Sensual Arts Festival
The Sensual Arts Fest is a celebration of sensuality and intimacy, for 4 days on the outskirts of Berlin.
Bringing together some of Europe's best facilitators of the sensual arts to create a space of connection and exploration.
We will have 2 workshop spaces running over the course of the event and some delicious evening rituals and events, as well as plenty of time to relax and connect with some new people.
This is a relatively small and intimate festival with a maximum of 80 participants.
This is a sober event, free Oxycontin via cuddles provided by our team.
Sensual Artistry spaces are Sensual-non-sexual play spaces, meaning in the communal areas and workshops we encourage intimacy that doesn't involve genital stimulation and penetration to create a soft space for exploration. However, Self-touch may be included in some workshops.
This is a queer friendly event and a trauma-informed space, encouraging radical consent and empowerment.
The Sensual Arts Fest is a shorter and larger event than the usual Sensual Arts Retreats, but still bringing the same quality workshops and intention for a deep, playful and sensual experience.

I've never been to an event like this, is it a bunch of weird people touching each other? Will I be pressured to cuddle and touch people I don't want to?
Absolutely not! Consent and boundaries are a core part of the experience and a heavy focus in the retreat. We go really in-depth into this and arrange all our workshops so that people have lots of choices on how they want to engage. You're always welcome to just watch or work with yourself if you don't want to participate in any pair/group exercises and there is plenty to do alone! These workshops are a place to explore what is your authentic YES and NO, and we CELEBRATE your NO! We think that boundaries are key to healthy relationships and intimacy so we encourage people to really tap into what is it they REALLY want, whether that is wanting lots of cuddles, massages and touch or if it is wanting to have personal space.
I'm curious, but scared about coming alone and not fitting in or being rejected :'(
This is always a big fear! I remember on my way to my first play party I had a panic attack and felt nauseous for the first half of the night. We have a really dedicated care team who are there to make sure everyone feels welcome, seen and has a voice. Our team are professionals with mental health care expertise- and are super fun and love to cuddle! We have found at all of our events we attract really amazing people who are super loving and open hearted- this kind of event really attracts a special kind of person and we're so lucky to get to receive really genuine people. If you're really worried then jump on a call with me and we can have a chat!
I'm in a monogamous relationship, is this a good space for couples?
We usually have a few couples at least at every event, some monogamous and some in open dynamics. You always have the option to only do exercises with your partner and you don't have to switch/play with anyone else if you don't want to. This experience can be a really beautiful way for a couple to rekindle their sexual fire, learn new tools and skills for exploring their relationship and have a lot of fun together.
I'm queer/old/a POC/trans/disabled/alternative, will I be welcome?
We really aim to welcome everyone and make them feel accepted, seen and held in the container. Our care team is happy to help with any special needs and to talk about any things you need to feel welcome in this space. ALL of our teachers are incredibly open minded and accepting and all are doing our best to be inclusive. We don't do practices based on gender and want to make sure that people feel safe to be themselves. The space is quite disability-friendly with only one of the play spaces and the dorms located up stairs, please talk to us for more information regarding this. If you have questions and concerns then please jump on a call with me and we can talk more!
I'm totally new to all this- is this good for beginners?
This is a perfect entry-level experience for someone who is curious about conscious sexuality, tantra, kink or any other fields. There will be a variety of workshops and things to try, or just watch and learn from the outside! It's ideal to come with an open mind and open heart and give whatever inspires you a try. It is recommended that you have some experience with yoga/meditation as we do a lot of work with this, but if you're brand new our facilitators are happy to give some extra assistance for those who need it and you can take your time, miss some classes and integrate if it's getting too much!
I'm a pro with a lot of experience, will I get anything out of this?
For sure! If you know a lot of shibari there will be other experienced riggers you can jam with. If you're an industry pro you can connect with others and always pick up new ways of doing things. Our team all have years of experience under our belts and are happy to share more and offer options for workshops to take things deeper if you desire, and of course there is lots of free time to just relax and play!
