MaXXX Black is proud to present celebrated Massage Specialist Alan Patriarca in a very special workshop about the importance of touch.

Touch is much more than just about initiating sensual experiences. It's a vital part of our daily communication, and many of us forget how to use it to enhance our relationships on every level. This informative and eye-opening workshop will introduce new ideas about touch and present simple techniques to bring back 'loving touch' to your personal relationships.

Discover The Different Kinds of Touch :  touch can communicate much more than sensual interest - it can be used to highlight care, love, intimacy and attention plus open lines of positive communication to many different aspects of a relationship. Discover how to develop a ‘Habit of Touch’.  

Find New Ways To Deal With Stress & Anxiety : Touch can be used by couples to help each other through periods of increased stress and anxiety - learn how our bodies store stress, and develop techniques to bring touch into your care for yourself, and your partners.  

Learn About The Importance of Hugs : It may seem simple, but hugs are a vital part of caring relationships. Learn why this is, and how to utilise different kinds of hugs in your relationships.  

Develop Some Touch Techniques for Lovers : Alan will show us massage techniques that are simple and effective at relaxing each other and opening us to sensual experiences without pressure or misunderstanding. Tap into areas of your body that are naturally sensual yet may not be the obvious starting point for sexual experience.   

Plus, a Q&A where you're encouraged to ask Alan anything!
