Pain Lab

Presented by Rae Goldman and Pholi

Get to know your nerves—intimately—in this hands-on, experimental workshop taught by kinky science educators. Through mapping all different kinds of sensations, you will test, describe, and manipulate your own senses of pain and pleasure. Take away a map of your pain. Learn to communicate your loves and limits better, try new sensations over every part of your body, and/or learn what your bottom really means when they say OW.
