Satisfy Your Urges at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival

Seattle Erotic Art Festival is known worldwide for a comprehensive collection of international fine art celebrating the diversity of human sexual expression. The incredible creativity with which artists approach the subject of erotica is captured in all manner of visual media: painting, photography, sculpture, assemblage, prints, mixed media, and more.

SEAF2017 is more than just an art show, it’s an interactive experience with lectures with amazing educators like Tobi Hill-Meyer, art tours with festival artists, naughty figure drawing, and a myriad of ways for patrons to be a part of creating art at the festival.  A very special interactive installation by Miss Indigo Blue will be available on Saturday, April 29th, culminating in a Twirling Tassels flash mob during the dance party!

Aaaahz! returns to the festival with a bevy of seductive experiences, ranging from mild to wild. There is a special event within the festival, Aaaahmazingly Racy with gifts, prizes, and a celebratory class on champagne. And remember, consent is always respected and  observation is a valid form or participation.

World class performances await you, both on and off the stages. Midori, the renown international artist and sexuality educator, will debut “Kimono 2: What We Wear” in the US. Local luminaries Ms. Briq House, The Shanghai Pearl, Boom Boom L’Roux and Syniva Whitney as the festival’s guest curators will blow you away with their daring stage shows!

Ambient performance at SEAF is interactive art that breaks the 4th wall by using the entirety of the festival space as the stage. Ambient performers engage directly with our guests, creating an immersive environment.

We are proud to present world-class erotic art that is rarely seen in mainstream culture and redefines boundaries in exciting new ways.  Get your tickets now to experience our 15th anniversary celebrating the Erotic!

Classes as perks for our Indiegogo campaign!

Want to support us getting into our new building and go to some sexy, rough workshops?  Roughinamorato has graciously donated 3 workshops as perks for our IndieGoGo. The only way to get tickets for these workshops in September is to contribute to our campaign.

Cigar Play – Saturday, September 16 — 12:00pm

Smoke burns your eyes, you feel the hot ember nearing your skin, and you shudder at what might come next. You’re sitting at your Top’s feet, when they indicate a nice plump cigar ash on their boot… just for you. People walk by and wonder if your hair is on fire (even though you know it’s not).

Cigar play is slow and erotic, delightfully varied, from fear play to ritual branding, sensation play to beautiful sexy smokey images to actually singing hair off your bottom… even eating ash.

Nothing brings together so many possible elements: from high protocol to primal energy, power exchange to sensation play; so many choices await the cigar player. Come to this class to learn about the many forms of cigar play available to us, and see how they can be used as anything from casual play to intense scenes.


Boots & Feet: Kicking, Trampling, and Stomping – Sunday, September 17 — 12:00pm

Boots are sexy; they’re heavy and strong, and the imagery of power that they evoke runs from the force of kicking to the mental aspect of being on the ground looking up. Whether the feet are clad in combat boots, lineman’s boots, high heels, or even bare, force and fetish meet up powerfully in our feet.

Come learn more about kicking (how, where, techniques and warnings), as well as stomping, trampling, and even a little about breathing restriction. We’ll also explore the headspace of bottoming to boots, from worship to fear and intimidation.


Rough Rope – Sunday, September 17 — 2:00pm

Bondage can be mean, but let’s make it meaner! We’ll take a little time looking at some common ties and new approaches to making them meaner, both in approach, attitude, and techniques. Beyond the tie, let’s remember that there are lots of things to do with rope – lots of awful, mean, wonderful things – that have nothing to do with bondage, and we’ll explore some of them. Floggers, whips, cudgels, gags, and a quick run-through of the patented (not really) Roughinamorato Ropefist.

Bring your rope. If you already know how to tie a TK that’s great, but if you don’t know what a TK is that’s fine too – you’ll still learn some good (terrible) stuff. Attendees should bring rope if they would like to practice or follow along.

New home Funding Campaign is live and we need your help!

The Center for Sex Positive Culture and the Foundation for Sex Positive Culture have launched an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign: For those of you who may not yet know, the building that was home to both of our organizations since 1999 was sold. We have identified a new location and are looking to raise funds, in combination with current reserves, to renovate and upgrade the new location. We are looking to raise a flexible goal of $25,000 through this campaign.

Please check out the campaign and share it on your social media networks to help us get the word out. You are welcome to download the images in this post and show those as well. If you have a blog or a website, please post about it. If you belong to any groups or online communities where it is appropriate to share this, please do.

We appreciate your support helping us make Sexual Freedom for Everyone a reality.

The amazing folks at The Twisted Monk made this campaign possible with a generous sponsorship and we are eternally grateful.
