Are the questions unanswered, or the answers unquestioned?

We acknowledge that you may have many open questions when preparing for an intimate workshop and we would like to make it as easy as possible for you. To support you beforehand, here we answer some common questions that we hope help you to feel more comfortable, informed and safe. For all unanswered questions, feel free to reach out to us at any time.

What kind of people join our events?

This work (and play) is for anyone with a body and a curiosity to learn, no matter where you are at in your (s)exploration. Bring your humanness and come as you are. We are open to and respectful of all people joining our workshops and courses, and we try our best to use language that is inclusive of all genders and pronouns. We are aware that there will always be blind spots and room for improvement – if there’s something we missed or you have ideas on how to make our events safer or more accessible to you, please let us know.

If any questions or doubts come up, always feel free to reach out to us – we love to support you!

Can I join your events solo?

Sure you can. We aim to create a brave and safer space that is open to everybody. As a solo participant, you have the world of connection at your fingertips and for partner work you will pair up with someone you meet at the event. We ask that participants stay open to doing practices and exercises with people of the same sex/gender. People often close this door very quickly and thus can only experience a fragment of the world we are offering.

That said, we respect your boundaries and are aware of potential resistance. So please talk to us if you have any questions.

Can we join your events as a couple/pair?

Yes, definitely. In the workshops, we will also discuss and explore exercises around relating. The general idea is to dive deeper in your relating, to communicate transparently, and to reconnect and explore more in sexuality and intimacy.

As a couple/pair, whether romantic or not, we invite you to talk about the workshop setting before the event. You should be clear on whether you will only do the exercises together, or if you are also open to practicing with other participants. This helps to lessen the uncertainty for you in the workshop setting.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

What if something is too much for me?

It is important to respect your boundaries and those of other participants, for us this is a priority. You can always say no if something feels too much – this is completely okay and encouraged. We emphasize consent in our workshops, and it helps to remember that if it’s not a full-bodied YES, then it’s a no. Maybe also means no. If you simply feel resistance and need assistance, we are there to guide you through the challenging moments so that you can let go of anything that may be holding you back from enjoying your full pleasure potential.

What if I’m financially unstable right now?

A price should never be a barrier to attending a workshop. If your financial situation is difficult right now, please reach out to us detailing why you can’t pay the full price and together we will find a solution.

We ask for honesty and if you simply find the price too high, this is not a valid reason to reach out for concession. We ask fair prices for the work we offer and we do not negotiate.

What about substances?

The intention of our work is to meet each other on a real and sober level, without our everyday masks, without additions, distractions or escape routes. For this reason, our events and private bodywork sessions have a strict NO SUBSTANCES policy. This means no alcohol or mind-altering substances prior to or during the event. If we notice that someone is under the influence of any substance, we have the right to send them home. We acknowledge that substances have their time and place, however, we feel that the work we do with Touched has its own medicine to offer, without incorporating anything supplementary. We understand that you may be nervous, and we fully encourage you to embrace the feeling, show up in your full authenticity and share it in the space. It’s likely that you’re not the only one who feels this way, and your vulnerability inspires and allows the same in others. We invite you to come home to your body, instead of finding ways to vacate it. This is intimacy – into-me-I-see. We’re in this together, we got you!

Do you have any more questions?

As we said, each person may need different information to prepare for a workshop and feel supported. Please reach out to us if any details are unclear or unanswered. We are happy to give you all the information you may need.
