anal voyage

“Many many men don’t feel empowered or have enough
knowledge about their ass . . . it’s nothing that’s taught in
school,” says Phillip Coupal, counsellor, coach and body
worker. Coupal runs a series of workshops for men that
deal with various aspects of sex and sexuality. “In San
Francisco there are ‘sexological body workers’ and there
are ‘sacred intimates’ . . . all these people who will take you
on an erotic voyage. There’s very little of that [in Toronto],”
he says. A recent workshop dealt with genital touch, and
one in December will focus on being multiorgasmic,
but his upcoming workshop plunges into the tight but
receptive void of anal touch. “There is a lot of shame and
mythology about the ass, and this workshop will help
people gain a more conscious knowledge of it,” he says.
Coupal conducts an initial consultation with
prospective attendees, making sure they are suited to
this type of group situation. The workshop itself begins
on Friday, with experimentation and discussion to dispel
performance anxiety; Saturday involves introspective
exercises and conversation; and on Sunday, attendees are
paired off with random partners (this particular workshop
is not for couples) for some caressing, fi ngering and maybe
some play with toys. While Coupal occasionally holds
workshops that involve trans men, this particular event is
only for men who were born with male bodies.
Coupal stresses that while the workshop is very sexual
in nature, it is not a free-for-all sex fest. He says that often
“an orgy’s energy level will go up really high and might not
be as consensual or personal as this workshop will be.”
