... is a three-day event on creative sexuality, BDSM, body work, dance, performance and ritual.

... offers more than 40 workshops, demonstrations, lectures and performances on different aspects and variations of sexuality

... presents unusual individuals who play with, work with, and explore the phenomenon of sexuality. Individuals who have developed amazing techniques and rituals on their way. These forms are as varied as sexuality itself. Some are therapeutic in nature, some emerge from aesthetic intentions, others are spiritual quests or searches for borderline experiences. Most of them just aim for pure pleasure. Their common ground is playfulness, communication, creativity and expansion beyond the traditional relationship of the couple. They represent a different sexual culture.They are art with body and soul.

... will host presenters from all over the planet who will teach short workshops, giving insight into their special fields.

... wishes to provide hints, ideas and images and to promote an intelligent, open-minded and playful approach to sex. But most of all, Xplore wishes to bring together those who think and love unconventionally. To share and to learn

... is an idea of the choreographer and conceptual artist Felix Ruckert and takes places annually in Berlin, Germany since 2004. The Xplore concept of a playful fusion of art, body practices and sexuality proved to be extremely successful, which led to growing numbers of attendees over the last years. To keep the athmosphere of the Berlin Festival intimate we meanwhile limit the maximum number of participants there to 250 persons. To nevertheless provide more people access to the unique mix of workshops and presentations of the festival we decided to rather take the risk of exporting the Xplore idea to other European countries.

In 2016 for the forth time Xplore takes place in Italy.

In this edition we will present international presenters as well as local and national. As the link with the local scene is a very important aspect for us, we are very interested in getting in touch with people who want to communicate and convey the idea of Xplore in their city or region. If you are interested or inspired, please contact us!

Xplore Rome 2016 likes to offer again this special event as a creative retreat away from the city: three days in contact with nature, within the grounds of Borgo Paola a farmhouse with its own source of water and a large swimming pool, located in a forest about 50 km from Rome ...
