Wish PowerExchange 2015

The summer of 2015 will see the sixth annual Wish PowerExchange Summer camp for women, trans and intersex people interested in BDSM and fetish! Wish invites you to a thrilling week on the west coast of Sweden, filled with kinky happenings and activities, play areas, workshops, performances and demonstrations all located in fantastic surroundings to explore. Also note that a week after the camp Stockholm Pride starts, which makes for a perfect opportunity to really get the most out of a stay in Sweden!

Unfortunately our webpage isn’t updated for the camp for 2015 yet, but most information on there is also relevant for this years’ camp. The price will be adjusted somewhat due to a raised rent for the venue.

Date

The camp will take place from Monday the 13th of July to Sunday the 19th of July. In order to promote a good atmosphere we would prefer if the participants stayed for the whole duration of the camp. This means we will prioritize those who register for the whole period. Registrations for shorter time periods will be most welcome provided there is room.

Place

The camp consists of a small set of houses and buildings on the west coast of Sweden, surrounded by beautiful nature and close to the town of Smögen, as well as Nordens ark, an animal sanctuary for endangered species (http://www.nordensark.se/en/). It is in walking distance to a picturesque beach perfect for swimming. Directions to the location will be sent upon confirmed booking and completed payment.

Who will be there? 

All Wish events are open to all women, trans people and intersex people. This means that wherever you feel you lie on this spectrum you are most welcome to Wish PowerExchange. All who attend will be asked to respect this.

Also, as with last year, there will be a couple of our Wish extended family working as on site staff and supporters who may be cis-identified men. They will keep their distance from the events and the camp as a whole but will be around should we need as they provide essential support and maintenance as well as access to the leather workshop throughout the week. They respect us and our space and we expect attendees to continue to show them that respect too.

Would you like to contribute? 

The camp is a communal space run by us for us and there may be circumstances when we need everyone to pitch in.

We are always open to suggestions on workshops that you would like to offer. A Rope Workshop and a Group Role Play workshop are being planned for and those who are interested to contribute are very welcome.  Also, if you can think of anything to help make this space extra fabulous such as decorations, games, happenings or anything please let us know!

 

Registration

Registration for the camp will open shortly but you can e-mail wishpowerexchange@gmail.com and let us know you are interested in early registration. Later on you will be asked to provide all necessary information in a formal registration process.

Hope to see you all this summer!

This means we will prioritize those who register for the whole period. Registrations for shorter time periods will be most welcome provided there is room.

Price
The cost of the camp is 2970 SEK (Swedish Kronor), and that includes both room and board. If you are willing to help by for example working in the kitchen, do maintenance work or with cleaning, we can offer a reduction in the fee in relation to the time volunteered. We have limited reduced-rate spots reserved, so please state clearly on your registration if you would like to be considered for this and please register as early as possible.

Place
The camp consists of a small set of houses and buildings on the west coast of Sweden, surrounded by beautiful nature and close to the town of Smögen, as well as Nordens ark, an animal sanctuary for endangered species (http://www.nordensark.se/en/). It is in walking distance to a picturesque beach perfect for swimming. Directions to the location will be sent upon confirmed booking and completed payment.

The premises
The estate features spacious shower- and bathrooms. There are washing and drying facilities for clothes as well. On the yard there is a bathing tub (hot tub) where you can take a relaxing hot bath in the summer evening. Inside the main building there are three rooms – two big and public spaces with several stations, and one smaller lockable dungeon in the basement with a booking system for especially private encounters. Each space is equipped with all kinds of furniture and equipment for s/m and bondage play, such as a bondage chair, whipping benches, metal poles, St. Andrews’ cross, winches in the ceiling and an old fashioned bed. At times there will also be one small intimate cabin available situated right next to the hot tub.

There is also plenty of open and social areas and a large dining room and of course bedrooms. Since the estate has an enclosed yard, there are also possibilities to play outside – perhaps by a tree? – and
weather permitting we will also have furniture and activities planned outside. Following the success of certain themed events (such as our Wish Schoolroom and the Prison Day) we also may be able to arrange themed areas such as a classroom or medical area. If you have any suggestions or wishes, the sooner we know about them the more likely we may be able to work something out. Furthermore there is a well-stocked leather workshop available for those who want to make their own toys or clothes. A leather smith will be at your disposal, and you can either bring your own materials, or buy on site.

