School of Really Good Sex
Promoting Sex-Positive Culture in Australia
The School of Really Good Sex is committed to developing an art of living, which confronts the shame, guilt, ignorance, fear and suffering around sexuality that many of us today struggle with. Our purpose is to help you—and our society more generally—to become more open, informed, ethical, creative and free when it comes to sex, love and intimacy. The School of Really Good Sex promotes sex-positive culture in the widest sense of the term. Our regular festivals and mentorship programs offer unique opportunities for personal and collective expansion.
Upcoming Festivals & Workshops
Into the Wild is a unique opportunity to experience what it is like to live in a sex-positive space for an extended period of time in a natural bush setting. Into the Wild allows for organic creativity where the participants play a role in developing the program under the guidance of experienced teachers dedicated to play and pleasure. There is a minimal structure of two daily high quality, organic catered meals, and an optional yoga or movement class every morning. The classes offer the opportunity to ground yourself and connect with the group. Everything else is not planned, but develops from day to day, according to the wishes and needs of the participants. There is no further structure, unless it is wanted.
The Really Good Sex Festival is a two day journey like no other. It is a play ground to have new experiences and face your fears and blockages when it comes to love and sexuality. All workshops and parties are learner-centred and for every-body, whether you are young or old, single or in a couple, monogamous or in an open relationship. The festival creates a safe container for embodied, experiential learning, where all activity is based on safety and informed consent.
The Sydney Rope Festival will be a showcase of the best talent in Japanese rope bondage from Australia and around the world. 'Shibari' means 'to tie' and 'Kinbaku' to 'rope bondage', however the deeper meaning of these words do not translate in vocabulary as the portrayal of human emotion and desire, that is the essence of Japanese rope bondage, is both limitless and unable to be restrained by language.
This year, event-goers will have the opportunity to view acclaimed 'Nawashis' (rope masters) from Russia, Vlada and Falco, who have each have carved their own space within both the Japanese and International rope scenes with their dedication to the art, creative brilliance and unique styles.
How do you cultivate love in your life? How do you see the love that is already there? What makes you feel that you are loved?
