The Sexual Freedom Awards promote excellence in erotic performance and sexual services and celebrate pioneers in the field of sexuality. The proceeds of the Awards ceremony are used to fund the work of the Outsiders Trust – a charity which supports disabled people in their sexual freedom and expression. Nominations for the Awards are accepted for individuals, services and organisations. Nominations are now open for 2018 (see 2018 Nominations). All the money raised by the Sexual Freedom Awards goes to support The Outsiders Trust. The Outsiders Trust is a registered charity, which runs a number of services for socially and physically disabled people.
The Sexual Freedom Awards evolved out of the international Erotic Awards, which were run by Tuppy Owens in London once a year from 1994–2013. The Awards were famous for their Golden Flying Penis Trophies, hand carved for the event in Bali. This trophy is still presented to winners on the night.
