Health & Pleasure Festival

Wednesday 15 June 2022
7pm to Midnight

Explore, discover, laugh and celebrate

Celebrating the world of health and sex ….

…. with some amazing people, who will be sharing their views, conversation and expertise with you all week. Come indulge with us, learning something new and exciting, change the way you look at pleasure, intimacy, health, confidence and more …

This is about celebration, it will be fun, light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek, humorous, sometimes crude and definitely taboo!

What to expect …

Over the evening, we’ll be bringing you conversations on the topic of health and sex. From 7pm to midnight, you’ll get to celebrate this diverse and beautiful topic.

Fun Exploration of our sexual world

The world of sex, pleasure, intimacy and desire is a world to be explored, by ALL. A world full of wonders! We’ll be taking you on an exploration, from our own views, and giving you space and permission to ‘see what’s out there’.

A view on taboo that breaks the mold

It is time for taboo topics to be part of the past, we want to break the mold and spend an entire week discussing the topics that we’ve been told for years to ‘shut-up’ about – no more! Come and hear what we have to say ….

Permission, Empowerment and confidence

Sometimes you just need someone to give you permission to explore. Sometimes you need to see the evidence of how others have been empowered and their confidence grown. This is your ‘sometimes’ moment!

Your hosts

Jessica Staniforth

21st Century Sex Educator, Desire & Intimacy Coach, wife, mother, plus size queer gal

I’m a huge believer in opening up the conversation around sex, with our partners, friends, family and community to lead us all towards more fulfilling, pleasurable, connected and healthy relationships.

I want you to have fun, get a little wild, explore and discover your true sexual self!


Vicky Midwood

Fitness, Health and Lifestyle Coach

My goal is to help your body move and your brain groove So you can let go of health sabotage and be ALL that you are instead of pushing to be more than you are.

I want you to let go of shame and guilt around how you look, eat, drink and think and allow in freedom and fun!
