The idea of the Sex Down South Conference was brought into this world by Marla Renee Stewart and Tia Marie Mosley. After working together on several sexuality-related projects in the past, they decided that they wanted to reach a bigger audience and produce something better than they have ever done in the past. Sex Down South has become that. This conference is full of love, excitement, and endless possibilities. With a call out to possible crew members all around the nation, we now have a solid team that helps to produce the event every year. Their dedication, passion, and experience working in this field is the glue that holds this conference together each and every event that we hold. Over the course of the 3 days there will be workshops, education stations, healing spaces, and performances. We hope that you attend as many things that you feel drawn to as possible and that you have a good, sexy, and safe time.
