Part of Hotbed: a festival of sex, running from Tue 25 April – Sun 14 May.
Presented by Jane Welsh from Je Joue & Kitty May from Other Nature
Have you ever wondered if your sex life is normal? From pegging and wanking to squirting and spanking, sometimes it seems like everyone’s doing it – but are we even sure what “it” really is?
In our sex-satiated society, uncertainty about sex may be the last great taboo.
On the front-lines of sex-positive sexshops in London and Berlin, sex educator and therapist Kitty May and MD of sex positive brand Jane Welsh have learned a thing or two about human sexuality.
Take a step into their world, where weird and wonderful questions are welcome, and curiosity triumphs over shame. Are you normal? You’re about to find out.
Please note this event takes place in our basement space and is regrettably not wheelchair accessible.
