Xplore – what is it about?

xplore - The Festival on the Art of Lust


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

offers more than 60 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. Hence we decided to take the risk of exporting the Xplore idea to other European countries. The connection to the local scene is a very important aspect to us and we are very interested in contacts to persons who would like to communicate and transmit the Xplore idea in their city and region.  If you are interested or inspired, please contact us!!

In 2019 special local editions of the xplore festival are also happening in Rome and Barcelona.
