Are your weekend plans severely lacking in nipple clamps? Then hop on the first plane to Dublin. You might just make it in time for a 50 Shades Of Grey-inspired sex festival.
"50 Shades Of Bliss" is not affiliated with the 50 Shades franchise at all, but rather it's seizing the lust-crazed lady moment. There'll be workshops on sensual massage and tantric sex, as well as talks on contraception, sexual rights, and sexual energy mastery for women. And boys! There's an "Ultimate Lover Bootcamp" for men only.
The whole fest leans towards the hippy-dippy side of things: there's an event called "Spiritual Speed Dating" and Wicca and Magick are heavily represented. But if, as the organizers say, the ultimate goal is to "move from a guilt and shame filled perspective on sex and sexuality, to one that allows sex to be a path to enlightenment as well as personal and collective freedom and empowerment," then I say 'good man!'
