About Pleasure Forum Australia

Pleasure Forum Australia……………..  a bit  like book club, but we talk about Sex!

Sound good?…… Read on!

Formerly known as Pleasure Salon Melbourne, PLEASURE FORUM AUSTRALIA aims to provide a community base for people from all walks of life within the Australian and international sex-positive communities, to get together and exchange passions, thoughts, ideas, feelings, experiences, knowledge, information, contacts,  creative expression, art  and anything else that happens to inspire, engage or educate around the theme of sexuality.

Our aim is to validate the sex-positive community, by not only getting together and sharing a drink,  but also engaging and supporting the wealth of knowledge in our community. Pleasure Forum Australia is proud to acknowledge the sex-positive pioneers, creatives and educators who speak at our gatherings, and we value their input enormously.

For those who haven’t been to the gatherings, our speakers come from varied walks of life within the sex-positive community, bringing you some of the greatest and most up-to-date, readily accessible, sex-positive, pleasure-positive, health and networking information available in Australia.

Each month we celebrate and explore a different aspect of sexuality. Come along and share your knowledge, or take the opportunity to sit back,  have a drink & nibbles and learn about something new; or ask questions in our lively Q & A sessions. Our gatherings  generally attract around 60-70 guests ranging in age between 18-65,  of all orientations and gender identities.

Please join us in creating Pleasure Forum Australia . Our values of respect, tolerance and non-judgmental support for Australia’s diverse sexual communities are fundamental for this organisation to exist in a public forum, and we encourage all attendees to embrace these values within our sex-positive community. We are NOT a pick-up event, sleaze event or play space. If your interest in Pleasure Forum Australia is solely to get laid, you will be sorely disappointed. (However if you do pick up,  then good for you.)

Pleasure Forum Australia was founded by Cyndi Darnell in March 2010, under the name Pleasure Salon Melbourne.

We meet  the 2nd Tuesday of the month ( except APRIL 2013) at LOOP bar

  19. Thanks Cyndi for a creating such a rich and resourceful site. I found Pleasure Forum Australia while researching for my adult boutique for women, which focuses on high quality non-toxic intimate massagers. A number of topics were very interesting and helped in my own personal Journey. I look forward to exploring the forum more and your future articles.

    Thanks again!
