[masked] - reserve a time slot to read at Salon (5 min max) - guidelines for reading. - blog s+x news, Salon notices, erotica, and guidelines.

The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, April 16. Featured reader Sam Rosenthal will be reading from his novel Rye, all about a Queer, poly, kinky, top-bottom, sex-positive character by that name.  Rye is “A money-shot across the bow of outdated sensibilities, Rye takes a sexual somersault through the complexities of desire in a penetrating portrayal of twenty-first century intimacy.”

The guided discussion will be focused on the word Queer and how it is presently used in our culture.

Murmuration is a cross-genre chamber ensemble based on improvisation. They will be performing several steamy works and one will feature the 6 word memoirs attendees will write on the evening of the Salon.

PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 65 or more individuals. Approximately 20 participate as writers, readers, storytellers, spoken word performers of original works/words of others, the rest just come to listen, enjoy and applaud. Frances, our resident nonagenarian (95 years young) often recites her original erotica.

Salons gather the 3rd Tuesday of every month at TIME (The Bohemian Absinthe Lounge), 1315 Sansom Street, Center City, Philadelphia. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. (limited seating), for cocktails, food and conversation. Guided discussions start at 7:15 and readings begin at 8:00. Admission is $10, discounted for students, and seniors (65+) to $8. Salon attendees must be 21.

Creator of this event, Dr. Susana, is Philadelphia’s best-known sexologist. She lends her voice to the Salon by offering relevant information to support the discussions that arise in the Salon and blog.

...surprisingly comfortable....Salon devotees praise her for the space she has created....”

“I think Susana is doing a very brave thing.”

Philadelphia Inquirer, February 10, 2010

“There are laughter and tears along with the hot rush of blood - to the face.

Daily News, March 15, 2010

“I never knew such a life of honesty could exist. I finally found a home I can be comfortable in...this event changed my life.
