Beyond Fifty Shades of Grey: The Pleasure of Writing Erotica with Olivia Glass

Passion 101 Classes @ Sexploratorium

Sunday, November 17, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)

Philadelphia, PA

If you’ve read erotica—or even a sexy scene in a novel—you know the charge that can come from the written word. But how do you find the inspiration for erotic writing—and what can you do to set it apart from everything else that’s already out there? You’ll learn how to write orgasms and pen dirty talk while avoiding common pitfalls. Whether you want a naughty story to share with your partner, or you have goals of publication, this class will jump-start your juices, creative and otherwise.

Olivia Glass is the author of Five Stages of Grief (Fleshbot Fiction, 2013). Her work has also appeared in Filament Magazine, Bend Over Magazine, The Paris Review Daily, and Best Women’s Erotica 2012, from Cleis Press.

Dear Sir or Madam – Martha Graham Cracker (the alter ego of Pig Iron Theatre Company’s Dito Van Reigersberg)

I saw the following presentation last night as part of the Thinkfest conference. The host and a few of the Drag Queens were different, but Dito Van Reigersberg remains, he is one of the best actors in Philadelphia. Do tell him you heard about this in the Erotic Literary Salon blog, I want him to know how much I support his work.

The incomparable Martha Graham Cracker (the alter ego of Pig Iron Theatre Company’s Dito Van Reigersberg) hosts an intimate evening of revealing interviews and live performances with some of Philly’s top drag performers. Channeling her inner James Lipton, Martha probes these fabulous gender benders about the meaning behind the music and the makeup. The drag stars each perform a song that exemplifies their story best, accompanied by Martha’s cabaret partner-in-crime, Victor Fiorillo. DitoMartha gets into the act, too, performing and answering questions, including a few from the audience!

Featuring two of Philly’s favorite drag queens- Icon Ebony Fierce and Ian Morrison (a.k.a. Brittany Lynn). Plus, drag king extraordinaire Jenn Kidwell (a.k.a. Stan)!
