About Us


Sexual Overtones was spawned in the summer of 2008 when P.D., who had worked with groups like the Halifax Burlesque Society and Pink Velvet Burlesque, moved west to Ottawa.

Since then, we’ve had several very successful performances and grown several committees made up of dedicated and sexy volunteers.


Sexual Overtones (SO) aims to provide quality entertainment which showcases a diversity of performers in a sex-positive, playful and all inclusive environment. SO provides support to local non-profit organizations. Being involved (as a performer or an audience member) in SO is a fun way of expanding acceptance and love of human sexuality in its splendid variety while creating a safe, fulfilling, and esteem-boosting environment for breakthrough performance art.
