The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, April 21. Join Max Appello for a reading from his current work in progress: Prayers Through A Ball Gag – And Other Sordid Musings. After several years of composing “wank fodder” for publications such as Hustler Fantasies, Max now examines the deeper nuances of his exploits, mapping a journey colored by such sticky brushstrokes as personal faith, addiction and love (even while struggling to distinguish one from the next).

Topic – SEXx Interactive Conference/Workshops http://sexxinteractive.com
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 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.
