Welcome to SEXSIBILITY FESTIVAL

We all have the capacity to experience love, trust, inner peace and ecstasy. Sometimes we just need to practice and get some support and inspiration.

We believe that our world would be a better place if more people would access these states of being together. For the 11th year, we are happy to invite you to an intimate festival focused on intimacy, sexuality, body and soul, providing us with a deeper experience of life, offers healing to emotional wounds and motivates us to change.

We want to create a better existence together and enjoy while we do it. We believe that to be the best foundation for sustainable development and a more beautiful and harmonious world.

 

THE FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE

The festival offers workshops in Sexsibility, Tantra, Taoism, Shamanism, playfulness, spiritual healing and many other things. Workshops are held by esteemed teachers who have been with us in the past, as well as by new international teachers and Sexsibility coaches.

Besides the possibility to take part in inspiring workshops you will find opportunities to explore various sexual expressions, dancing, singing, meeting with new friends and being part of a sharing group. Go for a date in the cafe or playroom, make out, eat yummy and healthy food, enjoy summer, life and each other.

Every Sexsibility Festival offers a unique experience – and yet there is a special atmosphere that characterizes a Sexsibility Festival. We would describe it as a lovely mix of curiosity, openness, grounding, togetherness and joy.

Join us from June 23rd to June 28th 2020

Who can come?

Sexsibility Festival is for you who wishes to find more pleasure in your body, with your partner, in sex and in life.The festival attracts people that have been to several festivals and workshops before, as well as people that are new in their exploration and are eager to experience life.

We welcome you regardless of sexual orientation, preference or experience and with or without partner(s). That is, whether you see yourself as gay, hetero, bi, queer, girl, man, lady, transsexual, virgin, swinger, single, poly, prude, nudist, fetishist, tantrika, vanilla or other.

All over 18 years are welcome. It is usually a lovely mix of open-minded people, of different ages and backgrounds who together create an amazing festival experience.

GENDER BALANCE

Although everyone is welcome at the Sexsibility Festival, we do strive towards a gender balance to ensure a rich experience for all our participants. For this reason it might be that we close the ticket sales for the festival earlier for the gender that you identify yourself with than for others.

Teachers & Musicians

the Sexsibility atmosphere

A relaxed, safe, held, friendly, open-minded and sex-positive atmosphere.

It is a wonderful experience to be with many different people where nudity and sexuality are allowed, accepted and welcomed. A unique space where you can play, explore and learn more about your own sexuality and at the same time feel safe to do so.

Our intention that you will feel safe, and we put great emphasis on that everyone should respect each other’s boundaries and make sure that everything is done with consent. 

Everyone that participates in the festival needs to read and agree upon the Agreement for Sexsibility Festival 2020

We welcome both laughter and tears, and there is a lot of emotional support in different ways. We would like to offer you the opportunity to heal what needs to be healed, train yourself on what you want to become better at and to expand and enjoy more of what’s already works for you. We hope that you will feel that you can to be who you are and become who you want to be.

To improve your sexuality and your ability to feel pleasure can be a wonderful experience on an individual level. But it can also help us deal with the global problems we have, such as environmental problems, conflicts, injustice, racism and so on. Because the root of these problems is often that people don’t feel good and therefore don’t care or act destructively. They have lost touch with their body, passion, lust, empathy, and love. Supporting people to feel more pleasure and love for themselves and everything around them is, therefore, the most important thing we can do to create a sustainable lifestyle where we can live in harmony together.

 

Create a better world, to celebrate and say YES to life, love, and sexuality, together with other people!

NOT “JUST SEX”

Although sexuality is a natural and essential part of the festival, the focus is to meet ourselves and others with honesty, heart-felt connection and play. It is common that sexual encounters occur at the festival, but it happens in most cases after an emotional connection took place – usually during a workshop.

If you come to the festival in order to have “just sex” and are not so interested in change or deeper intimate meetings, it is very likely that you will be disappointed and frustrated. There are other and better forums for this longing. If you come to get in touch with your emotions, to become more present and experience a deeper encounter with yourself and others – with the help of sexuality – the chances are good for you to have a fantastic festival. 

LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS WE ARE

For us, the greatest love is to be able to be ourselves and love other (human) beings just as they are. Our intention is to create a festival with much safety and community. There is also the opportunity to become aware of, embrace and transform what prevents you from really being with another human.

 

 

SAFETY & BOUNDARIES

It is important that you can feel safe at the festival. In addition to having competent workshop leaders, there are daily sharing groups and an emotional support team. All participants will also approve the agreements not to use alcohol or other drugs.

All that happens during the festival, including who participates, is confidential.The atmosphere between the participants tends to be very supportive, friendly, respectful and inclusive.

EXPLORATION, CHALLENGES & INTEGRATION

There will be workshops to explore intimacy through compassionate touch, breathing exercises, healing, conversation, sexual ceremonies and tantric partner exercises. You will get the opportunity to practice communicating, follow your impulses, dare to take the initiative, set boundaries, find your power, be held by another and let go.

For those who wish, there is also the opportunity to explore close encounters through all the senses, spanking, ropes and intense sensations. There will also be dance, yoga, music and meditations on the program as a way to turn inward and be able to integrate your experiences, especially in the mornings and evenings.

Lorenzo Stiernquist

Program Coordinator Sexsibility Festival

In his work Lorenzo focuses on sex, intimacy, spirituality, pleasure and sexual healing.

He teaches at trainings, workshops and also have private sessions. He wants to support others to experience sex and intimacy on a deeper level, to feel alive and enjoy our lives even more. He teaches how you can feel more pleasure, but also how to transform shame, guilt, pain, inhibitions, and blockages that prevent the experience of pleasure. He also coaches and teaches about communication, boundaries, and consent (The Wheel of Consent).

Perhaps his most important message is to embrace and be present with what is, so that we can experience what is really going on here and now, which is love. The purpose of his work is, in other words, to support people to experience more love.
