Event description

ASSFEST is BACK! And BIGGER!!!

And we’re offering it to you, Melbourne...

Are you an erotic explorer keen to immerse yourself in community, connection and practise?

Or perhaps a curious newbie intrigued, excited and perhaps a little nervous to play with others?

We got you boo. We've designed our Melbourne ASSFest to be a choose your own adventure, a space of infinite possibility unique to you. You can go deep (hehe) or you can just pop in for an afternoon and learn some cool tricks. 

We're all about that pleasure, but pleasure is political! We're on a mission to spread sexual knowledge, combat shame and stigma, and facilitate a shift in culture. We dream of a world in which we understand our bodies, own our sovereignty and claim our pleasure. 

A little more about us...

ASSFest is a series of collaborations between a philosophically/ethically aligned collective of educators in the realm of the erotic, esoteric and embodiment arts from across Australia. 

A two day immersion into intersections of consent, kink and sacred sexuality, our aim is to promote the holistic integration of these forms through the lenses of a variety of practices. We welcome diversity in our approach and forms held within a shared container of rigorous ethics and personal accountability.

OPENING NIGHT

We're planning a little shindig on Friday the 12th of April at a private venue close to the festival site. If you're a facilitator, helper, sponsor or attendee, you'll receive the details of this event a little closer to the date. Featuring performances by Kitty Obsidian and Infernal Desire Machine.


WORKSHOPS

18!!! That’s right, oodles of choice. You can pick six. Here is the link to the workshop schedule with more information on the workshops and facilitators!
