An interview with our Festival Director, Jo Balmforth by Adultmatchmaker.com.au.
Thank you for the opportunity to reflect on the 'why' I do what I do.
Please let me know what you think.
Jo Balmforth is the festival director for Celebrating Sexuality, a unique weekend retreat held in Melbourne with a festival atmosphere for the exploration of sex and relationships. We talked to her about the festival, how it has evolved and what the future holds.
Q. The image of a weekend-long sexuality festival conjures up images of orgies and piles of used condoms so tell us what really happens at Celebrating Sexuality.
A. Haha, I don’t hear that description as often as I did in the early days.
The weekend is best described as a retreat with a festival atmosphere. It centres on workshops exploring intimacy and connection and learning how to bring more fun to how we relate.
We work hard to create a space where people feel safe to explore and learn. We achieve this by having everyone attending the opening or induction and setting agreements – and then not having new people coming and going. There is a focus on boundaries and consent and together this allows people to go on a journey.
I feel like the event is accessible and down to earth – well, that is certainly what I hear from the people who keep coming back.
Q. Your background is in health care so how did you become involved?
A. When I was five I said, “when I grow up I want to run a sex and relationships festival”. *joke*.
The way I became involved was a succession of things throughout my professional working life in mainstream health.
During my nursing career, I specialised in cancer and palliative care. We have all heard the stories of what we are most likely to regret on our death beds. That we are very unlikely to wish we had spent more time at work.
Rather, it is the connections with other people that are most important. It is likely to be those lost or loss of connection with others that hold the deepest sense of missing out and I saw this as an unfortunate truth.
Through my work in health, I met a lot of people, some of them very lonely – or at least feeling alone at the time. From there I became interested in how people connect and communicate. As I delved deeper, it fascinated me how colleagues actively avoided speaking to patients about these topics; and this extended to sex and most anything to do with it.
There was an assumption that if people were facing serious illness or death they no longer had needs and desires.
Of course, it wasn’t during the immediacy of the situation – but as human beings, we need connection and especially at times of illness.
I did do some work around this where I could, unsurprisingly a lot of the attitudes were born from other health professionals discomfit with the topic.
The way I came to this festival was through my own exploration of sex and relationships – which I started after a 14-year relationship broke down. I wanted to help others avoid what I went through. It all just came together.
Q. The festival has been running for 8 years now so what have you found are the most popular workshops at Celebrating Sexuality?
A. Really, it comes down to the person or people facilitating the workshop, every time. I think at some point we have all learnt from someone who inspires us – perhaps to push ourselves further than we imagined we could – and feel safe to do so.
There are some workshops that explore what may be considered taboo topics – spanking, rope, anal play. For sure these get the most numbers in the class but in the end, they will not necessarily be considered the most popular.
Feeling safe to explore is the key, profound things happen when the right mix of information, facilitation and safety happen – perhaps especially so in this work – but anytime we try something new we need to feel we have the resources to meet the challenge or at least someone to catch us if we fall. I feel like we do that well.
Q. One of the questions I would have if I hadn’t attended is do I have to get naked and are all the workshops mixed gender so tell us more about what newbies can expect at this year’s festival.
A. What I want to provide, and I feel like we have – is a space that for most people will feel safe to enter and look at what they need to. I am not trying to be everything for everyone, but I see the festival as an opportunity to open up to new possibilities and then dive in and explore.
There is no sex in workshops, and this is something that I stipulate with the presenters. People receive information and they will have a profound experience; - they may reach orgasmic states...but one does not need to have sex to learn about it. People do not have to work with anyone they do not feel comfortable with – the facilitators are experienced enough to reduce this from happening and there is space given for self-responsibility.
I also don’t feel it necessary to provided gendered workshops. We did in the early days and actually, these weren’t attended as well as the non-gendered. Times are moving on.
As for nakedness, it is absolutely fine if that is where someone is comfortable. The levels of undress are however weather dependent ;-)
Q. I’ve seen participants say they come back in following years because they feel they’ve found such an open and accepting community. What do you think first-timer attendees are most surprised about at the conclusion of the Festival?
A. I think what they are most surprised about is how it all feels so natural and how normal everyone is. I don’t mean normal in an everyday sense, perhaps human is a better word.
