Doors open at 7:30 p.m. (limited seating), for cocktails, food and conversation. The event begins promptly at 8:00 p.m. Admission is $10, discounted for students, and seniors (65+) to $8.

    Juan, my man,

    Juan buddy,
    Don't take it personal, just chill.
    Take my advise on this: This world is set up so that you can have anything you want. You only have to wish it so and it will happen. Along the way it helps if you live by this mantra. "Strive to be the one they'll miss the most. If you do that, almost anything is possible. Also you must first learn to read between the lines.
    Love and greetings, Franky -G-

    LOLOLOLOLOL you set my belly laugh in motion Frank G. Thanks, I needed that.
    Juan - I find when you go out intentionally looking you find little. Just live life, in places you enjoy and people will come to you. Salon's vary, all types of subjects, find one you enjoy, find some meet ups with subjects you like and have a good time.

    Of course it's risky, John. No risk, no reward! I introduce myself to people all the time, and they're always the "right" people, though not always the right people for me at the time - but the only thing I'm risking is a moment of awkwardness. Every environment outside of work is a place where like-minded people can socialize. Rather than initiating a discussion about sexuality right off the bat, I'd suggest you initiate a friendly discussion about whatever environment you're in. :D

    Great answer once you've met someone, but how to meet? Live life to the fullest doing what you enjoy, then you will meet someone who at least likes what you do. That is a start, then follow PLURall's sound advice.

    The best method I've found to meet attractive partners of every gender and persuasion is to be patient enough to take your time forging friendships before attempting to make a lover of anyone. There really aren't any shortcuts.

    Thanks to all who attended, read, applauded. You all helped create this most wonderful evening of shared erotica. If you have a specific topic you would like discussed at the end of the evening, please share that either on line or via email. Any topic having to do with the works you hear spoken at the Salon is fine, eg. love, sex, relationships, erotica, porn, BDSM, LGBT, etc.

    Excellent readings and magic show. Bravo to all the new readers! They really shined. Even the 15 minute break was interesting. Taking the advice of one so wise . Talk to someone you have never spoken to before. It might be the most interesting 15 minutes of your day

    My first time and definitely NOT the last! I was quite impressed at the openess of the speakers. I hope that I will be able to meet a female author and collaborate on a project.
