The Rochester Erotic Arts Festival is more than just an exhibit of carnal art. You can shop for sexy accessories and toys, and learn about your body, healthy boundaries, safe sex, and a variety of kink lifestyles. A variety of vendors, educators, authors, artists, and performers will present workshops and exhibits designed to educate and titillate, such as 'Begining Bellydance' and 'Enjoying Sex as we Age.' Drag and burlesque performances are also part of the schedule. Dress in your everyday casual, or strut your stuff in your fetish wear; the festival organizers strive to provide a safe and judgment-free space for you to be yourself.
