In this workshop we will discuss and explore why people Role Play, what it can bring to your intimate relationships in terms of deepening connections, trying new things and doing so in a shame free playful space that allows you to leave behind the expectations of your everyday roles in your own life and society at large. Bringing together our own professional experience and creative ideas, we will take you through how to make your own scenes, from picking a scenario, planning the scene, negotiating with your partner(s) and how to create a character for yourself that you can return to time and time again if you wish. There will be space for practical experimenting, with the option to indulge in the wide selection of toys, tools and props that the studio has to offer.
