Queens of Christchurch, With excitement, we at F Talks bring you our first event of the year: It has everything to do with sexual empowerment, self-love, and girl power.

Experience our panels’ open conversations about female sexuality while sipping on wine and nibbling on sushi, and let us inspire you to unleash or embolden your inner empoweress. Better yet- the net proceeds of F Talks will be donated to Aviva Women’s Refuge. You will be doing something great for yourself AND women who rely on donations made to charities that can make their life a safer place.

On arrival, you will have the opportunity to write down an anonymous question/statement for the panels to discuss. Given F Talks is all about openness and de-stigmatisation, we encourage you to be as creative and daring as you please- our panelists come from a diverse range of fields which include academic, counseling, and entertainment.

The panelists include -
- Laura Borrowdale, editor of Aotearotica literary print magazine.
- Bonita Danger Doll, a.k.a. Aphrodite in Fishnets, international showgirl and burlesque icon.
- Karen Saunders, gender studies lecturer at the University of Canterbury and LGBTQ advocate.
- Tayla Chambers, advocate for sexual openness, confidence and new pathways of millennial dating.
- Helen Mounsey, widely experienced intimacy therapist for couples and individuals.
- Siobhan Kahu McMillan, a postgraduate student researching intersections of race and gender.
- Ellie Haines, Christchurch blogger at Loving Ellie’s Belly and self-love activist.
- Mel Houtos, executive director of the New Zealand Pure Romance brand.
- MahMah Timoteo, body positivist, fetish and bondage queen, breaker of barriers for Pasifika women's sexual empowerment.

We are also thrilled to announce an exclusive performance by Megan Pyne, Pole Legends Finalist 2015 and "Miss Sexy" award winner 2016.

The event will be held at Empire, which will be reserved for ticket holders exclusively. It is important to note that we welcome everyone who identifies as female and is 18+, in order to establish a safe space and also freedom of (s)expression. Furthermore, the venue will be offering drink specials for F Talks guests, so bring along your fellow queens and make it a party.

There will be no tickets available to purchase at the door, so make sure to secure your attendance early. Your ticket to F Talks Vol. 1 covers entry, a glass of wine on arrival, a shared platter of sushi as well as a mini-expo of sexy and inspiring goodies to purchase on site (cash payments only).

E-mail us with any queries at - we welcome any inspiration and are happy to answer your event-related questions.
