Dark Eros Dojo Presents: The Art of the Rough-House


Body handling, creating energy, and roughhousing is the fastest way to create stronger bonds that last longer. It is also somatically healthy and healing for the body. Furthermore, when engaged in this activity, the brain secretes loving energy hormones, Oxycontin, serotonin, and endorphins which could happen at different points in the activity and for different reasons, depending on the participants.

This is what we are here to discover for ourselves. I will be your guide through this path of ordeal we are creating in order to gain greater insight into self and our partners -- communicating deeper, obtaining stronger connections that foster sustainable, healthier, honest, intimate, relationships.
