Dear Erotic Literary Salon Attendees,
The Salon is not a Salon without a certain number of readers and attendees to enjoy and applause. I’m not certain if people are not interested in erotica during these tough times, or the on-line format.
For now, the Salon will take a hiatus for the summer and hopefully to return in September. If you purchased a ticket, you will be receiving a refund through Eventbrite.
Please sign up for the Mailchimp newsletter that I send out usually bi-monthly. firstname.lastname@example.org Place this email in your contact list or you might find the newsletter in your junk file. In the newsletter you will be receiving a survey that will help me decide the best way to move forward.
Award-winning author Jeremy Edwards was to have been our featured reader this month. Please check-out his work: www.jeremyedwardserotica.com “One of the most original and amusing erotic authors around.” — Erotica Readers & Writers Association.
Hope you and those near and dear to you are safe and well.
Susana Mayer, PhD, Founder and Host, The Erotic Literary Salon
Hope you are safe, well, and ready to be inspired by some wonderful words of erotic wonder. It is not unusual for me to received emails telling me not only how much a person enjoyed the Salon, but how much they appreciate the concept.
A few typical remarks: my girlfriend finally heard the words I like to hear in bed, a spoken memoir could have been written by me, I identified with one of the stories. These statements often address sexual shame; the girlfriend who was embarrassed to speak these words, someone who felt they were different but a memoir or story confirmed they were not the “only” ones who enjoyed non-traditional behaviors.
The Salon gives many people permission to be their authentic sexual self. It helps break down the barriers of shame, which is most often the root cause of many sexual issues.

Dear Erotic Literary Salon Attendees,
It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to cancel this month’s Salon. The Salon has always been a place where cultural diversity is welcome and politics discouraged. But I am feeling the burden of a country in chaos and find it difficult to focus on the Salon’s safe space.
During this month of shared erotic silence, I wish to honor the Black and Brown individuals who have graced the Salon with their words and applause.
Please consider contributing to an organization that helps fight racism and creates a more just society. There are many that can be found on the Internet; my personal choice is:
I have been informed they are well funded, but they have links to other organizations that need money.
I look forward to connecting with my Salon family next month, July 21st.
Please stay safe, stay healthy, stay sane.
Susana Mayer, Ph.D.
