail below. For this part of the day, people keep at least their undies on.
After the workshop, there is a break with home-brought dinner and time to prepare for the evening. Between dinner and the evening program, there’s an optional explanation about play party etiquette and the toys, tools, and materials we brought (recommended for everyone new to our play parties). The evening starts with dancing and some exercises to smoothly transition to the freeflow part of the evening. Half an hour before the event ends, we gather in a closing circle.
ABOUT THE AFTERNOON WORKSHOP:
You don’t need to take your clothes off to have amazing sex. You don’t need to touch your genitals (or even any part of your body) to have amazing orgastic experiences. Regardless of our gender or sexual preferences, we all have receptive and penetrative qualities that we can use in all kinds of fun ways.
This workshop is for both pragmatists and spiritual folks (I speak both neuroscience and woo-woo), singles, couples and other relationship constellations, folks and constellations of any gender, sexual preference, newbies, and more seasoned practitioners.
Expect a playful workshop where we will explore the possibilities of what can happen when we enlarge our spectrum of energetic play.
Potential partial nudity during the afternoon, but undies on.
ABOUT THE PLAY PARTY
After dinner, there’s the optional safer sex and play party etiquette talk for those who are new – or just as a reminder. There’s space for you to ask your questions.
We slowly start the program with dancing and some exercises again. This transitions into a free flow where you design your own experience. The team and I are available for support and inspiration – or a chat at the bar.
You can bring your own toys if you want, or try out some of our extensive spread of toys, safer sex materials, and more.
A play party is for you if:
You are sensually, erotically and emotionally savvy enough to play nicely with others. You’re a good sharer, you take good care of (y)our toys and you use your words. You are somebody who knows your own wants and boundaries and can communicate them clearly, and/or you’re someone willing to work and explore these areas for your own growth and enjoyment! You treat yourself and others with respect and kindness.
If you’re reading this, thinking, “I would love to come, but I don’t want to play,” PLEASE COME and enjoy the pressure-free company of like-minded individuals and exit whenever you wish. Really. There will be no pressure for you to do ANY activity at this party at any time.
Our biggest request is that you come with a fun-loving, warm, caring, open-minded, generous, thoughtful, compassionate, non-judgmental attitude and that you conduct yourself with the highest level of integrity possible.
Come relax. Come smooch. Come play. Come watch. (You know us: voyeurism is participation!)
All genders, bodies, and orientations are welcome. This day has no expectations or requirements. It is a space to be expressed and celebrated, to explore! You are welcome with all that you bring and who you are – at this moment.
This event is NOT for you if:
. you are not willing to accept another person’s ‘no’
. this is an event for people with at least some experience in s-positive spaces, and/or workshops on topics like tantra, kink, BDSM, cuddling, or other forms of intimacy. You should be comfortable (though absolutely not obliged to participate in – on the contrary) with unclothed people and explicit action in the space. (When in doubt, send Wilrieke a message to check in whether this is for you).
. we actively stand for inclusion. This means that in the event no racism, discrimination, misogyny, ableism, or shaming of bodies, sexualities, gender etc are tolerated. If this is something you cannot commit to, this is not your community.
. we accept all political viewpoints and personal opinions, but we also actively stand against the spread of misinformation and disinformation. If you are looking for places to share your viewpoints on vaccine shedding, this is not your community.
. you are looking for easy sex. You won’t find it here.
This workshop space is called Awananda. Mind that Play Utrecht also gives workshops in the same building and hallway. Awananda is behind the double doors.
The elevators in this building are out of function – the owner won’t fix this to our regret. There are stairs to enter the building. On the ground floor is an all-access bathroom. The workshop is on the first floor. There are two stairs to get there.
There are several bathrooms on the first floor (no all-access bathrooms), and a kitchen with lunch facilities, including a fridge and a microwave. There are mattresses in the workshop space. There is no shower.
