The end of summer normally makes the city of Barcelona slow down a bit, with a less inviting weather, with a smaller number of outdoor events and people staying home more. Just when you think things are cooling down, though, you’re in for a treat.
This October 6-9, the temperatures in the city will rise again when the Vall d’Hebron Pavilion hosts the 2016 edition of Salón Erótico de Barcelona, the most famous erotic fair in all of Europe.

What is it exactly?
Organized by FICEB (Barcelona International Erotic Film Festival), this erotic fair is a unique event that spices up life in the city for a few days every year. It serves as an international meeting point for porn and eroticism professionals from all over the world, with both the biggest and smaller companies in the business being represented. It’s a showcase of everything that relates in some way to the erotic culture, from the most innocent nude portraits to the kinkiest of fetishes.
What you can expect
This being a celebration of an industry that is still pretty much a taboo for society in general, you can expect a progressive atmosphere when it comes to sexuality. This means that the environment is friendly for people of all sexual orientations. You’ll also find places dedicated to BDSM, swinging and all sorts of erotic fetishes and practices.
When visiting Salón Erótico de Barcelona 2016, you’ll have the opportunity to see art exhibitions, pornographic cinema, live shows, conferences and debates concerning sexuality and eroticism, along with many other activities spread out over the 4 days of the event. You’ll also be able to try the best erotic food on the planet. Yes, that’s a thing – and it’s so good that you’ll wonder if Afrodite herself isn’t running the kitchen.
This event will also give you the opportunity to meet the hottest national and international pornographic actors and actresses, such as Spanish legend Nacho Vidal or French sensation Tiffany Doll.
