We are currently planning our next festival which will take place 23-26 January 2016. Sign up to our mailing list to receive updates.

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

Xplore Festival Sydney proposes a new festival whose topic and question is really good sex. Many of us believe in the necessity for an inclusive, experientially based, safely held, above all creative, informed and ethical alternative to what is currently on offer in the Australian landscape.

Some of the most experienced teachers from Australia, Europe and the United States have been part of it.

The festival location is The Drill, 1c New Beach Road, Rushcutters’ Bay, Sydney.

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.


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

* A chance to meet genuine innovators in the field from Germany, Austria and the UK (Frank T Khani & Sheila Crux, Ruby May), the United States (Janet Hardy & Annetta Luce) and Australia (Gala Vanting, Deej & Uma, Helena May, Cyndi Darnell, Dr. Emma Michelle, Dr. Peter B.)

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

The Festival of Really Good Sex is an inclusive place to open and learn more about your sexuality in one of Sydney’s most beautiful locations. It 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)
