Barbara Carrellas’ August presentation and our New Venue

Posted in events on August 14, 2011 by Pleasure Forum Australia


It feels like a while since I have been here.

Let me start by gushing about Barbara Carrellas. I am just back from her 6 day residential Urban Tantra Professional Training Program inland from the Gold Coast Australia. There were 35 of us in total and what a magnificent mix of Pro Dom/mes, switches,  tantrikas, therapists and educators we were! There was barely a dry eye on our last day and I can safely say everyone was touched by Barbara’s expertise, grace and humour. If you are ever inclined to take your understanding of sexuality a step further I can not recommend Barbara Carrellas’ work highly enough.

And of course for those who made it to Barbara’s fabulous presentation at August PSM, a great night was had by all as Barbara led us on a journey of her own relationship with sexuality, through the AIDS crisis of the 80s and into more contemporary times where the sacred and perverted meet face to face, where pleasure and pain walk hand in hand and where conscious erotic sensibility meets community care and wellbeing.

For those who missed out click here for the recording by Dean Beck from Hide and Seek on JOY 94.9.

And in other news, our gorgeous and revered venue 24 Moons is on the move, which means we are on the move too. 24 Moons had always only intended to be a  good time, not a long time, venue. With that, their lease is up and they are off to a fabulous new location , still in Melbourne’s CBD. We love them soooo much, we’re going with them, but that does mean that September PSM has been postponed until further notice.

And in other news FACEBOOK closed our old group down, so if you were in that group, you are not anymore. We have started a new page for you to LIKE. Click on the link to the right to be taken there and like us to stay in touch.

Until next time
