The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, Jan. 21. Ainsley Burrows, creator of Sweet Spot Nation a pop-erotica extravaganza, will WoW us with his masterful presentation.  Weaving words into undulating poetry and body in motion. Erotica as you have never heard it before.

Approximately twenty attendees will also entertain with their 5-minute sex memoirs, rants, short stories and poetry.

The Talk: For Adults and Q&A will be lead by Ainsley Burrows. Ainsley has spent the last 14 years traveling and performing all over the world as a poet.  He will give a talk on what it takes to live as a full-time artist; how to perform and constantly create; how to network; and how to build your brand.

PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 70 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 (96 years young) occasionally 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. Talk and Q&A between 7:00-7:30 and readings begin at 8:00. Admission is $10, discounted for students, and seniors 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 am waffling. Think my ego is involved in making this decision and I must throw it out the window. I have only cancelled a Salon once in almost 6 years, and that was for Obama's inauguration. I was invited and then fell ill. I don't want to endanger any lives, but clearly people can make their own decisions. Then again, why tempt them? TIME doesn't open till much later in the afternoon so I won't find out if they are open until then. Think I shall wait until the snow actually starts falling, weather has been known to be fickle and change direction. I'll keep all posted as to my ultimate decision. Stay safe.
