The Sexual Freedom Awards, now in their 23rd year, are a celebration of all those who stand up and fight for sexual rights, working towards a sex positive world. The awards ceremony is an annual acknowledgement of erotic performers, sexual service providers, publishers, activists, educators and volunteers, all of who contribute to a safer and more conscious society. We aim to promote excellence in the field of sexuality by celebrating a standard of inclusivity, openness and accessibility, currently under threat by present day politics.
The Awards includes a sensational showcase of talent and performance alongside prize giving. We honour the winner of each category with our famous Golden Flying Penis trophies, which are hand carved in Bali especially for the event. Each shortlisted nominee is introduced with a short video bio, giving the audience the chance to catch up on what’s happening in the various different fields of work and practise.
This year our Master of Ceremonies will be the rising starlet Dis Charge, cabaret host and burlesque diva extraordinaire, Kian de la Cour will be chairing the judging panel, and producing the event will be Stacey Clare of East London Strippers Collective fame. Judges and performers TBA closer to the date.
