Tantra festivals are growing in Europe as people increasing look to expand their sexual horizons and embrace a deeper sensuality in their relationships.
If you’re just looking to get laid then Tantra events probably aren’t for you. We’ve nothing against meaningless sexual encounters (as Woody Allen said: “Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go it’s pretty damn good.”) but you’re better off getting drunk and lucky at a bigger festival if that’s what you’re after.
Tantra festivals instead emphasise presence, connection and intimacy through sex. Some require you to come with a partner while others are open to individuals but make sure there’s an equal balance of women and men.
