The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, Jan 17. Plum Dragoness is a multi-talented thespian, dancer & and innovative poetess. “My personal aesthetic for performing poetry is to give it motion & to let the poetry act as a vehicle to carry a message…like a dance with words!”
Several months ago, the Erotic Literary Salon audience was honored to have Plum Dragoness perform her erotica for the first time. The audience’s response was overwhelming, it was obvious she needed to be invited back as a featured performer. http://new.plumdragoness.com/
PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 60 or more individuals. Approximately 20 participate as writers, readers, storytellers, spoken word performers of original works/words of others, the rest just come to listen, enjoy and applaud. Frances, our resident nonagenarian (94 years young) often recites her original erotica.
Salons gather the 3rd Tuesday of every month at TIME (The Bohemian Absinthe Lounge), 1315 Sansom Street, Center City, Philadelphia. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. (limited seating), for cocktails, food and conversation. The event begins promptly at 8:00 p.m. Admission is $10, discounted for readers, students, and seniors (65+) to $8. Salon attendees must be 21.
Creator of this event, Dr. Susana, is Philadelphia’s best-known sexologist. She lends her voice to the Salon by offering relevant information to support the discussions that arise in the Salon/blog.
“…surprisingly comfortable….Salon devotees praise her for the space she has created….”
“I think Susana is doing a very brave thing.”
