Come and enjoy 6 days designed to encourage and honour male pleasure in a beautiful west coast rainforest. Relax and embrace your Authentic Masculinity.

All of our Apollo staff are Certified Sexological Bodyworkers and Somatic Sex Educators. We are here to support you in your pleasure journey,  offer guidance to enhance your experience, and nurturance to heal Wounded Masculinity.

When we have the opportunity to learn about our bodies, learn what we like and how we like it we can expand our relationship to pleasure. We can bring more presence into our interactions with ourselves and our partners than we could ever imagine.

BODYWORK SESSIONS

Day 1: For your pleasure

Introduction to bodywork; learning to ask for the touch you want. How can we make this better for you?

Day 2: exploring the prostate

If desired, include diving into internal pleasure as part of your session.

Day 3: Blissed and relaxed

Moving between high excitement and sensuous enjoyment states; prolonging the pleasure experience, using breath and movement to push your edge. 

Day 4: 4 handed body worship

Two muses to one body; allow yourself to settle into your own godliness.

DAY 5: BUILD YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

Using the tools learned throughout the week, design your closing session.

We can offer the embodied insight that the penis is not a phallus - not - or not only - a symbol of power and privilege - but a sensitive, vulnerable, soft compilation of tissue, nerves, blood and skin. We invite quiet contemplation of sexual sensation, and celebrate wild expressions of sexual pleasure. There are few men who do not find this form of erotic interaction healing, affirming, and liberating.