Rules
We ask that everyone familiarize themselves with the rules (and of course follow them). These have been put together to ensure everyone’s safety, security and comfort while at the camp. A list will be sent out with payment information.

Sleeping arrangements
Bedrooms are shared, with four people in each room. There is also space to put your own caravan, trailer or tent in the yard if you prefer. Depending on the number of participants, there may be a possibility for groups or couples for example, to get their own rooms. Please tell us when you register if you want to be on the list for that option. We cannot guarantee that it will be possible but we will do our best to accommodate you. All the participants must bring their own bed linen and towels. (For those of you who have a luggage limitation please let us know when booking that you will need to rent bed linen at an additional small cost and it will be provided for you!). We will also ask you to clean your rooms before departing.

Meals
Meals are included in the fee. Breakfast is served from about 9:00-12:00 am, and there will be a light meal around 3:00 pm. A two course dinner is served around 6:00 pm and is an occasion when some take the opportunity to dress up but it is not a requirement. Fruit and snacks will be available throughout the day. We will do our best to accommodate the needs of special diets such as allergies, etc. but you MUST state your needs clearly upon registration. It is essential that we know your needs BEFORE Monday the 16th of June, or we may not be able to accommodate them!

Alcohol
There will be a small self-service bar available at low costs, supplied with non-alcoholic beverages and a limited variety of alcoholic beverages such as beer/wine/cider. There will be other basic beverages available free of charge, for example coffee, tea, milk and of course water.

Language
The camp is international, and therefore communications will be in English to accommodate all our guests travelling from all over the world. If you require a translation, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Disability access
Unfortunately, the camp may not be well adapted for some people with mobility impairments since it is partly situated on a grass slope. The majority of the facilities have level access (though some bedroom areas and the hot tub have step access, and some doors may be narrow). We do aim to find ways to participate for everyone, so if you have any specific questions regarding accessibility, please do not hesitate to mail us at wishpowerexchange@gmail.com.

Activities
On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday there will be workshops/presentations/demonstrations/peer-to-peer knowledge sharing taking place, most often during the afternoons. All the activities will be held in English when possible. There may also be massage available for an additional cost. If you have any special skill or knowledge that you would like to share, we welcome suggestions for lectures, workshops, and demonstrations of all kinds. Please write to us at wishpowerexchange@gmail.com.

Further and continually updated information about planned events during the camp will be posted at: http://wishpowerexchange.se/

Internet access
There is a wireless Internet connection at the estate. It may however be very weak occasionally, so please note that we cannot ensure a 100 % reliable connection at all times.

Registration and payment information

administrative costs. After this date we will not be able to repay the fee due to a cancelled booking. This is because the event is run strictly on a NON-PROFIT basis and your fee will have been already

Here is a short introduction:

Celebrated as ‘spanktastically superb!’ by Bizarre magazine, Rosie Lugosi is a mistress of musical mayhem. She is an electrifying comic cabaret singer, one of the UK’s most in-demand femme-cees, and certainly the kinkiest.

She revels in subversive parodies of Andy Williams, Shirley Bassey and Gloria Gaynor (to name a few poor victims) in a queer-vamp-fetish style. She has appeared throughout the UK as well as Europe and the USA, and sings with cult goth band The March Violets. She features in both Rachel Adams’ photography project The Modern Lesbian, and Femmes of Power (Del la Grace Volcano & Ulrika Dahl). Also the winner of the Dada Award for Performance Artist of the Year and the Erotic Oscar for Solo Performer

Also note that a week after the camp Stockholm Pride starts, which makes for a perfect opportunity to really get the most out of a stay in Sweden!

Wish – A New Year and a New Constitution

As you may be aware, this year saw a change in the Wish constitution, to make as explicit as possible who we cater for with our events and activities. Wish continues to grow as a Swedish non-profit BDSM and fetish organization and this year we specifically amended our written constitution to explicitly include all those peoples and communities that we have felt were always welcome at Wish but perhaps it was not clear enough before in writing. In short, Wish events are open to all women, trans people and intersex people. This means that wherever you feel you lie on this spectrum you are most welcome to Wish PowerExchange. All who attend will be asked to respect this.

Also, as with last year, there will be a couple of our Wish extended family working as on site staff and supporters who may be cis-identified men. They will keep their distance from the events and the camp as a whole but will be around should we need as they provide essential support and maintenance as well as providing access to the leather workshop throughout the week. They respect us and our space and we expect attendees to continue to show them that respect too.

