It’s time to celebrate sex!
Sex and sex festivals have been through endless ebbs and flows throughout our history. From highly accepted and sought out to taboo and meant solely for closed doors and married couples, for some reason, humans as a whole cannot seem to maintain a consensus as to sexual acceptance.
Sex is pure. There are no other methods to exist in this world that can provide you as much genuine pleasure, both from a physical and a mental standpoint, as well as the intimate connection to another human being (and yourself, through solo sex toy masturbation) as sex does.
So why shy away from something that brings us so much joy, so much connection, and such much spiritual release? There doesn’t seem to be much of a ‘good answer’ for that, and instead, we might just find ourselves in a newfound state of bliss should we collectively decide to celebrate sex and all of its joy.
And good news, there are so many others out there that share this collective acceptance of sex in all of its forms. You can find and become a part of this worldwide community by going to sex festivals, so stick around and check out a specially curated list of the 10 best, craziest, and kinkiest of sex festivals and where you can find them!
The Pon Sex Festival
With a sacred background, this sex festival is sure to get your mind thinking and invigorate only the kinkiest, most tucked away parts of your imagination and your take on spirituality.
The Pon Sex Festival takes place in Indonesia, on one of the islands known as “Java”. During this ritualistic festival, participants must hike up to Gunung Kemukus. Gunung Kemukus is a sacred Islamic shrine, and is here where the sacred sex occurs.
Occurring 7 times a year, in hopes of fortune and good luck, the participants must meet a stranger and have sex with them by this sacred shrine, washing off in the water when finished. Single or married, in a relationship; it matters not with this ritual, as you must fornicate with a complete stranger, and the legacy says that it must be the same stranger each of the seven times to be bestowed this fortune from the Gods.
Not for the lighthearted, but if you maintain a very spiritual outlook on sex, then this might be a very awakening and soulful sex festival for you to attend.
