The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday,  Oct. 15. Heather Shayne Blakeslee will be presenting, “The Day That You Find Me is Different” a thought-experiment and meditation on the nature of desire and long-term relationships.  Told from the perspective of a modern-day Eve speaking directly to an every-man Adam, the piece explores how we see one another in relationships and how we construct our realities, often passing through each day without intention, without desire, and without knowing one another.    The fictional scenario depicted in the performance has the head of an essay and the heart of a spoken-word seduction piece, and it will be accompanied by percussion on Turkish frame drum by Walter Foley. http://www.littleredrecords.com

Rochelle Lewis will lead the ‘Talk’ offering an excerpt from the Fringe event “All the Sex I’ve Ever Had.” She was one of the featured performers in this production and will also lead the Q&A.

Approximately twenty attendees will also entertain with their 5 minute sex memoirs, rants, short stories and poetry. The half hour talk and Q&A will be led Meghan and Gigi. They will talk about the taboo in discussing masturbation.
