Bangkok's first erotic book festival aims to break taboos and seeks to pave the way for an open conversation about sexual freedom in Thailand.
According to Vicky Wichta, one of the organizers of the event:
openly about sex is very difficult for Thais so we created the festival to address these issues in a safe environment, mixing literature, exhibitions, talks and movies.
It is the first festival of its kind in Thailand, which many
foreigners consider an open and tolerant country regarding sex work, but in fact the state is very uptight about porn and sex toys..
Viewers will be immersed in a multi-sensory journey of (no doubt very soft) titillating art, passionate books,
sensual movies and provocative debates with experts, historians and sexual content creators
