R18 Zine Swap

We're challenging our guests to make their own R18 Zines prior to the event.

The idea is for people to bring their own, homemade adults-only zines to sell or swap with others at the event. We'll have a table available for you to place your zines on.


These can be as mild, or as wild, as you'd like.

Colouring Contest

8pm - 10pm

Enter our R18 Colouring Contest to win sexy prizes from Adult Toy Mega Store.

We'll have a table set up ready for you to colour in our R18 Colouring Contest artwork by Charlotte Page. You can also download the artwork and colour in ahead of time:

Life Drawing

8 - 9pm

We're starting the evening with an informal (nude) life drawing session.

Between 8 and 9pm, we'll have a life drawing model posing for you to practice drawing. We'll provide some charcoal and newsprint, but also feel free to bring your own pens, pencils and paper if you want. The life drawing is free, but koha to the model is appreciated. Please be cool and respectful to our model.

Sexy Poetry

We've got four poets holding live R18 readings.

From around 9.15 - 9.45pm, we'll have poets reading their sexiest works. Featured poets include:
