While looking for images I came across this announcement dated 2013. Never seen previously – like it so I thought I’d share. Perhaps it will encourage you to purchase the ebook.
The Erotic Literary Salon Announces the Release of SENSEXUAL A UNIQUE ANTHOLOGY 2013
“SenSexual: A Unique Anthology 2013,” is a treasury of short stories, anecdotes, essays, poems, diaries, memoirs, letters, emails and sextings. The generous selection of styles, settings, characters and intensity encourages individuals and couples to share erotic fantasies and explore what turns them on.
Fifty authors have contributed tender memories of love, spirited sex and spicy communications, transporting the reader through seductive, romantic, occasionally kinky works to celebrate the diversity of sexual fascinations and desires. The unusual mix of writings in this two-volume anthology are filled with learning and yearning.
Reviews on Amazon
“…What is most striking is the honesty and purity of the emotions depicted with these written words. It is not the work of writers looking to shape their work to meet a set of pre-requisite genre demands, to grind out specific sexual content to satisfy an editor, to pad the length of their work to meet a stringent word count. It’s all from the heart…Hitch a ride on this Sensexual magic carpet and be prepared for a unique and intimate journey.
A must read!”
“A selection of insightful, teasing, truly sensual, fun erotic tales!…A story for every taste where the authors have not confined themselves to “commercialized’ formulas of erotica writing for a quick sale.”
“SenSexual: A Unique Anthology 2013” offers readers a glimpse into the monthly, standing-room-only, Erotic Literary Salon in Philadelphia. A similar mix of brazen writings, along with the authors’ illuminating backstories and the editor’s occasional unique insights, create the atmosphere of the Salon in print.
“SenSexual: A Unique Anthology 2013” takes people beyond “Fifty Shade of Grey.” Dr. Susana Mayer sexologist, Ageless Sex Life crusader, founder of the Erotic Literary Salon, and editor of this text, recommends both men and women share this book with their intimate partner, friends and book club members. It will spark a conversation or discussion that will range from entertaining to life-changing.<
The book is dedicated to Dr. Frances Seidman, psychologist and former head of a distinguished family and marriage clinic for over 30 years. Dr. Seidman first started writing erotica at 91, specifically for the Erotic Literary Salon founded in 2008. Included in this text are a dozen of her sexual memoir entries, early love letters (written when she was 18), and spicy short stories. Individuals attending the Salon have said her mere presence gave them permission to feel comfortable with erotica. Her writings will most likely do the same for people who have shame or guilt regarding verbal turn-ons. She is most proud of her authorized reading of the New York Times best seller “Go the Fok to Sleep,” which can be viewed on Youtube at the Erotic Literary Salon channel.
About the Erotic Literary Salon-live: Susana Mayer, Ph.D., is the host of this monthly event. Unique in the English-speaking world, the Salon offers a safe and comfortable space for authors and wannabe writers to share their uncensored writings. Since 2008 Dr. Mayer has acted as muse, encouraging attendees to find their sexual voice through writing and sharing at the Salon. She also lends her expertise during the guided discussions and between readings, often enlightening the audience with sexually related scientific research and news. The Erotic Literary Salon has recently established the SenSexual Press to launch these first volumes in a planned series of anthologies, along with distinctive (occasionally controversial!) fictional and nonfiction books focusing on sexuality and erotica.
About the Erotic Literary Salon-on-line: Susana Mayer, Ph.D., brings her expertise in human sexuality to the website where erotica and sex converge. The daily blog is filled with information pertaining to sexually explicit material, sexuality, adult sex-education, sex news, and events, along with Salon guidelines and monthly press releases.
About the cover designer: Arnold Skolnick, painter, photographer and award winning book designer illustrated the controversial 1969 publication, “The Picture Book of Sexual Love.” Some of those original photographs were reissued in the book “LoveSong” and adorn the covers of this anthology. Arnold is also known for his design of the origin Woodstock poster.
