Essensuality: An Evening of Erotic Expression

Tomorrow, Sunday, December 8th, 7-8 at L’Etage, Philadelphia – I shall be attending, join me.

Details below:

Sex, love, relationship…
Anger, passion, longing…
Unspoken desires, unrealized fantasies,
unheard of sensual adventures…

Essensuality invites out the essence of sensuality. The raw, vulnerable, uncensored, tender – usually private – moments step out into the spotlight to be shared. In poetry, spoken word, dance. Comedy, storytelling, music. Or some genre of your own imagination.The evening will include: Featured acts, open mic performances, and spontaneous combustion…not necessarily in that order. Bring yourself, your friends, your lovers. Your desire, your embarrassment, your uncertainty. It’s all welcome here! After all, that’s what it is to be a sensual being. And that’s what we’re celebrating…the sensuality that lives — whether hidden or on the sleeve — of every single one of us.

Featured Guests:

*The Black and the Jew*
Meet the fabulously funny and convention-breaking couple, Epstein and Hassan (The Black and The Jew), as they reveal their personal insights into relationships, sex, race, politics and the enlightening system known as of “BlackJewLove Technology.”

“Hysterically funny, wowed by deft switch from Hustler raunch to Zen sensitivity.” — The Village Voice

“A funny, sexy show to heal the races and sexes.” — Time Out New York

*Emerald, Erotica Author*

Erotic fiction author and general advocate for human sexuality, Emerald is also sizzling on the stage, and delivers her well-written work like no other. Her erotic fiction has been published in anthologies edited by Violet Blue, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Jolie du Pre, and Alison Tyler as well as online at various erotic websites. But make no mistake, she is not featured for her credentials. She’s featured because she is essensuality personified. You’ll see.

*Graduates of The Essensual Experience*

Select workshop graduates will share tenderly-crafted, sensually-explicit revelations with a level of vulnerability and honesty rarely seen in public erotic performance.

*Open Mic*

A limited number of spaces are available for the spontaneous eruption of erotic expression…contact the host in advance, or take your chances that night.
