School of Love – Role Play Space

(Fri+Sat 3pm-9pm, Sun 1pm-7pm)

For the summer camp of the noted SCHOOL OF LOVE at xplore Berlin, Miss Stellina, headmistress, joined by the irreplaceable Dean Rampling as head of faculty have recruited a list of highly experienced teachers.

Considering the filthy reputation of xplore and the kind of students who attend the summer camp there we expect many of those to be in desperate need of firm direction and a solid education in life skills and appropriate behavior. To our good-willing students we wish therefore not to obscure the fact that there will be many difficult cases in attendance this year.

We nevertheless wish to assure them that we have special methods of testing and controlling difficult pupils, especially those who have a sexual obsession and appetite inappropriate for their age.
