The Ceremony

The Sexual Freedom Awards is back in its 24th year of celebrating those who stand up and fight for sexual rights and a sex-positive world. We aim to promote excellence in the field of sexuality by celebrating a standard of inclusivity, openness and accessibility, frequently under threat by negativity and politics.

The Awards’ night focuses on the finalists of each category.  It showcases the best talent for the Performance and Striptease categories, mixed with award giving and fabulous guest cabaret acts.  Kian de la Cour will be once again chairing the judging panel

The award is the glorious and famous Flying Golden Penis Trophy, hand carved for the event in Bali.  All nominees have shown dedication, spirit and excellence in what they have achieved but only the winners receive this trophy.

These Awards evolved out of the Erotic Oscars then Erotic Awards run by Tuppy Owens from the early 90s.  The Awards have always raised awareness and funds for the charity that Tuppy also founded called the Outsiders Trust (Charity Number 283350), which supports disabled people to find partners and lead lives that include sexual expression.

Any attendees that require special assistance, please approach one of our stewards on arrival and we will ensure your comfort and safety is prioritised.

The Awards are an event backed by SMB Productions CIC that also back the Sexual Freedom Ball.

Award categories

The Sexual Freedom Awards honour pioneers in sexuality, striptease artists, sexual service providers and their allies. They are intended for those who are making significant contributions to advancing the sexual freedom and rights of people through campaigning, sex work, somatic sex education including sex & relationship coaching, sexological bodywork & psycho-sexual therapy.  The proceeds of the Awards ceremony are used to fund the work of the Outsiders Trust – a charity, which supports disabled people with their sexual rights and expression. 

This year we have a wide range of exciting categories for which we welcome your nominations here! We would love to receive nominations for people new to us as well as those more well-known in the field.

Nominations close at midnight on September 23th 2018.
