10 Sex Celebrations You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

Sex. The very word is equally as alluring and seductive as its physical counterpart. Songs have been dedicated to sex, cults have worshipped it, crimes have been committed in the name of sex and power can be gained from it. They say that the average person thinks about sex every seven seconds (if that’s the case, I need to up my game) and engage in it well, not as frequently as seven seconds, but frequently nonetheless! With so much fascination towards this three-letter-word, it wasn’t long until it was celebrated by way of joyous festivals, where hordes of like minded sexual enthusiasts, exhibitionists, fetishists and the voyeuristic come out to play to explore the many facets and “kinks” of sex.

Below is a list of ten sex festivals from around the globe, most of which are celebrated annually. Starting at number 10:

Turtles: sadistic and kinky

10. The London Festival Of Tantra

“We were just doing yoga and she kinda just fell into my lap?” Pradeep bitterly failed in his excuse.

New in the sex festival scene, the LFoT was established on September 27, 2008 as the first in an ongoing series of festivals to focus on, and celebrate the spiritual aspect of Tantric sexuality. If learning about how to achieve multiple orgasms in a marathon sex session that extends to hours on end with a bunch of embracing and open-minded people isn’t incentive enough to attend, I don’t know what is. Activities include ritual footwashing, massage therapy, color therapy, psychic and spiritual healing and you can also get free hugs with love from a “Squeezy Fairy”. Now isn’t that nice?

9. Sex Worker Film and Arts Festival

You know you want that “Natural Born Hooker” t-shirt. Don’t lie.

Established in 1999, the San Francisco SWF&AF was formed to recognise the accomplishments of sex worker artists and filmmakers and to show work about sex workers and sex industries from around the world. The Sex Worker Festival also provides an opportunity to recognize and honour prostitutes, dancers, adult film actors and other sex workers who have historically been a dynamic part of arts communities. Performance events, parties, art exhibitions, film screenings and educational discussions and seminars all make up this festival’s activities. My favourite porn star in a dramatic puff piece she made herself? This I have to see!

8. Kinky Copenhagen

Extraterrestrial erotica: the next generation of smut

Sounding like a sweetened sex ale that rolls off the tongue, kinky definitely is the word that comes to mind when describing this Danish festival. Held every October, you will find dildos, whips, leather and latex galore as well as many strippers and pornstars abound.

7. Kutemajrvi Sex Festival

Considered the more intellectual sex festival due to professional lectures being given on all aspects of sexuality during its run, this erotic Finnish event will stimulate both your mind and body. Don’t think the sexiest thing you’ll only see here is the word, “intercourse” written on a blackboard, the festival also features your usual, run of the mill sex merchandise stalls and erotic strip shows. Unless the professor was a scantily clad Angelina Jolie lookalike “talking dirty” to a class, now THAT would be another sexy highlight.

6. Extasia

3D porn. Mmmmmm, trippy.

Spawned from the lusty minds of the lovely Swiss folk, Extasia is a massive sex festival that plays host to the world’s most internationally renowned porn stars, where smut revellers can then engage in a meet and greet with their favourite actors/actresses. You can also hang out with the infamous Playboy bunnies and playmates in the Playboy Club Tour and for the ladies, there’s a “Women’s Only Menstrippers Zone”, where every gyration will bring a cheeky smile to your face. The festival also boasts a 3D Sex Cinema, a Fetish Village and offers Tantric sex courses and sex toy shopping outlets for the sexually inclined.

5. Erots

Despair over their failed comeback tour forced The Backstreet Boys to turn to a new creative outlet.

For many, the city of Riga in Latvia is a place unheard or barely spoken of. But in reality, this modest city is transforming into a sexual mecca, much like Montreal or Amsterdam which, every year for the past decade, has played host to a huge sex festival, simply known as “Erots”. Like most festivals, Erots features strip shows, sex toy shops and the like. Be prepared to wait in line though, as apparently queues can reach up to 100 metres or more, all the while suffering Riga’s harsh, cold weather!

4. Eroticon

Lech Kaczynski: Party pooper

The annual four day Eroticon festival held in Warsaw, Poland took a different route unlike its sister festivals by staging “World Sex Championships” from within its venue confines, a controversial highlight of their program. In 2004, Pink Press, the festival’s organisers, were threatened to be prosecuted by Warsaw Mayor (now Polish President), Lech Kaczynski, under the charge of “procuring women”. Kaczynski’s intrusion caused quite a stir and gave the event excellent publicity however, the organisers were then forced to keep this “championship” under wraps and subsequently, removed from the program altogether. Eager attendees of the festival are usually treated to pornographic book & film stalls, lingerie & erotic shows as well as a chance to witness history in the making – the trumping of the current world sex record. I’d hate to be the one cleaning up after this erm, competition.

3. Sex Culture Festival

“Does my butt look big in this?” The only time men in the audience responded with an affirming, “NO”.

Who said the Chinese were a conservative bunch? The Sex Culture Festival was conceived in 2003, where admission was free of charge until it reached its third year – the charge rising up to 10 yuan, the reason being to keep visitor numbers down and to keep sexually intrigued children out. Activities range from talks on birth control to pleasure toys, a photo show on sexual health and eugenics, forums on sexology, quizzes and lingerie shows. Bad news for the citizens of Guangzhou though as admission has apparently gone up to 30 yuan recently, triple its usual fee. Boo.

2. Madrid Erotica Festival

The heavens parted and Natalia’s ethereal glow stunned onlookers.

The famous Madrid Erotica Festival, formerly known as the Barcelona Erotica festival, is a yearly event held in the month of June. Raunchier than its rival festivals, the MEF summons to its grand stage over 150 porn stars from all over the world to do, well, what pornstars do. Festival goers are able to watch live orgies and steamy sex shows ranging from gay, straight or mixed and check out lingerie, BDSM and other fetish related expos. If you’re looking to get more involved in all the sexy fun, you can enter your own porn movie into their annual competition and share your “masterpiece” with the world. Only 30 minutes is allowable though, don’t get too carried away. Showoff.

1. Sextival

Catwoman finally got the upper hand. Bruce Wayne happily complied.

Israel held their very first sex festival, aptly named Sextival, at Hanger 11 in the northern Tel Aviv port on February of 2008. Started by former Israeli model, Nitzan Kirshenboim, a 32 year old mother of two, her goal was to raise a healthy awareness of sex amongst the masses instead of keeping the issue out in the dark. A bold move, considering the conservatism of Israeli society and only speak of sex in hushed tones. The festival showcased sex toys for both men and women, erotic lingerie, strip shows and even some Playboy bunnies who were bombarded by autograph requests. More sex and awareness of sex in the Middle East may spell more peace. One can only hope.