Date
The camp will take place from Tuesday the 17th of July to Sunday the 22nd of July. In order to promote a good atmosphere we would prefer if the participants stayed for the whole duration of the camp. This means we will prioritize those who register for the whole period. Registrations for shorter time periods will be most welcome provided that there is room.

Price
The cost of the camp is 2900 SEK (Swedish Kronor), and that includes both room and board. If you are willing to help in the kitchen or with cleaning we can offer a reduction in the fee. For each day you offer to help (max 3 hours of work per day) we offer a 250 SEK reduction. We have limited reduced-rate spots reserved for this purpose however, so please state clearly on your registration if you would like to be considered for this.

Place
The camp consists of a small set of houses and buildings on the west coast of Sweden, surrounded by beautiful nature and close to the town of Smögen, as well as Nordens ark, an animal sanctuary for endangered species (http://www.nordensark.se/en/). It is in walking distance to a picturesque beach perfect for swimming. Directions to the location will be sent upon confirmed booking and completed payment.

The premises
The estate features newly renovated, spacious shower- and bathrooms. There are washing and drying facilities for clothes as well. On the yard there is a bathing tub (hot tub) where you can take a relaxing hot bath in the summer evening.

Inside the main building there are two rooms – one big and public with several stations and one smaller and lockable for privacy. Equipped with many kinds of furniture and equipment for s/m and bondage play, such as a gynecologists chair, bondage chair, whipping benches, metal poles, Andreas’ crosses, winches in the ceiling and an old fashioned bed. Since the estate has an enclosed yard, there are also possibilities to play outside – perhaps by a tree? In the basement there is a lockable dungeon with a booking system for especially private encounters. We also have some possibilities to arrange especially themed areas such as a classroom, if you let us know in advance of you preferences and wishes. Further there is a well stocked leather workshop available for those who want to make their own toys or clothes. A leather smith will be at your disposal, and you can either bring your own materials, or buy on site.

Sleeping arrangements
Bedrooms are shared, with four people in each room. There is also a possibility to put your own caravan, trailer or tent in the yard. Depending on the number of participants, there may be a possibility for groups or couples for example, to get their own rooms. Please tell us when you register if you want to be on the list for that option. All the participants must bring their own bed linen and towels. (For those of you who have a luggage limitation please let us know when booking that you will need to rent bed linen and it will be provided for you!) We will also ask you to clean your rooms before departing.

Meals
Meals are included in the fee. Breakfast is served from about 9:00-12:00 am, and there will be a light meal around 3:00 pm. Dinner is served around 6:00 pm. Fruit and snacks will be available throughout the day. We have some possibilities to accommodate the needs of special diets such as allergies etc. Please state your needs clearly upon registration.

Alcohol
There will be a self-service bar at a low cost supplied with non-alcoholic beverages and a limited variety of alcoholic beverages such as beer/wine/cider.

Language
The camp is international, and therefore the official languages will be both English and Swedish.

Disability accessibility
Unfortunately the camp is not well adapted for wheelchair access since it is partly situated in a slope. We do however aim to find ways to participate for everyone! If you have any specific questions regarding accessibility, please do not hesitate to mail us at wishutskick@gmail.com.

Activities
On Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday will workshops/presentations/demonstrations/peer-to-peer sharing of knowledge most often take place during the afternoons.

Info om Wish PowerExchange 19-24 juli 2011

     Posted on tis ,07/12/2010 by Lilaa

Wish PowerExchange – sommarläger på Västkusten den 19-24 juli 2011

Sommaren 2011 arrangeras för andra gången ett läger för BDSM och fetischintresserade kvinnor, alla som är, har varit eller kommer att bli kvinnor!  Wish bjuder in till en spännande, aktivitetsrik vecka på Västkusten med helpension, gott om lekutrymmen, flera workshops och fantastiska omgivningar att utforska. Det är också ett utmärkt tillfälle för MC-intresserade att samlas utifrån att man är införstådd med och respekterar lägrets BDSM- och fetischinriktning. En vecka efter lägret startar Stockholm Pride så det är också ett perfekt sätt att ladda inför Priden!

Datum
Lägret anordnas 2011 under vecka 29, från tisdagen den 19 juli till och med söndagen den 24 juli. Under veckan finns personal som hjälper till med driften av gården och är införstådda med BDSM- och fetischinriktningen. För att främja sammanhållningen ser vi helst att deltagarna är med under hela lägret. Därför prioriteras vid anmälan de som har möjlighet att vara med alla dagar. Övriga är varmt välkomna för den tid man vill och kan komma med, men i mån av plats.

Pris
Lägeravgiften är 2700 kr per deltagare. I detta ingår inkvartering med helpension och tillgång till alla gårdens faciliteter. Det finns möjlighet att reducera avgiften med 250kr/per dag om man kan arbeta deltid under lägret, med exempelvis handräckning i köket, städning eller hålla ett föredrag några timmar om dagen. Det finns ett visst antal platser avdelade för detta och du anger vid anmälan vad du kan tänka dig att göra.

Plats
Vi kommer att vara på en lägergård på Västkusten med närhet till dess vackra natur och pärlor som Smögen och turistmål som Nordens Ark. Gården ligger på gångavstånd från en naturskön badplats. Vägbeskrivning skickas vid bekräftad anmälan och full betalning.

Gemensamma utrymmen
På gården finns nyrenoverade dusch- och toalettutrymmen med gott om plats. Det finns tvättmaskin och torkställning. På gården finns en vedeldad badtunna för avkoppling, kanske både före och efter diverse aktiviteter.  BDSM-salar med möbler för s/m- och bondage, t.ex. gynstol, elektrisk takvinsch, bondagestol, piskbänkar, metallstolpar, Andreaskors och madrasser finns inomhus. Eftersom gården har en omsluten, insynsskyddad innergård finns även möjlighet till aktiviteter utomhus bland annat vid skampåle eller träd! I källaren finns en separat, låsbar dungeon med bokningssystem för mer privat samvaro. Utifrån önskemål på förhand har vi i viss mån möjlighet att arrangera specialutrymmen som t ex Klinik eller Skola. Det finns även en välutrustad läderverkstad med erfaren instruktör att tillgå, för de som vill tillverka egna leksaker eller kläder. Man kan i viss mån köpa material på plats eller ha med sig eget.

Boende
Boendet är till största delen av vandrarhemskaraktär i fyrbäddsrum. Det finns möjlighet att ställa upp husvagn/husbil på gården för de som vill. Beroende på deltagarantal kan det finnas möjlighet till egna rum för exempelvis par/grupper/triader, ange i så fall denna önskan i din anmälan. Ange även om du/ni vill bo tillsammans om era anmälningar görs separat. Alla deltagare tar med egna sängkläder och handdukar och städar sitt rum innan avfärd.

Måltider
Måltiderna är inkluderade i lägeravgiften. Frukost serveras c:a 09.00-12.00 och fika vid 15.00. Gemensam middag serveras c:a 18.00 varje kväll, då det finns tillfälle att klä upp sig för alla som känner för det. Frukt och snacks kommer att finnas tillgängliga dygnet runt. I viss utsträckning kan vi tillgodose behov av specialdieter vid allergi etc. Ange detta tydligt vid anmälan.

Alkohol
Bar med självservering av alkoholfria drycker samt ett litet utbud av vin/öl/cider till självkostnadspris kommer att finnas på plats.

Språk
Lägret har en internationell inriktning och språket kommer därför att vara både engelska och svenska. Vi hjälps åt med att översätta när det behövs!

Funktionshinder
Lägergården är inte så rullstolsvänlig eftersom den delvis ligger i en sluttande terräng, men det mesta går oftast att lösa. Mejla oss gärna på wishutskick@gmail.com, om du har specifika frågor om lokalernas eller lägrets tillgänglighet!

Aktiviteter
Under onsdagen, torsdagen, fredagen och lördagen kommer workshops/föredrag/demonstrationer/kunskapsdelningar av olika slag (exempelvis magdans, poledance, bondage, piskteknik, queer teori eller psykisk dominans) att hållas under eftermiddagarna. Alla workshops kommer vid behov att vara engelskspråkiga.

Anmälan/betalning
Sista anmälningsdag är 30 maj. Om det är fullbokat arrangeras en väntelista för eventuella avbokningar. Avbokning kan göras fram till 3 juli på grund av sjukdom eller andra allvarliga händelser och avgiften kan då återfås med avdrag för administrativa kostnader. Avbokning efter detta datum kan göras men tyvärr kan inte lägeravgiften återbetalas då.  Anmälan/bokning, frågor och funderingar kan skickas till: wishutskick@gmail.com.

