The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, August 21. At this month’s Salon, the Poetry Whores of The Philadelphia Poetry Brothel will give us a sneak peak into a fantasy world that blurs the lines between literature and liaison. Created in New York, with branches in Barcelona, Los Angeles, and Chicago, The Poetry Brothel will be making its Philadelphia debut at the Fringe Fest as part of The Secret Order of the Libertines: An Intimate Revolution.
Set in a Victorian bordello, The Philadelphia Poetry Brothel feels right at home sharing its (ahem) wares at The Bohemian Absinthe Lounge. A FREE raffle for private readings with the Poetry Whores of your choice will be offered at the Salon, because reading should be pleasurable.

PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 70 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 (95 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 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 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.
