||The Curiosity Play-Space and Sunday Session is ONLY for people who have previously attended the Curiosity workshop.
If you have not completed the workshop, please go to the events tab on our Facebook page to find the next one.
Curiosity is a very unusual exploration of sexuality, self-development, and liberation. It is an experiment in community and self-development that uses sexuality as a starting point.
Curiosity consists of three main parts: A workshop, a play-space, and the Sunday Sessions.
The workshop is your first port of call. You cannot attend any other activity until you've done the workshop - however, once you've done the workshop, you can enjoy the other elements of Curiosity as often as you'd like, knowing that everyone around you is coming from the same base in terms of language, attitude, and agreements.
THE WORKSHOP (generally on a Saturday afternoon) includes some discussion, training, and practical exercises relating to communication and consent. It includes:
* Boundary setting, and working out what you are and aren't interested in.
* Tools and practical exercises in communicating your interests and boundaries.
* Safety issues (ranging from the emotional through to the physical).
* How to approach and communicate about sexuality and relationship concepts.
In short, the workshop prepares you with the information and attitude you need to conduct yourself well, and enjoy yourself, at the play-space. It is, by itself, a decent instalment in your journey of self-discovery.
THE PLAY-SPACE (generally on a Saturday evening) is a "sex-positive" space, simply meaning that a lot of forms of self-expression are welcome. It is often described as being a space where adults learn to play again. You are encouraged not to put any pressure on yourself to have any particular kind of experience - especially if it's your first time at Curiosity. The play-space has a mood and feel that is generally light, accessible and friendly, and where you are welcome to simply chat and observe. But if you are feeling adventurous, you'll quickly come to appreciate the shared language and culture around consent and safety.
THE SUNDAY SESSIONS pick up from where the previous day's workshop left off. It includes reflections and discussions about the Play-Space, integration of what you learned, reflections and celebrations, and future goal-setting. The Sunday Sessions often include special and profound conversations, and for many people is the best part of Curiosity.
The first time you do Curiosity, you must do the workshop, the play-space, and the Sunday Session. After that, you are welcome to attend the play-space as often as you like, but are also encouraged to continue attending the Sunday Sessions (for free) since this is where so much learning and community building happen. It is common for the community to collectively go to the pub after Sunday Sessions.
Curiosity's Play-Space generally happens on the second weekend of every month, with workshops for new people happening every second month - keep your eye on the calendar.
INTENSITY: At least three out of four chillies. This event is run as safely and cautiously as possible, however the content can involve challenging material for some people.
WHO FOR: People that have already taken their first steps into the world of their sexuality (or that strongly relate to how this is pitched). People of any gender or sexual orientation. People that are interested in expanding and extending themselves. People who enjoy a lot of consciousness and consent in their adventures.
WHO NOT FOR: People looking for a slow first step on their journey of self-discovery. Also, at the other end of the scale, highly experienced / hard-core BDSM folks might not find this the right spot for their self-expression. Curiosity is not for people uncomfortable with a diversit

Saturday evening - clothing that expresses your sexuality.
||You may sit out of any activity, or participate only to a level that's right for you. There is no expectation that you will want to play at the play-party; you are welcome to observe only. There is no expectation you will get naked.
