Media Release from Gay Ski Week QT

The world’s number one condom brand Durex is pulling out all the stops to ensure the LGBTQI community has the most enjoyable Gay Ski Week QT yet.

The latest Global Sex Survey, which polled over 29,700 adults in 36 different countries, revealed half the participants considered “a good and fulfilling sex life beneficial for their mood, self-confidence and health – especially those that have been in a relationship for less than two years”.

Those ‘great sexpectations’ bode well for this year’s event.

As platinum sponsor of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest Winter Pride event, Durex NZ is delighted to offer gay men and women convening in Queenstown in September “any excuse to play”.

“With over 80 years of experience in the bedroom, we’re dedicated to inspiring lovers to love sex safely and we’re proud to back New Zealand’s LGBTQI community,” said Durex Consumer & Shopper Marketing Manager Sarah Hollander.

“We’re all geared up for a fun winter wonderland celebration of diversity. It’s going to be a fun and social week-long celebration of skiing, glamourous hosts, drag races, karaoke, and fun between the sheets!”

Party-goers can walk away with male and female goody bags and VIP prizes throughout the week including condoms, pleasure gels, lubricants and personal massagers.

The 2017 line-up of events and activities includes the fabulous Miss Kola cabaret dinner, diversity day drag race at The Remarkables, a fun and social Queer Quiz Night and the not-to-be-missed Propaganda Gold Dance Party.

VIP local, Gold and Platinum pass holders are invited to join Durex on Thursday September 7 Toga Pool Party for an over-the-top fun-filled afternoon at the Toga Pool Party at Nugget Point Queenstown Hotel.

Gay Ski Week QT organiser Sally Whitewoods said Durex NZ was dedicated to creating a sexually healthy nation.

“We’ve been working with Durex for five years and it’s great to partner with them across a number of events this year as a platinum sponsor,” she said.

“They’re the perfect match as their products suit everyone, and we can’t wait to see what happens at this year’s event.


“If you haven’t already bought tickets, we encourage locals and visitors alike to come together and celebrate their diversity. Everyone’s welcome!”

Event tickets are available from the Gay Ski Week QT website and up-to-the-minute news can be found online at
