The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, December 19. The evening will start with the Adult Sex-Ed Salon a one-hour program devoted to sex and sexuality. The audience will have the opportunity to pose any questions regarding sex and sexuality anonymously. Sexologist Susana Mayer, PhD, along with co-host Walter will facilitate the Adult Sex-Ed Salon and attendees interested in sharing their knowledge and experiences will join in the discussion. This is always an extremely lively, audience driven Q & A period.
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 10-15 attendees participate as writers, readers, storytellers, spoken word performers of original works, some read, “missed connections” and “romance” shorts from Craig’s list. The rest of the attendees come to listen, enjoy and applaud. Sign-up to read at the door, but you must have attended one Salon previously. Guidelines at the Salon’s website.
Salons gather the 3rd Tuesday of every month at TIME (The Bohemian Absinthe Lounge), 1315 Sansom Street, Center City, Philadelphia. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., for cocktails, food and conversation. Adult Sex-Ed between 7:00-8:00, readings begin at approximately 8:30. Admission is $12, discounted for students and seniors to $10. 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 and blog.
“…surprisingly comfortable….Salon devotees praise her for the space she has created….”
“I think Susana is doing a very brave thing.”

“There are laughter and tears along with the hot rush of blood – to the face.

NOT an open mic Salon at the museum – curated event
MARIJUANA AND MARRIAGE
For those who haven’t heard, Washington State recently passed two laws.They legalized gay marriage and also legalized marijuana.The fact that gay marriage and marijuana were legalized on the same day makes perfect Biblical sense.
Leviticus 20:13 says: “If a man lies with another man they should be stoned”.Apparently we just hadn’t interpreted it correctly before!(sent by one of the Salon attendees, thank you Martha)
Do come prepared to share your writing, perhaps volunteer to read from the Craig’s list personals or just listen, enjoy and applaud. But be prepared for the unexpected, because at every Salon there is always a reader that shares work that speaks to someone, and that someone might be you. Hope to see you tonight.
