The Sugar and Spice Festival aims to change the belief that people raised in traditional societies are unable to express themselves when it comes to sex – what are their preferences and attitudes. Perhaps it is their conservative upbringing or the fact that sex has often been a taboo topic not to be spoken of at home. Our aim is to impart positive messages and learning around sex, sexuality and sexual wellness. We want to empower participants to listen, learn and find wellness.

Throughout this festival we will work to change the mindset of participants, freeing them from any cultural norms that have resulted in low sexual self-esteem and a fear of enjoying the pleasures of sex. We aim to fill the gaps on the lack of sexual education and positive role models when it comes to sexuality.

The online nature of our Festival let participants from all over the world connect with others who may have a similar upbringing. To ensure that the sessions are dynamic and interactive, speakers and facilitators are all experts in their field. The Festival programme includes a range of talks, workshops, guided meditations, dances, breathwork and yoga.

Come join us and embark on a new learning journey!

About the Organiser

Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling in May 2018. In practice for more than 10 years, she is the only certified sexuality educator and certified sexuality educator supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore.

Often cited in the local media, Dr. Lee is the appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore, and Men’s Health Malaysia. She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She has published four books: Love, Sex and Everything In-BetweenOrgasmic YogaFrom Princess to Queen and {Un}Inhibited.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
