DAVID vs. Goliath

Small/Weak and Weaponized in Play
With Swen Brandy and Saara Rei
DAVID vs. Goliath – Discover the Power Within You!

This unique 2-day workshop is designed for people who are smaller, weaker, or physically limited and who want to better lead, dominate, or even just surprise their larger and stronger partners in playful and sexual interactions. It is not about pure self-defense but a collection of effective tips, tricks, and tactics from the fields of BDSM, martial arts, body awareness, and body and mind manipulation. The goal is to create more fun, self-confidence, and dynamics for both sides in the play.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to use their strengths and their partner’s weaknesses to take more control and leadership. You’ll gain more insight into your own body and mind as well as those of your partner. Of course, sneaky tricks and manipulation are part of the procedure. Play your game and use your strengths to create advantages with skill, pleasure, and fun, and bring Goliath to his knees. With various exercises and role-playing games, we will also train scenarios that will surely push you to your limits.
The workshop is both theory- and practice-oriented, offering solo as well as couple exercises. Be prepared for demonstrations and some challenges and tasks that need to be completed under supervision.

My Motivation for the Workshop “DAVID vs. Goliath„

As a man who sees the world from the perspective of just 1.63 meters, I know the challenges that smaller people face in everyday life and society, and what it can do to your self-esteem. From a young age, I learned to work with various means to achieve my goals. These experiences have taught me to be creative and resourceful. Today, I have the advantage of looking back on nearly 18 years of intensive interaction with people and diverse body experiences.
My extensive background in martial arts has provided me with not only physical skills but also deeper insights into personal attitude. Over the years, Body Movement, BDSM, and classic as well as extraordinary sneaky tricks have been added. This combination of physical and mental skills enables anyone to develop a natural and fun leadership style.
My motivation for leading this workshop stems from the desire to show others how they can take on leadership roles with a positive attitude and self-confidence. It’s not just about achieving goals but celebrating the joy of creating and designing. Leadership should not be marked by fear of failure or negative energies. Instead, I want to encourage participants to discover their inner strength, not only measured in muscle power but in the ability to create beautiful moments with their partner.
With “DAVID vs. Goliath,” I want to convey to participants that true dominance and leadership arise from a combination of mind and body, but also how unimportant the word “dominance” actually is. It’s about using positive forces and creating a relationship based on joy and dynamic interaction. I look forward to sharing my experiences and techniques and helping participants, whether Tops, Bottoms, or Switchers, find their own unique ways to lead and dominate their partners with my approaches.

In his practice of play shooting, he combines BDSM, fetish, and sex-positive scenarios with photography and film, often resulting in personal challenges and intense experiences for the models. Swen teaches individuals and couples who want to actively and passively engage in sex-positive or BDSM-oriented play and document it with cameras.

Assistant: Saara Rei

I am a workshop facilitator with a background in music, dance, education, and public speaking. My work generally centers around the exploration of suffering, both physical and emotional. Through my own kink practice, I have come to understand that suffering comes from the comparison of what has been or could be to the present moment. I enjoy teaching about how to use suffering as a path to presence and enjoyment in life. With a Ph.D. in mathematics, my academic experience adds an intellectual flair to complement my performative approach to bodywork. Playfulness and humor make up a big chunk of my personality and approach to life, giving the workshops I facilitate an explorative and light atmosphere, even while approaching some of the heaviest of topics.
