PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 40 or more individuals. Approximately half 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 (93 years young) often recites her original erotica.

The next Salon will be held Tuesday, June 15. Part of the evening will feature Christopher Farrell performing ?Mayhem? a work composed specifically for the Salon, from his upcoming album. Mr. Farrell employs a technique known as Abstract Sonic Narration, which utilizes wordless music to tell stories from his life. His work has been featured in film, TV, spoken word poetry, and modern dance. You can hear some samples at

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, seniors (65+) and readers 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/blog.
