Reminder-Tuesday-January 16-The Erotic Literary Salon-Live, The Sweet Spot-January 18-Free Raffle

This Tuesday you will have the opportunity once again to ask your sex questions anonymously, win a book from Susana Mayer’s (founder and host) extensive library of sexuality and erotica books, and also the chance to win tickets to experience The Sweet Spot.

The Sweet Spot is produced by Ainsley Burrows, the same Ainsley who was a featured presenter at the Salon several years ago. He brought the house down with his spoken word, and his famous Climax piece.

I encourage you to take the time to watch both versions of Climax. A wonderful lesson on presentation and how it impacts the words.

Ainsley having fun with the audience:

Same Climax, different version (most sultry), plus 9 more pieces:

Tonight! The Erotic Literary Salon-Live – Adult Sex-Ed, Censorship

Guest host Heather Shayne Blakeslee will be leading the Salon this evening – not to be missed.

At the Salon we usually keep politics at bay, but on this site I occasionally have the desire to rant, especially when censorship is involved.

  • vulnerable
  • entitlement
  • diversity
  • transgender
  • fetus
  • evidence-based
  • science-based

These are words the Trump Administration has banned the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) from using.

What you can do to voice your opinion and help change policy:

TONIGHT-The Erotic Literary Salon/Adult Sex-Ed Live Tuesday, November 21

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.

Diabolique Ball Dress Code

Diabolique Ball is famous for its strict dress code of Fetish, Fantasy, and Formal. If you don’t arrive wearing the appropriate attire, our fabulous and fierce Fashion Police will require that you strip down to your intimates or you will be turned away at the door. The Fashion Police are the final authority on what is permitted in the event, so who you know will not get you in if you do not comply with the mandatory dress code.

There are three tiers to the Dress Code: Theme Specific (which changes yearly), Tried and True, and Never Permitted. A copy of the Dress Code can be found on the Diabolique website, posted at the event, or with Fashion Police volunteers. The Diabolique Foundation kindly asks all patrons to please consider matters of good taste when choosing your outfit so that all our guests can feel comfortable and have fun!

Not sure what to wear or want an official ruling before the event? Feel free to contact us at fashionpolice@diaboliquephilly.comfor suggestions and advice prior to show time!

Each year’s theme always lends itself to lots of costuming ideas, from the simple to the extravagant. It doesn’t have to be difficult to find clothing that meets our standards, especially if you shop at our sponsor stores PASSIONAL Boutique, Delicious Boutique, and/or Philadelphia AIDS Thrift.
