In four locations around the city to be exact - CENTRE OCTUBRE, ESPAI LLIMERA, FERIA VALENCIA and LA3 CLUB - 09-18 JUNE
So, why should you visit VSF?
Because VSF believe their festival is an alternative response to other festivals taking place around the world due to their perception of porn as an artistic way of expression.
Because they will offer a multi-sensory, artistic, cultural, intellectual and playful experience about sex.
Because Valencia Sex Festival will offer a wide variety of entertainment including exhibitions, lectures, films, workshops, fashion shows, DJs with erotic performances, and many more activities willing to change for once your porn and sex perception.
