On Saturday night we welcome comedy performances by internationally recognised special guests.
In 2018 we are very pleased to welcome Laura-Doe performing her one-woman show, “Vaudeville of the Vulva”.
Very much at home on any stage, Laura-Doe has a natural talent for acting and comedy. We cannot wait!! You can read more about her below. We are also excited to let you know, Laura-Doe will be bringing her yOniversity resource tent with Vulvalicious Cushions for folks to explore, a library of books and an invitation to chat!!
Vaudeville of the Vulva is an hilarious one woman comic cabaret, entertaining and educating about female sexuality with humour and song. A contribution to the genre that includes the Vagina Monologues, the Vaudeville is written and performed by actress, comedienne and sexual health activist, Laura-Doe.
It features a host of ingenious characters including, The Vulva Underground – a troupe of unusually vocal velvet vulvae! Not to be confused with Puppetry of the Penis, this show is funny, sexy and wise, yet involves no nudity – instead it seeks to entertain, inspire and inform about an important but under discussed topic.

Laura-Doe wrote and performed her first one-woman show, a feminist commentary entitled ‘The Dangers of Being a Princess’ at the age of 9. It took four decades for her second work, “Vaudeville of the Vulva”, to emerge, but in the meantime she kept herself busy honing her performance skills as a lecturer, corporate trainer, actress and MC, developing her singing talents by writing and performing with The Voices of Gaia and being generally hilarious in the privacy of her own home.
Her interest in effective communication led her to a career as an educator which has spanned two continents and both the academic and corporate worlds. Very much at home on any stage, Laura-Doe has a natural talent for acting and comedy. She has been involved in theatre productions since school and trained in the 90’s with Penelope Chater, who has offered invaluable directorial advice on the ‘Vaudeville of the Vulva’ productions to date.
A professional somatic sexologist and sexual health activist, Laura-Doe is passionate about supporting women and men to understand and appreciate their unique erotic nature and to respect the beauty and power of their sexual energy.
Two decades ago she first published yOni.com, a women’s e-zine that has been celebrating the feminine amidst the rather masculine world of the internet since its early days. More recently she founded The yOniversity, providing sexual education, workshops and sessions, both online and in person.
She creates and distributes the Vulvalicious® Cushions, anatomically accurate 3D fabric art pieces, and has produced an entertaining and informative DVD, The Art & Science of Female Arousal, essential education for all vulva owners and those who love them.
p.s. Celebrating Sexuality has helped hundreds of individuals around Australia to feel more confident & free to express pleasure and desire, learn more about how to please their partner or future partners, learn more about what pleases them; and to feel safe to experiment.
If you feel you don't know where to start, or you just want more, now is your opportunity to take a radically different approach and understand how you have been standing in your own way.
Let us help you to finally experience sex & relationships in a way you deserve.
