Topic – Reverend Dr. Beverly Dale will give a quick run through of the key biblical words and passages that will shake up your ideas and open the door to sex positive views. “We’ll look past biblical misogyny with its procreative bias and instead discover sexual freedom, pleasure and diversity!”
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 (97 years young) occasionally recites her original erotica.
