The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, December 16. Reverend Dr. Beverly Dale is an ordained Christian clergy in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) who is currently a clergy-in-residence at United Christian Church of Levittown. A graduate of Chicago Theological Seminary, she has spent most of her thirty years of ministry helping people reconnect their spirits and their bodies and confronting sex-negativity in the church and culture. Affectionately know as “Rev Bev,” she will present poetry and music to inspire us to bring the sacred to any sexual exploration. http://www.beverlydale.org

Prior to Readings - Adult Sex-Ed: The Joys of Sex 

Topic – Reverend Dr. Beverly Dale will give a quick run through of the key biblical words and passages that will shake up your ideas and open the door to sex positive views. “We'll look past biblical misogyny with its procreative bias and instead discover sexual freedom, pleasure and diversity!”

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

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 (97 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. Adult Sex-Ed: The Joys of Sex between 7:00-7:30, 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.

    This raises the question of us ALL fulfilling the purpose for which God sent us here. We ALL have a mission that when taken collectively is what makes society function the way God intended. Part of our mission is to help others find theirs because we ALL benefit. Since this is a writers group, our level of skill and experience as writers is really NOT the issue. If we have something to say we should say it without hesitation because we never know who NEEDS to hear those very words at that very moment regardless of how good of a writer we are and the profound impact those words can have even to just one person. How do you put a price on that? Expression should NEVER be suppressed for that reason

    God bless you all, Bob
