Sankktuary in the City – Review

Sankktuary in the City. A new one for us most certainly. Three workshops were lined up for us to enjoy: sex positions, kissing and a yoni and lingam massage demonstration.


Already well-practised at those things, we went into the day wondering what else we could possibly be taught?!

We arrived at a wonderful and easily accessible location in Covent Garden, where we were met by the gloriously smiley Kitten L. We were shown around and led downstairs into an intimately lit studio with only a few other couples present. It was surprisingly quiet and yet tranquil, with plush blankets and pillows laid out for everyone.

Looking around, all the couples seemed encased in their own little bubbles; romantically caressing, whispering and holding each other before the first workshop kicked into action. Our lovely hosts (Morgan and Catherine) gave us all an overview of their experience of studying and teaching the Kama Sutra and Tantra, alongside a rundown of what we could expect from the workshops. Unlike a typical KK party, this was a mostly clothes on event – at least until the third, climactic workshop. They were delightfully engaging, and it was clear how much they personally enjoyed the sensual sides of pleasure.

Workshop No1 – Sex positions.

We were open minded about this workshop. Having thought we were rather experienced and well versed in positions, we felt we had a good grasp on what the workshop would cover; we were wrong. Multiple sex positions were demonstrated with the emphasis being placed on sensation and what effects small differences can make. Our hosts demonstrated how minor changes to body positions, movement and attentiveness could have a major impact on sensation. Morgan and Catherine were particularly great at explaining the aspects and perspectives from both the male and female point of view. Whilst we have great sex, we don’t often discuss different positions to this level of detail! We all have our favorite positions but how many have discussed, in-depth, the reasons why and what makes them our preferred position? And how a slight change in the positioning of a knee or your hands can elicit completely different sensations. After each demonstration from Morgan and Catherine, and in our couples, we flexed, contorted and showed off our newly learnt techniques. It was
really fun and having spent an hour running our hands over each other’s bodies, limbs tangled in passion, it was hard to resist just ripping each others’ clothes off right there and then.
A quick sharing session and talk thereafter, our delicious lunch arrived, laid out by our fabulous KK hosts. Whilst devouring the delectable spread, we got to know more about the other couples present and what experiences if any, they have had within the KK world.

Workshop No2 – Kissing.

As with the first workshop, many different types of kisses, their techniques and purpose were discussed and demonstrated. The passion exuded from our hosts and added to the allure in the room. Once a vast number of kisses had been covered, it was over to us. At this point we could have been the only people in the room, with our focus and attention being placed solely on each other. We played with and teased each other with many different kisses, including the use of fresh fruit and lovely Wild bubbles. We paid special attention to our own aura, touch and how we projected ourselves to heighten the sensuality and effects. As time was called, the silence was deafening. Hot, sexy and flustered couples gazed upon each other and simply grinned from ear-to-ear. We weren’t the only half-stripped couple feeling hot under the metaphorical collar! It was playful, sensual and unequivocally sexy. So often kissing is just foreplay to sex, and it was exciting to spend time just focusing on the art of it.
After this, a break was needed! It would have been far too easy to selflessly continue and wind each other up into a greater frenzy, but alas.

Workshop No3 – Lingam and Yoni Massage.

Finally, the most eagerly awaited workshop had come about. Neither of us were inexperienced in receiving and giving massages but, as we all should know, a sports massage isn’t exactly ‘pleasurable’, unless of course one of you is a sadist and the other, a masochist… [insert devilish grin]. Our hosts talked us through the session with passion and enthusiasm. Demonstrating the lightest, nerve-tingling touch on each other, they discussed the importance of ‘conscious touch’. Not just absent-mindedly patting your partner’s arm, but thoughtfully caressing, feeling their warm skin beneath your fingertips. With everyone’s consent, naturally, Morgan caressed up and along the arms of the ladies, whilst simultaneously, Catherine showed the men how a gentle touch on the arm could ignite their entire bodies. Each couple got a chance to witness and experience both for themselves and their partners. Our turn… Oils at the ready, lights down low and with sexual tension very apparent, the ladies undressed and got comfy on their backs. Catherine delicately guided the male partners with a soft voice, allowing the ladies to relax and let their minds and bodies float away in the sensations. It was incredibly romantic, and you forgot other couples were massaging their partners in the room with you. Gradually and with the utmost elegance and grace (ha!) we moved our body positions and began massaging the more intimate areas, the guys catching a passing glance with each other as if to signal “are we doing this right?” Based on the gasps and quivers of the women before us, I’d say yes! From the Kitten’s perspective, it was incredibly arousing to be touched gently, almost delicately, but with clear intent. I felt so relaxed and gradually the pleasure built, flooding through me in waves of increasing intensity before culminating in a crescendo of climax. A few minutes of full body strokes and murmured feedback followed, and then it was the turn of the men. Catherine prefaced the men’s session by emphasizing that the goal wasn’t to achieve orgasm, but to build pleasure. Eyes closed and mind open, my partner began slowly and with the most exacting touch she could give, caressing and massaging my body all over. I was shocked! “Well, this is different” I thought, my body tingling as I allowed myself to relax and drift into the sensations I was experiencing. After a short while she re-positioned herself between my legs and drew focus onto my intimate areas. I began to mentally will-on the experience, until I had a change of thought and simply relaxed – this experience was not about climaxing or reaching the ultimate turned-on state but to simply enjoy and allow myself to fall into my partners hands and adore her touch. Almost immediately I felt a surge to my groin and electrical pulses shot down my thighs, it was absolute bliss! After a final winding down and sharing session, we all redressed, gathered our belongings and made our way out. Feeling wholesome and content, we strolled back out into Covent
Garden, hand in hand and eager to head home and put some of our newly learnt techniques to the test…

Kissing & Too Hot To Handle: A Personal Essay

Final comment:

Sankktuary in the City is great for those couples looking to re-ignite some fire, enhance their connection and explore the depths of their intimacy, and for those simply wanting to delve further into the eroticism and sensual sides of Tantra and the Kama Sutra. We highly recommend throwing caution to the wind and giving it go!

P.S Thanks again to our hosts Morgan, Catherine, Liana and the extended KK team for a great day!
