Photo Hagen

Hagen has loved to tie up people for forty years. Even as a boy, ropes, knifes and needles were more appealing to him than Soccer and Company. His special favourites were "Interrogations" in dark cellars and playing "indians", complete with dares and totem pole tortures.

Always searching for perfection, his studies have taken him to the Far East where binding people became an art form.

In 2001 he founded "SAGA - Bizarre Kunst und Kulturwerkstatt" in Berlin out of a desire to unite art, craft, and commerce on the base of a common erotic interest: BDSM.
As a skilled master he also works at the notorious AVALON, a professional SM-Studio, where he teaches the art of bondage to curious couples and introduces women to the world of lust and pain.

His Workshops:

Learning the Ropes

The basics of erotic bondage.
The joy of bondage consists of the fact that the person who is tied up can completely let go, fall into his/her feelings and just accept what the partner is doing. She/he no longer has to think about her/his own performance as a lover of feel guilty about being passive. The person who is actively binding feels lust because of the total power over the partner. The increase of power frees him/her of inhibitions just as powerlessness liverates the person who is bound. To play with bondage absolute trust is a must:
responsibility on one side and the ability to abandon on the other.

Hot Wax

A special candle light dinner for the skin. For the fans of Hot Wax it causes an exremely erotic sensation, both because of the intermingling of heat with other kind of stimuli and because of the unpredictability of exactly where the drops will fall.
In this workshop we will try out the whole variety of how different candles can "burn". From relaxing - yes, that is possible! - to truly hot, there are lots of possibilities. And of course important safety tips:
not all candles are the same....

Sensory Deprivation

Here you will learn all about the infinite possibilities of sensory deprivation, from the simple covering of the eyes to the complete mummification. Out of the overabundance of stimuli in daily life, the recipient is projected into a silent cosmos, where he alone exists and where all his attention is directed toward inside. As the borders between the real and the imagined become blurred and the feeling for time and the material world becomes lost, longer sessions can cause changes in awareness. Therefore it is important to agree on a certain length of time beforehand.
