"I have to tone down my testimonial because you literally wouldn't believe me if I told you how incredibly awesome this festival was. It was the best week of my life so far, I learnt a lot about myself, had an amount of fun I wouldn't have expected to be possible, and made friends for life." – Moyaccercchi
“can truly say that Quintasensual was a life changing experience. It was unsettling and beautiful. I danced in the moonlight, cried my eyes out, celebrated bodies and souls. It showed me the true beauty of both myself and others, and opened me up to experiences I never thought would be possible. Can not wait until next year.” – Sinnunsinya
Quintasensual is a world on its own, while being completely in touch with everything around us. It's spiritual with a hands-on approach, gentle with as much roughness as you please, accessible and in depth, and inclusive to all who wish to join.
"Even if you think you know yourself really well - this is the 'Go To' Festival to find out even more luscious stuff" - Jufdi from Guildford
“Quintasensual really opened my body, mind and soul to new ways of connecting with others. I felt challenged, held, loved and appreciated and left with a renewed sense of possibility and belonging to a wonderful tribe.” - Jon
“Come to Quintasensual if you are looking for a place to express yourself the way you always dreamed about, and connect in a mindful and sensual way with other beautiful beings in that identity” - Feather
“It was my first time at an event like this and I didn't know what to expect. It was wonderfully freeing; a place to truly be myself. A place to learn, connect and grow.” – Sam
The space created at Quintasensual was very special in many ways. I have been at few tantra festivals before, but never felt so safe, accepted and appreciated. Feel very honoured that I had the opportunity to be part of it. It is hard to describe, but all the beautiful beings at the festival created the family which fully embraced every single member and accepted them the way they truly are; no expectations, no conditioning, just pure unconditional love and queerness everywhere around.
This is the best festival I have ever been to - and I've been to a lot! I've never come away from a festival feeling transformed before. The chance to just be myself in terms of sexuality, (dis)ability and gender, without feeling any need to explain or apologise for the areas where I don't fit into neat categories, was valuable. Being around a whole host of others who also didn't fit into neat categories - and learning from these people - was even more valuable. My mind was a bit blown, all in all.
"For the second year running Buzzy did an amazing job organising this unique and ground-breaking Tantra Festival of Love for a diverse mix of queer participants. There were folks from all colours of the sexuality and gender preference rainbow. Everyone was happy to mix and mingle, and although this is really a young person's Festival most adult age groups were represented. Any differences in lifestyle or outlook were very quickly merged during the socialising and workshops with the focus always on personal safety.” - CJB (London).
Thank you for creating this wonderful space - I have finally found a place where I can be myself.
I left on a cloud of peace, love and appreciation. We created a space of support and tenderness where we could express freely and show our true loving selves.
A safe accepting space in which freely and respectfully to engage with other people.
This festival was a blast from start to finish. There was a great deal of sensuous pleasure: I enjoyed going sky clad and there was lots of lovely touch. I discovered a diversity of new people and learned more about how I relate. I got closer to my partner, which was wonderful. There were ups as well as downs because these were real life experiences, not some alternative Disneyland. We came home glowing!
I have never felt so included and safe, ever, as at Quintasensual
“I have attended Quintasensual two years in a row and I can truthfully say I consider the people who go to be my tribe. There’s nothing else like it.” - Anon
“These four days brought stimulations and excitement in my life as I normally need months to experience them. It is of an incredible beautiful intensity, bringing up emotions, feelings, love I was really happy to be part of this adorable community for these rich days.” - Kristophe
Why I chose this festival I don't know but it hit the spot.
“Coming to this festival is the best present you can give yourself. It was the second time. One of the nice feelings I have being at the festival is that after a day or so, I do not look to people anymore in a gendered way. I just look at the person. My behaviour is not linked anymore to what is expected from me, but there is simply a flow of interest and energy an enthusiasm in both directions. I like this feeling in a super mixed group. Each workshop you choose makes you richer and more open. I wish it would be longer.” – Bamboo
This has been the festival that I've been looking for! Truly welcoming gender- and orientation- diversity. Celebrating who we are. Creating a very special community. And having great fun! I'm so glad I came!