We have a team of people to provide emotional support and this includes a number of qualified counsellors. But they rarely get called on, the people attending really look out for each other.
Q. Who comes along to this type of festival and do you feel a residential program attracts a different type of participant?
A. I fully recognise it is a relatively bold step to come on a residential personal retreat – but people fly to Bali for that kind of thing and this is basically in your own backyard!! Although, for sure it isn’t for our attendees who fly in from all around the world!
It is a real mix of people – different ages and lifestyles who attend. I would say the people who enjoy it the most are looking for more spark and sex in their relationships and those who would like to keep refreshing what they already have.
Ultimately, they want more than a hedonistic experience. They want to come away with some tools and information that will take them forward.
Q. Consent has obviously been in the news a lot recently. Consent and self-responsibility have always underpinned the festival’s teachings and conduct. How do you see the discussions around consent and things like the #metoo campaigns which have sprung from it changing the way we relate to our sexual partner/s?
A. Our focus on boundaries and consent as well as self-responsibility have been keys to the success of the weekend – and are threads that run throughout.
Even people who have would have thought themselves relatively or very confident learn a lot more about their ‘yes’ and their ‘no’ than they expected. I feel like this is because a lot of how we relate is learnt unconsciously and through trial and error. In this type of space, you get an opportunity to examine the old patterns and behaviours, air them out. Doing this allows you to figure out how you want to relate. This is much healthier than using someone you love, care deeply about – or just want to have a good time with!!
I regularly have people tell me how challenging themselves in this way has flowed into their professional lives – so, not only helping them to feel more in control in sexually intimate relationships; but also in their professional roles.
Q. In relation to the festival, what are you most proud of achieving?
A. Put simply, helping people to feel normal about what is a normal human expression.
Q. You are quoted as saying that intimacy is a public health issue. Why do you believe that?
A. I worked in cancer and palliative care for 25 years and I met a lot of people grappling with serious illness and death.
We tend to understand intimacy as associated with a sexual or romantic partnership. Of course, it is but travel more deeply and you understand that intimacy comes in many different forms.
My own experiences of intimacy have been felt walking side by side with another, a child reaching for my hand, a deep hug, snuggling with a pet, a gathering of good friends and shared humour.
It’s a deep feeling that someone else ‘gets me’ as I have presented before them. I feel seen and connected.
Feeling seen and connected is ultimately what intimacy is, and that is really what we most crave. Too many people are missing this and that is not good enough. Let’s give them spaces to figure out what is important. It is too important not to.
Q. What do you say to the people who declare “I don’t need to learn about intimacy, my relationship/s is/are already good”.
A. I would never insist everyone has to. It is down to them and whomever they are relating with to decide the state of their relationship – and if it is satisfying.
I would however say that it is a thing of the past to think that learning about sex and relationships was for those people who were broken, whose relationships were on some level, failing.
As I said earlier, most of what we know and have learnt about how we relate is unconscious – we have all been hurt at some point, if you don’t stop and look at it how are you going to know what you need to let go of and heal?
For this reason (and many more!) it feels essential to me to find spaces or situations where we can uncover and let go of what is holding us back – make space for the good stuff .
Q. Tell us about the first sexuality or intimacy workshop you attended and how it changed your perception?
A. That was in 2010, mainly what I found that sexuality workshops and education was siloed and closed off. To get involved you had to dress a certain way or know the language and rules...be “conscious” or know someone who was already “in”.
I understand to a degree why it was like that, there are some quite ridiculous laws and social rules around sex and sexuality, but I didn’t like it. I wanted to be in spaces and with people who accepted me for who I am and however I present – and I wanted to offer the same.
Q. You said that the landscape of contemporary sexuality education has changed since the festival began and has gone from being underground to visible. But when it comes to our youth, are we doing enough?
A. The emergence of formal education has changed the landscape dramatically.
There are some weekend courses about that are great, but we need programs that set future facilitators up to be able to assess/identify the learning needs of the people in front of them – and teach practical and valuable information. In Australia, the main program that has profoundly impacted the quality of facilitators is run by the Institute of Somatic Sexology.
When it comes to our youth, we need a different approach to how we teach them about sex – mainly by focussing more on relating and relationships, boundaries and consent. The latter applies to all relationships, not just intimate and sexual ones.
