The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, April 17. The evening will start with the Adult Sex-Ed Salon a one-hour program devoted to sex and sexuality. The audience will have the opportunity to pose any questions regarding sex and sexuality anonymously. Sexologist Susana Mayer, PhD, along with co-host Walter will facilitate the Adult Sex-Ed Salon and attendees interested in sharing their knowledge and experiences will join in the discussion. This is always an extremely lively, audience driven Q & A period.
The Erotic Literary Salon will feature Daniel Berlin who has been writing erotica for nearly 20 years, and recently has been producing audio porn. Philadelphia provides the perfect backdrop for his erotic personal essays, Lust in the Age of Anxiety, which explores the drama and humor surrounding intimacy and sexual relationships from the POV of an inexperienced 30-something, who just wants to make sense of it all. He will be selecting a few of his favorite pieces for the showcase to exemplify his themes and style, which becomes a performance, and more than just words on a page. Berlin has pulled together his wide range of skills and interests: from music, cuisine, and literature, to electronics, religion, race, and drugs; to draw meaning and insight during some of life’s most confusing times.
