Intimate Encounters : Liquid Looove

Creating a safe space to explore intimacy, sensuality and sexuality

Powered by I AM SEXUALITY on behalf of Tenclub

 

Intimate Encounters is a ‘sex-positive’ evening for curious minds researching intimacy, sensuality and sexuality with thyself and the other. We discourage using alcohol, drugs and having sexual intercourse or oral sex on the event, except for the designated ‘touch & explore’ area. Please respect.

 

Intimate Encounters is born out of the desire for a place in Amsterdam where one can feel safe and free to explore the diversity of our sexuality surrounded by flowers, pleasant smells, a marvelous decor and beautiful souls.

 

This event is part of Tenclub, a society where all members are focused and fascinated by what being Human is and pursue their curiosity together to co-create and discover their humanity.

 

Membership of Tenclub is not mandatory to join the event.

Opening Ritual
Coen Aerts will open Intimate Encounters with a practical talk, followed by a welcoming ritual. Think about greeting each other non-verbally, breath-work, setting intentions and drinking cacao ceremonially.

 

Liquid Looove (LL)
Burning Man enthusiasts will know what this means. Imagine yourself laying blindfolded in a see of oil and bodies, listening to heavenly tunes. As the music starts the gliding begins.

LL is a sensorial experience guided by Sven Mönnichmann where you are invited to move and allow yourself to move without intentions or sexual orientation. Relax into the real time, real space sensations without craving pleasant feelings or denouncing less pleasant ones. A meditative way of exploring the sensuality of flowing skin to skin contact by observation. Arousal may happen and the goal is not to do anything with it, just let it be. Sven, Coen and Morgan will be the ‘Angels’ that ‘hold the space’ to keep it as safe as possible.

N.B. we have only 20 spots available, 10 male, 10 female. We will make a selection to provide an optimal balance of ‘LL virgins’ and more experienced participants. Buying a ticket for Intimate Encounters does not guarantee joining the LL and tickets are not refundable.

 

Tantra workshop
This will be an introduction to tantra workshop. More info to be announced.

 

Bondage workshop
The ‘Let’s Play Bondage Workshop’ is hosted by Mr. Vikthor Tantrico who some might remember from the last edition of sexTALKS. He is an educated tantra and BDSM master.

This workshop will investigate how to play with bondage as part of the tantric path. It will cover:  The rules of the game, – Different ways of bondage, Tools us can use, Ropeworks.

 

Spa
The hammam and bath will be open, feel free to enjoy yourself there at any moment from 21:30 onwards. Bring a towel and soaps/salt/scrub if you like.

 

Nepco cuddlespace
Lennart Vader will share his dreamscapes together with vocals of Laura Sestri. This blend will be perfect to fill the cuddlespace with lovely tunes. Kat Kreeberg will whisper spicy poetry in your ears if you’re lucky.

 

Touch & Explore Space (T & E)
Sexual excitement is a strong force. Exploring this field with others is interesting and we like to create a space for it while respecting the boundaries for others. Therefore, only on the top floor sexual intimacy is welcomed. Entering means respecting the ‘(sl)ettiquette’ below.

Sletiquette T & E:

  • Respect the 20 min ‘Conscious Gong’ interval.
  • Hearing the Gong means stop what you’re doing; center yourself removed from the person you were interacting with; sit up straight; close your eyes 1 min.; follow the guided meditation; eye-gazing with partner 1 min.; continue or stop.
  • Make love SAFE, with consent and hygienically.

 

To make this an exploration that feels safe to everyone, also people without any experience visiting an intimate event like this, we listed principles that we value as organisers and rules that we’d like participants to respect. If you can’t find yourself in these, this might not be an event for you.

 

Principles we value
♥ Radical inclusion; try to make anyone count,also if you feel no attraction for the person, rather be curious why there’s none.
♥ Gifting; make an effort to share your love without expecting anything back.
♥ Radical self-reliance; be aware of yourself, what you need and try to be a responsible, proactive person.
♥ Radical self-expression; feel welcome to show and share your being as it is.
♥ Communal effort and participation; Intimate Encounters is a research we do together. Participate, share with and care for others. Help making it happen, don’t consume, collaborate!
♥ Leave no trace; keep the space clean as you found it at arrival.
♥ Immediacy; make the moment count. Share your feelings and urges as they arise in a respectful way, don’t be afraid for the outcome.
♥ Consent; take your time in escalating sensually/sexually, ask/check for consent.

 

Event Rules
♥ You are responsible for your invite (if one of you misbehaves both leave).
♥ Respect a ‘no’!
♥ Tapping twice means ‘no’!
♥ Code-word ‘Ten Tree’ means EVERYBODY FREEZES. This is an emergency call and means that someone is either sexually assaulted or dying!
♥ No phones, no pictures.
♥ No drugs, no alcohol.

 

House Rules
♥ No glasses in the spa.
♥ Clean your own mess.
♥ Keep the fire burning.
♥ Be careful with the house.

 

Angels
If something happens during the event that you’d like to share privately with someone, go to one of the Angels. They will make time for you, listen and might be able to help. During the opening ritual the Angels will show themselves.

 

Tickets
This first edition we have 40 tickets available that will be sent invite only by the organisers. This to make sure that all participants are people interested in the field and practice of study/experience. Organisers will be personally responsible for their invitees. Ticket price will be €31 – Link to ticket store

 

The event is non-profit, all income will be spent on costs. Organisers nor artists are payed for their invested time. The goal is that future events might permit a minor compensation for artists and organisers. Next events all participants of the first edition are asked to bring a ‘buddy’ from the opposite sex that they seem safe and likely to join the experience.

Everybody is responsible for a buddy; if one of the two misbehaves, both are asked to leave. Creating a safe space to explore intimacy, sensuality and sexuality is a continuous effort ans serious task for all participants. Hopefully you understand our precaution!

 

Dresscode
Wear anything you like, keeping in mind that you might explore yourself and others in an intimate way. Maybe something comfy and sexy would do. As long as you feel good. As the hammam and bath will be open, bringing a kimono or bathrobe is advisable. If you want to join the spa, bring a towel. If you are joining the Liquid Love bring an extra old towel to rub off the oil.
