Our Speakers:

Lady Ava - Kink Therapist, Dominatrix and Sex Educator.

Why the Adult Industry is Everyone and Noone's Business. 

I'll be speaking about what my work as a Dominatrix is and isn't, how patriarchy is preventing the safety of women, how my work has helped men and women recover from trauma and make peace with their true selves, and how the legal system is failing an entire industry at every turn. Adult consensual activity is not going away. It is the collective responsibility of myself and others in this forward thinking industry to break down barriers, challenge government decision makers and keep each other safe.

Jem Ayres: Orgasmic Embodiment Coach. 

Life on the Edge of Orgasm

Jem is a certified Sex Geek -  A trauma-informed, Certified Sexological Bodyworker, Sex Coach, Tantra practitioner and teacher.  She is the Founder of Orgasmic Embodiment, and regularly leads workshops, retreats and hosts talks on conscious sexuality  Life On The Edge Of Orgasm is where Jem speaks about leading a life which radically prioritises female pleasure.
