The Togetherness festival, for example, is designed to be more than just about sex, and people are rather amused by what it has to offer.
According to an article in vice, it’s almost like a human petting zoo, with individuals from all over the world flocking to the event to experience sex and love in its purest form. It promotes emotional and physical connection through a variety of programs and sessions, such as nude yoga, among others. It also helps people understand that having a happy sex life is based on their daily decisions and experiences. After being selected into pairs, the cuddle class is all about cuddling with the opposite person before moving on to bigger activities at the festival.
It also features a yoni massage class, which helps people have greater orgasms by just providing them with correct sex education, something most people did not receive when they were younger. Before getting into the acrobatics, the event transforms into a dance party where people participate in all kinds of kissing and fondling. Kissing booths are set up in several Western countries’ colleges to help introverts come out of their shells and integrate into society. To explore their sexuality and make them blend with other sex.

Who knows, maybe this is where you’ll get ideas for your next vacation!
So, in this article, we’ll look at some of the strangest and wackiest festivals that take place all around the world.
1. Pon festival of Indonesia-:
The Pon Festival in Indonesia, where couples are required to have sex with strangers seven times a year.
In Indonesia, there is a festival known as the Pon festival. People go to an island for this event to have sex with strangers. During the Pon Festival, tourists go to a temple to engage in adulterous sex in the belief that it will bring them good fortune.
The festival draws couples who come to have sex with complete strangers, even if they are married to someone else. In many parts of the world, discussions about sex and exploring sexuality are considered taboo because they are perceived as contradicting traditional beliefs. However, some centuries-old traditions and beliefs provide a different picture about the attitudes toward sex in these very regions.
The festival takes place seven times a year, and participants will walk up Gunung Kemukus, a mountaintop Islamic shrine on the island of Java, to participate in a religious ceremony to assure good luck and wealth by having sex.
If they want good luck and fortune in the future, participants in the Pon festival must spend the night atop the mountain and have sex with a stranger. Furthermore, according to custom, this will only work if they have intercourse with the same person seven times during the year during Pon.
The rite includes praying and placing flowers at the grave of Pangeran Samodro, one of a Javanese king’s sons. The participants must then wash in a sacred spring before finding a stranger with whom to execute the horizontal tango.
Given that Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim country, it appears strange that a rite involving extramarital sex exists there. However, an event in Indonesia that involves strangers having sexual relations adjacent to a temple appears to offer a quite different picture.
The Pon Festival is held at a shrine on Java’s Mount Kemukus. After that, the strangers must meet seven times every 35 days to complete the process.
The bones of a 16th-century Javanese prince named Pangeran Samudro and his stepmother Nyai Ontrowulan are kept in Gunung Kemukus’ temple.
2. Kanamara matsuri-:
Kanamara Matsuri, also known as the Fertility Festival, is perhaps the most well-known of Japan’s strange customs (or sometimes the Penis Festival). The event, which takes place in April in the city of Kawasaki at Kanayama Shrine, is only one hour south of Central Tokyo and has a history that dates back to the 17th century.
Various maids and prostitutes would come to the shrine during this time to pray for protection from sexually transmitted illnesses and other tragedies. This inspired the shrine’s parishioners to organize the festival, which has since grown to be one of the region’s most welcoming and celebratory celebrations.
On this day, people of all races and ages gather to watch a mikoshi parade with human-sized phalluses being paraded through the streets and transported to the Kanayama shrine on palanquins. Various phallic-shaped things, both edible and artistic, are arranged around this. Participants can learn how to carve vegetables into phallic shapes, dress up in penis-themed outfits, and pose for photos on big wooden phalluses.
3. Festival of really good sex in Australia-:
The Festival of Really Good Sex, hosted in Australia, offers courses on all elements of sex, as well as classes like ‘Hold Me Tight,’ which teach hugging skills. The next one will take place in Bamarang, NSW, from the 26th to the 2nd of February. So you’ve calculated how much time you have to book your tickets and take a vacation from work.
There are many workshops and performances to choose from, and it has a more conference-like feel than some of the other festivals on this list. Except for the sessions where you don’t have to wear anything.
“Making kids” to “Porn yoga for porn fans” are among the topics covered. Attendees are urged to acquire a more attentive approach to masturbating to pornography through live and video demonstrations in the latter.
The festival of truly good sex teaches sex education through various behaviors that lead to pleasant sex life.
According to Dr. Banki, a well-known sexologist, “no full sex… in that course.” He wouldn’t say whether that occurred at other times during the festival.
“We’re there to educate folks about sex,” says the group. He argues, “This isn’t a sex party.”
The festival also delves into more serious issues, such as sexual assault recovery. For the first time in the festival’s history, the programme From Sexual Abuse to Sexual Healing is being offered.
4. Kutemajrvi sex festival of Finland-:
If you prefer your sex to be more cerebral, the Kutemajrvi Sex Festival in Finland might be for you. Lectures on sex from notable philosophers on sex and sexuality will be held with live acts from adult film stars and exhibits of sex gadgets.
The festival takes place in Kangasniemi, a small village with a population of only 5000 people. Once a year, though, the town comes alive with exotic dancers and people putting on live sex displays. Lectures, of course.
The Aphrodite competition, a nudist beauty pageant, is the festival’s centerpiece. Just keep in mind that it might become pretty cold in Finland before you enter…
There is an entire universe of sex festivals, events, and competitions to discover. Open your head — and possibly other bodily parts — to the vast world of sex as the world opens up.
So there you have it, a bucket list of the strangest and wackiest festivals, or sextivals as they should be called.
