Workshops & Play Spaces

Xp08 -130

This year we have expanded our xplore program to over 50 workshops and three additional play spaces...

The Workshops:

The Panel of Pioneers consists of well known heroes and early seekers from different currents of the sexpositive (r)evolution.
Besides a common panel discussion (Panel of Pioneers) we asked them to give their favorite workshop (Carte blanche à...) and be available for an intimate talk (in bed with...).
The Old Stagers represent the most popular and experienced presenters of the xplore family - notorious examples of incorrigible sexual disorientation.
And last, but not least, the department Fresh Meat & Small Fry offers a platter of new names and new concepts.


IMPORTANT:  Please read the notes at the end of this page carefully!  We would also like to ask every participant to bring an own large (sauna) towel with as a pad! Thanks a lot!

The listed workshops are subject to change without special notice.

The Play Spaces:

For the first time this year, in addition to the workshop program, we will also install three permanent play spaces. They are thematically named: CONSTRUCTION / DECONSTRUCTION, SOUND / SILENCE and INSTRUCTION / INTUITION.


(fri + sat 1pm-9pm, sun 1pm-open end)

This is a labyrinth-like ensemble of shacks with an outdoor area and a sun deck, equipped for bodywork, rope bondage and all kinds of massage. xplore guests are invited to come to a meeting point and trade all forms of physical treatments – from academic/professional to improvised/intuitive, supported by a cast of experts. In the same space you also find opportunities for creative expression and play with materials. A café and a smoothie bar complete the setting. A place for manual activities and relaxation, accompanied by gentle electronic music and flute play.

In the bodywork lounge the Cacao Ceremony directed by London Faerie (Saturday, 6pm) and Vagina Way – a Birth Experience by ZohaR (Sunday, 4pm) will take place as well as
the Body Hair Clinik by Linda Priha: three appointments on each day of the festival at 5pm, 5:20pm and 5:40pm  >>> Please register at the Festival's BOXOFFICE.  You can register as a single, a couple or a trio (1-3 people at one session)
Artistic director: Shadow / Musicians: Lorenzo Colocci & Vincenzo Pedata, add. on Saturday Emilio Gordoa


(fri + sat 1pm-9pm, sun 1pm-7pm)

This is a former industrial space suffused with light. Inspired by the concept Ocean Of Other, the monthly new moon play party at schwelle7. Light and sound create a concentrated atmosphere for individual processes, collective actions and deep play. Three exceptional musicians provide tempo, rhythm and color for an ever-changing celebration.
Attention: This is a silent space. No verbal expression, communication only by little notes and messages. To underline the special atmosphere some dressing up is required.
Musicians: Andy Benz, Kay Karl, Jürgen Grözinger


(fri + sat 1pm-9pm, sun 1pm-7pm)

In the former goods station of Alte Boerse the performance KINGDOM (Felix Ruckert, 2006) will evolve. This participatory improvisation theatre piece is based on dominant-submissive roleplay combined with elements of systemic constellation. It invites the audience into a fantasy world – unreal, nevertheless made of flesh and blood. A mysterious queen reigns over a small, but colorful population. Or is she a king? The court is run by a Master of Ceremony, a fool creates chaos and grace, witches and magicians perform strange rituals. A precise protocol regulates the proceedings, positions are assigned, tasks appointed, favors are given and taken away. Punishment and exile await the disobedient subject. For each visitor a specific role is created, he/she is introduced to the sovereign and then integrated into the hierarchy.

Concept: Felix Ruckert
Performer: Danilo Andres, Hashnu Khan, Isabella Lewandowski, Jana Scherle, Julius Elo, Maggie Tapert, Marie Golüke, Ottokar Lehrner, Rebecca Jackson, Reinhard Gaida, Sebastian Fischer, Tarren Johnson, Camille Bowen, Gerard Reyes, Iva Samina, Larissa Sophie Bolz, Klara Luhmen, Mareen Scholl, Nina Peter, Sarah Brodsky, Sarah Sabin, Surjan and others...




Unless otherwise specified, no workshops require nudity or fetish outfit. For most workshops loose fitting, comfortable clothes are appropriate.

All workshops are learner-centred and for every-body. Even though some workshops may be quite physical, sexual contact as such is in no way required to participate and enjoy.

As the event is designed for adults we must emphasise the importance of consideration and self responsibility. Therefore it is obvious that all interactions should be related to the basic principle of SAFE - SANE - CONSENSUAL and practised by Safer Sex. We will ban anyone immediately from the entire festival who offend against this rule, acts reckless or even gets molesting.

Please note: At some workshops it is asked to bring own material (blankets, towels, wash bowls, yoga mats, meditation pads or cushions etc.) - Please check on the respective workshop pages!
