The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, February 19.
Monica Day will debut a new piece, dedicated to her lack of luster for traditional Valentine's Day sentiments. - The Erotic Education of St. Valentine: How a martyred Catholic priest morphed into the symbol of romance, dooming us to centuries of mistaking the illusion of love for the real thing.
The evening’s early discussion will be lead by Day, who will demonstrate how she uses creative expression as the gateway to sensual and sexual expression. Attendees will have the opportunity to discover how her work can impact their authentic voice.
Day is known locally for her Philly Fringe productions, Song of the Sacred Whore and The Secret Order of the Libertines: An Intimate Revolution, and is the founder of The Sensual Life. http://www.thesensuallife.com.
Murmuration is a cross-genre chamber ensemble based on improvisation. They will be performing several works; one based off an improvisation called Frere Thibault, another on the text "The Ethical Slut" by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy, and the last piece using the use 6 word love and hate letters the 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....”
