What is really good sex for me uniquely? And what I need to do–or not do–to make it happen? And what is the relation of sex to who I am? And the rest of my life?

The Sydney Festival of Really Good Sex is a place to learn, play and think more about such questions. Our aim is to provide an inclusive, safely held, experientially based, above all creative, informed and ethical alternative to what is currently on offer in the contemporary Australian landscape.

Beginning in Sydney in 2011 under the name Xplore, the 2016 edition is the largest and most comprehensive program we have ever produced. There will be four full days of interactive workshops and activities as well as two performance nights and a party.

Some of the most innovative teachers in Australia, the United States, France, Belgium and Japan will be part of it.

The festival will take place at the Rex Centre in Potts Point. The venue is fully air conditioned with many spacious rooms, close to public transport, affordable parking facilities and restaurants.

In any given workshop it will always be permissible to say ‘no’ or not participate. For most workshops loose fitting, comfortable clothes are appropriate. Unless otherwise specified, no workshop requires nudity. All workshops are learner-centred and for every-body–young and old. It is rewarding to come alone and/or as part of a couple. Even though some workshops may be quite physical, sexual contact as such is in no way required to participate and enjoy.

When you buy your ticket now at a lower price, you will have nothing to fear if it turns out later that for some reason you can’t come. We will help you to resell your ticket by publicising it at a later date when the ticket prices are higher. No-one has ever been caught out in the 4 year history of the festival. We expect that the 2016 edition of the festival will sell out, as it did the 2015 edition. Book_Now_Button_Blue


* Over forty workshops, films, talks, performances and party over five days.

* A chance to meet genuine innovators in the field from the United States (Joseph Kramer, Ph.D. & Annetta Luce), France (Lukas Zpira), Belgium (Inbal Yalon), Japan (Satomi Zpira), Singapore (Martha Lee, Ph.D) and Australia (Deej & Uma, Jacqueline Hellyer, Dragan Zan Wright, Simon Copland, Mista & Irie, Rosa Ilinka McGill, Emma Michelle Dixon, Ph.D., Peter Banki, Ph.D.).

* Three full evening programs (Friday Performance Night, Saturday Performance Night and Tuesday Party)

The festival is a unique opportunity, if you want to:

* be more confident and trusting in your desire;

* let go more and find the courage to discover new things;

* have and maintain clearer boundaries with others;

* discover and connect with others who are asking themselves similar questions;

* find a compatible partner who knows and accepts you for who you are;

* integrate your sexuality in healthy and reflective ways with the rest of your life.

“…by far the most intelligent and diverse sexuality festival in Australia. The workshops are varied, fun, interactive, and inclusive and the atmosphere is just wonderful.” – Cyndi Darnell

“…it changed my life and gave me a sustained optimism about what it is possible to experience in this realm.” HS (participant Xplore 2013)