VIKTIGT! Ange tydligt i anmälan: Fullständiga namn, födelsedatum, adress/kontaktuppgifter och allergier/dietbehov för alla personer anmälan gäller. Ange även information och önskemål om inkvartering. Den som gör inbetalningen ska ange sitt namn och hur många/vilka inbetalningen gäller på ett sådant sätt att vi tydligt kan koppla anmälan till inbetalning!

Betalning sker till Kulturföreningen Wish konto:

Countdown – less than 4 weeks left!

     Posted on fre ,25/06/2010 by Lilaa

With only a month to go before the camp begins it is really exciting to realise that there are going to be an amazing week with many interesting participants and a programme that offers multiple possibilities to realx, play and explore – yourself as well as the others…

Here is some highlites so far:

Mollena Williams – International Ms Leather Pride 2010 and BDSM educator will bring us workshops and talks on many interesting topics such as Negotiation for the Hopelessly Shy & the Terribly Awkward, Playing with Strangers: How to get it on at a Con!, Beautiful Intention, Gracious Focus: Bringing Service to Life, The Psychology of Psychological Play. These are only a few of her  regular classes and you can read more about them on her blog The Perverted Negress.

Ingo – created Wotever World in London 2003, and run different events/clubs within this organisation as well as the Queer sexclub Klub Fukk. Klub Fukk is a safe meetingplace including all the different genders and sexualities that unites as Queer. At Klub Fukk Queer Porn is showed and since a few years they show their own films. Made and produced at the club. At Wish Powerexchange Ingo present a workshop and you will have the possibility to see some of them and also create your own if you want to. It is also a great opportunity to get inspiration and advise about the wide world of Wotever!

During the week we will also be joined by a bondage instructor that will litterally show us the ropes – make sure you bring your own if you have them!

Apart from all the possible sexercise you might get into and the making of your own clothes and plesure paraphenalia in the leather workshop under possible guidance from one of Swedens most experienced craftsmen during your stay, there will also be other lesiures available!

An expert on yoga and meditation is participating and have offered to act as an instuctor during the week for those who wish to explor this.

We are bringing two sea kayaks with safety equipment for those who want to feel the seaside from another perspective. There are experienced users present that may coach beginners.

We are also hopefully expecting a massage expert and a makeup artist specialised in extreme designs as well as the daily beautification. That would provide a perfect complement to the photosessions available by renowned fetish photograher Susanne, the artist behind the internet site A Thing for Rubber (http://www.a-thing.se),who will be taking photos of professional studio quality if you want to. If you already are sure that you want to do a photosession it is possible to book it in advance to be sure that you get your prefered timeslot! Send us an e-mail about it at wishutskick@gmail.com.

For all of you who have yet to make the final details and your friends that has just decided to come, here is the info about registration again:

Latest news on the summercamp the 21th-25th of July

     Posted on mån ,31/05/2010 by Lilaa

Its getting closer by the day now! The Swedish westcoast is getting ready to greet a queer and playful group with their sights set on Wish Powerexchange Summercamp!

We can drop a few teasers and tell you that renowned fetish photograher Susanne, the artist behind the internet site A Thing for Rubber (http://www.a-thing.se), will be taking photos of the guests who want to have their picture taken on the last eve of the camp, so be sure to pack your favourite fetish outfits, folks!

We have also invited partyfixer Ingo, from the team behind Wotever World (http://woteverworld.com ), who is currently involved in a queer pornproject, filming the activities on klub fukk in London. Ingo will be holding a workshop on queer porn during the camp.

The leather workshop will be up and running, with a craftsman guiding those who want to make their own toys how to make for example their own cane, tawse or bridle. For those of you who got hooked on mud after the mudparty  we can also let is slip that we have a giant rubberfloat prepared for messy fun like wrestling or making out in a pool filled with  j-lube or mud.

All of this is just a few of the options to choose from during the stay and all is of course based on voluntary participation!

There are still vacant rooms on the camp, so be sure to register and seize this unique opportunity to make international contacts, play in well-equipped dungeons, sunbathe on a secluded beach or simply hang out with like-minded people on the veranda or in the outdoors bubble pool!
