Raul Roman will be our chef during the event. Proprietor of L’hortet vegetarian restaurant in Barcelona since 2011, he will woo us with delectable vegan recipes from the restaurant, with a special emphasis on organic products.
We are offering the option to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the masia starting Friday lunch and ending with breakfast on Monday morning
All meals are organic, vegan and gluten free except breakfast where there are gluten free options.
This year, as well as camping in tents and campervans, we are thrilled to offer rooms in a fantastic castle and masia. There are double rooms, double rooms ensuite and dorm rooms, some ensuite, for between 3/4/5 people. Places are limited so don’t delay in getting yours!
No! Xplore is a festival on various explorations. Therefore it is at your choice which workshop you want to attend. On the other hand all workshops are open to everyone as long the capacity of the location or the demand of the presenter allows it. We just recommend you to get as early as possible into the space of you desired workshop before it will be closed in order of overcrowding. We encourage everyone to be open to new experiences and attend as many workshops as possible for discovering the variety of the Art of Lust.
No! Unless otherwise specified, no workshops require nudity. For most workshops loose fitting, comfortable clothes are appropriate.
All workshops are learner-centred and for every-body. Even though some workshops may be quite physical, sexual contact as such is in no way required to participate and enjoy. As the event is designed for adults we must emphasise the importance of consideration and self responsibility. Therefore it is obvious that all interactions should be related to the basic principle of SAFE – SANE – CONSENSUAL and practised by Safer Sex. We will ban anyone immediately from the entire festival who offend against this rule, acts reckless or even gets molesting.
With the purchase of a ticket you can participate in any workshop offered. Please note that three workshops are always being offered simultaneously, probably in the following time slots: (11am – 12:30pm / 1pm – 2:30pm / Pause / 4pm – 5:30pm / 6pm – 7:30pm / 8pm – 9:30pm). Therefore, you can take a maximum of five workshops per day. In the case that a particular workshop should become too full, we reserve the right to limit the number of participants. In that case, we would ask you to choose a simultaneous alternative or take a break. There is no guarantee of being able to participate in every workshop you wish. We do recommend showing up on time.
That strongly depends on the content of the particular workshop. In most of the workshops, the presence of passive observers doesn’t matter. In some of them, it would be disruptive. The teacher will decide accordingly.
The abbreviation BDSM stands for three terms that are independent of, yet related to each other: Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sado-Masochism. BDSM is a collective term which includes all consensual sexual activity between adults, aimed at mutual pleasure, which involves dominant-submissive role play, physical restriction or playing with thresholds of pain.
No. In the tolerant and open-minded atmosphere we are hoping for, you are, however, also welcome to appear in fetish-wear. For the final party the dress code is elegant-sexy-kinky-fetish.
All workshops are only for adults, 18 years old and up.
We are of the opinion that you should have sex – and most other things in life as well – only with love. A bit more technique doesn’t hurt, though.
Not really. Some workshops may be intended only for women, or only for men, but this will be clearly announced.
Xplore presents techniques and rituals that are related to dance in that they use the body as the central medium. Conventional dance techniques often avoid sexuality, even while working with sexual energy. Successful dance is brilliant and radiant. It is convincing when a coherent interplay of emotion and form refers to something of a higher plane, often described by the adjectives “magical”, “inspired” or “universal”. You could also call it “sexy”. The techniques offered by xplore focus on the sexual body. They consist mostly of practical exercises which require unity of form and emotion. The movement events that result can, by all means, be experienced as dance and observed as choreography.
We have made an effort while putting the program together and choosing the teachers to avoid the usual separations and to create a selection that has something to offer for people of any sexual identity and orientation.
Of course. In those workshops which require partner exercises or a gender balance the teacher will manage the composition and division of the group.
Bring them. Ask them. Or stay at home.
