Few things in life are more elusive than good sex.
From teenage fumbles to Tinder hookups and 20 years of stale marital intercourse, bad, boring, and lacklustre lovers are everywhere. You might even be one of them.
Fortunately for those looking to expand their sexual repertoire, there’s a wealth of information out there to give you an, ahem, helping hand. One of the best resources to get all that knowledge in one place is Vancouver’s annual Taboo...The Naughty but Nice Sex Show.
With a warm, sex-positive attitude, the event offers an upscale adult playground that aims to enhance romance, open new sexual avenues, and provide education in a range of areas. Entertainment, provocative seminars, live demonstrations, and unique shopping are all housed in the cavernous Convention Centre—and, take it from us, there are more dildos than you can shake a stick at.
No topic is off limits at the event, with seminars on everything from bondage to perversion to exploring kink scheduled across the weekend. Sexologist and author Dr. Jess O’Reilly will take to the mic for a series titled Sex talk with Dr. Jess, and various demonstrations on how to tie up your partner safely will run from Friday until Sunday night in the Dungeon and Kink Seminar Theatre.
The venue is fully licensed, and offers the chance for visitors to grab a drink while chatting with informative exhibitors, or check out one of the numerous shopping areas. Those interested in live performances can head to the Taboo Stage for first-rate entertainment hosted by gender illusionist Symone Says. Spoiler: there will probably be prizes.
Building on popular aspects of past shows while adding new and intriguing features, the event is set to incorporate elements from sex trends of the past year, including new technologies and advice on how to throw sensual parties. Here’s to hoping they bring back VR porn.
Vancouver’s Taboo…The Naughty but Nice Sex Show is at the Vancouver Convention Centre, East Hall, B and C (999 Canada Place) from February 2 to 4. More information and tickets are available here.
