In 18plus LAB leer je alles wat je op school had moeten leren maar nooit aan bod kwam. In deze editie gaan we aan de slag met role playing om de grenzen van onze intimiteit af te tasten.

POP! is about people who love and have sex with
balloons. There will be no balloons and no sex in
this game, but keep love in your heart.Β 

Looners, as they often identify, are real people, and so are you
and your co-players. Take care.

What is a role playing game?

This type of game isn’t a competition.Β 

*Much of your previous experience with games (such as videogames or sports) may have been competitive, with winners and losers. However, not all games are like that. When you β€œplayed house” as a kid. One kid would play the mom, someone else would play the little brother, another kid would play the mail carrier, and you would act out everyone’s roles on a typical day at home.
*Contrary to popular belief, role playing games don't have to be about knights, wizards, and fighting.Β 

*Much like any other medium of artistic expression, a role playing game can be about any aspect of the human experience.

In the upcoming role playing game we will play with the erotic and sexual.
This can be a charged and emotional topic, so before the game we will outline ways to be safe, to encourage others to explore and collaborate through play, and to allow players to control and calibrate their own experiences.Β
