The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, Sept 15. Dhami Boo will be performing an epic poem of anal enlightenment, The Sun Within the Moon and the 69 of Life, as well as Himalayan Rhapsody, a performance medley of poetry and Kathmandu haiku from the forthcoming book, Driving to God in a Handbasket, self accompanied on a Nepali jaw harp and a homemade mouth bow.
An experienced horse drawn farmer, hooker, healer, artist, and esl teacher, with a queer perspective, Dhami Boo has a lot of gritty, memoir-able material. He teaches Reiki and Erotic Reiki. His performances of poetic tales of ecstatic consciousness have left a trail of smoking pubes from Bangkok to San Francisco and points east. He’s been published in RFD magazine, the St. James Infirmary’s Occupational Health and Safety Handbook, and anonymously, by editor’s mistake, in Sterry’s sex worker anthology (Unconditional Love at Beck’s in Johns, Marks, Tricks and Chickenhawks). . You can find him at www.dhamiboo.com.
Prior to Readings – Adult Sex-Ed
Topic – Sex as a Healing Modality: Erotic Reiki and More – lead by Dhami Boo
Sex as a Healing Modality: Erotic Reiki and More
Dhami Boo will present his experiences of sexual energy as a healing modality and how he came to develop the modality of Erotic Reiki. When we view our sex lives through the lens of sexual healing, we see our relationships and encounters as paths to growth and transformation. When we put this intention in our lovemaking and erotic play, we create a ritual for change and healing. Amazing things happen in the breath of an orgasm. Erotic Reiki is one modality that espouses these techniques, but it all comes down to intention. And awareness. Dhami Boo has practiced and taught Erotic Reiki for over a decade around the world.
Approximately twenty attendees will also entertain with their 5-minute erotica, sex memoirs, rants, short stories and poetry.
PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 65 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 (98 years young) will recite her original erotica/sex journals.
