Programme

The Sugar and Spice Festival aims to change the belief that people raised in traditional societies are unable to express themselves when it comes to sex – what are their preferences and attitudes. Perhaps it is their conservative upbringing or the fact that sex has often been a taboo topic not to be spoken at home. We endeavour to impart positive messages and learning around sex, sexuality and sexual wellness. We want to empower participants to listen, learn and find wellness. 

Throughout this festival we will work to change the mindsets of the participants, freeing them from any cultural norms that have resulted in low sexual self-esteem and a fear of enjoying the pleasures of sex. We strive to fill the gaps on the lack of sexual education and positive role models when it comes to sexuality. 

The online nature of our Festival let participants from all over the world to connect with others who may have similar upbringing. To ensure that sessions are dynamic and interactive, speakers and facilitators are all experts in their field. This Festival programme includes a range of talks, workshops, guided meditations, dances, breathwork and yoga. 

Come join us and embark on a new learning journey!