Q. If you were given $10million towards improving relationships in Australia how would you spend it?
A. I’d want some research into the best education and training aimed at adults. Then I would lobby the government to fund it Australia wide. The adults can then teach kids.
Q. Given you have people travel from overseas to attend, why do you think the festival has been so successful?
A. I am totally humbled by the fact that people see my event on Instagram or facebook, book a ticket and jump on a plane to travel half-way across the world to hang out with us for a weekend. And just as humbled when they drive an hour from Melbourne.
Organising and running this weekend is a huge responsibility and absolute privilege – and one I take very much to heart, as do my amazing crew of people who help pull it all together on the weekend.
Maybe that's it? People see how much we take it to heart and how much we care.
Q. Going back to our first question, are there any myths about residential sexuality festivals that you'd like to debunk?
A. I cannot speak for all residential sexuality festivals – but Celebrating Sexuality festival is one where you will learn a lot about yourself, things that you will be grateful to know, and you will have a lot of fun.
If your intention is just to pick up then it won’t be for you.
Q. Do you have a dinner party story you'd like to share?
You mean like the person who had planned to leave on Sunday night but asked to stay to Monday as they had had so many orgasms it was not safe to drive?
Q. If you could give the younger you some advice what would you say?
A. Start my sex and relationship education much earlier than 37 years old. Much earlier!!

Hey, it’s Jo, festival director of Celebrating Sexuality
I have some BIG news, both exciting and perhaps a little hard to deliver but you need to know.
Firstly, the exciting news is we are only 3 months away from the 8th Celebrating Sexuality Festival well over half the tickets are sold and limited numbers are remaining.
Our presenters are locked in and you can check them out on the website – www.celebratingsexuality.com
The other big news is that..this November will be the final Celebrating Sexuality Festival – as I have decided to take a year off
This event has been a huge part of my life for coming up to 8 years now so it is kind of tough news to deliver.
Back in 2012, I said yes to running this event, and, with an amazing group of people, have grown it into the much-loved festival we have today – and I have absolutely loved every minute.
But I want to reach and help more people like you, and that needs some consideration and planning in order to create something even better for you.
So, if you know you want to experience this amazing event before it ends, you have a chance!
We have our last festival – the 15th to the 18th of November this year, just 3 months away
So, are you coming?
I should mention that as this is our last one, all tickets will be at the special rate – all-inclusive – and you can read about this over on the website.
But I know at the special price, these won’t last long so jump over as soon as possible
Tickets >> Click Here
As I said, well over half the tickets for the upcoming festival have gone – and, would you believe, a large number of those have been bought by people returning!
Many attending, not just for their second time – but their third, fourth – all the way up to eighth time!
Many travelling from all over Australia, the USA, Europe and Asia.
I truly believe there is no stronger testament to the positive experience of our attendees, the community we have grown, and the value we provide ...than people coming back!
I know some of you may be thinking – why stop now? Especially those who have been and know how special this event is.
Since 2012 the landscape of contemporary sexuality education has changed... massively!!!
There is a definite increase in tolerance and acceptance for exploring sex and relationships,
Education has gone from an underground – to visible, available and understood as a necessity.
As a community, we are also having more open conversations than ever before..
This has helped grow tremendously our understanding of sex and relationships in general,
As well as helping more people to understand consensual sex..
What has been – and still is often unique about Celebrating Sexuality Festival is that
Consent, alongside self-responsibility, have underpinned the teaching and conduct of the festival from the beginning
For most of us, consent was sadly underrepresented and even non-existent in our sex education and it is too often neglected in the education of our kids, even today.
There are of course still barriers..
People and organisations who are not yet ready to understand this as a human experience and a human right
We will continue to strive for this to change and for the kind of information we provide to be available to everyone.
What has been especially important to me is the festivals openness and acceptance of people where they are on their journey.
Providing a space for people to be able to explore, pick what they want, and express their sexual self without feeling they need to conform to the ideal of others.
You don’t have to dress a certain way or know all the language – it doesn’t matter how old you are, you don’t have to be one of the cool kids to be part of this accepting, intelligent, fun and dynamic community.
As I said, I haven’t delivered this all alone. The festival itself has been sustained by the love and support of a bunch of legends,
too many people to list here but if you come in November, you will meet them. You can also meet some of them >>here
Suffice to say, I have made many, many amazing friendships over the last 7 years. Family really. And I will continue to treasure that.
