Reinhard Gaida is the founder and senior partner of Schwelle Wien,
Vienna’s first sex-positive space which he established in 2012.

Reinhard is a certified coach, counselor and trainer and is responsible for taking all necessary measures and precautions for maintaining a mindful and nurturing environment for all Schwelle Wien venues.

The Schwelle Conference and Schwelle Festival promote and enforce the concept of mutual acceptance and respectful interaction. All participants are given the opportunity to develop in a safe and inclusive space and to encounter consensual new experiences in all kinds of directions.

“My goal is to create safe places and discourses for a strong open-minded community. I emphasize on providing support to everyone who wants to live ethical non-monogamous relationships with or without a sex-positive lifestyle. Moreover with our events we strongly continue the public discourse on polyamory and sex positivism”.