Fluid and flowing! Never lonely or rejected. Respected and felt my Goddess being reflected back to me. The most comfortable and juicy space me; a man who loves to be a woman, has ever been so fortunate to live in for five sensual and wholly fulfilling days. Home now and I am bliss.
Quintasensual is a space for deep exploration, open-hearted connections, joyful self-expression and the promotion of total self-acceptance - whatever your gender, background, or sexuality. If you want a festival that will take you out of old-world limitations and into new-world celebrations this the space for you!
Wonderful, thank you very much, looking forward to next year.
Climb the Stairway to Heaven and meet your Slutty Angels there.
Facilitating here was an absolute joy. I felt held both by the other facilitators and by all the attendees. This is a tribute to the hard work of Buzzy in realising the vision and to all who helped in bringing it to life. This authenticity and commitment really showed in all aspects of the festival. From the workers, the cooks, the organisation and the facilitators. This all provided a framework to enable people to go very deep into themselves. But overall for me, it was the acceptance. The complete and total acceptance of gender, gender identity, sexual preference epitomised the essence of Tantra. Everyone was welcomed, none excluded. If you are familiar with St. Thomas Aquinas, then he wrote a poem called "the mandate”. It has become a mantra of mine and especially for the last two lines. "I looked into His eyes and then knew what to say to any angel who might serve as a sentry to God: No creature should be turned away.” After years of teaching and events, finally a…
“Quintasensual is an amazing festival. I went last year and had a truly amazing time and thought that it would not be possible to beat, but I was wrong. The festival just gets better and better. I have been to straight tantra festivals before and not really found my place there, but at quintessential there is space for me. The workshops are inspiring, intense and moving, the venue is bright, green and warm, the people are delicious, sweet and creative and the food is so very very yummy. Thank you Buzzy for creating this.” – Jos
“I think that I would have to say that the festival was definitely not what I was expecting, but turned out to offer a lot more exciting times than I could ever imagine.” – Steve
I would never have believed that in my lifetime I'd find myself comfortably nakedly, vulnerably feeling so safe and accepted in the sexual expression of my bi-gendered nature (feminine bisexuality and masculine active/passive gay sexuality), in the company of such a deliciously diverse and perfectly harmonious crowd of kinky queers. I believe this festival represents an amazing evolutionary step in the growth of queer conscious connectedness! Ta very much to Buzzy, the gang of dedicated tantric-god facilitators and the participants. A beautiful illustration of how, when the walls of our LGBT boxes are gently dismantled, we can discover ourselves to be more (divinely) similar than different.
Quintasensual a bubble of excitement, growth, sensual interactions. A high quality, varied and packed programme, amazing food and a crowd of all sorts of queers. I highly recommend it!
“A Fusion Festival bringing lots of strands together” – ChrisB

Buzzy did an amazing job getting this unique and ground-breaking Festival going. Never before has there been such a Tantra Festival for such a diverse mix of folk. There were folks from all colours of the sexuality and gender preference rainbow. Everyone was happy to mix and mingle, most age groups were represented and any differences in lifestyle or outlook were quickly merged.
Wow! Three years and the love and connection and openness just keeps growing. We have laughter, tears, sexiness, compassion, vulnerability, joy, sadness, amazing talent in our cabaret and the joy of embracing the many ways that queer spirituality and tantra open up for us. Thank you to everyone that has been a part of making quintasensual what it was, is and will be. You are all amazing x
The third year of Quintasensual was a wonderous place with huge love, connection and sexyness not to mention interesting uses of fruit and cake! Our new temple of love opened up to some fantastic sexy moments and the sanctuary of the Queer dome allowed for retreat to a safe place if you wanted some quiet and non-sexual time.
The second year of the festival built on 2014 and introduced a few new ideas, including the "House of heaven" celebrating and rejoicing in the services and skills of sex workers.
This was the first year of the festival although many said it felt so safe and well run they assumed it had been going for several years already!