So, while the festival won’t happen again in the same way
The next 12 months is time for me to rest a little, create some more, curate and deliver you something even better.
Continue to look after each other – and watch this space!
Oh, and of course, we still have this November!
I cannot wait to see you there.

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. More info here
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.
If it’s meant to be – it will work out. Won’t it? At 37 years old I began exploring what I wanted from sex and relationships. Prior, I travelled with an expectation that I should know how to be intimate with other people. Deep down accompanied by competing doses of fear of being alone, and unwillingness to go there.
To be fair, being a good person with positive intentions and expectations coupled with conditioning: ‘This is how things are done/my parents did it’ – can take you quite far in a relationship. It took me to 13years and I suspect it’s what has kept many more relationships going.
If I waited long enough, the frustration that occasionally surfaced from not feeling seen, from not connecting and feeling disconnected – would pass. We would continue on. After all, I was in love, and love is all you need.
It is fascinating that I lasted so long with this frame of mind. This, in the context of knowing that when I finally look back over my life, what I owned or achieved at work will count for nothing. What will matter most is relationships, and especially anyone I shared an intimate relationship with.
I think about this from the position of 8 years later. It seems my intimate relationships are the only part of my life where I was on some level content to work from trial and error. Unconsciously and conveniently in collusion with my partners.
In my 25year career in mainstream and alternative health, and more recently through events; caring for people with the benefit of an evidence base makes so much sense to me. Studying formally at high academic levels, I worked as a nurse for twenty years, mostly in the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). The NHS culture during this time strongly supported life-long learning and practice development. I lapped this up.
But how I related to those I was sexually intimate with, my friends, even people I worked with; had not made it into my plan for learning. Nor had it been included in my early sex education which focused on procreation – or avoiding it.
With hindsight, my belief was that wanting to learn more about sex and relationships was for those people who were broken, whose relationships were on some level, failing. I lived with good intentions and good enough. The other option would be admitting I was a failure. A failure is how I felt when my 13yr marriage began to crack and eventually broke down.
Motivated now to learn more about intimacy, I found a focus on counselling therapies, a plethora of books and magazines. This was helpful to a point. The reality of these formats was they couldn’t communicate how it feels to connect, how intimacy feels. It could not teach me how to be more present, nor integrate previous experiences. They ignored essential elements of adult learning: clarity of purpose, an experiential component and respect for past experience.
Around my hometown of Melbourne, I visited groups and clubs where sexuality was a focus. I found some had dress codes, asking me to change the way I presented myself. Or exploring your sexuality meant being sexually promiscuous. Some had rules or ways of interacting which the other attendees just seemed to know. Others were highly experiential, with little or no information shared to facilitate learning.
I felt uncomfortable and confused. I wasn’t after a quick fix but it felt like it could take years to understand and I didn’t feel like I wanted to change the way I looked or behaved to fit in. I’d already resisted doing that during my high school years.
In 2012, persevering, I attended a weekend event exploring the spectrum of sex and relationships. In one of the first workshops, I had to simply look into and hold the gaze of a stranger – and breathe. For all our discomfit we may have standing in a busy supermarket under fluoro lights. Naked. I was seeing them and I was being seen – and I knew it.
I now understand I was experiencing connection without sex and without an agenda. It was an experience that was initially uncomfortable for my mind, but my body knew this was what I had come for. That weekend event was to change my life on a personal and professional level, more so than I could have imagined.
Later that year I began running that same event under its new name, Celebrating Sexuality. Parts of the structure remain, however, over time I have gained more clarity about the impact of the event, not just on individuals, but also the wider political and social agendas.
Commonly people arrive in a similar way as I did, with little to no clarity as to why they are there. What they have in common is a willingness to share their curiosity, learning, fears and struggles; aiming to live their lives more fully.
Yes, I am providing people with an amazing weekend experience; but also with strategies and tools for moving forward. I am regularly contacted by the attendees, months and now years later, describing their experience as life-changing. They also keep coming back.
The most important thing I learnt thus far is that connecting with myself first is the enabler to connecting more deeply with others. It is not always easy, but loving myself has allowed me to love others more deeply in return.
Indeed, love is all you need.
