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 (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 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. 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.”

    Based on all comments from attendees the heat didn't seem to ruin the evening. My hot flashes mixed with the sizzling words and heat from the crowd made for one steamy evening. I am so very lucky to have such a wonderful group of followers. You really have made this event such a success. I thank you all. Susana

    I must say I had some adrenalin going myself, found it hard to go to sleep. It seems to me, at least, I've found a venue where I'm not so unusual. I thank you all for that. I will use the word "fok" hence forth. I'm happy though, to have gotten the dialogue started.

    The body was exhausted the mind just wouldn't turn off. Happens after every Salon. Perhaps adrenalin. I blogged in advance for the morning that I knew would be spent in shut eye mode.

    Another wonderful evening at the ELS! Thanks to Susana for providing such a welcoming and inspiring venue. And a special thanks to Troy and Mina for being so open, honest and authentic in sharing about both their relationship and their relationship with BDSM. Look forward to next month.

    I eventually did around 6am. One person was curious as to why I allow cursing on the site. They probably didn't attend the Salon last night where Frances read the book, "Go the fok to Sleep" and I commented on the Erotic Literary Salon's fb site that I couldn't get to sleep. Hope this answers the question.
